Arkansas Circuit Judge Holly Meyer is getting ready to find Hunter Biden in contempt of court. He refuses to turn over his financial records. If he doesn’t cough them up by Wednesday, or at least convince the judge that there is a legitimate reason for the delay, he could find himself living in a jail cell for a while. That’s a karma level “something for something,” for sure.
Meyer “ordered Biden to appear in court on Jan. 29 and ‘show cause, if any exists, as to why he should not be held in contempt’ for allegedly failing to submit the information by the court’s deadline earlier this month,” Washington Examiner reports. The son of Former Vice President Joe Biden is making Democrats on the impeachment team rather uncomfortable by generating headlines, when they’re trying real hard to cover him up. Adam Schiff had a meltdown on Tuesday when CBS asked him if it would be “fair” for Team Trump to call Hunter Biden as a witness.
Heck no, it’s not fair, Schiff exclaimed. “That’s an illegitimate abuse of the trial. And the chief justice, who may have an opportunity to rule on the materiality of witnesses, as well as the senators, should not permit that kind of abuse.” Hunter Biden is famous for his lack of responsibility, freely admitting his “crack and vodka binges,” so it’s no surprise he would try to duck out from under his child support obligations.
Instead of accepting his duties to the new life he helped create, with Lunden Alexis Roberts, he claimed the child born in August 2018 wasn’t his. They allegedly met “at a strip club that he frequented in Washington called Archibald’s.”
Judge Meyer ordered a paternity test and he flunked. The DNA test showed “with near scientific certainty” that Biden is the father. That means he’s fully responsible for child support and the child’s health care costs. Even though the test was conclusive, Biden has been dragging his feet over releasing his bank and tax records. Apparently he’s afraid of something that’s in them.
It could be even worse for his father than him if it shows more ties to the Ukraine, or other “quid pro quo” arrangements that the public doesn’t know about yet. Lawyers for Ms. Roberts say that the game of hide the ball has gone on long enough. They went to court, informing the judge that Biden’s “conduct is willful and contemptuous.” They formally asked him to turn over all his tax returns and banking records and he hasn’t.
They want to know what banks he uses, a list of the “businesses he owns or controls,” another list of “the companies he has had an ownership interest in the past five years,” and who all of his employers were in the past five years. The court has a legitimate need for that information so they can determine his child support obligations. Unfortunately for Quid Pro Joe, it also means it becomes public record. So far, Hunter won’t even disclose his address. That might be because he’s renting a pad in Hollywood for 12k a month.
That doesn’t quite add up with the story told by his ex-wife. In their divorce, court records show he blew every dime. Hunter’s paychecks all went to “drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs, and gifts for women with whom he had sexual relations.” Not the kind of behavior you expect from someone who sat on the board of directors for a Ukrainian oil company.
So far, Hunter Biden has three children with his ex-wife. The love child makes four, and the woman he married last year is also pregnant.
