Lawyers are supposed to work solely for their clients with no conflicts of interest. When a conflict of interest arises, a lawyer is expected to step away from the case. The trouble is that the Biden clan is one extended conflict of interest, and, in response to the Zhao message in which Hunter Biden threatens a Chinese businessman by describing himself as working with his father, his lawyer has an interesting response.
Chris Clark, the lead attorney for Hunter Biden, condemned the GOP’s “biased and politically-motivated leaks” in a statement on Friday afternoon, and sought to distance Hunter Biden’s alleged words from President Biden.
“Any verifiable words or actions of my client, in the midst of a horrible addiction, are solely his own and have no connection to anyone in his family,” Clark said.
That is a rather strange statement for a lawyer to make.
Translated into English, Clark is saying, “my client was a horrible lying crackhead and nothing he says should be trusted, especially if it makes someone who isn’t my client look guilty.”
What kind of lawyer does that, throws his client under the bus to protect someone who isn’t his client?
Whom is Clark really repping here? The answer is obvious. Clark is a former DOJ guy and a top lawyer. Hunter isn’t really his client. He’s there to protect Joe Biden.
