The NY Post is reporting that the lawyers representing Hunter Biden in his tax and gun charge case have been accused of a fraud upon the court handling the matter. The House Ways and Means Committee filed an amicus brief to US District Judge Maryellen Noreika arguing that Biden had benefited from “political interference which calls into question the propriety of the investigation” into his alleged money laundering, felony tax evasion, and failure to register as a foreign agent. The filing included the testimony of a couple of IRS whistleblowers.
It appears that someone from Biden’s legal team contacted the clerk of the court claiming to with the lawyers representing the House committee and asking that the amicus brief be removed from the docket.
The House’s lawyers have refiled their brief, and the judge has given Biden’ lawyers until 9pm tonight to “show cause as to why sanctions should not be considered for misrepresentations to the Court.”
UPDATE—Matthew S. Salerno of Lantham & Watkins has responded with a letter to Judge Noreika claiming the incident was caused a “misunderstanding.”
