Report: Hunter Biden Requests Protective Order To Keep Finance Records Secret In Child Support Suit


Lunden Roberts – a former DC stripper who is suing Hunter Biden for child support – has just produced DNA evidence to prove that the younger Biden is, indeed, the father of her child.

And, she’s not on board with Hunter Biden’s latest move in the child support case.

Hunter has just requested a protective order to keep all of his financial records a secret in the lawsuit because he claims that revealing them would be an “embarrassment” and used by the media “maliciously.”

Get this, despite the lucrative (sketchy) position he held for years at Burisma – you know, the one with the $50K+ per month salary – Hunter claims he’s incurred “significant debts” and is “unemployed.”

Take a look at the breaking update to the Hunter Biden scandal that just hit Twitter:

Fox News has more details on Biden's request to keep his finances hidden in the lawsuit:

Hunter Biden filed a protective order this week in an effort to seal his financial records from being released publicly -- amid his fears that the information would be used “maliciously” by the media and cause him public “embarrassment,” according to a report.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son filed the motion in Arkansas on Wednesday as part of an ongoing child support suit, according to the Daily Mail. His attorneys claim the details would be used by the media, considering his high public profile, to cause him "undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression."

"The likelihood that [Biden's] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court," the filing reads.

"Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the parties involved in this matter, it is in the interest of justice and necessary for a Protective Order to be in place," Biden's attorney says.

An earlier court filing in the case alleged that DNA tests confirm with “scientific certainty” that Hunter is the biological father of a child whose mother he denied having sex with.

A paternity suit filed by Lunden Alexis Roberts was first filed on May 28 when she alleged that she and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship,” according to reports by The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.

The Daily Mail also had the following to say:

Hunter Biden has filed a request to seal all financial records in his ongoing child support suit to spare himself public 'embarrassment' amid claims of 'significant debts', DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

The 49-year-old filed the motion for a Protective Order of his financial records in the Arkansas Circuit Court of Independence on Wednesday, citing fears that such information would be used 'maliciously' by the media if disclosed publicly.

'The likelihood that [Biden's] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court,' the filing reads.

Any such disclosures, Biden's attorneys claim, would furthermore cause their client 'undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression.'

'Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the parties involved in this matter, it is in the interest of justice and necessary for a Protective Order to be in place,' Biden's attorney Dustin McDaniel states.

The filing comes just over a week after Biden was revealed to be the father of Lunden Robert's child, having engaged in relations with the 28-year-old after meeting her at the Mpire Gentlemen's Club in Washington D.C where she worked as a stripper. 

While Roberts - who is demanding Biden pay her $11K in legal fees in addition to child support - is said to agree that a Protective Order is appropriate, she has so far refused to fully commit to the current terms demanded by Biden, despite his 'best efforts' to secure her acquiescence.

In addition to the Protective Order, Biden is also requesting an upcoming December 2 hearing be delayed until a decision on the order is made, adding that he has been so far been unable to complete an affidavit of his financials.

In a signed sworn statement, Biden claims he has been unable to complete the mandatory requirement because he currently lacks the information to do so.

'In an effort to demonstrate to this court my good faith, I attest that I am unemployed and have had no monthly income since May 2019,' Biden's statement reads. 

The former Ukraine energy executive goes on to admit he has incurred 'significant debts', partially caused by his April 2017 divorce to Kathleen Biden, which are currently being calculated by his accountants and will be disclosed to the courts as soon as possible.

'For the aforementioned reasons, I cannot complete an Affidavit of Financial Means at the time,' he claims.

While Roberts and Biden continue to negotiate the specific terms of the order, should agreement be found, all financial information disclosed by both the defendant and plaintiff during the proceedings will remain entirely confidential.

In addition to preventing the disclosure of Biden's alleged debts, the embargo will also block the release of any information regarding Biden's business ventures, investments, expenses, taxes or personal property valuations.

Any physical copies of documents detailing finances of either party would be filed under seal and must later be returned or destroyed, and any digital documents would need to be securely stored on encrypted devices.

Failure to comply with such demands - filed in accordance with Rule 26(c) of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure - would leave any guilty party liable to charges of contempt of court, which could result in hefty fines or even jail time.

Last Wednesday, Biden was finally revealed to be the father of Roberts' child following the outcome of a DNA test - something the 28-year-old had been urging Biden to take since May, following his repeated denials.

Roberts is demanding for Hunter to pay her $11k legal fees and child support for their baby, who she argues could be eligible for Secret Service protection because they're the grandson of former Vice President Joe Biden.

She is also seeking for the court to seal case records to protect the child's identity out of fear of safety for the baby and Roberts' family, citing presidential candidate Biden's political status.
