DOJ considering criminal charges in Hunter Biden probe

Hunter Biden’s tax troubles are the subject of a federal investigation that has reached a “critical stage,” a source told Fox News.

Officials are deciding whether to file charges against the president’s son for multiple tax offenses, conceivable crimes related to foreign lobbying, and more.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Hunter Biden has been the subject of a federal investigation since 2018.

Despite the fact that no charges have been filed, a second source told Fox News that the federal grand jury looking into Hunter Biden’s business dealings had just completed its most recent term.

Former President Donald Trump nominated David Weiss, a federal prosecutor in Delaware, to lead the probe.

According to the source, Weiss and Justice Department officials were considering whether to accuse Hunter Biden of various tax offenses and, more gravely, potential violations related to foreign lobbying. This information was provided to Fox News on Wednesday. According to the source, Hunter Biden might be charged with making false claims.

However, the source emphasized that there has been no final decision on whether to charge Hunter Biden and that the investigation is still underway.

Hunter Biden was originally mentioned as a target of the grand jury inquiry by Fox News in December 2020, citing an informed government source. The source claims that a “target” is someone who you “highly suspect committed a crime,” but a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure has done a crime.”

Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) on dubious overseas transactions served as the foundation for the FBI investigation into Hunter Biden.
