Incredible reports are resurfacing that the husband of ex-congresswoman Liz Cheney works for the law firm representing Hunter Biden. Because of course, he is. What’s more, the firm, Latham and Watkins, is a “Democratic powerhouse” according to the New York Post. Because of course, it is.
Philip Perry is the spouse of thirty years to the daughter of former vice president and Halliburton CEO Dick Cheney, and the Post adds that he’s been at the firm since 2007. If anyone needs more reasons as to why Liz Cheney hates Donald Trump so much, add this potential bombshell to the list.
Hunter Biden has been represented by the firm since 2020, the Post noted.
The New York Post wrote in 2022 that one of the partners in Perry’s firm, Chris Clark, has himself been representing Hunter Biden since 2020 and is a prominent donor to the Democrat Party. The Post said:
Another Latham partner, Chris Clark, has been representing Hunter Biden since December 2020 — but Cheney’s husband’s involvement at the firm had not been previously known.
Latham is a Democratic powerhouse, with company attorneys and other employees donating more than half a million dollars to President Biden’s 2020 campaign, Federal Election Commission records show. Clark himself ponied up $3,800.
The Post added that Clark’s role in representing the First Son relates to tax issues.
Amazingly, this isn’t the only curious connection between the large law firm and the Biden White House. Immediately upon taking office, Joe Biden appointed another Latham and Watkins partner, Dennis McQuaid, to head up the Justice Department’s criminal division. We’ve all seen how the DOJ has enjoyed defining criminality over the past two years.
In a response to the New York Post’s story revealing the connection between the Cheney family and Democrat lawyers, a spokesman said that “Latham & Watkins has 3000 lawyers and thousands of clients. Mr. Perry has no role at all in any matter involving Hunter Biden.”
That may be, but it seems unlikely neither Perry nor Cheney would want to do anything to ruffle feathers at the husband’s cushy gig. Moreover, it seems like their politics would line up neatly for him to want to work there at all. Cheney’s own behaviors in defending the Establishment during Donald Trump’s presidency support that notion.
As for Perry, he has enjoyed a tidy legal career thanks to connections to the Cheney family. As a bio on the Latham and Watkins notes, he held significant power in both Bush administrations, first as General Counsel for White House operations and later as General Counsel of the Department of Homeland Security.
His bio states:
In 2005, Mr. Perry was nominated by the President and confirmed unanimously by the US Senate as General Counsel of the US Department of Homeland Security. In that role, Mr. Perry managed an office of 1,500 lawyers responsible for all components of the department. Prior to his appointment at Homeland, Mr. Perry served as General Counsel of the White House Office of Management and Budget, addressing budgetary, regulatory, and policy issues across the Executive Branch
