Hunter Biden’s law license has been suspended in the state of Connecticut.
Biden used his law license to promote his international pursuits, including securing a $1 million retainer in 2017 from the chairman of CEFC China Energy Company,
Hunter didn’t pay the mandatory $75 Client Security Fund fee that is necessary to practice law in the state. This isn’t the first time that the troubled member of the Biden political family has had his license suspended. It’s actually the third time. On both occasions, he previously failed to pay the necessary fee for licensed attorneys in the state.
The current suspension of Hunter Biden’s Connecticut law license is tied to the address on record, which is located at the House of Sweden in Washington, D.C. This office space was reportedly used by Hunter to help broker a deal with CEFC China Energy Co. in 2017, which resulted in a $1 million retainer being paid to him by the company’s chairman, Ye Jianming. Additionally, in February of that same year, Hunter received a significant diamond from Ye, which has been valued at approximately $80,000 according to Breitbart.
Biden terminated his lease with the House of Sweden in 2018, following the failed CEFC energy deal the previous year. As has been reported, the Biden family had arranged a deal with CEFC, which would have involved President Joe Biden (referred to as “Big Guy”) receiving a 10% equity stake in a joint venture.
Additionally, Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s former business partner, was involved in the deal. After the lease was terminated, the House of Sweden returned a rent deposit of $49,910 to Hunter, as initially reported by Breitbart News.
Hunter is still able to practice law in Washington, DC, although there has been some confusion regarding his membership in the D.C. Bar.
The story explains;
However, when Breitbart News requested comment from the D.C. Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel on whether Hunter would be disciplined by the District for his Connecticut license being administratively suspended, the Office of Disciplinary Counsel claimed Hunter was “not a member of the D.C. Bar.”
The bar’s statement was consisent with the Associated Press’s reporting from 2014 in which was claimed the “Current District of Columbia bar records do not show Biden as member.” However, Hunter’s D.C. Bar license says he was admitted in 2007.
The bar’s statement mirrors reporting by the Associated Press from 2014 in which it claimed the “Current District of Columbia bar records do not show Biden as member.” However, Hunter’s D.C. Bar license states he was admitted in 2007. Both the Bar and the AP were unaware that the President’s son has been admitted to practice in D.C. for 16 years.
Breitbart News followed up by sending a screenshot of the search query of the D.C. Bar’s website that listed Hunter as a member. The D.C. Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel replied they had searched their records in error and that Hunter was indeed a member of the D.C. Bar.
Members of the public can locate Hunter’s license by searching the D.C. Bar’s records by simply searching “Biden.”
“I confirmed,” Disciplinary Counsel Phil Fox of the D.C. Bar replied. “He is admitted in D.C.; we just didn’t know his [Hunter Biden] first name was Robert when we looked him up.”
It remains uncertain whether Hunter Biden is currently practicing law, especially given the various scandals that have emerged related to his drug use and use of his family’s connections for his own benefit.
According to The Washington Post, the embattled younger Biden is reportedly considering taking a more forceful legal approach to defend himself against anticipated subpoenas from Republican lawmakers, as well as investigations being launched by the new Congress.
