Report: Secret Service Pays $30k/Mo for Malibu Mansion to Protect Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden is renting a home in Malibu, California, for $20,000 per month — and the Secret Service is paying $30,000 per month to rent an adjacent home to provide him with 24/7 protection, according to a report Monday by ABC News.

The president’s son is living in the exclusive location and pursuing his art career, even as critics call for a special counsel to take over the investigation into his alleged influence-peddling, which is documented on his infamous laptop, now verified.

ABC News reports:

Hunter Biden is apparently spending his father’s presidency living in luxury in Malibu — and so is his taxpayer-funded security detail.

The Secret Service detail protecting the president’s controversial son has been paying more than $30,000 a month to rent out a swanky Malibu, California, mansion for nearly a year, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

In Malibu, Hunter Biden’s digs include a four-bedroom, three-bathroom “resort-style” home with an open floor plan, vaulted high ceilings, chef’s kitchen and French doors, according to a description on its property listing. The mansion also features a “spacious park-like yard” with a pool, a spa, a built-in barbecue bar, and alfresco dining, according to the listing.

The home in which Hunter Biden lives appears to be a secluded location, listed at one-tenth the value of neighboring homes, though other real estate sites put the value of the home above $3 million.

The Secret Service has been accused of covering up  Hunter Biden’s allegedly wild lifestyle, as well as an allegedly unlawful gun purchase. During that purchase, Biden filled out a form declaring that he was not a drug user, during a time when he has admitted elsewhere that he was abusing drugs, thus violating the kind of law his father has vowed to enforce as a means of gun control.

Whoopi Goldberg Apologizes for Says Holocaust Was Not about Race, Says ‘I Stand Corrected’

Entertainer Whoopi Goldberg has apologized for saying the Holocaust was not about race, comments she made on ABC’s “The View” that caused a backlash.

“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both,” she tweeted Monday. “As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people – who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected. 

“The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused. Written with my sincerest apologies, Whoopi Goldberg.”

The show’s hosts earlier in the day were discussing the banning by a Tennessee school board of the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel “Maus,” which is about the World War II Nazi concentration camps.

In banning the book, which sparked a national debate, the board cited nudity and profanity as the reasons for its decision.

“I’m surprised that’s what made you uncomfortable, the fact that there was some nudity,” Goldberg said about the reasoning. “I mean, it’s about the Holocaust, the killing of six million people, but that didn’t bother you? If you’re going to do this, then let’s be truthful about it. Because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race.”

Several of Goldberg’s cohosts pointed out that Jews and Nazis were considered to be different races.

“But it’s not about race. It’s not. It’s about man’s inhumanity to another man,” said Goldberg, who also argued the Nazis and Jews were two white groups of people. “The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem,” she said.

Greenblatt responded: “No the #Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people – who they deemed to be an inferior race. They dehumanized them and used this racist propaganda to justify slaughtering 6 million Jews. Holocaust distortion is dangerous.”

Greenblatt, a former special assistant to President Obama, thanked Goldberg for the apology.

Ghislaine Maxwell Gives Up Battle to Keep Names of 8 Anonymous John Does in Sex Trafficking Operation Sealed

While Ghislaine Maxwell’s highly publicized trial came to a close last month, where she was found guilty on 5 out of 6 charges, another legal battle is still happening to unseal the names of eight anonymous “John Doe’s” named in a civil lawsuit against Maxwell.  The right names are all allegedly high-profile individuals, ranging from politicians to business leaders and members of the royal family, one of whom is rumored to be Prince Andrew.  After fighting to keep the names sealed for months, Maxwell’s lawyers have given up on attempting to protect their identities.  The Daily Mail Reports

“Maxwell, who last month was found guilty of procuring girls for the late pedophile, had also previously opposed making the documents public, but now appears to have had a change of heart.

In a letter to Judge Preska Wednesday, Maxwell’s attorney Laura Menninger said her client will ‘leave it to the court’ to determine whether the names should be unsealed.

‘After careful review of the detailed objections submitted by [the eight Non-Party Does], counsel for Ghislaine Maxwell writes to inform the Court that she does not wish to further address those objections,’ the letter states.

‘Each of the listed Does has counsel who have ably asserted their own respective privacy rights. Ms. Maxwell, therefore, leaves it to this Court to conduct the appropriate review consistent with the Order and Protocol for Unsealing Decided Motions.”

Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs indicate that Bill Clinton was a frequent flyer on his private jet, with the Ex-President recording 26 separate trips on the plane.

In 2019, ABC News anchor Amy Robach admitted that the Epstein story was covered up by her network in part because of Epstein’s connection to the Clinton family.  “I’ve had this story for three years…ABC would not put it on the air. It was unbelievable…We had Clinton, We had everything…”  She said in a Project Veritas expose.

She says there is Clinton dirt involved (see our previous report on Bill Clinton below) that she had but was told to spike the story:

In August 2019, Investigative reporter Conchita Sarnoff blew the lid off of the case of Bill Clinton, who falsely stated he only flew on Epstein’s plane a few times.

On May 27, the New York Post reported about an alleged affair between Bill Clinton and Maxwell.

The ex-president— who denies cheating on wife Hillary Clinton with Maxwell — reportedly engaged in the romps during overseas trips on Epstein’s private plane, a customized Boeing 727 that’s since become known as the “Lolita Express.”

The nation’s 42nd head of state also repeatedly sneaked out to visit Maxwell at her Upper East Side townhouse, as detailed in an exclusive excerpt from the “A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein,” book by Alana Goodman and Daniel Halper, that was released in June 2020.
