The attorney for Lunden Alexis Roberts – the mother of one of Hunter Biden‘s five children – revealed he turned over to federal investigators a ‘significant amount’ of Hunter’s financial records and said he would be ‘surprised’ if he was not indicted.
Clint Lancaster, who represents Roberts, said that he was complying with a subpoena in turning over ‘a significant amount of Hunter’s financial records,’ and that both he and Roberts were interviewed by investigators.
‘I expect him to be indicted,’ the attorney said of Biden. ‘Just based on what I saw in his financial records, I would be surprised if he’s not indicted.’
Still, Lancaster said that he and Roberts ‘don’t want Hunter to go to jail.’
If Biden were indicted, it’s likely he’d be convicted – federal prosecutors tout an over-95 percent conviction rate.
DailyMail.com exclusively reported that Roberts had testified before a federal grand jury in February for Biden’s alleged tax crimes.
Roberts, 30,and Biden, 52, conceived daughter Navy Joan together in 2018, and for years Biden has refused to acknowledge his youngest daughter’s existence.
‘It’s sad, because the baby looks like him, with blond hair,’ the lawyer said.
Lunden Roberts gave evidence at a federal courthouse in Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware for several hours on Tuesday morning
Roberts, 30, was subpoenaed to give evidence in the Department of Justice’s secretive three-year probe into Hunter’s murky financial affairs
Asked if Biden had ever seen the daughter or expressed an interest in doing so, Lancaster said, ‘No, he has not.’
It was initially reported that Biden met Roberts while she was studying crime scene investigation in graduate school and working as a stripper at a DC club which he frequented.
Texts uncovered last year by DailyMail.com revealed she was, in fact, on the payroll at Rosemont Seneca and had remained in communication with him throughout her pregnancy. Roberts worked in a junior level position at the investment firm owned by Biden.
The New York Times, upon acknowledging the legitimacy of Biden’s infamous laptop, also reported that federal investigators had asked Roberts about the corporate entity he used to pay her and whether that entity received payments from Burisma, where he sat on the board.
In December 2018, three months after Navy Joan was born, Biden emailed his assistant Katie Hodge to ask: ‘Who is pay roll paid to now and for past 9 months?’ according to emails uncovered from the abandoned laptop by DailyMail.com.
Hodge replied: ‘Past nine months has been you, me, Lunden, Hallie, Liz & Erin. But currently only you me & Erin.’
Texts found on the laptop include a message from Roberts on July 24, 2018 letting him know their child’s due date was September 8.
When he failed to reply she messaged again on August 8 to say: ‘Reached out a few times, it’s clear you don’t want to be reached. Need to talk to you. If you feel the need to reach out, my line is always open. Hope all is well.’
Again, Biden didn’t reply, just as he never reached out to meet Navy Joan after her birth, according to filings in the paternity suit.
Navy Joan’s existence remained a secret until Roberts filed for paternity and child support in May 2019, just days after Biden married his second wife, Melissa Cohen, after a whirlwind six-day romance.
Having initially denied Navy Joan was his, Biden was forced to take a DNA test in November of that year which proved once and for all that he is the father.
In his memoir, Beautiful Things, Hunter claimed he went on so many ‘rampages’ in the wake of his 2017 divorce from Kathleen Buhle that he couldn’t recall his conquests
The battle was far from over, however, as Roberts fought for months to force the 46th President’s younger son to disclose the details of his financial affairs.
Even after DNA proved he was the father, Hunter claimed he did not have enough money to pay child support. When an Arkansas judge ordered him to produce financial records he settled out of court.
In his memoir, Beautiful Things, Hunter claimed he went on so many ‘rampages’ in the wake of his 2017 divorce from Kathleen Buhle that he couldn’t recall his conquests.
‘It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine – I had no recollection of our encounter,’ the recovering drug addict wrote.
‘That’s how little connection I had with anyone.’
Investigators alleged in court documents that Biden’s assets were worth a staggering $156 million, owing largely to his much-scrutinized $50,000 per month role at the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, and his business interests in China.
Lunden and Hunter conceived Navy Joan – the fourth of his five children – around December 2017 while he was still in a relationship with his brother Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden. Lunden is seen with Navy Joans in 2021
Texts messages from Hunter’s abandoned laptop show Lunden informed him about the baby’s due date and pleaded for help in caring for the child multiple times in 2018, but her messages went ignored
In his memoir Hunter referred to Lunden as ‘the woman from Arkansas’ and claimed he had ‘no recollection of our encounter’
Biden pleaded poverty, however, insisting that he was cleaned out by his 2017 divorce from Buhle, with whom he has three kids.
He repeatedly failed to hand over his tax returns, reveal his home address in Los Angeles or even supply his phone number, citing the threat of media intrusion.
‘In an effort to demonstrate to this Court my good faith, I attest that I am unemployed and have had no monthly income since May 2019,’ Biden said in filings lodged with the Independence County Circuit Court.
‘I currently have significant debts (in part as a result of obligations arising from my divorce which was final in April 2017) that are being calculated by accountants.’
Biden is now under federal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Delaware for alleged tax fraud, and the Times reported Thursday that he told an associate he had to take out a loan to pay his over $1 million tax bill. That investigation has broadened to include looking into whether Biden broke money laundering and foreign lobbying laws.

Court filings show that Biden ultimately agreed to pay child support and his share of Navy Joan’s healthcare, though the exact terms are under seal.
He was accused several times of treating the proceedings with contempt by failing to show up for hearings but it was announced in March 2020 that the two sides had ‘reached a global, final settlement of all issues’ without the need for a trial.
Navy Joan gets none of the perks, nor the round-the-clock Secret Service protection, enjoyed by the rest of the Biden brood.
