On Thursday, December 7, 2023, Justice Department special counsel David Wess announced that the court was indicting Hunter for failing to pay his income taxes.

Hunter Biden’s team has attempted to agree with the court on a plea bargain over the last months, but they weren’t successful.

His lawyers wanted him to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts for failure to pay taxes in 2017 and 2018. Instead, the California court charged him with three felony tax offenses and six misdemeanors.

He involved himself in a scheme and didn’t pay about $1.4 million in self-assessed taxes for over three years from 2016 through 2019. According to the indictment, he also avoided tax assessment for 2018 after providing false returns.

The indictment also claims that from 2016 to 2020, Hunter Biden spent money “on drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes.”

Furthermore, special counsel David Wess charged Hunter Biden in Delaware with three federal gun charges. He also suggested that Hunter lied about his drug use when he repurchased a revolver in 2018. However, Hunter pleaded not guilty to the charges against him on October 3.

Hunter’s legal team has not been silent about the turn of events in courts. “Based on the facts and the law, if Hunter’s last name was anything other than Biden, the charges in Delaware, and now California, would not have been brought,” said Abbe Lowell, an attorney for Hunter Biden, in a statement.

“Now, after five years of investigating with no new evidence – and two years after Hunter paid his taxes in full – the U.S. Attorney has piled on nine new charges when he had agreed just months ago to resolve this matter with a pair of misdemeanors,” Lowell said.

If Hunter is convicted of the tax charges, the Justice Department says he might get the maximum penalty of 17 years in prison. The department also pointed out that prison time for federal crimes is usually less than maximum penalties. Whichever way, it doesn’t look good that the president’s son is facing possible jail time for tax evasion.

According to Congressman Jason Smith, head of the House Ways and Means, the congress needs to conduct an impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden because of the new charges “in order to uncover all the facts.” Smith said the charges against Hunter spanned years when he earned millions of dollars thanks to the family reputation owed largely to Joe Biden’s political career.

Hunter Biden allegedly spent millions on various things, including clothes and women. Also, he failed to pay his taxes while living an extravagant life. Now, he faces two felony charges for filing a false return and another felony charge for tax evasion. Meanwhile, the six misdemeanor counts are for failing to file returns or pay his taxes when due.
