Hunter Biden Is Desperate To Keep His Laptop Out Of Arkansas Court, Afraid Of What Its Contents Could Show

It has been recently revealed that Hunter Biden's legal team fought to keep testimony about his laptop away from the litigation over his Arkansas child support case.

According to Just The News, his lawyers argued in an April 20th filing that the financial records in the laptop, as it was "abandoned sometime in 2019", are outdated while confusingly at the same time arguing that this fact was "not an acknowledgment of ownership [of the laptop] or abandonment."

In effect, it is an admission that the personal data of Hunter was on the laptop in question but that the laptop itself is not necessarily Hunter's. They contend that "Evidence of Defendant's income from three years ago and beyond would not tend to prove his income today. Thus, the Court should exclude any expert testimony related to the laptop as not relevant."

Financial records are important in the Hunter Biden child support case because Hunter previously agreed in a 2020 closed settlement to a $20,000 monthly sum to be sent to Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of his now four-year-old daughter. This agreement was struck shortly after Joe Biden announced his presidential campaign, as per the Washington Free Beacon

Hunter now asserts that he is unable to afford these payments and wants them reduced. For the reasons stated above on the timeliness of records on the laptop in question, his legal team asked the Court to disqualify Garett Ziegler, an expert witness for Roberts on the laptop. This motion to disqualify Ziegler was withdrawn without reason by the legal team. 
 

This withdrawal, however, happened after the judge asked one of Biden's lawyer's to plainly state whether the laptop was Hunter's or not. The lawyer said he was unsure. The judge then ordered Hunter to show up in court to answer such questions, which he did so last week.

As previously noted by the DC Enquirer, the status of the Hunter Biden laptop as Hunter's can be fairly established. Hunter previously sued the owner of the laptop repair shop for "unlawfully" accessing his laptop and "weaponizing" its content. Hunter himself has been somewhat coy about the laptop. He acknowledged publicly that the laptop might be his, stating in an interview with CBS, "there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked, it could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me." 

The Russian intelligence angle, which was infamously flaunted before the public in October 2020, was, since that interview, decisively ruled out and the authenticity of the laptop and its contents confirmed by even many in the corporate press.   

As Hunter continues to obfuscate about his laptop, the walls are seemingly closing in on the president's son as an indictment is likely in the coming months.
