According to a WaPo report, First Son Hunter Biden spent two weeks at the White House in the time surrounding his ill-fated plea deal —and most of the staff didn’t even know!
Hunter Biden spent his time at the Executive Mansion with his wife and son.
The report goes on to state most White House aides, including senior staffers, are not only “not involved” in conversations about the president’s son but “strenuously avoid” discussing Hunter Biden’s legal woes with the commander-in-chief because of the belief that their “contributions and ideas would not be welcome.”
“Hands off my family,” was the president’s message to aides concerning advice about Hunter Biden, according to a June NBC News report.
From The New York Post:
However, aides cleared the president’s schedule on July 26, so he could closely monitor his son’s appearance in a Delaware courtroom, where it was expected that his plea deal with Weiss would be finalized, according to the Washington Post.
Staffers reportedly had concerns about “exposing” the president to reporters as the courtroom proceedings played out, and only scheduled “internal meetings” that day and a 45-minute interview with podcast host Jay Shetty about mental health.
The president’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, gave the commander-in-chief updates as the hours-long hearing unfolded and Hunter Biden’s deal fell apart, culminating in a not-guilty plea by the first son.
Attorney General Merrick Garland subsequently elevated Weiss to special counsel, which “blindsided” President Biden, according to the report.
