Prosecutors subpoenaed Hunter Biden’s paternity documents and tax records – both personal and business.
“They wanted every record relating to Hunter Biden we had,” Lunden Roberts’ lawyer Clint Lancaster told CBS News.
The federal investigation of Hunter Biden centers on the “flow of money” from the Biden family’s overseas business deals, Catherine Herridge reported.
The request for records spanned from January 2017 to present.
There was another subpoena that was sent out to a major US bank seeking records of James Biden, Joe Biden’s slimy brother.
James Biden’s records went back to 2014 while Joe Biden was Vice President.
CBS News’ Catherine Herridge reported:
A December 2020 subpoena from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware, obtained by CBS News, requested all documents “regarding [Hunter] Biden’s income, assets, debts, obligations, and financial transactions… and all personal and business expenditures.” The request specified January 2017 to the present.
The subpoena also requested a wide range of tax documents pertaining to Hunter Biden.
“All federal, state, local and foreign tax documentation related to Biden,” the subpoena reads, “including but not limited to, IRS Forms 1099, income and payroll tax returns, state tax returns, and amended tax returns.”
Hunter Biden’s personal and business conduct have been the subject of scrutiny — and the target of Republican political attacks — since the earliest days of the 2020 presidential campaign.
The move by federal authorities to obtain these records offers a new, if narrow, glimpse into the long-running investigation into the president’s son — a probe that began as a tax inquiry several years ago.
Lancaster told CBS News that in the fall of 2021, the Assistant U.S. Attorney in Delaware, Lesley Wolf, traveled to his Arkansas law office, joined by at least two federal agents, one from the FBI and the other an IRS enforcement agent. Lancaster said he and his client spent about half a day answering questions about Hunter Biden and his business practices.
