Arkansas Judge Orders Hunter Biden to Appear before Court in Paternity Case

Arkansas Judge Orders Hunter Biden to Appear before Court in Paternity CaseAn Arkansas judge presiding over Hunter Biden’s paternity case has ordered the son of former Vice President Joe Biden to appear before the court on January 29 to explain the state of his finances, after missing a deadline to hand over five years of records.Biden "continues to act as though he has no respect for this court, its orders, the legal process in this state, or the needs of his child for support," wrote Clinton Lancaster, the lawyer for Lunden Alexis Roberts, the mother of Biden’s 16-month-old child. Judge Holly Meyer signed an "Order to Appear and Show Cause," which was filed in court on Tuesday.Lancaster explained that Biden had failed to reveal addresses, phone numbers, all sources of income, ownership stakes in companies, property deeds, and tax returns. The original "Motion for Contempt and for Order to Show Cause" was filed on December 23, with Lancaster arguing that Biden had already missed deadlines on December 12 and December 19.Biden’s lawyer Brent Langdon has argued in response that "to the extent possible [Biden] has complied with the court's orders" and asked for the motion to be dismissed.Lancaster also told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette that the case had nothing to do with impeachment. Roberts has been seeking $ 11,000 from Biden to defray cost of her paternity case, after DNA results proved he had fathered her child.“I don't believe we have any stake in the impeachment proceedings. We don't have any stake in it whatsoever. We need his income so we can determine child support,” he said.Earlier this month, Judge Don McSpadden recused himself without explanation after ordering Biden to hand over all income records over the past five years, in the interest of “Baby Doe.” McSpadden also stipulated that Biden’s financial information would remain under seal.

Cracks appear in Donald Trump's support from evangelicals over impeachment, poll shows

Cracks appear in Donald Trump's support from evangelicals over impeachment, poll showsMore than four in 10 evangelical Christians would approve of Donald Trump being impeached and removed from office following a Senate trial, according to a new poll. It came after Christianity Today, a prominent evangelical magazine, called last week for the president's removal and described his actions as "profoundly immoral." Mr Trump has hit back at the apparently growing fissure within America's evangelical movement, lambasting the magazine as "far left". He also announced plans to launch a new movement called "Evangelicals For Trump," gathering leading religious figures for an event in Miami on Jan 3. People identifying as evangelical make up to one in four of all US voters. Read more | Donald Trump's impeachment In the 2016 election 80 per cent of them backed Mr Trump, and their support is crucial to his re-election bid next year. The Politico/Morning Consult poll was taken on Dec 19 and 20. The Christianity Today article was published on Dec 19. According to the poll 43 per cent of evangelicals would approve of the Senate removing Mr Trump from office. Within that figure 34 per cent would "strongly approve" and nine per cent would "somewhat approve." Mr Trump still had majority support, with 53 per cent saying they would "disapprove" of the Senate removing him, including 49 per cent who would "strongly disapprove." However, it was the latest sign that his support among the evangelical community might be starting to crack. The president's standing with evangelicals is based partly on his continuing commitment to appoint conservative, anti-abortion judges. Support for impeaching President Donald Trump He has been vociferously supported in the wake of the Christianity Today article by major religious leaders including Jerry Fallwell Jr, and  Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham. However, some younger evangelicals have expressed doubts about support for Mr Trump, particularly on the issues of immigration and climate change. A Trump campaign spokesman said the Miami event would "bring together evangelicals from across the nation who support President Trump’s re-election." Meanwhile, Mr Trump attacked Democrats for delaying his impeachment. Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives decided not to transmit the charges to the Senate before Congress broke up for Christmas on Friday. At a rally Mr Trump called her "crazy Nancy," and added: "It's so unfair, they [the Democrats] are violating the Constitution." White House officials were said to be considering making an argument that Mr Trump has not actually been impeached until the charges do reach the Senate. He faces two articles of impeachment – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Mr Trump is accused of attempting to pressure Ukraine into opening a corruption investigation into the Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden, and his son Hunter. The president denies any wrongdoing.
