Phillip Perry, the husband of Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, is a litigation partner at the same law firm representing President’s son, Hunter Biden.

Husband of Liz Cheney involved with law firm defending Hunter Biden

Perry joined the firm Latham & Watkins in 2007 and handles white collar cases, commercial and Supreme Court litigation, NY Post reported on August 13.

Another partner at the firm, Chris Clark has been defending Hunter Biden since December 2020. However, Cheney’s husband’s partnership at the firm was not formerly known.

Perry is also listed as a partner on the firm’s official website. Latham & Watkins is an influential firm, with attorneys donating over half a million dollars to support Biden’s 2020 campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Clark reportedly paid over $3,800. He is referred to as a “grand jury investigation regarding tax issues,” in his company profile.

Latham’s connection to the Democratic party has been questioned in the past.

Meanwhile, the Wyoming congresswoman runs for re-election on an anti-Trump platform. Cheney was primarily elected to the state’s only House seat in 2016.

However, her political fame collapsed after she became a fierce Trump critic. She is expected to lose her seat in the next Congress. However, the Congresswoman was undeterred.

“If I have to choose between maintaining a seat in the House of Representatives or protecting the constitutional republic and ensuring the American people know the truth about Donald Trump, I’m going to choose the Constitution and the truth every single day,” Cheney told CNN last month.

Federal investigation of Hunter Biden

President Biden had appointed another Latham partner on his first day in office to head the Justice Department’s criminal division. During that time, the Justice Department’s investigation of the first son was in progress.

The president received a written rebuke from senators Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) for his actions.

The federal investigation into Hunter’s business actions has escalated in recent months. However, no final decision has been made on whether to propose charges against Biden’s son.

The charges could include alleged tax violations and false statements related to Biden’s purchase of a firearm during the time he was prohibited due to his struggles with substance abuse.
