There have been rumors that Hunter Biden may soon face charges related to making false claims on his taxes. Republicans keep looking into whether or not President Joe Biden did anything unlawful to benefit his son or keep him safe.
According to the New York Times, David Weiss, who was appointed U.S. attorney for Delaware in 2017 by Trump, is close to deciding whether to prosecute Hunter for late filing of his 2016 and 2017 tax returns and possible false claims of at least $30,000 in business expenses.
The report goes into great detail about illegal behavior. The president’s son has been accused of unlawful conduct, and conservatives have attempted to draw connections between the president and the claims. While inquiries have shown communication between Joe Biden expressing that he hopes Hunter knows what he is doing. The president was said to have made the statement to his son after learning of his son’s board seat at Burisma. So far, despite extensive searching, Republican investigators have not uncovered any incriminating evidence.
For instance, Weiss is allegedly contemplating filing charges against Hunter for making false statements on a paper he submitted to the United States government in 2018 to purchase a weapon. In answer, he said he did not do drugs. Although potential witnesses might be utilized to fight the accusation, such charges are seldom taken up unless they are part of a bigger investigation.
The New York Times reported that Hunter’s attorneys presented data to the Justice Department showing that Delaware’s U.S. Attorney’s Office never filed a separate firearms prosecution for lying about drug usage.
Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, faces many allegations, including suspected drug addiction. On October 12, 2018, Hunter’s accountant Bill Morgan allegedly informed him that he needed to submit his personal and corporate tax forms for 2017, for which he owed over $800,000. On that very day, Hunter made his gun purchase.
Once again, Morgan tried to catch Hunter’s attention, but he was disregarded. Morgan also reminded Hunter that he still needed to file his 2016 tax return, trying to get his attention again. Morgan informed Hunter that the State Department would not renew his passport because of outstanding tax liens.
Weiss’s ability to charge Hunter with tax evasion was compromised by Hunter borrowing the necessary $2 million and paying the IRS the full amount owed.
Hunter’s connections in China and Ukraine are extensively discussed, including his time on the board of the Ukrainian energy corporation Burisma and his stake in a Chinese government-linked company. However, it was harder to prove such encounters with the president himself.
In 2015, Hunter’s Burisma contact, Vadym Pozharskyi, wrote to the younger Biden, thanking him for the opportunity to meet Joe Biden and spend some time together. In regards to the failed Chinese venture company, one participant suggested setting aside a 10% stake for the “big guy.”
A new report on Weiss’ investigation of Hunter came just hours after Republican Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), demanded that the Treasury Department release all suspicious activity reports regarding the president’s son.
As of right now, the future of Hunter’s story of abuse, loss, and failure is up to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. As the president mulls a possible reelection bid and faces critical scrutiny for his handling of classified documents, the ever-stronger magnifying glass on top of Hunter’s head has been long overdue.
