First son Hunter Biden was quizzed for more than six hours Thursday as part of the civil lawsuit brought by Delaware computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, who came into possession of the privileged political scion’s now infamous laptop in 2019.
Hunter, 53, did not answer questions from a Post reporter as he left the Wilmington law firm where his deposition took place. 
Mac Isaac had sued the first son for defamation last year, alleging he left the store owner to twist in the wind for years while falsely insisting that the laptop was not his, that it had been stolen or that his information had been hacked.
Biden failed to retrieve the laptop from Mac Isaac’s store in April 2019 — despite attempts by Mac Isaac to contact him.
As part of Thursday’s deposition, Hunter was asked to turn over his unredacted bank records from April 2019.
Since the first son did not return to pick up his laptop, Mac Isaac became the computer’s legal owner.
While repairing the computer, Mac Isaac discovered emails detailing influence-peddling involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and videos of his 53-year-old son smoking crack and having sex with prostitutes and his work subordinates — prompting him to alert the FBI.
Before the feds verified the laptop in November 2019 and picked it up the following month, Mac Isaac made a copy of the hard drive. He gave it to Giuliani’s personal lawyer, Robert Costello, the following year. Giuliani then provided The Post with a copy of the hard drive in October 2020.
In March, Hunter Biden filed a countersuit alleging Mac Isaac illicitly distributed his personal data, accusing him of six counts of invasion of privacy.
Thursday’s deposition took place nine days after the Justice Department announced that he would enter a plea agreement stemming from US attorney for Delaware David Weiss’ years-long investigation into his tax affairs.
Biden agreed to plead guilty to federal tax and firearms charges in a deal with his father’s Justice Department that’s expected to carry no prison time and leave his record free of felony convictions.
The charging decision came about a month after the IRS dismissed a 13-person investigative team that worked on the case — allegedly in retaliation after supervisory agent Gary Shapley in April contacted Congress to claim a coverup featuring “preferential treatment” and alleged false testimony by Attorney General Merrick Garland about Weiss’ ability to make independent charging decisions.
Shapley and a second IRS whistleblower testified to the House Ways and Means Committee about alleged irregularities in the Hunter Biden case.
In October 2019, “the FBI became aware that a repair shop had a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden and that the laptop might contain evidence of a crime. The FBI verified its authenticity in November of 2019 by matching the device number against Hunter Biden’s Apple iCloud ID,” Shapley testified in May. 
“The FBI verified its authenticity in November of 2019 by matching the device number against Hunter Biden’s Apple iCloud ID,” Shapely said. “When the FBI took possession of the device in December 2019, they notified the IRS that it likely contained evidence of tax crimes.”
Hunter Biden is expected to appear in Wilmington federal court to enter his guilty plea July 26.
