Feds Launch Tax Investigation into Hunter Biden, Son of President-Elect Joe Biden

////

WILMINGTON, DE –  With all eyes on President Donald J. Trump’s exit from public office, speculating who the President will pardon on his way out, his successor, Joe Biden might already be making a pardon list of his own…and his own son Hunter could be on it.

Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son whose abandoned laptop caused a stir in the media…well, not really…has now caught the inquiring eye of the Delaware Attorney General’s Office.

On Wednesday, Biden said he is being investigated by federal prosecutors in Delaware.


“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Hunter Biden said. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

The announcement comes weeks before his dad, Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America.

According to a report in CNN today Biden lawyers said the feds are, “examining multiple financial issues, including whether Hunter Biden and associates violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China.”

Joe Biden’s Vice President-elect Kamala Harris stood in defense of the younger Biden saying, “President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”
