The high cost of protecting Hunter Biden

By Mark Moore, New York Post

Taxpayers are shelling out more than $30,000 a month so the Secret Service can rent an estate in the upscale celebrity enclave of Malibu to protect Hunter Biden, who is living nearby in a “resort-style” home with “enchanting” panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, according to a new report on Monday.

A former Secret Service agent told ABC News the setup is the “cost of doing business” for the agency, since Hunter — like other presidential family members — is entitled to round-the-clock security.

“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,” retired agent Don Mihalek told the network, adding that the agency also rents properties at Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, as part of its duty to protect President Biden on his frequent weekend trips home.

”This isn’t new,” Mihalek added. “The service has had to do this in past administrations, and unfortunately, the housing market right now has driven the prices up substantially.”

Hunter Biden, who has come under intense scrutiny for his business dealings in Ukraine and China and is under investigation by the feds for allegations of tax fraud, has been whiling away his time  over the past year in luxury digs that cost about $20,000 a month.

  • Joe Biden will go down in history as one of our most courageous and selfless presidents. He didn’t want to become president at that age. Having so many close family members die young, he would’ve been content spending peaceful times with his grandkids, etc. But he was heartbroken over what Donald had done to our country. He wanted it to end, and knew he was the only man on the planet who could prevent Donald from getting re-elected. That’s why Obama told him behind close doors, “You don’t have to do this, Joe.” But he cars about the American people more that he cares about himself. Everyone is aware — but not understanding — that he isn’t drinking from the Fountain of Youth everyday. What matters is he is responsible for getting the voters to fire Donald, whose darkness exposed just how creepy and amoral Republican politicians are. They certainly sunk to the occasion.
