Hunter Biden's legal team has sent letters titled "litigation hold" to several Trump allies asking them to preserve all records related to the alleged theft of personal data from his laptop.
The move is part of Biden's larger strategy to sue former President Trump's allies for allegedly accessing and spreading his son's personal data.
Those who received the letters include Trump confidante Roger Stone, Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon, and John Paul Mac Isaac, the laptop repairman.
This follows Hunter Biden's request last week to the Justice Department to open criminal investigations into several people in Trump's circle.
The Axios article reports that the letters were sent as part of a move to sue former President Trump's allies for allegedly accessing and spreading Hunter Biden's personal data.
The New York Post article clarifies that the letters were titled "litigation hold" and sent to 12 people, including Giuliani's lawyer and former White House adviser Steve Bannon.
Both reports include a list of those reportedly receiving letters, but the NY Post provides more details on the letter content.
Hunter Biden's legal team has been pursuing legal action against those who accessed data from his alleged abandoned laptop.
The NY Post reports that one of the letters sent by Abbe Lowell, Biden's lawyer, read, "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 Axios report describes Hunter Biden's lawyer's move as a strategy to pursue lawsuits while inquiring about the personal data's theft.
The sources differ in how they frame Hunter Biden's legal action.
Axios emphasises the strategy of pursuing lawsuits, while the NY Post centres on the content of the "litigation hold" letter.
Both reports agree that Hunter Biden's legal team is seeking to take action against another circle in Trump's circle who allegedly accessed and spread personal data from Hunter Biden's laptop.
