President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was hit with numerous felony charges on Thursday night stemming from a federal investigation into his taxes.

CNN reported that Hunter was hit with nine counts on charges that include failure to file and pay taxes; evasion of assessment; and false or fraudulent tax return.

Special Counsel David Weiss recently impaneled a federal grand jury in Los Angeles that was weighing evidence related to potential tax crimes.

“The Defendant engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019,” prosecutors said in court documents, adding that he “willfully failed” to pay the owed taxes “despite having access to funds to pay some or all of these taxes.”

Prosecutors said that Hunter Biden made more than $7 million during that time span, which included money that he received from Burisma, CEFC China Energy, and others.


“Between 2016 and October 15, 2020, the Defendant spent this 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,” prosecutors said.

Hunter Biden was indicted on federal gun charges in September after the prosecutors and Hunter Biden’s legal team failed to reach an agreement on a plea deal that fell apart in August. The agreement fell apart after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika questioned the limits of Hunter’s immunity under the deal.

Hunter Biden was charged with three crimes related to false statements made on a federal application to purchase a firearm. The charges relate to a time when, in October 2018, Hunter claimed he was clean of drugs to purchase a handgun. He later wrote in his memoir that he was addicted to crack cocaine at the time.
