The mother of one of Hunter Biden’s children answered questions from federal investigators probing Biden’s financial dealings, according to her attorney.
Clint Lancaster, representing Lunden Roberts, told The Epoch Times in an email that Roberts “testified pursuant to a subpoena.”
Hunter Biden, one of President Joe Biden’s sons, had a child with Roberts in 2018.
Several former romantic partners of Hunter Biden were reported to have testified to federal investigators in the probe, which he has described as exploring potential tax crimes and which includes looking into records of transactions with a bank in China, according to a grand jury subpoena obtained by The Epoch Times.
Lancaster told CNBC recently that he gave “a significant amount of Hunter’s financial records” to investigators and that both he and Roberts were interviewed by a U.S. prosecutor, an FBI agent, and an agent with the Internal Revenue Service.
“I expect him to be indicted,” Lancaster said. “Just based on what I saw in his financial records, I would be surprised if he’s not indicted.”
The testimony took place in Arkansas—where Roberts lives—more than a year ago, he said.
Lancaster declined to share more details, saying that Roberts hadn’t authorized him to make further comments or engage in additional interviews.
Another former girlfriend, Zoe Kestan, reportedly testified to the grand jury in Delaware. Kestan hasn’t responded to a request for comment. An attorney for Hunter Biden hasn’t returned requests for comment.
Biden, 52, engaged in numerous financial deals while his father was serving as U.S. vice president, including doing business with firms in China and Russia, according to a congressional report released in 2020.
The report states that there were concerns about potential criminal activity related to the transactions. Lawmakers also said the millions of dollars in transactions raised extortion concerns.
Hunter Biden and his father have said that the younger Biden didn’t do anything wrong.
The White House has repeatedly declined to comment on developments regarding Hunter Biden, noting that he isn’t part of the federal government.
Republicans in Congress have vowed to investigate Hunter Biden if they gain control of either or both chambers of Congress in the upcoming midterm elections. One aspect of such an investigation would be probing how social media firms blocked access to stories about emails from a laptop purportedly belonging to Biden just before the 2020 election.
“We know for a fact that Big Tech, the mainstream media, and allies of the Democrat Party worked together in the last days of the 2020 election to censor fact-based journalism and shut down social media platforms to ensure that the public did not have access to the truth about the scandals involving Hunter Biden and the Biden family,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said in a March 18 statement.
“This is the most consequential political scandal since Watergate, and it deserves an investigation no less robust and no less bipartisan.”
