The current court battle between Hunter Biden and the mother of his child, Lunden Roberts, seems to be getting messier by the day, according to a report in The Daily Mail.
Following reports that Judge Don McSpadden had recently given both parties a ten day deadline to turn over five years’ worth of their respective financial histories, Roberts is demanding that Biden confirm his employment by Burisma, along with the exact monthly compensation he received while serving on the board of the Ukrainian oil company.
The court documents obtained in The Daily Mail contain many redactions, such as the exact monthly figure Roberts claims Burisma paid Biden, though it is believed the sum is upwards of $50,000.
In total, the court filings demand that Biden comply with nearly 50 separate inquiries, “including six related to his income taxes for the years from 2013 to 2018.” What’s more is Roberts makes the interesting claim that Biden or a related entity had benefitted through the investment of an unnamed Chinese individual.
The report also revealed that Biden’s attorney has informed the court that the defendant objects to complying with Roberts’ request to cover her $11,000 legal fees.
Despite the high-profile nature of the case, the specifics of Biden’s financials are unlikely to be revealed to the public, as the judge intends to seal all financial records and preside over a timely, no-nonsense trial: “I do not want to have this drug out nor do I want to have to drag out the monies these individuals may have received in any form or fashion.”
Speaking to the sensitive nature of Biden’s financial records, Judge McSpadden directed the court to treat the obtained information with the utmost professionalism: “The likelihood that [Biden’s] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court.”
