Report: DOJ Mulling Charges for Hunter Biden

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering if tax and gun-related charges will be brought against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in connection to a federal investigation into his business dealings.

The investigation into Hunter Biden, led by U.S. District Attorney David Weiss, has “intensified” recently as officials discuss moving forward in a politically delicate case as the midterms loom, sources told CNN.

The DOJ initially investigated Hunter Biden for possible financial crimes, including money laundering and campaign finance laws, while Joe Biden was vice president, CNN noted. But the DOJ has reportedly limited its scope to focus solely on allegations the president’s son committed tax and gun-related crimes.

Joe Biden was not included in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings, according to CNN.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland reminded DOJ employees how the department expects political cases in an election year to be handled in a May 25 memo.

“Department of Justice employees are entrusted with the authority to enforce the laws of the United States and with the responsibility to do so in a neutral and impartial manner,” Garland wrote in the May memo. “This is particularly important in an election year.”

The memo told investigators to be careful with “election year sensitivities” and to avoid “timing of public statements (attributed or not), investigative steps, criminal charges, or any other action in any matter or case for the purpose of affecting any election, or for the purpose of giving an advantage or disadvantage to any candidate or political party.”

Republicans in the House have promised to investigate the President and Hunter Biden’s business dealings if the party takes back control of the House after the midterm elections, going so far as to set up “Investigation 101” seminars to teach members the procedures.

    It won’t happen but as long as the Democrats get off and others are locked under the capital, things are never going to change if we accept what’s happening

    Politics should have NOTHING to do with their investigation!!! Just because his dad thinks that he is POTUS, doesn’t mean that his kid gets a free ride, in a “normal” world anyway…

    It makes me sick that most politicians today have no morals, honor, or integrity…

    The key word in the headline is “mulling” charges, watch this all get swept under the rug.

  • Phil Barberg says:

    The DOJ run by the Democrats is careful not to bring up Hunters laptop with all the corruption. Corruption with the Big Guy getting foreign pay offs in the Ukraine and with China. That path would take down the presidency!
