HUNTER BIDEN, the son of the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, used a "flimsy password to 'secure sex & drugs' proof and sensitive info on the Clintons, Obamas, and celebs", it has been revealed.
The 50-year-old businessman used the password "Hunter02" to secure his laptop in what has been described as a "national security nightmare".
Back in April 2019, Hunter took his computer to an IT store in Delaware to get it repaired but never returned to the store to collect it.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the laptop contained; Joe Biden's personal mobile and three private email addresses as well as the names of his Secret Service agents; phone numbers for Bill and Hilary Clinton, and almost every member of Barack Obama's former cabinet and phone numbers for 1,500 celebs and well-known people including the ex-FBI boss Louis Freeh and Coldplay's Chris Martin.
As well as the Clintons the laptop contained contact numbers for two very powerful political leaders: Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi ad Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell.
Precious personal information including Hunter's passport, driver's licence, social security card, credit cards and bank statements were on the laptop.
Most damning of the personal information included "selfies" of Hunter engaging in sex acts and smoking crack cocaine.
Last night IT expert Chris Greany told the Mail on Sunday that it was "staggering" that the laptop had not been encrypted.
"It's a data breach and dangerous to have this type of material floating around," said the former police commander.
"For someone prominent, there is not only a risk of great reputational damage but also a risk of blackmail should the material fall into the wrong hands."
Today the former police commander for financial and cybercrime tweeted how "remarkable" the story.
"I would have hoped prominent people by now would be starting to realise this. A complete failure of OPSEC?" he tweeted.
Last night, a source familiar with the contents of the MacBook Pro said: "The sheer volume of personal and financial information indicates Hunter has been potential blackmail fodder for years.
"It seems almost inconceivable that Hunter Biden, the son of the man likely to become our next President, was so naive and reckless that he did not have basic encryption or even a two-stage password to protect such highly sensitive material."
Last night, lawyers for Hunter declined to comment.
Representatives for Mr. Biden did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
'SECOND LAPTOP FOUND'
It comes as reports claim that federal authorities have allegedly seized a second laptop belonging to Hunter Biden in a raid on celebrity psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow’s office earlier this year
Another laptop purportedly belonging to Joe Biden’s son was taken by the Drug Enforcement Administration in February, NBC News reported on Friday.
Two sources told the news outlet that the laptop was taken when the feds executed a search warrant on Ablow’s office in Massachusetts.
Ablow, a psychiatrist, had his medical license suspended after he allegedly sexually exploited patients, among other accusations of professional misconduct.
Ablow has denied the allegations and hasn’t been charged with any crimes.
Earlier this month the FBI were reportedly in possession of Hunter's laptop.
FBI and Justice Department officials also concurred with an assessment from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, who claimed the laptop is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign, according to Fox News.
'CORRUPT POLITICAL CLASS'
The news comes just two days before the presidential election.
Today President Trump faced off with Joe Biden in battleground states as the former veep campaigned with Barack Obama for the first time.
Trump, speaking at a Pennsylvania rally, slammed his opponent as a part of the “corrupt political class” and “not equipped to lead America” as he raged against "Washington insiders."
The commander-in-chief also ripped Obama for hitting the campaign trail with Biden this weekend.
“I said that’s good, he campaigned for Hillary. How did that work out?” Trump said.
Trump also slammed Obama and Biden, who teamed up for an invite-only rally in Flint, Michigan – which has suffered an ongoing public health crisis since 2014 caused by drinking water contaminated with lead.
“Biden & Obama owe a massive apology to the People of Flint. The water was poisoned on their watch. Not only did they fail them, Biden proudly accepted the endorsement of disastrous Gov Rick Snyder!” Trump raged on Twitter.
He continued: “Unlike Biden, I will always stand with the People of the Great State of MICHIGAN!”
