Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Kevin Morris, testified that the first impeachment of then-President Trump in February 2020 prompted an “emergency” for Hunter to file his tax returns.

Morris emphasized the importance of taxes in Hunter’s recovery from addiction.

He denied any political connection to Biden’s candidacy and testified to loaning Hunter at least $5 million.

“You know, I believe that, you know, remember that the Trump impeachment process was going on at this time,” Morris said.

“And they were waiving around the possibility of calling Hunter…right until the very end. I believe that it wrapped up. I believe that was the…thing prompting us— you know, this is about preparing his tax returns.”

“It’s a part of— that’s part of recovery, making amends,” he said. “It’s critical.”

“Personally, he hadn’t filed his taxes. Okay? That’s his personal problem,” Morris said regarding Hunter. “And then, politically…look, there was an impeachment proceeding going on. His name was and face was everywhere in the world.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer suggested that this move was to protect Joe Biden from political liability.

Comer said it was a way to “insulate then-presidential candidate Joe Biden from political liability.”

Hunter has been under federal investigation since 2018 and faces both federal tax and gun charges.

Republicans are investigating any involvement Biden had in his son’s business dealings, including allegations of coercion and unpaid taxes.

“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in,’ I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

“Well, son of a b—-, he got fired,” Biden later said. “And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
