Hunter Biden accused of ‘playing games’ in child support case

Hunter Biden is dragging his feet and “playing games with discovery” in a child support case — a “hallmark Biden litigation tactic,” the mother of his out-of-wedlock daughter claims in new court papers.

President Biden’s 53-year-old son has been trying to lower his $20,000 a month child support payments to former stripper Lunden Roberts — with whom he shares 4-year-old daughter Navy Joan Roberts — a move Roberts has vowed to fight.

“Mr. Biden does not want to disclose his income and assets, says that he is somewhat financially destitute, while he lives on a mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, has Secret Service protection, and enjoys his time abroad (which he has also lied about in discovery),” Roberts’ lawyer Clinton Lancaster wrote in court papers Friday.

Lawyers on both sides have filed a slew of court arguing over whether a deposition by Biden’s lawyers of ex-Trump While House aide Garrett Ziegler should go forward Monday.

Roberts, 32, wants to call Ziegler — the 27-year-old founder of nonprofit Marco Polo, which published a 644-page analysis of the contents of Hunter’s infamous laptop — as an expert witness at the July trial in the Arkansas child support case.

But Lancaster claims since Biden is still refusing to turn over all the discovery in the case, Ziegler won’t have all the information he needs for his grilling by three Biden lawyers.

Roberts doesn’t want to play games and says it “only hurts the child in this case as Mr. Biden seeks to shirk his daughter’s needs and support,” Lancaster wrote.

Biden’s lawyers, meanwhile, have previously said Ziegler shouldn’t be allowed to testify as an expert witness, attacking his credibility — saying he lacks the credentials and actual expertise — and charging that he’s carrying out a “war on” Biden.

In court papers Thursday, Biden’s lawyers called Roberts’ “eleventh-hour” bid to delay the Ziegler deposition “a ploy” and claimed their client has turned over all the relevant discovery in the case.

Biden, formerly a high-paid lobbyist, has also opposed Roberts’ efforts to have Navy’s last name changed to Biden so she can benefit from the prestige that comes with the name. The former flames had a month-long affair after Biden met her at a strip-club where she performed. He denied being Navy’s father until a DNA text proved otherwise.

Biden’s lawyers revealed at a court hearing in Batesville court earlier this month their client had already paid Roberts $750,000 since acknowledging the child as his own. Judge Holly Meyer chastised Biden at the hearing for withholding his financial information in the case.

Roberts has asked the judge to throw Biden in jail for his alleged evasion in the case.

The first son — who has four other kids with current and former spouses — has reportedly never met Navy. He has a son with wife Melissa Cohen and has three daughters with his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle.

He’s also been the subject of a federal probe into whether he allegedly failed to pay taxes on millions in income — primarily from foreign sources. Last month, Biden’s legal team met with the feds potentially signaling the probe could be concluding.

Lawyers on both sides didn’t immediately return requests for comment on Friday.
