Most of us work hard for a living, but it seems what we really needed all along was a “sugar brother.” That seems to have worked out well for First Son Hunter Biden, who reportedly received over $4.9 million from Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris over a three-year period, according to an IRS whistleblower.
Hunter’s BFF allegedly paid off some of Hunter’s tax bills and even bought some of his “art.” This answers the burning question I posed in January of this year:
The sums lawyer Kevin Morris revealed before the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday are staggering:
The revelation signifies a substantial increase in the known amount Hunter, 53, got from his so-called “sugar brother” after the men reportedly met for the first time at a December 2019 campaign fundraiser.
IRS agent Joseph Ziegler shared the jaw-dropping figure and additional documentation Tuesday with the House Ways & Means Committee in a follow-up appearance as House Republicans near an expected vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry into President Biden for his alleged role in his family’s foreign dealings.
Prior reporting indicated Morris paid about $2 million in tax debts for Hunter and purchased some of his novice artworks.

What did the Chinese, Ukrainians, Russians, Kazakhs, Romanians, etc., etc. get for the millions they gave The Bidens? https://t.co/OUI4IZADdh
The Republican-controlled House committees continue to pump out damning information about President Biden, his son, and his claims that he has no knowledge of Hunter’s business activities:
IRS whistleblower Ziegler described a troubling pattern with Hunter Biden’s finances:
“Hunter appeared to follow a pattern of attempting to avoid paying taxes on relevant income. This first started with Hunter not reporting the [Ukrainian gas company] Burisma income in 2014 and allegedly falsely claiming that it was a loan to him,” Ziegler said in his opening statement.
“He, again, tried to claim the millions in [Chinese] income earned from Hudson West III was a loan to him, which was refuted by the evidence and was not allowed by his tax accountants.
“This continued into 2020, 2021 and 2022, in which Hunter received approximately $4.9 million in payments for personal expenses, again in the form of a loan and gift from Democratic Donor Kevin Patrick Morris.”
Ziegler and the rest of his investigative unit were removed the tax fraud case targeting Hunter, allegedly on Justice Department orders, in May after Ziegler joined his supervisor Gary Shapley in publicly alleging a coverup featuring preferential treatment for the first family.
But that’s not the only fancy financial dealings made by “Amtrak Joe.” The guy who tries to sell himself as the American everyman spins a complicated web:
House Oversight Committee’s GOP leaders allege that James “laundered” $40,000 in Chinese government-linked funds to pay Joe Biden in September 2017, and that he paid his brother $200,000 in 2018 after getting an identical amount the same day by promising to help a US hospital chain find a Middle Eastern investor using his political connections.
The White House said those two transfers were genuine loan repayments and that President Biden did nothing wrong, but Republicans say that the funds that James claimed to be repaying were transferred to him from a law firm rather than Joe Biden’s personal account, clouding the picture.
The red wave did not materialize in November 2022, and many were left despondent. I wrote at the time, however, that all was not lost: by holding the House, even by the slimmest of majorities, we might be able to get some accountability. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Oversight Committee James Comer (R-KY), Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO), and others have produced more damning information than I could have ever dreamed of.
They have exposed that President Joe Biden is corrupt and that he repeatedly lied about his connections to Hunter’s business activities. Now, if they can only hold the octogenarian, truth-challenged president to account.
