The federal prosecutors looking into Hunter Biden are looking closely at his drug addiction and the income he made from Burisma that was promptly cut in half as soon as Daddy Joe left the vice presidency. The case is over possible income tax evasion. They have been gathering evidence on his drug and alcohol abuse as well as his foreign earnings, specifically the money he was paid by Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.
They are trying to determine what kind of defense, he plans to make in his tax evasion trial. The investigation into Biden’s financial dealings began in 2018 and has expanded to cover not registering as an agent for foreign countries and money laundering laws. It is believed that Hunter could have broken the law through his business relationships in Ukraine, China, Kazakhstan, and elsewhere. The Biden crime family has tentacles all across the globe.
Federal prosecutors are looking at the money Hunter received from Burisma that was funneled through Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC before going to Hunter. That could be to hide the income from the IRS. They also want to know if he used his father’s position in order to increase his value to Burisma. That should be obvious since Burisma cut his pay in half once Joe was out of the vice presidency.
Hunter’s relationship became an issue just before the 2020 election when emails were produced from Hunter’s abandoned laptop. That showed that Hunter had introduced people from Burisma to Daddy Dearest.
Documents obtained from Biden’s laptop were initially dismissed as “Russian disinformation” during the election, only for the Post’s reporting to be vindicated more than a year later in a New York Times report that verified the content of the laptop.
The Biden family’s Burisma ties were the reason former President Donald Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to investigate the Biden family during an infamous July 2019 phone call. House Democrats impeached Trump over that request, but the GOP-controlled Senate acquitted the president.
In December 2020, after his father won the White House, Hunter Biden revealed the existence of the federal probe into his tax matters by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware. At the time, he said he was “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.”
