According to a new report from ABC news it appears that U.S. tax payers are now spending over $30,000 per month to protect President Biden’s son Hunter from unspecified and potentially nonexistent threats in a mansion in Malibu California.
As ABC news reports:
Hunter Biden is apparently spending his father’s presidency living in luxury in Malibu — and so is his taxpayer-funded security detail.
The Secret Service detail protecting the president’s controversial son has been paying more than $30,000 a month to rent out a swanky Malibu, California, mansion for nearly a year, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.
The agency responsible for protecting the president and his family — among other ranking government officials — selected the property in order to be located as close as possible to Biden’s own rented mansion where he is paying about $20,000 a month according to property listings, sources told ABC News.
Retired senior Secret Service agent Don Mihalek, now an ABC News contributor, said the arrangement is “the cost of doing business for the Secret Service,” adding that under the federal law, the agency has a mandated protective responsibility for the president, the first family, and anybody else the president designates for protection.
Questions over Hunter Biden’s lifestyle are growing just as a federal probe into his taxes has begun to intensify.
