According to a new report from ABC News, “Hunter Biden is apparently spending his father’s presidency living in luxury in Malibu,” and that is costing taxpayers more than $30,000 a month to provide protection for the president’s son.
The Secret Service is reportedly spending thousands renting a Malibu home as part of their taxpayer-funded security detail to protect the younger Biden.
As noted by ABC News, “The agency responsible for protecting the president and his family — among other ranking government officials — selected the property in order to be located as close as possible to Biden’s own rented mansion where he is paying about $20,000 a month according to property listings.”
Hunter Biden is renting a home of his own in the California beachfront community where he is reportedly paying $20,000 a month, according to the network.
Retired Secret Service supervisor Don Mihalek told NBC News that having to pay the exorbitant rent ” is the cost of doing business for the Secret Service.”
“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,” he explained. “This isn’t new. The Service has had to do this in past administrations, and unfortunately, the housing market right now has driven the prices up substantially.”
