Bill Stevenson, the former spouse of first lady Jill Biden, accuses the Biden family of harassment in a recent interview.
In an interview with Newsmax, Bill Stevenson made a series of allegations against the Biden family. These included claims of intimidation during his divorce from Jill Biden and a belief that he has been unfairly targeted due to his political views, the Daily Mail reported.
Stevenson, who was married to Jill Biden from 1970 to 1975, made serious claims against President Joe Biden's brother, Frankie Biden.
Stevenson recalled a confrontation during his divorce proceedings where he was allegedly threatened with "serious problems" if he did not relinquish his home to Jill. He stated:
Frankie Biden of the Biden crime family comes up to me and he goes, 'Give her the house or you’re going to have serious problems.'
He asserts that shortly after this confrontation, he and his brother were indicted on a tax charge. When asked if he believed his ex's family was behind the tax charge, Stevenson confirmed his suspicions by saying:
I not only think it, but I know it.
Stevenson went on to draw comparisons between his situation and the ongoing legal challenges faced by former president Donald Trump.
He expressed concern over the treatment of the former president, whom he admires and supports, saying:
It’s hard to believe what they’re doing to President Trump... I can't let them do this to a president I love and respect... This is the only reason I’ve come forward.
He further voiced his concern for the former president, asserting that the Bidens are a threat. This, he claims, is the primary reason he has chosen to speak out.
Newsmax host Greg Kelly highlighted the disparity between the legal consequences faced by Stevenson and Hunter Biden, President Biden's son.
Hunter Biden is currently facing charges for failing to pay between $1.1 million and $1.5 million in federal taxes in 2017 and 2018.
Despite the larger amount, Hunter's charges are misdemeanors, while Stevenson's were felonies. Stevenson said:
I was on the wrong side of them and they have literally come after me for 35 years in a row.
Stevenson and Jill Biden got married in 1969 when Jill was 18 years old. Stevenson claims he introduced Jill to Joe Biden, then a council member campaigning for the U.S. Senate, in 1972.
He recalls a particular fundraiser event where they all were present. He reminisced:
I introduced Joe to Jill in 1972. Right before the election, in '72, Jill, Joe, Neilia and I were in his kitchen. How do you forget that?
In 1974, Stevenson said he began to suspect an affair between Jill and Joe Biden. By October of the same year, he was convinced.
He recounted discovering that their shared Corvette had been involved in a crash and learned that Joe Biden was driving the car at the time of the accident.
After confronting Jill about an affair with Joe, Stevenson asked her to leave. He recalled:
She didn't say anything - she just looked at me.
Their divorce was finalized in May 1975, contrary to the widely circulated narrative that Jill and Joe did not meet until March of that year.
