The high-powered and expensive legal team behind Hunter Biden has sent a “litigation hold” letter to 14 people, including Rudy Giuliani and Tony Bobulinski, to preserve records regarding Hunter’s infamous laptop.
Critics have described the move as a public relations tactic attempting to change the narrative about Biden family corruption.
According to NBC News, Hunter Biden’s letter requests that the individuals “preserve potential evidence for future lawsuits related to the alleged theft of personal data that may include information from his laptop.”
The owner of the computer repair shop where Hunter Biden abandoned his laptop is included in the recipients of the letter, along with Roger Stone, lawyer Robert Costello, ex-Trump aide Garrett M. Ziegle, former Biden family business partner Tony Bobulinski and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also served as an attorney for former President Donald Trump.
“You have made various statements and engaged in certain activities by your own admission, or that have been publicly reported in the media, concerning our client, Robert Hunter Biden (‘Mr. Biden’). This letter (‘Notice’) constitutes notice that a litigation hold should be in effect for the preservation and retention of all records and documents related to Mr. Biden,” the letters state.
In a statement to NBC News, a member of Hunter Biden’s legal team claimed that he is trying to protect his “family” from supposed attacks regarding the Biden family’s business dealings overseas in countries including Ukraine, Russia, and China.
“We are going back to 2008 to ensure we capture the extensive — and sustained — attacks on the Biden family,” the statement read.
Reacting to the news, Mike Davis — founder and president of the Article III Project — described the letter as a “desperate, frivolous, and laughable” effort.
Davis argued that the letters will only hurt the Biden family’s legal position, due to the fact that any lawsuit would lead to discovery — a legal process where Hunter would be deposed on camera.
“This is a desperate, frivolous, and laughable attempt to silence political critics of President Biden and his corrupt family,” Davis told Breitbart News. “It won’t work, and it will backfire—legally and politically—on the Bidens.”
“I hope Hunter Biden is stupid enough to file a lawsuit because the discovery—including Hunter’s videotaped deposition—will be manna from Heaven,” he added.
The letters come in the midst of Hunter Biden’s apparent attempt to fight in the public relations battle between House Republican investigators and his high-powered legal team.
In comments to Breitbart News, experts revealed that the president’s son could be paying over $100,000 per month for his legal defense.
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Hunter Biden may be weighing whether to finance his legal team by creating a fund that donors can contribute to — but there has been little transparency regarding these donors.
These aren’t the first letters sent by Hunter’s legal team, as the Department of Justice’s National Security Division and the Delaware Attorney General’s Office have both received letters demanding they investigate individuals who have shared information from his abandoned laptop.

While President Joe Biden claims that “the public isn’t going to pay attention” to the nine different Republican probes into his family, recent polling shows otherwise.
A Rasmussen Reports poll showed that 61% of voters believe Joe Biden was probably consulted about and even profited from his son’s overseas business deals, with 44% saying that it is very likely.
