A DNA test has confirmed “with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden — son of former Vice President Joe Biden — is the father of an Arkansas baby. The child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts, cited the DNA test in a motion filed Wednesday. Roberts is demanding child support from Hunter Biden, who notoriously took high-paying jobs in Ukraine and China while his father was the Obama administration’s point person in both countries.
Hunter Biden “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process,” states the filing, first reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. The father is yet to comment on the filing.
The former VP’s son had previously denied all allegations that he was the father of Roberts’ child. In May 2019, Roberts had filed a petition for paternity, child support, and a request for Biden to foot the bill for the child’s health care, the Daily Beast reported. She said she and Biden had conceived the child, who was born in August 2018.
This is far from the first scandal involving the VP’s youngest son. In 2017, Hunter Biden finalized his divorce from his wife of more than 20 years, Kathleen Biden, after she accused him of spending money on drugs and strip clubs. Later that year, he started dating Hallie Biden, widow to his late elder brother Beau Biden and mother to his niece and nephew. He broke up with Hallie Biden in April 2019.
This means the child now linked to Hunter by DNA was conceived during his relationship with his late brother’s widow.
Yet the story becomes even more bizarre. In May 2019, Hunter Biden, 49, married Melissa Cohen, 33, in a surprise wedding.
The indiscretions of Joe Biden’s youngest son are near the center of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, and they may suggest corruption on the part of the former vice president. While Democrats insist Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Burisma — a notoriously corrupt gas company that hired Hunter Biden to be on its board, despite his lack of experience — in order to hurt Joe Biden’s campaign, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) explained that it is just as likely Trump was probing to see whether Zelensky was really interested in fighting corruption.
Hunter Biden may be his father’s greatest liability, and the news just keeps getting worse for him.
