Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris is financially and politically covering for Hunter Biden amid an ongoing grand jury investigation into his sketchy overseas business transactions and personal finances.
According to reporting from the New York Post, the Tony Award-winning co-producer of “The Book of Mormon” paid more than $2 million of President Joe Biden’s son’s large tax bill, which is more than twice the amount that previous reports suggested was due.
The FBI first launched a federal money-laundering probe into Hunter and his business associates in 2019, shortly after the IRS went after him for more than $100,000 in unpaid taxes dating back to when his father was vice president in 2015. The Department of Justice later confirmed in October of 2020 that the tax crimes investigation was ongoing. In December of 2020, the Biden-Harris transition team announced that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware was officially looking into Hunter’s tax affairs.
Even before Morris’s generous payment, Hunter took out a loan and put $1 million toward his looming tax debt. The combined payments could sway the jury’s opinion of Hunter and hinder prosecutors’ ability to fully punish the Biden son for tax evasion if he is convicted since he has paid at least some of his dues.
The Post also suggested that Morris, who is known for providing legal representation for the creators of “South Park,” has been paying Hunter’s rent and living expenses in California as well as advising his art sales.
In addition to involving himself in Hunter’s financial woes and sustaining the 52-year-old’s lavish lifestyle, Morris has pledged himself to shielding the star of the Biden family business from further political criticism.
According to CBS News, Morris recently devoted time and resources to investigating how Hunter’s bombshell laptop, which exposed the Biden family’s potentially criminal overseas business dealings, made it into the public eye. He is also planning a documentary that is designed to showcase Hunter’s life “since he has been the focus of conservative television commentators and investigated by congressional Republicans.”
While it is unclear why Morris, who previously represented A-list actors such as Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, and Liam Hemsworth, has taken a vested interest in the president’s son, Hunter’s legal team has confirmed that Morris is Hunter’s “attorney and trusted adviser.”
