Watchdog questions Hunter Biden's Secret Service suspension in 2016

 January 17, 2024

Questions have surfaced about the first family's secret service details, following information obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, according to Just The News

Emails that were obtained by the watchdog organization Judicial Watch have brought to light the temporary suspension of the security provided by the Secret Service to the first son, Hunter Biden, during his trip to Kosovo in 2016, when President Joe Biden was serving as vice president.

The first family's usage of federal resouces have come into question since President Biden has again found a place in the Oval Office.

Questions came to the surface, particularly focused on Hunter Biden after the first son's laptop was reported on by journalists' uncovering a number of potential crimes along with a large volume of evidence of unethical activity.

The Legal Analysis

"Joe was communicating with the president of Ukraine at the time," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said on the Tuesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

"Hunter was briefed on it or received details about the fact he was going to be briefed on it and the details of the call. Why on earth was Hunter Biden getting that type of information?

"And again, it further undermines the ... claim that Joe and Hunter weren't communicating about Ukraine."

The attorney went on, saying "Secondly, the more interesting issue is why wasn't Hunter given Secret Service protection while they were over in Kosovo?" he continued.

"That was a big trip for the ... Biden family because there was an event where Beau Biden, who had just died, was being given some type of monument in Kosovo. So the whole family was there. So why wasn't a Hunter getting Secret Service protection?"

The Fallout

Following the acquisition of 426 pages of documents by Judicial Watch last week, it was discovered that Vice President Biden had authorized the termination of Secret Service protection for Natalie Biden, the daughter of Hunter Biden and Beau Biden, in August of 2016, when the latter was traveling to Kosovo.

During the period that Biden was serving as vice president, Fitton explained that other emails revealed that members of Biden's family accompanied him on business trips.

"These are 210 emails from Joe Biden from his days as vice president to members of his family. It shows that they were closely working with him on political and government matters," he said.

The documents that the watchdog was able to acquire demonstrate that President Biden and members of his family reportedly used private emails to discuss meetings with the government.

Currently, the White House has not provided a response to the request for a remark.
