Hunter Biden's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, has issued a warning to Donald Trump, urging him to stop his relentless attacks on President Joe Biden's son. In a cease-and-desist letter, Lowell

highlighted that Trump's rhetoric has previously incited violence and cautioned that further legal action could be taken if the attacks continue.

Citing Trump's ongoing legal battles involving hush money and classified documents, Lowell emphasized that Trump should avoid creating additional liability for himself. The letter, obtained by Law360, cautioned that Trump already faces enough legal problems.

For years, Trump and other Republican leaders have targeted Hunter Biden over his business dealings. Recently, their focus has been on a plea deal where Hunter Biden agreed to plead guilty to tax evasion charges and participate in a pretrial program related to a firearm offense.

Trump's social media post, which characterized the lead prosecutor in the case as giving a "traffic ticket instead of a death sentence," was referenced in the Biden attorney's complaint. Trump also attempted to link President Biden and his son to cocaine found in the White House.

Trump and his aides have not yet responded to the cease-and-desist letter.

Lowell's complaint, directed at Trump's attorneys, drew attention to the past instances where Trump's rhetoric has incited violence, notably the January 6, 2021 insurrection and attack on the U.S. Capitol. The lawyer also mentioned the recent attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the arrest of an armed man near former President Barack Obama's residence.

Lowell urged Trump's attorneys to convey to him the harm caused by his words in the past and the potential for further harm if he does not cease his attacks. Additionally, Lowell suggested that Trump's attorneys should explain how his incitement could lead to more legal trouble for himself. Photo by acaben, Wikimedia commons.
