We know that there are many parts of the world where it will be almost impossible to touch anyone from the family of someone who is the President or Prime Minister of that country due to obvious reasons as they currently hold all the power in the country and can easily dismiss any charges levied against their family be it correct or incorrect. However, we can clearly applaud the US judicial system in that regards because it is seen that Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden is currently facing nine criminal charges of fraud in federal tax case which has been running from quite some time now.
CNN reports that “The charges span nine counts, including failure to file and pay taxes; evasion of assessment; and false or fraudulent tax return”. The report also mentions that Hunter Biden “engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million” in taxes that he owed from 2016 through 2019. Though Hunter Biden did eventually pay his taxes from 2018, prosecutors allege that he included “false business deductions in order to evade assessment of taxes to reduce the substantial tax liabilities he faced.” It is also alleged that Hunter Biden “subverted the payroll and tax withholding process of his own company” by withdrawing millions of dollars outside of its payroll and tax withholding process.
Joe Biden’s son is alleged to have “spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle rather than paying his tax bills,” according to the indictment, which states that “between 2016 and October 15, 2020, the Defendant spent this money on drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes.”
Hunter Biden’s attorney said “First, U.S. Attorney Weiss bowed to Republican pressure to file unprecedented and unconstitutional gun charges to renege on a non-prosecution resolution. Now, after five years of investigating with no new evidence – and two years after Hunter paid his taxes in full – the U.S. Attorney has piled on nine new charges when he had agreed just months ago to resolve this matter with a pair of misdemeanors,”
