That would be legal problems for Hunter not Joe.
We all have written about the legal problems that our current president has been facing for the last four years…..and it is a simple joy to have a president-elect that is not facing legal questions…..Joe is not but son Hunter is facing investigations.
Hunter Biden, son of President-elect Joe Biden, confirmed Wednesday that his tax affairs are under federal investigation. “I learned yesterday for the first time that the US Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” he said in a statement, per the Hill. “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.” Hunter Biden, who served on the board of an energy company in Ukraine while his father was vice president, was attacked by Trump allies during the presidential campaign, with Rudy Giuliani claiming he had a laptop with proof of criminal conduct.
The tax investigation “is not connected to the attacks the Trump campaign and their allies made against Hunter during the campaign,” an insider tells the Washington Post. “President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger,” the transition team said in a statement. GOP Rep. Ken Buck urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden before Trump leaves office in six weeks, saying it “would be wildly inappropriate if his dad’s AG was involved in this matter.”
What could possibly the problems and/or issues that Biden is facing?
The investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs centers around business deals with China, a source tells the AP. Specifically, officials are looking into whether the younger Biden and his associates violated any tax or money laundering laws, sources tell CNN. The probe was launched a year before Joe Biden, who is not implicated, announced his presidential run, but the younger Biden didn’t learn of it until this week; sources say that it was a Justice Department policy barring “overt investigative acts” that might impact elections that prevented investigators from disclosing the probe to Hunter Biden earlier. Now that the election is over, federal prosecutors are serving subpoenas, including one for Hunter Biden, and seeking interviews.
President Trump was, perhaps not surprisingly, crowing about the probe on Twitter: “‘10% of voters would have changed their vote if they knew about Hunter Biden.’ Miranda Devine @nypost @TuckerCarlson But I won anyway!” the POTUS wrote Wednesday. “‘If you’re looking for Election Rigging, look no further. That’s what this is. They kept information from the public in order to influence the outcome of the Election. They RIGGED it.’ @TuckerCarlson.” Needless to say, this whole issue could prove quite tricky for Joe Biden, who has pledged to keep the Justice Department free of political influence; whomever he selects as attorney general could ultimately oversee the probe into his own son if it has not been resolved by January.
It will be interesting to see if the MSM jumps on this as hard as they jumped on the Trump kids….
If he, Biden, is guilty then he needs to be prosecuted…..as the Trump kids should be.
