(LifeSiteNews) – Ever since the Daily Mail published on April 6 an article on Jack Maxey and his work on the Hunter Biden laptop in Switzerland, his work has become national news, with the Washington Times reporting on the story, as well as Newsmax TV host Eric Bolling having Maxey on for an interview. 

But with this highlighting of Maxey’s role in the investigation of the Biden family’s corruption also came the questioning of his truthfulness and of the accuracy of his claims. 

As LifeSite reported, Jack Maxey says his IT team working on the laptop found “450 gigabyte deleted material” that they were able to recover, with 80,000 photos and video and more than 120,000 archived e-mails. Maxey told LifeSiteNews that he plans to publish the content of the Hunter Biden laptop – without the lewd photos and videos – on a server very soon. He and his team have worked to make the content searchable, thereby making it much easier to work with the material. 

Two days after the Daily Mail article, Newsmax TV interviewed John Paul Mac Isaak, the computer repairman at whose shop Hunter Biden had abandoned his laptop in 2019. Responding to Jack Maxey’s statements, Mac Isaak insisted that it would not be possible to recover 450 additional megabytes off a 500-megabyte hard drive when 300 megabytes had already been found. 

“300 gigs of data on a 500 gig hard drive, leaves 200 gig free,” he said. “If there is in fact 450 gigs of data that has been newly discovered that would basically mean that drive needed to be 750 or larger for a recovery of that magnitude to take place. And the drive that I shared with Rudi Giuliani was 500 gigs.”  

“So there is 250 gigs that is coming from somewhere, and that concerns me,” the computer expert concluded. 

The Gateway Pundit, reporting on Mac Isaak’s comments, doubled down with another commentator who dismissed Jack Maxey’s work altogether as being a fake. 

However, the already published authoritative evidence speaks against any such claims. None other than the Washington Post received a copy of the laptop from Jack Maxey, and confirmed, with the help of a team of experts, its authenticity. The same applies to the Daily Mail, which has been publishing reports on Hunter Biden’s corruption based on the copy of the laptop that they, too, received from Maxey. Finally, as Maxey recently revealed, he found among the deleted material encryption keys that belong to the communication system of the Department of the Defense (DoD), thereby threatening national security. As his colleague and former intelligence officer Sam Faddis revealed, Jack Maxey was able to contact people inside DoD who took these keys down and thanked him for this information. 

This evidence alone should be sufficient proof for Jack Maxey’s truthfulness. 

But now Jack Maxey has received support from another computer specialist, whose statement was published by Faddis. 

But before we go into this matter, let us ask the following question: why would Jack Maxey put his life at risk and leave his own homeland in order to work on the laptop, if it were a fake? 

Harry Haury, a computer specialist who worked for numerous government entities with high clearances, has come out on Sam Faddis’s AND Magazine, saying that “the issue has come up about how Jack Maxey and his team might have found a lot more data on Hunter Biden’s laptop than previously found and why the size of these files might appear much larger than the size of the original disk.” 

Explaining that erased material on a laptop actually does usually never get erased, unless one takes special steps to do so, the computer expert explained that “it is completely plausible that the copy of the hard drive Jack Maxey has contains numerous deleted files that could be recovered.” 

But he goes even further by stating that the deleted files Jack Maxey’s IT team recovered actually could have been compressed, thereby taking up much less space than usually expected. The expert wrote: 

Archived and compressed files can often reduce the file size by as much as 90%. What this means is that after extraction a 50-gigabyte compressed file might take up as much as 500 gigabytes. While not familiar with Maxey’s extraction, the claim that he has a tremendously expanded number of emails and text messages is completely believable if his copy was a bit-by-bit sector-by-sector copy or disk image.

Haury, who with this statement is putting his own name and life also at risk, made this clear and strong statement in defense of Jack Maxey: “I am an expert in cyber security and forensics and worked on and off for the Intelligence Community, Department of State, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, FEMA, Treasury, and others for decades. The current attacks on what Jack Maxey has found regarding the size of the extracted files are irrelevant.” 

At the same time, the cyber security specialist is now calling out the FBI itself, which received a copy of the same laptop in late 2019. Haury stated that “if the FBI has the original in their possession, a thorough and professional cyber forensic investigation should be done by the NSA immediately.”
