According to reporting by the New York Post, Hunter Biden, son of former US Vice President Joe Biden, is the subject of multiple criminal investigations related to “fraud, money laundering and a counterfeiting scheme.”
The allegations all stem from court documents filed this week in the Arkansas paternity case that the younger Biden has been embroiled in.
According to the Post, the claims were put forward by a Florida-based private investigation firm, D&A Investigations, in Biden’s ongoing case against his alleged baby mama Lunden Alexis Roberts, a former Washington, DC stripper who went by the name of “Dallas.”
However, as soon as the claims were filed, a judge struck the allegations down, because they were filed by an “intervener,” according to court papers.
Biden’s attorneys filed a motion to strike down the claims, arguing “the notice is filed by a non-party simply to make scandalous allegations in the pending suit to gain some media attention.”
One of those purported investigations cited in the papers relates to Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company with which Biden held a lucrative board post while his father, Joe, was vice president, a position which has drawn allegations of impropriety from Republicans, including President Trump.
According to the private-eye’s claims, Biden and a group of business associates “established bank and financial accounts with Morgan Stanley … for Burisma Holdings Limited … for the money laundering scheme.” D&A further alleged that the accounts showed an average account value of nearly $6.8 million between March 2014 and December 2015.
Biden and the others — including Devon Archer, John Galanis, and Bevan Cooney — allegedly “utilized a counterfeiting scheme to conceal the Morgan Stanley et al Average Account Value,” D&A claims in the papers filed at the Circuit Court of Independence County, Arkansas.
The filing additionally alleges that Biden had a hand in a plot including Galanis, Cooney, and Archer to rip off Sioux Native Americans to the tune of $60 million through the shady sale of tribal bonds. Galanis, Archer, and Cooney were found guilty for their roles in that scheme in June 2018, following a lengthy trial in Manhattan federal court. In November, Archer’s conviction was overturned by a Manhattan federal judge.
Biden “did drum up business for the scheme,” D&A claims in its filing, without giving any kind of further evidence or elaboration.
The New York Post says that Lawyers for Biden and Roberts did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the claims in the court filings.
Reached by phone, Dominic Casey, the D&A investigator who filed the papers, refused to say whether his group had been retained by Roberts, or had sent the information to the court of its own volition.
