During a court-ordered appearance on Monday, an Arkansas state judge accused first son Hunter Biden of attempting to conceal his income in a child support case.
According to a report by The Conservative Brief, the judge made his comments in a case involving a daughter he fathered with a former adult entertainer he met in the Washington, D.C. area.
“Judge Holly Meyer rebuked the 53-year-old’s legal team during the two-hour proceedings, saying they wrongly concealed details of filings that had already been submitted to the court as part of the ongoing legal saga,” the New York Post reported.
“The ability to redact is somewhat being abused,” Meyer told Biden’s lawyers before ordering them to refile related documents. The Post observed that the financial information was unclear in the required filing.
Biden requested a reduction in his monthly child support payments for his 4-year-old daughter with former prostitute Lunden Roberts.
The publication also reported that Biden was asked to provide financial documentation as part of the case after he reopened his paternity case in September 2020 in an effort to reduce his $20,000 monthly payment.
Biden claimed he had experienced a "substantial material change" in his income, despite never having met his daughter with ex-stripper Lunden Roberts.
Roberts' attorney, Clinton Lancaster, claimed that Hunter had provided "incomplete answers" to written inquiries about his investments, art sales, and other financial transactions.
In response, Judge Meyer ordered Hunter to submit additional written responses. According to the news source, Lancaster argued that Hunter had not disclosed who had purchased his artwork or the estimated values of the pieces.
Biden's attorneys responded to Lunden Roberts' claims of incomplete answers by stating that the first son did not know the identities of the purchasers of his artwork in order to prevent their influence on his father's administration.
This came on the heels of a judge in Arkansas suggesting on Monday that Hunter Biden's art dealer, Georges Bergès, could be subpoenaed to disclose the prices of his paintings sold to anonymous purchasers.
The judge made his suggestion during a child support hearing between the president's son and the mother of his child, Lunden Roberts, according to Breitbart News.
The presiding judge criticized Hunter Biden for "sealing and redacting" his financial information, including the income he earned from selling art as an amateur painter to anonymous buyers for up to $500,000, the financial records were at issue in a paternity case he reopened in 2022 in an effort to reduce his child support payments.
“The ability to redact is somewhat being abused,” the judge chided Hunter. “I’m seeing a lot of things filed, especially by Mr. Biden’s counsel, sealing things, redacting things, that are not confidential.”
