Hunter Biden’s Legal Trouble Just Got Much Worse
Federal prosecutors are ramping up their investigation into Hunter Biden’s financial dealings.
According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware is gathering information related to money that the president’s son received from Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma Holdings Ltd., and how he used that money.
Between 2014 and 2019, Biden served on Burisma’s board, earning roughly $50,000 a month. This prompted then-President Trump to ask Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky to investigate Biden’s father, Joe Biden — a request that led to Trump’s first impeachment.
Prosecutors also questioned one of Biden’s associates about his drug and alcohol abuse, spending habits, and mental state in 2018.
The investigation into Biden’s taxes began in 2018 and expanded to include potential violations of foreign lobbying and money laundering laws.
Prosecutors are also reportedly investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings in other countries, including China and Kazakhstan.
The Journal said it couldn’t determine how close the investigation is to being complete.
