(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- According to an ABC News report on Monday, US taxpayers are paying over $30,000 a month so the US Secret Service can rent a lavish estate next door to Hunter Biden’s swanky Malibu home.
A former Secret Service agent told ABC that this is the “cost of doing business” for the agency charged with protecting members of the president’s family.
Retired agent Don Mihalek told ABC that wherever a protectee lives, the Secret Service is required to rent a property nearby at market value. And since Hunter lives in the upscale celebrity enclave of Malibu in a home overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Secret Service has no choice but to rent a place nearby.
“This isn’t new,” Mihalek told ABC News. Every presidential administration receives the same protection. Mihalek said the agency also has to rent properties near both of President Biden’s two Delaware homes.
What makes this instance particularly galling is the fact that Hunter Biden is living in a Malibu home to begin with. This is the man who just weeks ago took out a loan to pay the IRS $1 million in back taxes. But he can afford to rent an estate in Malibu?
And because this ne’er do well insists on living like a celebrity, the American people are forced to pick up the tab for the Secret Service to rent a property that costs more in a month than most people pay for a car.
According to ABC News, Hunter’s expensive 4 bedroom/3 bath rental includes a “spacious park-like yard” with a pool, a spa, and a built-in barbecue bar. According to the listing, the home also features “enchanting” 180-degree panoramic views of the Pacific ocean.
Meanwhile, his Secret Service detail is living next door in a 6 bedroom/6 bath “Spanish-style estate” with its own ocean views. Agents assigned to the crack-smoking reprobate have their own pool and spa, a built-in barbecue, a gym, and a “tasting room.” It even features a “castle-like tower to the master retreat with wet bar.”
ABC News tried to get a comment from the White House on the Secret Service’s “castle-like” estate. However, the White House referred ABC to the Secret Service. The Secret Service in turn said it does not discuss “the means, methods, or resources used to conduct our protective operations.”
