Hunter Biden's lawyer abruptly quit on Monday after the former Vice President's son and Ukraine energy expert failed to show up for a child support hearing regarding his out-of-wedlock child with a D.C. stripper from Arkansas.
According to the Daily Mail, lawyer Dustin McDaniel - the former Attorney General for Arkansas, filed a motion to withdraw after he says Biden's personal lawyer 'advised' him that he was being discharged.
"(C)ounsel will take all steps reasonably practical to protect defendant's interests and make every effort to ensure an efficient and judicious transition for new counsel," wrote McDaniel.
Lunden Roberts, 28, is suing Biden for $11,000 in legal fees, plus child support payments after a DNA test revealed he was the father. Biden, meanwhile, says he's broke an has requested that the judge seal his financial records due to "significant debts" despite having been paid vast sums of money while sitting on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
Hunter was ordered by Judge Don McSpadden to provide at least three years of tax returns before he could reach a decision on monetary support for the child, whose name and gender have not been revealed. Biden has requested that his financial records be sealed to avoid public 'embarrassment' over claims of 'significant debts,' according to the Mail.
In addition to preventing the disclosure of Biden's alleged debts, it is thought information on his business ventures, investments, expenses, taxes and personal property valuations would also be included in the documents. -Daily Mail
Of course, Hunter's financial records could also reveal the extent of payments received while sitting on the board of Burisma, which paid his consulting firm $83,333 per month.
