Hunter Biden's Federal Tax Case Takes a Turn: Indicted on 9 Criminal Charges

Hunter Biden is facing some serious trouble. He has been charged with nine things related to taxes in California. This is part of a bigger investigation into what President Joe Biden's son has been doing with his business. This investigation is becoming a big deal right as we are getting closer to the 2024 election.

So, what are these new charges? Well, there are three big charges and six smaller ones. They come on top of some other charges about guns in Delaware. These are not small issues, and they could mean big trouble for Hunter Biden. The charges say he spent a lot of money on a fancy lifestyle instead of paying his taxes. The total amount he owed in taxes was around $1.4 million for the years 2016 to 2019. This is a time when Hunter Biden was going through a tough period because of his addiction. He has paid the back taxes now, but if he is found guilty, he could be in prison for up to 17 years.

Hunter's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, is not happy about these charges. He says that the person in charge of the investigation is doing it because of pressure from the Republican party. Lowell even suggests that if Hunter's last name was not Biden, these charges might not have come up. The White House is not saying much and is directing questions to the Justice Department or Hunter Biden's representatives.

The documents that talk about these charges focus a lot on how Hunter spent money on things like drugs, strippers, fancy hotels, and cool cars. The charges are a big deal, especially because they are happening while some Republicans are trying to start an inquiry to remove President Biden from office. They are saying that the President did some bad things with his son, but so far, there is no proof of that.

This investigation into Hunter Biden has been going on for a long time. It was supposed to finish with a deal where Hunter would get probation for two years. He would admit to some smaller tax charges, and in return, he wouldn't be in trouble for the gun issue. But people didn't like that deal, and now we have these new charges.

Hunter's defense team plans to fight these new charges. They might use parts of the old deal to help them. But the prosecutors say that the old deal is not valid because it was never signed by a judge.

This whole situation is making things more complicated for Hunter Biden and his family, especially with the 2024 election on the horizon.
