Secret Service is spending $30,000 – in U.S. taxpayer money – per month to rent a luxury mansion in Malibu to protect Democrat President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
According to a report by ABC News, Secret Service has been forced to rent a neighboring property near Hunter’s California mansion.
Hunter is currently renting his Malibu mansion for around $20,000 a month.
ABC is reporting that Secret Service is having to pay $30k a month to rent a “Spanish-style estate” nearby, but notes that it has “gorgeous ocean views.”
Retired senior Secret Service agent Don Mihalek said:
“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value.
“This isn’t new,” he notes.
“The Service has had to do this in past administrations, and unfortunately, the housing market right now has driven the prices up substantially.
The Secret Service told ABC:
“Due to the need to maintain operational security, the U.S. Secret Service does not comment on the means, methods, or resources used to conduct our protective operations.”
The Spanish-style estate that the Secret Service has rented sits on a 0.7-acre lot above the Malibu coast and also features “gorgeous ocean views,” according to its listing.
With six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, a tasting room, a built-in barbecue, a pool, a spa, and a spiral staircase that leads up to a “castle-like tower to the master retreat with wet bar,” the luxury mansion boasts “resort-style living at its finest” and is “a perfect retreat for discerning clientele,” its listing says.
The Secret Service detail protecting Hunter Biden has paid more than $30,000 monthly for almost a year to rent out a Malibu, California, mansion, ABC News reported Monday.

The news comes as the corporate media continues to flee the sinking ship that is the Democratic Party and is clearly hedging its bets on a red wave in 2022.
CBS News just hired a former Trump aide in anticipation of a GOP House because they want more access to Republican politicians for their shows.
The New York Times and The Washington Post have started digging into the Hunter Biden story and without Trump to drive ratings a big old scandal will do.
The Biden family has been doing business in the swamp for 40 years so you know there is a lot there if the media wants to find it.
