Jonathan Turley: Treatment of Hunter Biden's illegitimate daughter a 'monstrosity'

 May 1, 2023

Eyebrows were raised last month after the House Oversight Committee obtained financial documents showing that Hunter Biden and other Biden family members received large amounts of cash that originated in China.

However, one commentator recently argued that there is another piece of evidence that proves just how morally bankrupt the Bidens truly are.

Hunter Biden dodged child support despite his father condemning deadbeat dads

Jonathan Turley is a professor at George Washington University Law School, and in an op-ed published last week by Fox News, he pointed to the little girl that Hunter Biden fathered out of wedlock.

"Not only has President Biden refused to refer to her as a grandchild or even include a Christmas stocking with the other children, her father Hunter is fighting to prevent her from using the Biden name," Turley wrote.

"Indeed, the only reason that Hunter is coming to the same state that his daughter lives in is to seek to reduce his child support," the professor continued.

Turley pointed out that Hunter Biden long refused to support or acknowledge his daughter, Navy Joan, despite his father having "long campaign[ed] against deadbeat dads."

Legal fight to keep daughter from using Biden name

Turley noted that the hypocrisy is not confined to the Bidens as the same journalists "who profess to support women and denounce deadbeat dads have either ignored this story or belittled her mother Lunden Roberts."

However, he stressed that Hunter Biden's legal efforts to bar his daughter from using his last name "has moved this scandal from the realm of hypocrisy to monstrosity."

"It is hard to imagine the pain that this child will experience upon learning of how the Bidens erased any reference to her and fought even her ability to claim to be a member of their family," Turley complained.

He recalled how Navy Jones did not get a White House Christmas stocking despite every other Biden family member receiving one, including the pets.

Laptop could be authenticated in court

"If one were to combine all of Hunter's influence peddling, drug abuse, orgies and prostitution controversies, they would not hold a candle to the utter depravity shown toward this little girl," Turley declared.

Yet the constitutional law expert observed that Hunter Biden's attempt at dodging responsibility for his child may well backfire in a massive way.

Turley observed that the presiding judge is considering whether Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop can be used to paint a picture of his finances. Should that happen, the authenticity of the laptop and its incriminating contents could be established in a court of law.

"Hunter could now be forced to accept this laptop as his own. That could prove far more costly than the child support that he is seeking to avoid in Arkansas," Turley wrote.
