Report: Feds have ‘sufficient evidence’ to charge Hunter Biden with felony crimes

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has been under federal investigation for many years for a variety of alleged crimes.

Now, according to a bombshell report, federal agents have gathered “sufficient evidence” to charge Hunter with certain tax-related crimes and for making a false statement with regard to a gun purchase, Breitbart reported.

The final decision on whether or not to federally charge the president’s son will be up to U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware, a holdover of the Trump administration who has overseen the Biden probe since 2017.

Unreported taxable income from business deals

The Washington Post, which cited unnamed sources said to be “familiar” with the matter, was the first to report that federal agents had “assembled a viable criminal case” against Hunter Biden several months ago but have been waiting for prosecutors to decide when or if to press forward with charges.

Biden himself had acknowledged in December 2020, after his father had been declared as president-elect, that he was the subject of an investigation into his “tax affairs,” though he insisted that he was innocent and would ultimately be exonerated — and that claim has been echoed repeatedly since then by President Biden and others in his administration.

The Post noted that the tax crimes portion of the federal investigation is most likely centered on Hunter Biden’s alleged failure to fully report his income received from a multitude of domestic and foreign business deals.

False statement during a gun purchase

As for the potential false statements charge in a gun purchase, Politico first reported in 2021 about a 2018 incident in which Hallie Biden, Hunter’s sister-in-law turned lover, had thrown away a handgun purchased by Hunter outside a grocery store near a high school — an incident that allegedly involved local and state police in Delaware, the Secret Service, the FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

The federal form Biden filled out to purchase that gun, obtained by the outlet, showed that he had falsely checked “No” on the question that asked, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”

Biden was admittedly a heavy user of crack cocaine at that time, and his apparent false statement on that form is a federal felony that, while rarely prosecuted, could net him up to 10 years in federal prison.

Biden’s attorney issues statement

“It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one,” Biden attorney Chris Clark told the Post in a written statement for its report. “Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors.”

“As is proper and legally required, we believe the prosecutors in this case are diligently and thoroughly weighing not just evidence provided by agents, but also all the other witnesses in this case, including witnesses for the defense. That is the job of the prosecutors. They should not be pressured, rushed, or criticized for doing their job,” he continued.

However, Clark added that he had not yet been contacted by any federal investigators in reference to any charges, and said, “Therefore, a rendition of the case from such an ‘agent’ is inherently biased, one-sided, and inaccurate. It is regrettable that law enforcement agents appear to be violating the law to prejudice a case against a person who is a target simply because of his family name.”
