Hunter Biden's attorney Kevin Morris was caught smoking from a water pipe or "bong" outside of his Los Angeles, California, home during a meeting with his high-profile client, Breitbart reported. The photos showing Morris on his balcony with the device appeared in the UK Daily Mail on Friday.
The type of bong Morris was seen with is most often used to smoke marijuana, which is a controlled substance in man parts of the nation. In California, it is legal to use marijuana.
It's unclear what Morris was burning in the bong. However, it's notable that Hunter Biden has publicly admitted to struggling with drug abuse in the past, and Morris would be irresponsible to expose an addict to the mind-altering substance.
The incident occurred as President Joe Biden's son recently pled guilty to federal tax charges and a bevy of other scandals pile up. Morris, who is an entertainment lawyer by trade, has been heavily involved in cleaning up Hunter Biden's affairs.
As his retained counsel, Morris assisted Hunter Biden by forking over $2 million to the IRS on his behalf to pay off a tax liability. The attorney also paid for the younger Biden's Malibu, California, apartment to the tune of $30,000 per month.
Morris is helping Hunter Biden navigate his budding art career as many wonder whether this isn't another avenue to run a pay-for-play scheme. "Hunter Biden should cancel this art sale because he knows the prices are based on his dad’s job," Walter Shaub, who was head of the Office of Government Ethics under Joe Biden's two predecessors, said last July, Vox reported.
"Shame on POTUS if he doesn’t ask Hunter to stop. If that fails, he should ask that the names of buyers be released & pledge to notify us if any buyer ever meets with admin officials," Shaub added, addressing concerns that Hunter Biden was really selling access and not art.
Morris also oversees Skaneateles LLC, which has a 10% share in the Chinese Communist Party-back BHR Partners. The company was coincidentally founded in 2013 in the days following Hunter and then-vice president Joe Biden's trip to China.
The most recent addition to Morris's to-do list could include his client's involvement in alleged bribery from Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Hunter and Joe Biden were named in FBI form FD-1023 released publicly by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Thursday with this revelation from a confidential informant.
According to the source, Hunter and Joe Biden received $5 million each in exchange for help getting a Ukrainian prosecutor fired, Fox News reported. The prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was investigating corruption at Burisma as the company was attempting to broker a lucrative deal.
Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from Ukraine unless Shokin was fired, which he successfully strongarmed the country to do. At the time, the move was made under the guise of Shokin not being tough enough on corruption.
Yet these revelations are compelling evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement courtesy of Joe Biden. However, it was then-President Donald Trump who was accused of it in 2019 after pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to investigate the Bidens.
Trump was specifically asking for an investigation into Shokin's firing and the relationship to the Bidens' business dealings. Now it appears his suspicions about Joe Biden's role in it were well founded.
Hunter Biden is embroiled in a legal mess that seems to get worse by the day. If Morris was indeed smoking a mind-altering substance, perhaps it's understandable, considering how difficult his job is about to become.
