However, Jack Maxey now says that he has more than 450 gigabytes of deleted materials as well as 80,000 images and videos as well as some 120,000 emails that he plans to release in batches soon that will fully expose the depth of Hunter Biden's depravity as well as the criminal corruption engulfing his entire family -- including President Joe Biden.
Maxey first gave copies of the laptop's hard drive to the media and lawmakers roughly a year ago. In addition to providing one to The Daily Mail, he "gave copies and material from it to the Washington Post, New York Times, and Senator Chuck Grassley in his role as ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee – but he claims they all sat on it for months," the outlet reported this week.
The paper added:
For the past two weeks, Maxey has been in hiding in Zurich, working with IT experts to dig out more data from the 'laptop from hell'.
He said he intends to post them all online in a searchable database in the coming weeks.
Hunter's laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by him and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution.
Hunter abandoned his laptop at a Delaware computer store in 2019. The owner, John Mac Isaac, gave a copy to Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who passed it on to Maxey.
"I came here so that we could do a forensic examination of Hunter's laptop safely in a country that still respects human liberty and the ideals of liberal democratic principles," Maxey told The Daily Mail.
"I do not believe this would have been possible inside the United States. We had numerous attempts on us from trying to do things like this there," he added.
He went on to say that last year, after giving out copies of the hard drive to media and lawmakers, black SUVs appeared outside his home. He also said that U.S. intelligence officials, who are friends of his that he said he shared the hard drive with, told him they received strange phone calls.
"I showed this to a friend of mine in desperation in February  because nobody would listen to me. No news organizations would take it. In fact, the very first major news organization to take it was the Daily Mail," he said. "Very dear friends of mine, the sharp tip of the spear, were making welfare calls to me every day, basically to see if I was still alive."
He went on to say that a senior intelligence official who is a friend told him shortly after Maxey first obtained the hard drive in the fall of 2020: "If you don't release enough of this so that they know you can release all of it, I'm telling you, brother, you're a dead man."
He took that advice, in fact, and began posting materials to various file-share sites. But, he said, within a few hours, they were removed. He also said he believes the U.S. government was searching for the files and when they were discovered, flagged them to the companies that hosted them.
"There were five drop boxes: two in the United States, one in New Zealand, two in the UK. All the same drop boxes in which they tell us child pornography is shared around the globe without any consequence because they can't look at it," said Maxey.
"These are all Five Eyes countries, English-speaking countries in an intelligence-sharing agreement. And they were all ripped down," he added. "So this means that our intelligence services, who still have not even acknowledged that they have Hunter Biden's laptop, were obviously diligently doing cache searches across the internet to find out if any of this stuff was being released.
"That should terrify every single decent person in the West."
He said he chose to flee to Switzerland because the only files that were not taken down were posted to file-sharing sites in the politically neutral country.
