A lawyer for Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, reportedly sent a cease and desist letter to former President Donald Trump over his comments about the younger Biden on social media.
The letter to Trump, from attorney Abbe Lowell, stressed that the former president’s posts were endangering Hunter Biden’s safety, per ABC News.
“This is not a false alarm,” Lowell said in the letter, per the outlet.
“We are just one such social media message away from another incident, and you should make clear to Mr. Trump — if you have not done so already — that Mr. Trump’s words have caused harm in the past and threaten to do so again if he does not stop,” he added.
In the letter, Lowell also pushed back on claims Trump has made on social media that the cocaine found at the White House last week may have belonged to Hunter Biden. The lawyer noted that the Biden family was at Camp David when the cocaine was discovered on July 2.
“You know, if Mr. Trump does not, that Mr. Biden has neither committed nor been accused of the charges that your client is claiming … and that the Biden family was not at the White House (let alone in the vestibule) in the period when the cocaine was found,” Lowell said in the letter, per ABC News.
Trump has made several posts on Truth Social about the president’s son. On July 5, Trump asked if anyone believed that the cocaine found at the White House “is for the use of anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden.” On July 10, Trump claimed the Secret Service knew “100%” who the cocaine belonged to and that it “was for use by Hunter, & probably Crooked Joe.”
The Secret Service announced Thursday it had concluded its investigation into the July 2 discovery of cocaine in the West Wing of the executive mansion. The investigation did not name any suspects due to a “lack of physical evidence.”
