HUNTER Biden was seen on Thursday for the first time since his email scandal nearly derailed father Joe’s election campaign in November.
Hunter had been embroiled in controversy during the run up to the November 2020 election, after a hard drive from a laptop that reportedly belong to him was given to Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
The hard drive featured questionable information that many thought would put his father's chance of winning the presidency in jeopardy.
The drive allegedly contained evidence of $21,000 of payments to a "live cam" site, tens of thousands of dollars spent at a strip club, and photos in which Hunter appeared to be intoxicated.
It led to social media platform Twitter being accused of censoring a bombshell news story about Hunter Biden's leaked emails.
The social media giant blocked users from sharing a link to the reports – which allegedly show Hunter introduced a Ukrainian business associate to his dad when he as Vice President.
On Thursday morning Hunter's father, President-Elect Joe Biden, was formally certified after Congress counted the Electoral College vote early Thursday morning – after it was delayed by pro-Trump protesters storming the US Capitol building.
But following the bloody chaos in Washington that left five people dead and dozens of cops injured, Hunter appeared to enjoy time with his baby son and two daughters in California.
It was also the first time the incoming president's son had been seen in public, since a scandal involving the contents of a laptop nearly derailed Joe Biden's campaign.
Hunter, 50, was accompanied by his South African wife Melissa Cohen, 34, and Secret Service agents as they grabbed coffee in Los Angeles later on Thursday.
The father-of-five shares three daughters with his first wife Kathleen and a toddler daughter with his baby mama Lunden Roberts.
Hunter was also seen holding his nine-month old son Beau – named after Hunter's late older brother – dressed all in white during the family day out.
And Hunter's daughters Maisy and Finnegan were also present.
However his eldest daughter, Naomi, wasn't spotted during the outing.

Hunter was last seen on stage during his Dad's election victory speech on November 7 -just weeks after an email scandal jeopardized the presidential campaign.
Hunter appeared onstage with his baby son and the rest of the Biden clan, and the president-elect was seen on video kissing his baby grandson's head.
