Hunter Biden’s Lawyer Sends Cease-And Desist Letter Over Trump Rhetoric | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A lawyer for Hunter Biden sent a cease-and-desist letter demanding former President Donald Trump stop making comments that could potentially put the First Family in danger.

    Abbe Lowell, who represents Biden, wrote to Trump's lawyers on Thursday, warning against further "public statements about my client which are both defamatory and likely to incite Mr. Trump's followers to take actions against Mr. Biden and which could lead to his or his family's injury."

    "This is not a false alarm," Lowell said, before listing examples of violence or threats against high-profile politicians and their family members, including the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) husband Paul at their home in San Francisco last year by a man who allegedly had a hit list that mentioned Biden and others. The letter also mentions prosecutors said a man was recently arrested near former President Barack Obama's home with guns in his van after Trump posted what he claimed was the address to social media.

    "We are just one such social media message away from another incident, and you should make clear to Mr. Trump - if you have not done so already - that Mr. Trump's words have caused harm in the past and threaten to do so again if he does not stop."

    Biden, the adult son of President Joe Biden, was spotted in Malibu around the time the letter was sent, according to The Daily Mail. The letter seeks to restrain Trump's verbal attacks at a time when he is running for another term in the White House and is facing charges in multiple investigations.

    But the younger Biden has also drawn intense scrutiny over a federal investigation that has amounted to a plea deal for tax and gun violations that could keep him out of prison, an arrangement that still needs to be approved by a judge. In addition, the First Son has a history of drug abuse, which prompted some speculation that a small bag of cocaine found in the White House belonged to him. However, the Secret Service concluded its investigation without identifying a suspect.

    Lowell, who noted that Hunter Biden is four years sober, shared instances in which he claimed Trump has leveraged "dangerous rhetoric" against his client, particularly on social media, alleging illegal business dealings, suggesting the mishandling of classified documents, insinuating drug use by the president and his son.


    "You know, if Mr. Trump does not, that Mr. Biden has neither committed nor been accused of the charges that your client is claiming ... and that the Biden family was not at the White House (let alone in the vestibule) in the period when the cocaine was found," Lowell wrote.

    Lowell concluded his letter by telling Trump's lawyers they do not "need to respond," adding, "I hope you will speak with Mr. Trump privately and explain to him how his incitement can further hurt people and cause himself even more legal trouble."
