The Complaint in Biden v. Byrne alleges defamation against Byrne for making, publishing, and repeating false and defamatory statements about Plaintiff. Byrne’s false statements claimed that Plaintiff reached out to the Iranian government in 2021, offering to unfreeze $8 billion in Iranian funds in return for $800 million. Byrne further claimed that Plaintiff urged the Iranian government to “lubricate other negotiations.” These statements are completely false, and Byrne knew them to be false at the time he made them. Hunter Biden has filed a lawsuit for libel over these claims.
