‘Pressure campaign’: Hunter Biden wants to subpoena Trump and Barr in criminal trial – By Carl Gibson (Alternet) / Nov 15, 2023
President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is now seeking to compel both former President Donald Trump and former Attorney General Bill Barr to provide documents that may assist with his defense ahead of his pending criminal trial. He’s also requesting subpoenas for former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and former deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue.
In a 16-page filing submitted Wednesday in the US District of Delaware, Hunter Biden’s attorneys allege that he may be the victim of “a vindictive or selective prosecution that arose out of an incessant pressure campaign that began in the last administration, in violation of Mr. Biden’s constitutional rights.”
“Public reporting reveals certain instances that appear to suggest incessant, improper, and partisan pressure applied by then President Trump to Messrs. Rosen, Donoghue, and Barr in relation to an investigation of Mr. Biden,” the filing read. “Additionally, former Attorney General Barr’s latest book recalls an instance in mid-October 2020 in which President Trump called Mr. Barr and inquired about the investigation of Mr. Biden, which Mr. Barr says ended with ‘Dammit, Mr. President, I am not going to talk to you about Hunter Biden. Period!'”
