The son of the US president has accused the store owner of invading his privacy by distributing information found on his computer

Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, filed a countersuit on Friday against the owner of the Delaware laptop repair shop where he allegedly dumped his ‘laptop from hell’, alleging a invasion of privacy – but still not admitting that the laptop is in fact his.
