(ConservativeSense.com) – Hunter Biden could be about to face tax-related criminal charges in California. The president’s son’s finances are under scrutiny by federal agencies, which reportedly noted potential offenses while reviewing his tax affairs for 2014 to 2019. He is accused of failing to pay taxes on income from various foreign businesses, including millions of dollars from Ukrainian firm Burisma. The funding from Burisma was allegedly funneled through a Chinese company, which then loaned the cash to Hunter Biden, allowing him to avoid income taxes.
In testimony to Congress recently, former business associate Devon Archer said Burisma paid $83,000 monthly to Hunter Biden, sent through Bohai Harvest Rosemont (BHR), a Chinese state-backed investment fund.
On September 14, Special Counsel David Weiss indicted Hunter Biden on three charges related to unlawful firearms possession. The president’s son is alleged to have filled out a form for a federal firearms dealer and provided false answers to questions related to substance abuse and addiction. Mr. Biden was allegedly a prolific drug user when he purchased the gun.
He was not charged with tax-related offenses on September 14, and the indictment was filed with the US District Court in Delaware.
Hunter Biden had previously made a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges and avoid prison time. The gun-related counts would be suspended upon the agreement that Mr. Biden would stay out of trouble for two years and not attempt to purchase weapons.
However, the deal was later thrown out by Judge Maryellen Noreika, and Special Counsel Weiss filed the indictment weeks later.
House Republicans are also investigating Hunter Biden’s affairs and continue to question whether President Biden was involved in, or aware of, shady business dealings involving his son.
If convicted of the firearms-related offenses, Hunter Biden faces a potential 25-year prison sentence, although a Justice Department official says it is unlikely he will receive the maximum penalty.
