Hunter Biden indicted on criminal tax charges in California


Recommended Posts

Washington Examiner

Hunter Biden was hit with criminal tax charges on Thursday, marking the second time the president's son has been indicted since his father took office.

Special counsel David Weiss, who is leading the prosecution, brought nine charges against Biden in the Central District of California, alleging in the indictment that the first son failed to pay $1.4 million in federal taxes over a four-year period.

The charges comprise three felonies and six misdemeanors, including failing to pay taxes, failing to file taxes, and filing false returns from 2016 to 2019.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of up to 17 years in prison, though any sentence Hunter Biden receives could end up being much lower than that based on typical sentencing practices.


The indictment alleges Biden cheated on his taxes and failed to pay what was owed while living a lavish lifestyle. In deep detail, the indictment lays out expenses on escorts, pornography, drugs, luxury hotels, and even a Lamborghini.

"Rather than pay his taxes, the Defendant spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle," the indictment said.

The revelation of the new charges comes after Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, attempted to reach a plea deal with the first son over the summer. The deal involved the first son pleading guilty to two misdemeanors for failing to pay taxes for two years, as well as entering into a pretrial diversion agreement to avoid a felony gun charge.:snip:

Hunter Biden Indicted on Nine Tax-Related Charges, Three Felonies

President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has been indicted on nine charges, including three felonies, for allegedly failing to file taxes, evading an assessment, and filing a fraudulent form.

The 56-page indictment filed in a federal court in Los Angeles on Thursday alleged that the president’s son “spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle” rather than pay his taxes, per NBC News. The indictment also alleges that Hunter Biden “willfully failed to pay his 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 taxes on time, despite having access to funds to pay some or all of these taxes.”:snip:

Joe Biden was omitted from Hunter’s new indictment by design

Predictably, the big takeaway from Hunter Biden’s indictment by Dem media is that it is “far from helpful to the Republicans.”

“It never mentions President Biden, not even indirectly,” said The New York Times, “and provides no evidence linking the misdeeds of the son to the father.”

It’s as if they live in a cave without access to modern communications.

The reason the president has gone unmentioned after a five-year investigation into Hunter’s role in the family influence-peddling racket is that the DOJ, like most of the media, corruptly protected him.

As IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley keep telling Congress, every investigative avenue that led to Joe Biden was blocked.

This is why those IRS investigators were forced to blow the whistle.

A few examples:

  • The FBI FD 1023 alleging Joe was bribed $5 million by Ukraine was kept from investigators.
  • Investigators were refused access to Hunter’s laptop that the FBI had been given in December 2019 by Delaware computer repairer John Paul Mac Isaac.
  • A search warrant of a cottage on Joe’s Delaware estate was denied.
  • A plan to search Hunter’s storage unit was leaked to his lawyers.
  • Questions about the “Big Guy” were not allowed in interviews with witnesses.
  • Interviews with Biden family members were banned.
  • Joe’s presidential transition team was tipped off in December 2020 that Shapley and an FBI agent were in California to interview Hunter the next morning (and thus they never did).
  • The statute of limitations was allowed to expire on the potentially most serious charges from 2014 and 2015, involving payments from Ukraine which could have ensnared Joe.:snip:

New evidence chronicles efforts to conceal Hunter Biden’s tax problems from voters in 2020

New evidence released by the House Ways and Means Committee from IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler chronicles Hunter Biden’s alleged efforts, with the help of Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, to conceal delinquent taxes from the electorate as his father campaigned for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Morris, a Democrat donor, lent millions to Hunter Biden so he could pay off the tax debts and cover other expenses after warning the tax issues posed "considerable risk personally and politically" for the future first family, according to testimony and documents Ziegler gave lawmakers.

The IRS agent supplemented his original whistleblower testimony from the summer with the documents at a closed door hearing Tuesday before the committee.

The new documents shed light on alleged Justice Department obstruction of the tax case and broader political interference in the investigation, but they also provided more details on the high-powered Hollywood lawyer's assistance to Hunter Biden, confirming previous reporting by Just the News.:snip:

The Son-Of-A-Gun-Number-One-Son Might Just Toss Pops Under the Bus

So we finally have a serious indictment of Hunter Biden. Well, half-serious. After having been stiffed by lawyers for Biden fils, special counsel David Weiss removed one glove, checked the statute of limitations clock and the north-by-northwest breezes of public sentiment, and decided that he had better slip in a valid indictment or two, ones with some semblance of teeth or at least dentures,  before time ran out on all of them.

Back in August, I wrote in this space about “the sweetheart deal to end all sweetheart deals” that Weiss offered Hunter. Weiss was, I noted, “supposed to be prosecuting the case. In fact,” I continued,

it would be closer to the truth to say he was burying it.  The full measure of sugar he shoveled into the deal is something that became known only accidentally thanks to an attentive judge. The world knew that Hunter was escaping any jail time for his tax and felony gun crimes.  We discovered that the deal also immunized Hunter against future indictment only because Judge Maryellen Noreika, who presided in the case, actually read the deal and had the gumption to say “Hey, what’s this?:snip:
