Hunter Biden’s Lawyer Refuses House Republican’s Demand for Records of Business Deals

Hunter Biden’s attorney refuses to hand over records about the president’s son’s overseas business dealings while claiming the House Oversight Committee does not have the power to demand the documents.

Abbe Lowell, Hunter’s lawyer, cited a 2020 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that Democrats in the House’s demands for tax returns and financial records were too wide-reaching and threatened the separation of powers.

“Peddling your own inaccurate and baseless conclusions under the guise of a real investigation turns the Committee into ‘Wonderland’ and you into the Queen of Hearts shouting, ‘sentence first verdict afterward,'” said Lowell to a Republican from Kentucky and panel chairman James Comer, referencing “Alice in Wonderland.”

In the conclusion of his four-page letter to Comer, Lowell offered “to sit with you and your staff, including the ranking member and his staff, to see whether Mr. Biden has information that may inform some legitimate legislative purpose and be helpful to the Committee.”

Rep. Comer has demanded that Hunter Biden turn over any records that might be related to his father’s alleged “involvement” in the Biden families’ financial interests and accused the 53-year-old as well as his business associates of having “peddled influence to generate millions of dollars for the Biden family.”

“Evidence shows that you engaged in foreign business deals with individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party and received significant amounts of money from foreign companies without providing any known legitimate services,” wrote Comer.

“You and your associates’ financial conduct raises significant ethics and national security concerns. The committee requests documents and communications related to our investigation of President Biden’s involvement in your financial conduct,” continued Comer.

Representative Comer said the committee needed the information to determine whether the 80-year-old president “has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Wednesday, the committee had a meeting looking into Twitter’s acknowledged quashing of The Post’s October 2020 report that exposed the existence of the younger Biden’s infamous laptop.

The letter from Comer gave Hunter Biden a deadline of February 22 to hand over any relevant records that involve him and his father beginning from January 20, 2009, when Joe Biden was sworn in for the first of the two terms he served as vice president to January 20, 2021, when he was sworn in as president.

In the wake of President Biden’s scandal over the possession of classified documents, Rep. Comer additionally demanded that the younger Biden turn over “any document, record, or communication designated classified by any government body, including but not limited to any constituent agency of the U.S. Intelligence Community.”

Additional letters sent to James Biden’s former business partner, Eric Schwerin

Similar letters were also sent to James Biden, the president’s brother, and former Hunter Biden business partner, Eric Schwerin.

President Joe Biden has repeatedly denied involvement in Hunter’s business dealings, including any discussion of them. However, emails from the younger Biden’s laptop showed that he introduced his father to a top executive at Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company, in 2015 while Hunter Biden served on its board.

Additional emails showed how the younger Biden pursued a profitable deal with CEFC China Energy Co., a Chinese energy conglomerate, that included an agreement for 10% of the equity to be “held by H for the big guy.”

An additional partner, James Gilliar, former British special forces officer, also referred to Joe Biden as “the Big Guy” in a message in 2020 prompted by The Post’s exclusive about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Miranda Devine, Post columnist, reported earlier in this year.

According to The Washington Post, CEFC compensated entities controlled by James and Hunter Biden a total of $4.8 million during a 14-month period of time that began in August 2017. The publication independently authenticated almost 22,000 emails from the laptop.

Last week, Lowell sent letters to the IRS, the Delaware Attorney General’s Office, and the U.S. Justice Department seeking probes of several of Trump’s allies, as well as others connected with “the exposure, exploitation, and manipulation of [Hunter] Biden’s private and personal information” on the laptop.

Lowell followed up on those requests with letters directing the potential targets, including former White House adviser Steve Bannon and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to retain any records that could be needed for future litigation.
