Following extensive investigations into potential crimes involving taxes and a gun purchase, the Department of Justice is approaching a decision on whether to charge first son Hunter Biden.
The New York Post reported that federal prosecutors met with Hunter Biden’s counsel last week before deciding whether or not to proceed.
Attorneys for Hunter met with prosecutors from the US Attorney’s office in Delaware, David Weiss, to discuss the ongoing investigation that has spanned two presidential administrations and endured over four years.
Weiss is close to deciding whether he will pursue charges against Hunter on felony and misdemeanor tax offenses, as well as lying on a federal gun purchasing form, or abandon the case entirely, according to sources who spoke with The Washington Post.
“FBI investigators reportedly expressed ‘growing frustration’ over the pace of the investigation, and an IRS whistleblower claimed Hunter received ‘preferential treatment’ under the supervision of Attorney General Merrick Garland,” The Washington Post reported.
Tuesday, Garland instructed reporters to direct questions about the investigation to Weiss’s office and reaffirmed his previous statements to Congress that any delays in the Hunter investigation were not due to political motivations. The Post added that Garland was absent from the meeting between Hunter’s attorneys and the Delaware prosecutor in Washington.
“It is also unclear how Hunter’s abandoned laptop has aided the probe after the FBI seized its hard drive in late 2019,” the outlet noted further.
In recent weeks, Hunter has been seen by his father’s side, including on a recent trip to Ireland, where President Joe Biden publicly praised his son and declared himself “proud” of him.
Isn’t it ironic that the Department of Justice chose yesterday to near the end of their investigation into Hunter Biden to make their decision whether or not to charge him?

The tax investigation into Hunter’s international business dealings with Chinese and Ukrainian entities commenced in 2018, investigating any potential tax and money laundering violations. Hallie Biden, Hunter’s ex-sister-in-law and lover, disposed of his handgun in a dumpster behind a small grocery store in Delaware, prompting a search by Secret Service agents and the disclosure of its sale to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Explosives.
According to an October 2018 form for the purchase of a firearm, Hunter answered “no” to the query “Are you an illegal user or addict of marijuana or any other depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or other controlled substance?”
In previous federal cases, felonies have been presented for lying on a gun form, as in the case of rapper Kodak Black. In 2019, he received a three-year prison sentence for fraudulently purchasing four firearms from a Miami store.
In 2013, Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve due to a positive cocaine test. Hunter acknowledged in his autobiography, “Beautiful Things,” that he was abusing crack at the time of the missing gun incident.
