This article previously stated that Hunter Biden was paying his father rent for the house in which he lived and was marked that he already owned. Due to the incorrect reporting from the original source, the situation was unclear. However, due to further information provided by the Washington Post we can now see that the situation is not as it seemed previously. This article has been corrected to reflect the fact that Hunter was paying $49,910 every three months for office rent, not for his house.
Joe Biden is treading water, trying to stay afloat during this growing document scandal. The administration has taken a huge hit after Americans learned Biden was improperly keeping classified documents at his private home in Delaware. Some of these documents were in his garage, next to his Corvette.
Now, things are getting even worse. As it turns out, his infamous son Hunter Biden had lived at this home for a year–between March 2017 and February 2018. Hunter, a man connected with a mountain of scandals himself, would have had easy access to Joe’s library and garage. It has also been noted that Hunter was paying quite a large amount of money for office space rent. And the amount is raising serious questions. Breitbart has more on this situation, though they have gotten some of the fact wrong.
Hunter Biden recorded monthly rent payments of $49,910 while living at President Joe Biden’s residence, according to a document unearthed by New York Post’s Miranda Devine.
On a document titled “background screening request,” it appears Hunter paid $49,910 in monthly rent for one year while living at Joe Biden’s Delaware residence, where the president kept classified documents alongside his Corvette in the garage.
Breitbart has incorrectly stated that Hunter Biden was paying $49,910 in monthly rent, however he was paying that amount only every 3 months, which reduces the amount by a lot. In addition, he was paying rent not for the home in which he stayed, but instead for office space in D.C.
We can see here the correct context from the Washington Post:
But the rental application was misconstrued — an example of how speculation about material from the laptop often lacks context or careful scrutiny. The reality is that Hunter Biden was paying $49,910 every three months for office space in D.C.
Some who pushed the embroidered narrative quietly distanced themselves. Others adjusted their claims. But investigations were still promised.
