It was just last week that Special Counsel David Weiss charged Hunter Biden with a trio of federal felony firearms offenses in Delaware in relation to his lying about his illicit drug use in order to illegally purchase a handgun in 2018.
Now comes word that Weiss is preparing to criminally indict the president's son again, this time over alleged tax crimes, likely in California, according to Breitbart.
Those alleged tax law violations almost certainly stem from Hunter's years of dubious foreign business dealings and apparent influence-peddling while his father, President Joe Biden, served as vice president, which also raises the prospect of additional federal charges in regard to his alleged violations of the Foreign Agent Registration Act if not also money laundering and other felony crimes.
ABC News reported last week that Special Counsel Weiss criminally indicted Hunter Biden in Delaware with three federal felony charges, two of which involved making false statements on a federal gun purchase form, while the third dealt with his unlawful possession of a firearm as an admitted illicit drug addict at that time.
If convicted on all three counts and given the maximum sentence for each crime, the president's son could face up to 25 years in federal prison and an immense fine, which is a far cry from the exceedingly minor possible punishment Biden previously faced in a scuttled proposed plea deal.
In June, Biden's attorneys and federal prosecutors reached a deal in which Biden would plead guilty to a pair of tax misdemeanors and receive probation while the gun charges would be dismissed in a diversionary program if he stayed out of trouble.
That deal fell apart, however, under the scrutiny of a federal judge who questioned during what was expected to be a rubberstamp hearing the apparent broad immunity from future prosecution of other crimes that was hidden within the agreement.
"Thursday's charge is unlikely to be the last," ABC News reported last week. "Weiss also withdrew the two misdemeanor tax charges in Delaware with the intention of bringing them in California and Washington, D.C. -- the venues where the alleged misconduct occurred. Prosecutors have not offered a timeline for those charges."
Fast-forward to Monday and a report from The Washington Post about Hunter Biden's attorneys filing a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service over allegations that his privacy rights had been violated by IRS whistleblowers who came forward to Congress to shed light on preferential treatment the president's son had received from his father's Justice Department in a years-long federal investigation.
Tucked away deep within that report was a mention of the felony firearms indictment and the revelation that "Special counsel David Weiss might soon file a new indictment against Hunter Biden in another federal court -- potentially in California -- over alleged tax crimes that the agents say they found in reviewing his finances from 2014 to 2019."
Per Breitbart, and based on the sworn testimony of the IRS whistleblowers, Biden is alleged to have failed to even report, much less pay what was due, upwards of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in income received over the years from foreign sources, including communist China.
To be sure, Hunter Biden and his attorneys, to say nothing of President Biden and the White House, have vehemently insisted that no wrongdoing whatsoever occurred and that any criminal charges are politically motivated, but those claims of innocence whither in the face of mounting evidence of illegal and unethical behavior.
Indeed, House Republican investigations have painted an increasingly clear picture of apparent criminal wrongdoing by Hunter and other members of the Biden family, including the president, which led to the recent launch of a formal impeachment inquiry.
Furthermore, Breitbart noted that recent public polling also shows that a majority of the American people now believe that Hunter Biden not only engaged in criminal activity but also that the president was likely involved in or had knowledge of his son's questionable foreign business schemes
