Hunter Biden’s lawyers reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter Thursday demanding Donald Trump alter his rhetoric on social media to protect the president’s son.
Abbe Lowell, one of Hunter Biden’s lawyers, argued Trump’s posts have incited violence in the past, citing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband and the armed suspect arrested outside former President Barack Obama’s house in June, ABC News reported. Trump’s posts could “further hurt people” if he doesn’t stop, Lowell reportedly said.
“This is not a false alarm,” Lowell wrote, the outlet reported. “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.”
Lowell also defended his client from Trump’s allegations that the bag of cocaine found at the White House belonged to the president’s son. The Secret Service concluded its investigation Thursday without finding a single suspect. (RELATED: Secret Service Unable To Find White House Cocaine Suspect)
“The public is demanding to know the White House ‘Cocaine Story.’ Just like I QUICKLY PROVIDED SECURITY TAPES FROM MAR-a-LAGO on the BOXES HOAX, the White House has Security Cameras (far more than Mar-a-Lago!) all over the place, especially the location in question. THEY 100% KNOW WHO IT IS. If they don’t release information, it means they destroyed the tapes & the Cocaine was for use by Hunter, & probably Crooked Joe, in order to give this total disaster of a President a little life and energy!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
“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 wrote, according to ABC.
The Biden family, including Hunter, left the White House for Camp David on evening of Friday, July 2. The cocaine was discovered two days later.
Lowell instructed Trump’s team to explain to the former president “how his incitement can further hurt people and cause himself even more legal trouble,” the outlet reported.
