President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is reportedly considering assisting a documentary about himself, attempting to reframe his current public perception. The news was released around the same time that congressional leaders are considering contempt charges against the president’s son over his defiance of multiple subpoenas.
Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, a close friend of the president’s son, is aiding an effort to change the focus of Hunter Biden’s current reputation.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Morris’ documentary would show the president’s son “painting, selling his art, raising his son and navigating everyday life as a sober adult with ongoing criminal investigations” and under criticism of former President Donald Trump and Republicans.

The First Son has been filmed for weeks, including recording his statement near the steps of the U.S. Capitol, defying multiple congressional subpoenas.
The same film crew also filmed Hunter Biden displaying his artwork in 2021.
Morris has an extensive reputation in Hollywood, having represented actors such as Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson and Will Ferrell.
The attorney is perhaps better known for sending the president’s son nearly $5 million, including $1.2 million in a 2020 loan.
Hunter Biden once said that he didn’t “know where I would be if not for Kevin.”
“And I don’t mean just because he has loaned me money to survive this onslaught, I mean because he has given me back my dignity. He has been a brother to me,” said the president’s son.
The House Oversight Committee will meet next week to consider potential contempt charges after Hunter Biden refused to testify before Congress last month, following multiple subpoenas.
House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said that his panel’s investigation “has produced significant evidence suggesting President Biden knew of, participated in, and benefitted from his family cashing in on the Biden name.”
Comer also said that Hunter Biden’s “willful refusal to comply with our subpoenas constitutes contempt of Congress and warrants referral to the appropriate United States Attorney’s Office for prosecution. We will not provide him with special treatment because of his last name.”
