John Paul Mac Isaac, the computer repair shop owner that reportedly received Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop, said that he has a condition that affects his eyesight, and “can’t be 100% sure” it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer, according to Fox News.

“I just don’t know what to say, or what I’m allowed to say,” Isaac said. “I know that I saw, I saw stuff. And I was concerned.”
“I was concerned that somebody might want to come looking for this stuff eventually and I wanted it out of my shop.”
“If I’m somebody that has no journalistic ability, no detective ability or investigative ability and I was able to find stuff in a short period of time, somebody else should have been able to find something to show,” Isaac said.
“I wanted — above all, I wanted safety and security,” Isaac said.
“I wanted anonymity. I wanted just to be [able] to wash my hands of it, and like it never happened. And that did not happen.”
Isaac said the man who he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off three laptops at his store in April 2019, only one of which was salvageable. While repairing the laptop, Isaac said he discovered disturbing material.

In September, he contacted an intermediary about the emails. The intermediary then contacted the FBI.
Isaac said the intermediary is an American citizen who he has known for decades, but declined to provide further details about their identity.
According to Isaac’s account, the FBI first made a forensic copy of the laptop, then returned weeks later with a subpoena and confiscated it. When he stopped hearing from the FBI, Isaac said he contacted several members of Congress, who did not respond. At that point, his intermediary reached out to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello.
