Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Kevin Morris, testified to congressional investigators that the first impeachment of then-President Trump in February 2020 prompted an “emergency” for Hunter Biden to file his tax returns.

Morris cited “political risk” amid the election cycle, and the potential of Hunter Biden being called to testify during the impeachment.

Morris also mentioned that he loaned Hunter Biden at least $5 million and began paying his tax liability.

“Emergency is off for today. Still need to file Monday — we are under considerable risk personally and politically to get the [tax] returns in,” an email read.

“You know, I believe that, you know, remember that the Trump impeachment process was going on at this time,” Morris said. “And they were waiving around the possibility of calling Hunter…right until the very end. I believe that it wrapped up. I believe that was the…thing prompting us— you know, this is about preparing his tax returns.”

“It’s a part of— that’s part of recovery, making amends,” Morris said. “It’s critical.”

“Personally, he hadn’t filed his taxes. Okay? That’s his personal problem,” Morris said of Hunter. “And then, politically…look, there was an impeachment proceeding going on. His name was and face was everywhere in the world.”
