The judge in Hunter Biden’s paternity case is demanding he appear in court or risk contempt after failing to provide pertinent financial documents in a timely manner.
The Washington Examiner’s Spencer Neale reports:
The son of former Vice President Joe Biden is embroiled in a paternity battle with Lunden Roberts, a former Washington, D.C., stripper who went by the name “Dallas.” Biden, 48, has relinquished custody rights to the child he fathered with Roberts, 28, but he has continued to fight his financial obligations for the child named “NJR” in court documents.
On Monday, Independence County Circuit Judge Holly Meyer sent Biden’s legal team an “Order to Appear and Show Cause” after Biden missed the mid-January financial deadline. Biden “continues to act as though he has no respect for this court, its orders, the legal process in this state, or the needs of his child for support,” wrote Roberts lawyer Clinton Lancaster.
In a Nov. 27 affidavit, Biden told the court that he has been unemployed since May and has no monthly income.
His team claimed his finances and location would be used against him as President Trump and Republican allies have ratcheted up their attacks against Biden in the past month, asking specifically, “Where is Hunter?”, on Twitter, interviews, and campaign rallies. The president’s reelection campaign also began selling T-shirts that read, “Where’s Hunter?”
Senate Republicans have called for Biden to testify in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial for his suspicious appointment to the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings. Now, some Democrats appear receptive to the idea provided former national security adviser John Bolton testifies as well
