Jonathan Turley Says Hunter Biden Hit ‘New Low’ with Snub of Daughter: ‘Disgraceful’

Legal Scholar Jonathan Turley has called out the Biden family over Hunter’s “disgraceful” treatment of his four-year-old daughter.

Hunter fathered a child with Lunden Roberts and then tried to deny he was the father.

However, after a court battle, a DNA test proved Hunter is the father.

The Bidens have reportedly never met Hunter’s little girl, Navy Joan Roberts.

The family is now back in court fighting to block the child from legally taking the Biden name.

Turley said: “In an astonishing filing this week, Hunter Biden answered that question for his four-year-old daughter Navy Joan and effectively declared ‘you are no Biden.’

“Hunter Biden’s disgraceful treatment of his daughter has long been on display in Arkansas where he long denied being her father, fought paternity, and was threatened with contempt of court over his failure to supply needed documents.

“After DNA testing was forced by a court, Hunter was found to be the father but he continued to resist efforts to force him to pay child support and supply financial records.

“Recently, Lunden Roberts sought to have a surname change for her daughter to Biden. Even after his long and abusive treatment of his daughter in court, Hunter Biden’s opposition is breathtaking.

“He opposes his daughter using his name and says that, if she does, she will never have a ‘peaceful existence.’

“Of course, Biden did not feel that way with his other four children.

“They are all true Bidens and living peaceful existences.

“It is only Navy Joan who he does not want to bear the family name.

“Hunter’s concern for Navy Joan’s peaceful existence is a bit odd since he has reportedly never even seen his daughter after fighting for years to deny his paternal status and child support.

“Hunter is asking Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer to deny Navy Joan the ability to use her father’s surname and claiming that it is in her best interest.

“The filing is so self-serving and transparently dishonest that it does what was once thought impossible: reach a new low for Hunter.

“All of his reported selfies having sex and doing drugs with prostitutes were shocking.

“His attacks on his former sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, widow of the deceased brother (with whom Hunter later had a romantic relationship), were appalling.

“However, the craven effort to deny this child his name reaches a level of cad that stands unrivaled.

“The position of Hunter in court has been disgraceful, but the media has largely ignored the matter.

“It has also ignored the utter lack of support from President Joe Biden and the First Lady, who tellingly omitted a stocking for Navy Joan as one of their grandchildren. (The dog and cat did receive stockings).

“There is no record that Joe or Jill Biden have ever sought to meet, let alone embrace, their grandchild.

“There is no real doubt about the best interests of his child in his filing.

“For their part, the Bidens have made it clear what is in their best interest. It is not this child.

“The court should make fast work of this petition and change Navy Joan’s surname to Biden.

“That will not make the family more loving or supportive or accepting,” he said.

“She will have to eventually deal emotionally with this latest effort to conceal her true identity.”

From Yahoo:

She argued the name is “now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute and politically powerful” and it would open up opportunities for Navy, “just like it has for other members of the Biden family”.

KNWA reports that the filing includes 13 bullet points supporting the name change request including that Mr. Biden was a “wildly successful businessman”; her biological uncle, the late Beau Biden, “was a man of high moral character, loved and well-regarded by all, and the former Attorney General of the State of Delaware”; and her grandfather is the current President of the United States.

The request also states that “the defendant, the President, First Lady, and other members of the Biden family remain estranged from the child”.

“To the extent, this is misconduct or neglect, it can be rectified by changing her last name to Biden so that she may undeniably be known to the world as the child of the defendant and member of the prestigious Biden family,” the court filing states.

Mr. Biden has argued against the value of his last name, The New York Post reports, saying that his family name is now a lightning rod for criticism and would deny the child a “peaceful existence”.

His lawyer filed a motion asking Judge Meyer to deny the request, arguing that Navy should decide about using the name herself once “the disparagement of the Biden name is not at its height.”
