Hunter Biden Ordered To Appear In Court After Latest Stunt Backfires

Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is in big trouble once again.
An Arkansas judge has ordered Hunter Biden to appear before a court Jan. 29 to explain why he shouldn’t be held in contempt for his failure to produce information about his finances in relation to a heated child support dispute.
Hunter apparently thought his family name was powerful enough and that he did not have to ever appear in court -- but all of that is about to change.
Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer ordered Hunter to appear in court to “show cause, if any exists, as to why he should not be held in contempt for any of the alleged violations of this Court’s orders.”
The order came the same day an attorney for the mother of Hunter’s child, Lunden Roberts, accused Hunter of failing to abide by a court-mandated deadline to disclose a deluge of information, including a list of all companies he owns or controls, his sources of income and employers for the past five years, unredacted copies of his tax returns, copies of deeds to properties he owns and more.
Biden has even refused to provide the address in which he resides and his telephone number, Roberts’s attorney Clinton Lancaster said in his filing Monday.
All of this relates to a recently taken DNA test revealing that Hunter fathered a baby with Lunden Roberts -- a former stripper who now lives in Arkansas -- while he was married to his brother's widow.
Hunter’s “conduct is willful and contemptuous,” Lancaster told the court.
He “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,” Lancaster added. “This court should take some action that will make the defendant follow court orders and a believer in the rule of law.”
The court is also seeking financial records from Hunter relating to his work with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
Hunter is in hot water over his shady business deals in Ukraine that resulted in him sitting on the board of a corrupt gas company that paid him $50,000 a month in exchange for him possibly encouraging his father, who was the vice president at the time, to back-off calling for investigations into the company.
The IRS placed a tax lien on Hunter Biden for $112,805 in unpaid taxes from 2015, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
Here's the cherry on top: Hunter has also been accused of a $156 million money laundering scheme.
Just consider how mind-blowing this entire case is.
The son of the former vice president fathered a baby with a former stripper while he was married to the woman who was previously married to his own brother before he passed away from cancer.
And now Hunter has been accused of a taking part in a $156 million money laundering scheme.
