The computer repairman at the center of the Hunter Biden laptop saga is ready to tell his side of the story.

In a new interview with the New York Post, John Paul Mac Isaac, who in 2020 alerted the FBI of incriminating emails, text messages, photos and financial documents on Biden’s infamous laptop, before turning it over to Rudy Giuliani, revealed that he’s since lost his store and now faces bankruptcy.

“I was getting a lot of death threats,” he explained. “I had to have a Wilmington trooper parked in front of my shop all the time.

Mac Issac continued, “There were multiple situations where people came in and you could tell they were not there to have a computer fixed. And if there were not other people in the shop, I don’t know what would have happened. I was having vegetables, eggs, dog shit thrown at the shop every morning.”

The former owner of The Mac Shop in Wilmington, Delaware, says that he’s endured harassment from the IRS and other government agencies, citing the difficulties he faced while attempting to file for unemployment last December.

“I would open up a case, wouldn’t hear anything, then open another case, then open another case and then I was told to stop opening up cases. And they would keep closing these cases,” he said. 

As a result, Mac Issac faces bankruptcy, adding that since closing his shop he’s been forced to work several odd jobs. 

“Bankruptcy looks like my only option,” he said. “A buddy of mine does estate clean outs, manual labor. I helped a neighbor redo their porch and I’m trying to do more with woodworking.”

Despite his hardships, Mac Issac has no regrets on ending up at the center of such a controversial story. 

“If I had the choice to do it again, I would absolutely do it again,” he said. “I was raised since 9/11 to believe if you see something you say something.”
