Hunter Faces More Criminal Charges

( – The legal blows against Joe Biden’s crime family may have only started with Hunter’s new indictment as more criminal charges are expected, potentially threatening the president’s reelection candidacy.

Hunter Biden was indicted last week by US Justice Department Special Counsel David Weiss on three felony gun charges for lying on federal forms and owning a gun while addicted to drugs.

The indictment came after, in July, the first son’s probation-only plea deal collapsed at a court hearing in Delaware.

“The charges carry a combined maximum sentence of 25 years, but the president’s son could face even more prison time on tax fraud and foreign lobbying charges linked to President Biden’s time as vice president,” The Washington Times writes in a report.

Weiss is now expected to also bring charges against Hunter Biden for failing to pay over $200,000 in taxes in 2017 and 2018.

During the July court hearing, federal prosecutors indicated their investigation into the first son could also expand to charges of violating FARA, the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

The report stresses that Biden Jr. “raked in millions of dollars” from foreign business dealings, including by touting his father’s position as the vice president. It is noted that FARA violations led to prison terms for “multiple Trump associates.”

“That seems like a slam dunk. He [Hunter Biden] took money on behalf of foreign actors and advocated for them and didn’t register,” commented Mike Davis, a former counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, who heads the Article III Project, a nonprofit advocating for constitutionalist judges and the rule of law.

The Times points out that the first son’s “growing legal problems” complicate the existing hurdles in his father’s reelection bid, including public concerns over the president’s advanced age and fitness for office.

The report argues that the consequences from the collapse of Hunter Biden’s plea deal will thus be more far-reaching than it might have appeared at first glance.

“Mr. Biden had hoped his son’s legal troubles would be fully settled by now, but they have only grown more serious and more likely to implicate him after the plea deal on tax and gun charges crumbled in federal court this summer,” the conservative newspaper comments.

After Hunter Biden’s indictment last week, his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, claimed that the plea deal had fallen apart solely due to “MAGA Republicans’ improper and partisan interference.”
