The mother of Hunter Biden’s baby just scored a huge victory for those interested in Joe Biden’s controversial son and his dealings as part of a board member of a Ukrainian oil company, Daily Mail reports.
Lunden Roberts, Hunter’s baby mama, has been pursuing legal action in order to obtain child support for their 16-month-old baby. The deposition for this case is scheduled to take place just before Christmas on 23 December in Little Rock, Arkansas. Biden is required to bring all of his financial records and should expect questions about his income related to Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian-headquartered entity he served on the board of.
Roberts filed 47 requests for admission from Biden and his attorneys, mostly about his business dealings. One curious inclusion is the accusation that the younger Biden “received money from a Chinese person or entity for foreign and domestic investment purposes.”
A seven-page document filed on Monday includes 47 requests for information related to his income, including six demanding submission of his income taxes between 2013-2018.
Daily Mail reports that Biden has refused to pay the legal expenses Roberts has taken on while pursuing this case, a goodly sum amounting to over $11,000.
Unfortunately, the public will be unlikely to see any of these records since the judge presiding over the case has promised to seal all financial records submitted to the court:
The public is unlikely to see Biden’s records though as McSpadden has made it clear he will seal all the financial records. He filed a motion for a protective order citing fears that release of his financial information would be used ‘maliciously’ by the media.
‘The likelihood that [Biden’s] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court,’ the filing read.
McSpadden said he was including McDaniel in the letter even though he realized he no longer represents Biden. He said he had no contact information for Biden and asked McDaniel to pass on the letter on to his former client. McDaniel said on Monday he was quitting due to an ‘irreconcilable conflict.’
