Hunter Biden’s defense lawyer in the gun trial – Abbe Lowell – has been accused of involvement in a ‘brazen coverup and far-reaching conspiracy to violate court orders, hide documents, and encourage a witness to lie under oath’, the Daily Mail reported citing documents and emails.
Lowell has been accused of working in Qatar in a scheme to conceal communications about an alleged computer hacking plot, court documents filed last Friday, per the report.
The documents came from a lawsuit filed by former GOP money man and a Donald Trump ally Elliott Broidy. He had sued the Qatar government in 2019 for an alleged hacking and smear campaign against him. The government denied the allegations.
