Hunter’s laptop repairman John Paul Mac Isaac sued CNN, Politico, the Daily Beast, and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for defamation Tuesday.
Mac Isaac told the New York Post the congressman and establishment media falsely accused him of trafficking Russian disinformation during the 2020 presidential campaign.
The suit reportedly claims, “CNN’s broadcast of the false statement accuses the Plaintiff of committing an infamous crime, i.e., treason by working with the Russians to commit a crime against the United States of America by attempting to undermine American democracy and the 2020 Presidential election.”
Mac Isaac’s accusations will play out in court, but numerous times he was the brunt of left-wing talking points. For instance, CNN’s Brian Stelter falsely labeled Hunter’s laptop “Russian disinformation” and suggested the laptop contents may have been “made up.” In March, Stelter refused to walk back to this reporter the false claims he promoted on his program.
