Federal prosecutors are reportedly considering charging President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, with multiple crimes ranging from various aspects of his business dealings to his lying on a background check to obtain a firearm.
Fox News reported that the office of Delaware US Attorney David Weiss was considering charging Hunter Biden with “various tax” crimes and “possible foreign lobbying” crimes, while CNN reported that investigators appear to have narrowed their focus to potential tax crimes and “gun-related” crimes.
The potential gun charges are tied to Hunter Biden’s “purchase of a firearm at a time he would have been prohibited from doing so because of his acknowledged struggles with drug addiction.”
Both prominent US outlets reported that the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden that has been ongoing for four years has reached a “critical stage”. Some officials are worried that the fact that Hunter Biden is a crack cocaine addict could weaken any charges they bring against him because the defence could claim that he was not aware of his potential crimes for being on drugs.
The latest news about the looming criminal charges that Hunter Biden faces in the near future did not include information from a separate report earlier this month which suggested that the president’s son could also face federal charges related to prostitution.
The development comes as new information has reportedly been uncovered from his laptop, and graphic images of Hunter Biden have circulated on social media recently, including footage of him weighing a large quantity of what many alleged online was crack cocaine.
Texts from Hunter Biden’s iPhone appear to reveal that he wrote cheques to escorts provided by Moreva, whose website touted a “‘girlfriend experience’ with prostitutes as young as 20,” the news site reported. Videos and images from the phone indicate the president’s son helped transport those prostitutes over state lines, which the site noted could constitute a federal offence.
The report noted that Hunter Biden, if he faces federal prostitution charges, could be hit for allegedly violating the Mann Act, which states: “Whoever knowingly transports any individual in interstate or foreign commerce, or in any Territory or Possession of the United States, with intent that such individual engage in prostitution, or in any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense [sic] or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both.”
President Biden has repeatedly denied discussing Hunter’s business ventures with him.
