The Department of Justice is reportedly close to making a decision on whether or not to charge Hunter Biden with tax and gun-related offenses. This comes after a lengthy investigation into the first son’s potential crimes that has spanned two presidential administrations.
Federal prosecutors recently met with Hunter’s attorneys in Washington to discuss the ongoing investigation, which has been ongoing for over four years. Insiders familiar with the matter say that the US Attorney from Delaware, David Weiss, is close to determining whether to pursue charges against Hunter or drop the case entirely.
FBI investigators have reportedly expressed frustration over the pace of the inquiry, and an IRS whistleblower has alleged that Hunter has received preferential treatment under the auspices of Attorney General Merrick Garland. Despite these concerns, Garland has maintained that there were no political motives behind any delays in the investigation.
It remains unclear how Hunter’s abandoned laptop has aided the investigation after the FBI seized its hard drive in late 2019. Hunter has been seen by his father’s side in recent weeks, including during a trip to Ireland where President Joe Biden publicly praised his son and said he was proud of him.
The mounting evidence against Joe Biden being complicit and profiting from Hunter Biden’s corrupt business deals is concerning. It’s time for the Department of Justice to do the right thing and charge Hunter with the crimes he has committed.
