Federal agents now have enough evidence to charge Democrat President Joe Biden’s son Hunter with tax and gun-related charges, according to the Washington Post.
A new leak to the Post from the Department of Justice (DOJ) reportedly reveals that federal agents now have chargeable cases against Hunter Biden.
However, it now falls to the U.S. Attorney in Delaware who must decide whether or not to charge the cases against the president’s son.
The leaking from the DOJ suggests that agents are trying to pressure prosecutors into pursuing charges.
Chris Clark, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, slammed investigators over the leaks.
“It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one,” Clark said.
“Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony.
“We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors.
“As is proper and legally required, we believe the prosecutors, in this case, are diligently and thoroughly weighing not just evidence provided by agents, but also all the other witnesses in this case, including witnesses for the defense.
“That is the job of the prosecutors.
“They should not be pressured, rushed, or criticized for doing their job.”

According to The Post:
Federal agents investigating President Biden’s son Hunter have gathered what they believe is sufficient evidence to charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to people familiar with the case.
The next step is for the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, a Trump administration holdover, to decide on whether to file such charges, these people said.
Over time, investigators with multiple agencies focused closely on whether he did not report all of his income, and whether he lied on gun purchase paperwork in 2018, according to the people familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing case.
