Hunter Biden has skirted Lady Justice for much of his adult life, but that may be about to change. Multiple news agencies are reporting that the Justice Department could be nearing a “critical juncture” in their investigations. The feds are reportedly probing Biden’s financial dealings.
“They’re looking at bringing tax charges, as well as false statements related to a gun that Hunter Biden bought during a time that he has now said he was struggling with drug addiction, which would have made him essentially, you know, that he could not have been able to qualify to buy that firearm. So those are what the charges that are possible at this point,” CNN’s Evan Perez reports.
The federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s business activities is nearing a critical juncture as investigators weigh possible charges and prosecutors confront Justice Department guidelines to generally avoid bringing politically sensitive cases close to an election, according to people briefed on the matter.While no final decision has been made on whether to bring charges against President Joe Biden’s son, sources say the probe has intensified in recent months along with discussions among Delaware-based prosecutors, investigators running the probe and officials at Justice Department headquarters. David Weiss, the US Attorney in Delaware, is leading the probe, which dates back to as early as 2018.
Discussions recently have centered around possibly bringing charges that could include alleged tax violations and making a false statement in connection with Biden’s purchase of a firearm at a time he would have been prohibited from doing so because of his acknowledged struggles with drug addiction.
In recent days, the president’s son has faced withering scrutiny over videos, photographs and text messages from his laptop that show him engaged in various sorts of illegal activities involving prostitutes and copious amounts of drugs.
Any federal charges would not be connected to the behavior documented on the younger Biden’s laptop.
