Confidant of Hunter Biden Set to Testify in Closed-Door Interview on Alleged Tax Payments and Art Purchases

LOS ANGELES, California – Kevin Morris, a close associate of Hunter Biden, is set to testify in a closed-door interview on Thursday as part of the Republican-led impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, according to sources familiar with the matter. Morris, an entertainment lawyer based in California, will face a lengthy day of questioning from lawmakers and attorneys on the House Oversight and Judiciary committees. The topics expected to be covered include the payments Morris made to Hunter Biden, purchases of Hunter Biden’s art, and his knowledge of Hunter Biden’s plans to defy congressional subpoenas.

One particular area of interest for Republicans is the claim made by two Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblowers that Morris paid off approximately $2 million of Hunter Biden’s outstanding taxes in 2020, during the presidential campaign. The House Ways and Means Committee discovered last year, through these whistleblowers, that federal investigators had considered whether Morris’s tax payment could be a violation of campaign finance laws, as it exceeded the legal donor limit at the time.

Kevin Morris is known as a prominent Democratic donor who significantly supported Joe Biden in the 2020 election, according to federal election data. However, it is important to note that the payments in question were made to Hunter Biden, who was not running for office. The House committee pointed out an email written by Morris to a Biden family accountant in February 2020, which seemed to suggest a tie between the payment and Joe Biden’s campaign, potentially constituting an unreported donation and a serious campaign finance violation.

So far, the Department of Justice has not brought any campaign finance violation charges against Morris or Hunter Biden, despite subsequently charging Hunter Biden with nine tax-related offenses. In the upcoming weeks, Republicans have scheduled closed-door interviews with several of the Biden family’s business associates, including Mervyn Yan, Rob Walker, and Eric Schwerin.

The investigation continues to develop, with Republicans still working to arrange interviews with two key witnesses, Hunter Biden and James Biden, the president’s brother.

It remains to be seen how Morris’s testimony, as well as the interviews with other Biden family associates, will contribute to the ongoing impeachment inquiry and any potential legal actions. The outcome of these investigations could have significant implications for the Biden administration and its political future.
