An attorney for Hunter Biden repeatedly refused to answer whether the First Son’s foreign business dealings could be linked to President Biden during an interview on CNN.
Abbe Lowell, part of the legal team defending Hunter Biden in a years-long inquiry by the US Department of Justice, instead insisted people shouldn’t focus on whether the president benefitted from his son’s work.
“Can you say with certainty that based on what you know, there’s no possibility that any of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings will, in any way, connect back to his father, the president?” asked CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins.
“You’ve had dozens of members of Congress, and their staff, you’ve had dozen members of right-wing media, picking and trying to find the connection, between Hunter, and his business, and other family members. And they have come up with nothing, because there’s nothing to come up with,” Lowell answered.
Collins pressed again.
“But can you answer the question?” she said. “From what you know, if you’re confident that this won’t, in any way, link back to the President?
“They came up with the decision that the only two charges to file were two misdemeanors and a gun diverted charge. Not any of the other things that the MAGA right wing have been yelling, from money laundering, to foreign corruption, to foreign agent, none of that. It’s not as if that wasn’t looked into. And now, the conclusion was reached,” Lowell replied.
“Do I know that that will change in the future? It shouldn’t change. This is not a new Special Counsel. This is an investigation that’s gone on, for five years, leading to only those particular charges. So, how should it be different, tomorrow? It shouldn’t be.”
Lowell also addressed the decision to appoint the U.S. attorney for the case, David Weiss, as a special prosecutor — and said it was immaterial to him.
“David Weiss was in charge of the investigation last year, the year before that, and the year before that. He is in charge of the investigation, today and tomorrow. He has a new title. His powers, in our view, are the same. The evidence hasn’t changed. The law hasn’t changed,” Lowell said.
Lowell did not respond to requests for comment from The Post.
