    Hunter Biden’s lawyer asks to withdraw from the case because he could be called as a witness

    Hunter Biden’s top defense attorney asked a federal judge Tuesday to remove him from an ongoing high-profile tax and gun crimes case against President Joe Biden’s son because he could be called as a witness in future proceedings.

    Christopher J. Clark, Hunter Biden’s lawyer who has defended other big names like Elon Musk, filed the short motion Tuesday in Delaware District Court.

    Clark has represented the president’s son during his legal troubles.

    Biden was set to reach a plea deal in federal court last month, but the deal hit a snag after the judge questioned the possible immunity it would grant him.

    Negotiations for a plea deal are now at a “stalemate,” according to David Weiss, the prosecutor who has investigated Biden’s taxes for years.

    Attorney General Merrick Garland granted Weiss special counsel status on Friday.

    “It appears that the negotiation and wording of the plea agreement and diversion agreement will be challenged, and Mr. Clark is an insightful witness to those issues,” Hunter Biden’s legal team wrote in a court filing. “It is not advisable for Mr. Clark to continue as counsel in this case.”

    Clark’s presentation also says that Biden would not face any legal difficulties, given that he has another lawyer on his side.

    Abbe Lowell, another lawyer on Biden’s legal team, said recently that he doesn’t think Weiss’ elevated status translates to any additional findings against Hunter Biden, as the case currently appears to be heading toward a criminal trial.
