‘Slap on the Wrist’: Hunter Biden Agrees to Plead ‘Guilty’ on Federal Tax Charges


President Biden’s second son, Hunter is set to plead guilty to two federal tax crimes and admit guilt for a felony gun charge.

The charges are part of a plea deal Hunter Biden has reached with prosecutors from the Justice Department in an investigation first opened in 2018 during the Trump administration.

The DOJ charged the president’s son with unlawful possession of a firearm in Delaware while “knowing that he was an unlawful user of and addicted to a controlled substance.”

Biden, 53, is also charged with failure to pay taxes in 2017 and 2018 for a combined tax liability of roughly $1.2 million. Those taxes have reportedly been fully paid.

Christopher Clark, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, said in a statement that it was his understanding that the five-year investigation had now been resolved.

“I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life,” Clark said. “He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”

Former President Trump blasted the plea deal, writing on his social media platform Truth Social that the “corrupt Biden D-O-J” gave Hunter Biden “a mere ‘traffic ticket'” and claiming “our system is broken.”

Joe Biden has also faced questions about his son’s business dealings and drug addiction.

The White House counsel’s office said in a statement that the president and first lady Jill Biden “love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life.”

Two people familiar with the investigation told the Associated Press the Justice Department would recommend probation for the tax charges, meaning Hunter Biden will not face time behind bars. But the decision to go along with any deal is up to the judge.

The gun charge carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison, but the Justice Department said Hunter Biden had reached a pretrial agreement. Full details were not immediately disclosed. {eoa}
