The China Syndrome
Turns out today was not a very good day for the Bidens.
First came the announcement during the House impeachment hearings that the Republicans intended to subpoena Hunter Biden and documents from his firm Rosemont Seneca related to Burisma and its work in Ukraine.
But then came something that was going to rock Hunter’s world perhaps just as much, if not more.
According the the Arkansas Gazette, a DNA test has concluded “with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden is the father of the baby of an Arkansas woman, Lunden Alexis Roberts. The Gazette was quoting a motion filed on behalf of Roberts.
Lunden Roberts, 28, a former college basketball player who went to grad school in D.C., filed a paternity and child support lawsuit against Joe Biden's recently married son, 49-year-old Hunter Biden, in Arkansas, saying he fathered her 10-month-old child: https://t.co/gSEo236aXn pic.twitter.com/bhxDMVCkwm

According to the motion, Biden would not be challenging the results.
This despite originally claiming that he had not slept with Roberts. He did eventually end up taking the test.
According to the Daily Mail, Roberts is asking for $11,000 for legal expenses and she is also seeking child support from Hunter Biden. Additionally, she mentions Secret Service protection for the baby since he/she is the grandchild of Presidential candidate Joe Biden. The baby was allegedly born in August 2018.
Interestingly, according to Heavy, Roberts worked for the FBI in some capacity.
Roberts was living in Washington D.C. two years ago studying crime scene investigation in graduate school and working with the FBI, according to a family member’s Facebook post. It is not clear what school she was attending to get her master’s degree. Public records show she was living in D.C. and Virginia from 2015 to 2018.
Given all the interesting things going on at the FBI at the time, it would be interesting to know in what capacity she worked.
Hunter Biden has had a rocky recent past, not even counting the controversy over his business operations in Ukraine and China.
As Heavy notes, Biden was discharged from the US Naval Reserve in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine.
He also was revealed to be one of the customers of Ashley Madison in 2015.
He and his wife Kathleen separated in 2015 and were formally divorced in 2017. Kathleen Biden accused Hunter of “spending extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills,” The Associated Press reported.
In March 2017, Biden confirmed that he was dating Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother Beau, who died of cancer in 2015, Page Six reported.
The pair split in April and Hunter Biden married 32-year-old Melissa Cohen, a South African native, just one month after meeting her.
Hard not to have this reaction to it:
