Hunter Biden has asked a judge in Arkansas to delay his ongoing paternity case until after Election Day… because of “coronavirus.”
But some Republicans are claiming that Biden’s real goal is to prevent turning over damning financial information to the courts before his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, has to face voters on November 3. Biden has been accused of exploiting his father’s position to enrich himself with sweetheart deals from Ukraine and China.
“After months of hiding, one has to wonder if the reason Hunter Biden continues to defy the court is because there are financial documents that could shed light on his father’s massive conflicts of interest as vice president,” said RNC spokesman Steve Guest on Sunday.
Lunden Roberts–the stripper who gave birth to Biden’s child in August 2018–has also slammed Hunter for dragging his feet on financial documents. Her legal team has urged the court to hold him in contempt.
Biden’s legal team, however, has argued to the court that there’s too much “personal endangerment” for the former Second Son to head to Arkansas.
“Defendant’s wife’s due date is imminent,” his legal team has argued. “Defendant will supplement this motion as soon as possible with an affidavit of his wife’s treating physician.”
They also argued that “it is unsafe for the Defendant to travel, as travel restrictions have been implemented both domestically and internationally, particularly on airlines, due to the Coronavirus. Setting aside personal endangerment, Defendant reasonably believes that such travel unnecessarily exposes his wife and unborn child to this virus.”
However, the request to delay until after the election may fall on deaf ears: Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer is reportedly fed up with Biden’s constant delays–telling lawyers last month, “He needs to make himself available unless his hair is on fire.”
