Hunter Biden’s lawyer recently asserted that Hunter “did not financially benefit” his father, President Biden, through his business transactions. Nevertheless, certain communications from 2019 seem to challenge this assertion.
Abbe Lowell, Hunter’s aggressive defender, stated unequivocally in a recent discussion that President Biden was never a part of, nor profited from, any of Hunter’s past business activities.
“Hunter never mixed business with his father,” Lowell commented on a CNN segment. “He never directed any business funds to his father. And, as available records show, his father, like any caring parent, supported Hunter when he needed assistance.”
However, the authenticity of Lowell’s claims is questionable, especially when considering text messages and emails from Hunter’s forgotten laptop, previously disclosed by Fox News Digital.
In a text from January 2019, Hunter seemed agitated with his daughter, Naomi, mentioning that his father had him give up half of his income.
“For the past 30 years, I’ve been the one taking care of this family’s expenses. It’s tough. But rest assured, unlike Dad, I won’t demand half of your earnings,” Hunter’s message read.
In 2018, during a WhatsApp conversation with his uncle, Hunter expressed his irritation with Jill Biden, the current first lady, after she rejected an idea about him taking up a teaching position, pointing to his need to sober up first in order to financially support his family.
“I’ve borne the financial responsibilities for our family, including some expenses you should have handled, for the last 24 years,” Hunter voiced.
Additionally, in a 2018 message, Hunter mentioned covering his father’s bills for over ten years, drawing criticism from some Republican representatives.
“With so many intervening, there are bound to be complications,” he typed on April 12, 2018. “Experienced this 10 days back too. What’s the need? I’ll be visiting the bank shortly. Need to confirm my identity in person.”
“I need to clear the AT&T dues,” responded Hunter’s aide, Katie Dodge.
