(TheRedWire.com) – Allegations of improprieties by President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, have led some to question their business practices over the last several years. In 2020, the Trump administration established the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) during the height of the COVID pandemic. Its purpose was to provide forgivable loans as a lifeline to small businesses during lockdowns to help ease the economic impact of the pandemic. A new report indicates a law firm that hired Hunter Biden appears to have received a sizable stash of PPP money.
On Friday, December 2, the New York Post reported a law firm that once employed the president’s son received $10.14 million in PPP loans that the government forgave in 2021. It was the largest amount obtained by any of the 300 top firms the transparency nonprofit Open the Books investigated. The independent investigation found that Boies Schiller Flexner law firm partners and employees donated $1 million to Democratic candidates during the 2020 and 2022 election cycles, including nearly $214,000 to the Biden presidential campaign.

That’s not all. The Post noted David Boies, who leads the law firm, was a longtime Joe Biden donor. In 2020 and 2021, the business billed $480 million to clients, and equity partners received $4.5 million each.
In 2010, the firm hired Hunter Biden. He earned $216,000 annually in what the Post called a “no-show job” that didn’t require regular office hours or meetings participation.
