HUNTER Biden has been indicted on tax charges and could face jail time following a long investigation by the Deparmtent of Justice.
This is the second criminal case against the President’s son that has been brought against him by special counsel David Weiss.
Biden has been charged with nine counts including failure to file and pay taxes, evasion of assessment, and false or fraudulent tax return.
The case was almost resolved in July, however, a plea deal fell apart and now a new case has emerged from Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.
Biden allegedly missed several IRS deadlines to pay his federal taxes on time, according to court filings from the now-defunct plea deal.
He allegedly owes about $2million to the government, which he paid in 2021 using money loaned from a friend.
But prosecutors have inquired about Biden’s finances since 2018 with Weiss, an attorney appointed by former President Donald Trump, being designated to special counsel in August of that year.
Over the summer, Biden agreed to plead guilty to two tax misdemeanors and was looking at no jail time.
Prosecutors agreed that a gun charge would be dropped in two years if he stayed out of legal trouble.
However, the deal fell through after there were disagreements over the fine print.
Biden was incited by Weiss in September on three charges related to him purchasing a gun at a shop in Delaware in 2018 when prosecutors said she was an illegal drug user.
He has pleaded not guilty in the gun possession and false statements case.
Biden’s attorneys accused Weiss of “bending to political pressure”: from Republicans, saying that his actions “present a grave threat to our system of justice.”
