A new report reveals that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter faces new legal problems as his criminal defense lawyer abandoned him after “unease and dissent” inside his legal team.
The First Son is under US Justice Department investigation over tax issues, including revelations based on materials from his so-called “laptop from hell.”
Hunter Biden’s legal defense team has numbered at least four lawyers. Still, one of them – “high-powered” attorney Joshua Levy – has quit due to internal conflict, according to a New York Times report cited by Breitbart News.
The NYT makes it clear Levy had been hired to fend off congressional investigations probing “the complexities of the family’s business schemes.”
The report claims, however, that he was in a conflict with another Hunter Biden lawyer, Abbe Lowell, who has previously represented high-profile people involved in “political scandals such as Bill Clinton and Jared Kushner.”
Lowell was hired in December to defend the entire Biden family from nine congressional probes on wire fraud and money laundering matters.
The New York Times alleges that Levy disagreed with Lowell’s strategies, thinking they could backfire.
In February, the latter joined an effort to preserve records from Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” by sending “litigation hold” letters to 14 persons, including Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Hunter’s former business partner, whistleblower Tony Bobulinski.
Critics considered the move a PR attempt to shift the “troubling” public narrative for Joe Biden’s family.
Mike Davis, founder and head of the pro-Trump Article III Project, said Lowell’s letters were a “desperate, frivolous, and laughable” effort sure to damage the Bidens’ legal position.
The NYT report also reveals that Joshua Levy was hired to be on Hunter Biden’s legal defense team at the recommendation of President Joe Biden’s lawyer, Bob Bauer.
One of the paper’s sources disclosed that Levy had also clashed with Kevin Morris, a lawyer who is also a “close adviser to Hunter Biden.”
Morris and Hunter Biden jointly brought Lowell on the latter’s attorney team in December, leading to Levy’s quitting.
Besides causing Levy’s resignation, Lowell’s hiring also generated conflict with Chris Clark, another high-profile lawyer in charge of Hunter Biden’s criminal defense.
Clark works for the same Washington, DC, law firm as former US Rep. Liz Cheney’s husband, and his biography states that he represents the First Son in the “grand jury investigation regarding tax issues.”
“Chris Clark, the lead criminal defense lawyer representing Mr. Biden in the Justice Department investigation, has kept Mr. Lowell at a distance in dealing with that matter,” the NYT notes.
Levy’s departure and the infighting between Lowell and Clark may mean that Hunter Biden’s “very expensive legal team” might be breaking down at a time when the GOP-led House Oversight Committee is ramping up its investigation into the “Biden family business,” Breitbart concludes.
Hunter Biden’s high-powered criminal defense lawyer Joshua Levy is reportedly no longer working for the president’s son after “unease and dissent” plagued the legal defense team, which consisted of at least four lawyers. https://t.co/dS485jNRFM
