Much to his father’s dismay, Hunter Biden just can’t stay out of the news.
Not only has a judge recused himself, but a new character (Joel Caplan) has entered the story, pointing a finger at Hunter.
Hunter has been crying ‘poor’ with respect to child support. Which seems odd, considering where he calls home. At this point, dad probably wishes he’d had the good sense to ‘pull some strings’ and get the baby-momma looked after some other way. Because now Hunter’s drama is bleeding into dad’s presidential hopes.
The son of former Vice President Joe Biden shares a ZIP code in the Hollywood Hills with celebrities such as Ben Affleck, Christina Aguilera and Halle Berry, according to documents filed in Hunter’s Arkansas paternity case.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom mid-century home is valued at $2.5 million. It sits at the end of a private gated drive and includes a pool.
There has been a new development in attempts to access Hunter Biden’s financial history for this case.
As of 10:20 on the last day of the decade, the presiding judge pulled the plug on his involvement with the case. He didn’t give any specific explanation for why.
The judge in Hunter Biden’s Arkansas paternity case has recused.
Independence County Circuit Judge Don McSpadden filed an order at 10:20 a.m. Tuesday saying he was recusing “pursuant to the Administrative Plan of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit.”
A hearing in the case was scheduled for Tuesday. Attorneys for Lunden Alexis Roberts had urged the judge to find Biden in contempt of court at that hearing for not providing financial information for the past five years.
“One of the clearest indicators of a judge’s integrity is when he or she recuses from a case,” said Clinton Lancaster, one of Roberts’ attorneys. “It highlights the ethos and values that make the judiciary such a powerful, separate branch of government. Our client sincerely thanks Judge McSpadden for his time and attention to what has become a difficult and convoluted child support matter.”
What was the plot twist?
The plot twist was a corroborating witness claiming Biden had helped con him out of a fortune, in a scheme involving Chinese nationals.
Shokin’s witness statement was submitted to the court as part of Joel Caplan’s motion this week to try and become a party in Roberts’ paternity case with Biden.
He claimed in Monday’s filing that he wanted in on the case so he could get his hands on Biden’s bank account records in order to prove he allegedly received $1.5 billion from Chinese companies that ‘hustled Americans out of their life savings’.
Caplan told Judge Don McSpadden to ‘follow the money’ and in a 30-page filing, lays out how he was allegedly swindled out of 10 years of his life savings in a ‘multi-billion dollar stock scheme known as the China Hustle.’
Caplan, who filed papers from Jerusalem, Israel, claims many Chinese nationals made fortunes from the ploy, which involved presenting fake company documents and claiming they were genuine investments when they were actual frauds.
Remember how Hunter was supposedly using his wealth to be the ‘provider’ for the Biden clan, including Joe?
Suddenly it really DOES matter where all that money was coming from… and whether of it can be traced back to the US taxpayer.
Will Biden come to regret all those taunts for Trump to ‘come clean’ with his financial dealings?
Does Sleepy Joe have a few financial skeletons in the closet he’d rather we didn’t look too closely at?
No WONDER his first instinct was his flat out refusal of the right of Senate to subpoena Joe or Hunter concerning their role in Ukraine.
The plot thickens.
