Prosecutors Near Charging Decision for Hunter Biden 

Prosecutors are nearing a decision on whether to charge Democrat President Joe Biden’s son Hunter with tax and gun-related crimes.

The investigation into the scandalous first son has been going on for four years.

According to The Washington Post, Biden’s attorneys met at Justice Department headquarters last week to discuss the case with U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware.

Hunter Biden’s lawyers will be using the meetings to beg prosecutors for no charges or try to make a last-minute deal on lesser charges.

Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland claims that Weiss, who served in the Trump administration, can do what he wants.

However, Garland will have to approve the charges.

“I stand by my testimony, and I refer you to the U.S. attorney for the District of Delaware, who is in charge of this case and capable of making any decisions that he feels are appropriate,” Garland said yesterday about charging Hunter.

According to The Washington Post:

The Washington Post reported last year that federal agents had concluded that they had enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes and making a false statement related to a gun purchase. 

But it is ultimately up to prosecutors at the Justice Department, not agents, to decide whether to file charges; prosecutors generally do so if they think the evidence is likely to lead to a conviction at trial.

The investigation into Hunter Biden began in 2018 and centered on his finances related to overseas business ties and consulting work.

Over time, investigators shifted their focus to whether he failed to report all of his income and whether he lied on a form for a gun purchase by denying that he was a drug abuser.
