After Hunter Biden abruptly resolved a $453,890 tax lien, Joe Biden’s campaign needs to explain the younger Biden's source of income, Washington Free Beacon investigative reporter Alana Goodman told Fox Business on Tuesday.
"How did he manage to pay off this $450,000 tax lien in six days? You know, most people just don't have a half a million dollars lying around," Goodman said.

Goodman questioned Hunter Biden’s ability to resolve the lien after he told an Arkansas judge in his paternity case last November that he was unemployed, in debt, and lacked income.
"We asked the Biden campaign, ‘How was he able to settle this?'" Goodman said. "‘What happened, how did he get this money, and does he have a job now?' And we got no response from the Biden campaign."
Goodman said there are also a lot of questions surrounding Hunter Biden’s relationship with foreign countries such as Ukraine and China, and that the former vice president "will have an issue for his son's finances because of the work that Hunter Biden did in China."
Biden's lucrative positions at foreign firms include the board of directors for Ukrainian energy giant Burisma between 2014 and 2019 and served on the board of BHR Partners, the $1.5 billion international private equity arm of Chinese investment fund Bohai Capital. Biden stepped down from both boards last year, according to his lawyer.
