Fake news or fakes scam? Joe Biden’s son accused of counterfeit scheme

Hunter Biden has been accused by a private investigation firm of involvement in a $156m counterfeiting scheme – a claim his legal representation strongly denies.

The news is a bizarre twist in an ongoing child-custody dispute between Biden – the second son of Presidential candidate Joe Biden – and his child’s mother Lunden Alexis Roberts.

Papers filed with the circuit court of Independence County, Arkansas, claim that Hunter Biden is the subject of criminal investigations, “both adjudicated and ongoing” involving fraud and counterfeiting in Ukraine, and gave permission for Roberts’ legal representation to use the information.

Biden’s bank records “verify the counterfeiting scheme accumulating $156,073,944.24 with an average account value (monthly balance) in the amount of $6,785,823.66,” according to the court filing, which adds to claims by Roberts that he is involved in illegal activity.

In response, Biden’s lawyers say the private investigation firm – D&A Investigations – obtained the bank records illegally and are “scandalous allegations” filed by someone with no link to the child-custody dispute “to gain media attention without any material or pertinent material.”

D&A, which filed the papers as an “intervener” in the case, maintains the FBI and Department of Justice have an ongoing investigation involving PrivatBank, the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma on which Biden held a board member while his gather was vice president, and other parties.

The judge in the dispute – Don McSpadden – tossed out the original motion filed by D&A investigator Dominic Casey within a few hours of it being filed on the grounds that it had no direct relevance to the case and violated state procedural rules.

Shortly after, McSpadden recused himself from the case unexpectedly. For now, there’s no explanation for that turn of events.

Former stripper Roberts filed the paternity suite against Biden in May, and he was confirmed as the biological father of the child shortly afterwards after a DNA test. She is seeking full custody and child support.
