Prosecutors weighing charges in Hunter Biden investigation
(CNN) – Sources say federal prosecutors could bring charges against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
However, no decision has been made to move forward and nothing is likely to happen before the midterm elections.
The Washington Post reports federal agents believe they have sufficient evidence to charge the president’s son in two areas: tax crimes and making a false statement regarding a gun purchase.
Investigators have looked into multiple facets of Hunter Biden’s life, initially focusing on tax issues and money transfers related to business activities in China.
The younger Biden has spoken publicly about his drug addiction, which raised the possibility he broke federal law prohibiting firearm purchases by anyone who uses or is addicted to illegal drugs.
President Biden has repeatedly said he would not interfere in any Justice Department investigation.
U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee, is in charge of the federal investigation in Delaware.
