Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, had claimed earlier this year that he did not father a child with an Arkansas woman while he was living with the widow of his deceased brother. Biden even agreed to take a DNA test to prove that he was not the father.
The results from the DNA test were released on Wednesday, and they reportedly show that Biden is the father of the child.
“DNA testing has established, ‘with scientific certainty,’ that Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas baby, according to a motion filed Wednesday in Independence County on behalf of the child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts,” The Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported. “Hunter Biden, who initially denied having sexual relations with Roberts, eventually agreed to take a DNA test, according to documents filed by Roberts’ attorney, Clint Lancaster.”
The Arkansas Democrat Gazette added that, according to the filing, Hunter Biden “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.”
“Roberts wants a court to establish that the 49-year-old father of three is her baby’s biological dad,” Page Six reported in June. “She is also seeking child support and for him to provide health insurance for the now-10-month-old infant. All out-of-pocket expenses would be split between the two parents, the filing said.”
Roberts’ attorney, Clint Lancaster, told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, “She really does not want this to be a media spectacle. She does not want this to affect Joe Biden’s campaign. She just wants this baby to get financial support from the baby’s father.”
“We have been in contact with Hunter Biden’s attorney. We have attempted to work with Hunter and his attorney to settle this issue but that has not been successful,” Lancaster added. “We are attempting to serve Mr. Biden.”
Hunter Biden has been under intense national scrutiny over the past several months as his prior business dealings have been the subject of intense political attacks due to the fact that his father was vice president at the time and was involved in matters in certain countries where Hunter Biden was conducting business.
The most notable instance was Hunter Biden’s hiring by Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company that has been accused of corruption, and his father’s involvement in Ukraine.
In 2016, Vice President Biden threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that if he did not fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Biden, that he would not give Ukraine $1 billion in aid that it was expecting to receive.
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden told an audience last year as he recalled the incident from 2016. “Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
That matter has spiraled into Democrats trying to impeach President Donald Trump, claiming that he engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukraine, demanding that if they wanted to receive security assistance then they would have to investigate the Bidens.
Through days of hearings of the House Intelligence Committee, multiple witnesses have stated that there was no quid pro quo, including Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, Senior NSC official Tim Morrison, Ambassador Kurt Volker, and Ambassador Gordon Sondland.
