Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some tea and it involves President elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
Federal prosecutors are investigating Hunter Biden, to determine if he failed to report income from China related business deals; This is according to people familiar with the situation. The investigation into the president elect’s son began in 2018, though little could be learned immediately about what, if any, wrongdoing it had found.
The existence of a tax investigation was confirmed by Hunter Biden in a statement saying he had just been advised of it on Wednesday.
According to a someone familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing and politically sensitive investigation, FBI agents had been seeking to talk to Hunter Biden as part of the case on Tuesday even though an interview has not been scheduled or taken place as well as serve subpoenas on Hunter Biden and his associates.
The investigation has been ongoing for some time, it is not clear how far along prosecutors consider themselves toward building a criminal case or closing the matter. The subject of an investigation typically is interviewed when prosecutors have amassed a good deal of evidence though prosecutors seeking to serve subpoenas as recently as this week suggests there is more investigative work to be done.
People familiar with the case said that the investigation continued during the election year but that agents took care not to take overt investigative steps as voting neared that would have made it more widely known. Those precautions, became unnecessary once the election was over.
George Mesires, Hunter Biden’s attorney did not respond to requests for additional information about the case.
