A Delaware federal magistrate dismissed all tax-related charges against Hunter Biden on Thursday afternoon.
The Hill reports that U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika dismissed the charges after federal prosecutor David Weiss filed a motion to dismiss and asked for a change of venue last week.
In the end, Noreika granted the motion.
The same or similar allegations are likely to be refiled in either California or Washington, D.C., according to NBC News.
According to NBC News, Hunter Biden did not pay any taxes in either 2017 or 2018, despite earning substantial income in both years.
In addition to purchasing a firearm while dependent on narcotics in 2018, he falsified a government document to do so, which is a felony.
Biden was going to plead guilty until Noreika, who was nominated to the bench by then-President Donald Trump in 2017, dismantled the agreement.
Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, was the driving force behind the deal that would have had the son of President Joe Biden plead guilty in exchange for no prison time.
The agreement was criticized for being too lenient.
Furthermore, the prosecutor has been accused of dragging out investigations into the first family.
Two IRS informants who worked on the Hunter Biden investigation have claimed that the government interfered with the investigation.
Weiss was appointed special counsel in a larger investigation into Hunter Biden last week after he requested the position and Attorney General Merrick Garland granted his request.
Last week, Garland stated, “As special counsel, he will continue to have the authority and responsibility that he previously exercised in overseeing the investigation and determining where, when, and whether to file charges.”
