Could Hunter Biden Destroy His Father’s 2024 Campaign? Joe Biden Should Worry
It is possible – here’s what could happen next:
In a blog post published over the weekend, legal analysts Jonathan Turley revealed how Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, could see his legal problems get significantly worse.
And that means, of course, Hunter Biden’s continues problems could be a problem for his father, President Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden: His Current Legal Woes
The president’s son faces possible charges relating to several tax offenses and a separate case involving the purchase of a handgun.
A report from the Washington Post earlier in May revealed how the first son could be charged with making a false statement when purchasing a handgun in 2018.
Hunter Biden claimed while purchasing the gun that he was not addicted to illegal drugs, despite his well-documented history of drug abuse.
Prosecutors are also considering charges against Biden for failing to file taxes in 2016 and 2017.
While Hunter Biden claims to have already paid millions in back taxes, he still faces the possibility of criminal charges for failing to file his tax returns in time.
Outside of possible criminal proceedings, the first son is also wrapped up in an ongoing Delaware paternity case.
After fathering a child with former stripper Lunden Roberts, Biden and the rest of his family – including President Joe Biden – have refused to acknowledge a 2019 DNA test that confirmed the child is his.
Hunter Biden is fighting in the courts to reduce his child support payments to the child’s mother, and was accused of “playing games” in the latest court papers.
What Did Turley Warn?
Turley, a professor of public interest law at George Washington University, said that if Lunden Roberts’ attorneys are successful in bringing forward a number of witnesses to testify about Hunter Bidens’ true income, it could spell serious trouble.
Referencing a list of witnesses prepared by Roberts’ attorneys, Turley noted how business partners “connected to millions of dollars acquired from foreign interests In China, Ukraine, and other countries” could soon be forced to speak out about their relationships with Hunter Biden.
“The costs of these proceedings and high-priced legal team would seem to undermine claims of financial distress by Biden. However, by putting his financial worth at issue, Hunter has opened up a new front in battling over the disclosure of his past dealings,” Turley wrote.
“Some of his past associates are reportedly cooperating with House investigators in tracking foreign payments,” he added, warning that even partisan newspapers won’t be able to hide the story.
Turley pointed to an article from the Washington Post which admitted how serious the scandal could become, with a lawsuit over Hunter Biden’s unacknowledged child potentially revealing the details of a long-rumored influence peddling scheme.
If Hunter Biden’s associates do testify in the Arkansas case, it could potentially create one of the biggest scandals for a sitting president in modern American history…right before a presidential election.
