A judge ordered Hunter Biden to appear next week in an Arkansas court for a hearing on whether he should be held in contempt for failing to disclose financial information to a woman who says she bore his child, CNBC reports.
Michael Pillsbury, an informal White House adviser on China, told the Financial Times that he received information about the business activities of Hunter Biden during a visit to Beijing in the same week President Trump urged China to probe the son of Joe Biden.
Said Pillsbury: “I got a quite a bit of background on Hunter Biden from the Chinese.”
New Yorker: “Hunter speaks in the warm, circuitous style of his father. Through weeks of conversations, he became increasingly open about his setbacks, aware that many of the stories that he told me would otherwise emerge, likely in a distorted form, in Breitbart or on ‘Hannity.’
“He wanted to protect his father from a trickle of disclosures, and to share a personal narrative that he sees no reason to hide. ‘Look, everybody faces pain,’ he said. ‘Everybody has trauma. There’s addiction in every family. I was in that darkness. I was in that tunnel—it’s a never-ending tunnel. You don’t get rid of it. You figure out how to deal with it.’”
