Court Orders Hunter Biden Hands Over Past 3 Years of Tax Returns
Arkansas judge demands tax docs, Joe Biden's son fires lawyer in child support case
Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, has been ordered by an Arkansas judge to surrender his last three years of tax returns to the court, according to breaking reports.
The judge's demand is the latest bombshell in the child support case against the younger Biden, who has been at the center of the Ukraine corruption scandal with his 2020 Democrat father over recent months.
As Neon Nettle reported on Sunday, Hunter Biden filed a legal request over the weekend to hide his financial records amid his ongoing child support battle, fearing the information could cause public "embarrassment."
But despite being previously paid a substantial monthly salary during his time on the board of Burisma, Biden is now claiming he is unemployed with no monthly income and has “significant debt.”
Biden's filing stated that there's a "likelihood that [Hunter'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."
Biden's attorney argues that given "the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the parties involved in this matter, it is in the interest of justice and necessary for a Protective Order to be in place."
According to News Thud, Biden also fired his lawyer when the court delivered its ruling during the hearing, signaling he is in bigger trouble than previously suspected.
Biden, 49, reportedly blew off the hearing and was not in the second-floor courtroom in Batesville, Arkansas, when the judge delivered the verdict.
His attorney, former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, abruptly quit upon learning he was being discharged.
But Lunden Roberts, 28, the woman who claims the son of former Vice President Joe Biden fathered her child, was sitting in the front row of the spectators’ gallery wearing three-inch black heels.
Biden is said to have met Roberts when she was working as a stripper in a "gentlemen’s club" in Washington D.C.
In the hearing, Judge Don McSpadden said he would need at least three years of Biden’s tax returns before he could reach a decision on monetary support for the child, whose sex has not been revealed.
Over the weekend, Biden filed a request to seal all financial records to spare himself public "embarrassment" amid claims of "significant debts."
In his motion to withdraw, Biden's lawyer McDaniel said Biden’s personal lawyer had "advised" him that he was being fired.
"Counsel will take all steps reasonably practical to protect defendant’s interests and make every effort to ensure an efficient and judicious transition for new counsel." McDaniel wrote.
Judge McSpadden also ordered Biden’s team to provide Roberts with a valid address and phone number for him so papers can be properly served.
McSpadden made clear to all sides that he did not want anyone discussing the case in public.
"This child is more important than anyone else in this case," he said.
