Hunter Biden Files Lawsuit Against Former Trump White House Aide Over Laptop Content

Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against former Trump White House aide Garrett Ziegler for his alleged involvement in spreading content pertaining to Biden’s infamous laptop.

Ziegler, a former aide to White House trade adviser Peter Navarro, has been accused of improperly “accessing, tampering with, manipulating, altering, copying and damaging computer data that they do not own,” violating California’s state computer fraud laws.

The former aid and ten unnamed defendants allegedly had access to the computer content and circulated “tens of thousands of emails, thousands of photos, and dozens of videos and recordings” across the internet.

“While Defendant Ziegler is entitled to his extremist and counterfactual opinions, he has no right to engage in illegal activities to advance his right-wing agenda,” wrote Hunter Biden’s attorneys. “Yet that is precisely what Defendant Ziegler and his so-called ‘nonprofit research group’ … have done.”

Biden’s lawsuit seeks a jury trial to determine appropriate damages.

According to ABC News, the lawsuit describes Ziegler as a “zealot who has waged a sustained, unhinged and obsessed campaign against [Hunter Biden] and the entire Biden family for more than two years.”

Reporting from Newsmax:

In March, Hunter Biden sued John Paul Mac Isaac claiming the computer repair shop owner didn't have the legal right to distribute the information they maintained was private.


Early last month, a potential plea deal between Hunter Biden and the Justice Department collapsed after attorneys for both sides failed to finalize an agreement. Biden has pleaded not guilty to charges of failing to pay taxes on more than $1.5 million in income in 2017 and 2018 despite owing more than $100,000. He also could face a gun charge.
