Hunter Biden remains under criminal investigation after paying off $1 million tax liability

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter has paid off a huge tax liability, but remains under investigation for a “wide-ranging examination of his international business dealings.” The New York Times published a lengthy piece detailing just how much is going on in Hunter’s financial affairs.

“Hunter Biden told associates in recent months that he paid the federal taxes that had been the subject of Justice Department scrutiny. He told one associate that the tax liability was more than $1 million, and that he had to take out a loan to pay it off” reports the Times.

For two years, federal prosecutors in Delaware have issued numerous subpoenas relating to Hunter’s work abroad. And although Hunter has paid off his taxes, there is still much to uncover about his business transactions around the world. Although criminal charges against him remain, tax law experts say the fact that he has paid his debt may make juries and judges more sympathetic to a defendant who has paid their bills.

“As recently as last month, the federal grand jury heard testimony in Wilmington, Del., from two witnesses, one of whom was a former employee of Hunter Biden whose lawyer was later subpoenaed for financial records that reflected money Mr. Biden received from a Ukrainian energy company” writes the Times.

The investigation against Hunter began as a tax inquiry under the Obama administration and “widened in 2018 to include possible criminal violations of tax laws, as well as foreign lobbying and money laundering rules, according to the people familiar with the inquiry.”

One of the hurdles prosecutors face in bringing a charge against Hunter is being able to prove he purposely violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, “which requires disclosure to the Justice Department of lobbying or public relations assistance on behalf of foreign clients.”

However, there are emails in which “Mr. Biden displayed a familiarity with FARA, and a desire to avoid triggering it.” Another factor is prosecutors typically fight to keep jurors from knowing whether defendants have paid their back tax bills, arguing that the crime happens when the return is falsely filed or not filed at all. Due to the nature of Hunter Biden’s family and presidential power, prosecutors do not have the luxury of keeping much, if anything, private.

Hunter’s own father, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, also oversees the Justice Department which is carrying out the investigation.

    Yea, so Obiden oversees the D.O.J. that may prosecute Hunter. What could possibly go wrong?

    If Hunter has committed a crime, I expect him to be held accountable for his actions just as the rest of us American citizens would be. I do however have my doubts, especially after seeing that Jussie Smollett only served five days out of 150. Our country cannot function as it should while a two-tiered justice system is in place.

    Isn’t it amazing that Hunter Biden paid $1M taxes on money he claims he never had!

    He had to borrow a million dollars after al the payoff he received from foreign countries? Guess the “Big Guy” didn’t trust him for a loan out of his 10%. Or perhaps he knew it would go up in smoke!

    I used to think that an FBI investigation meant something serious. However, now I know that an FBI investigation is a black hole from which no truth or light can escape.

    Everyone knows Biden has dementia and yet he’s remained president, so I’m sure his son will be “under investigation” for a long time, with probably nothing ever being done.

    This is a prime example of our two-tiered justice system we have in America! If this had been the average Joe, he would have been charged and sent to jail and still been fined and ordered to pay restitution, and whatever else the government could stick him with! But NO, MONEY has a way of talking the language of the elite!

Former President Bill Clinton and Gov. Kathy Hochul Call for Changes to New York City’s “Right to Shelter Law”

In a surprising turn of events, former President Bill Clinton has joined forces with New York Governor Kathy Hochul in advocating for significant modifications to New York City’s long-standing “Right to Shelter Law.”

According to reports from Fox News, during an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis on 77 WABC radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” show, Clinton expressed his belief that the law, which mandates shelter for the homeless, should be revised given the current circumstances.

“Gov. [Kathy] Hochul thinks it should be modified, and it probably should under the circumstances,” Clinton remarked, acknowledging the need for change. He went on to assert that the existing law is fundamentally flawed, stating, “It’s broken. We need to fix it. It doesn’t make any sense.”

The “Right to Shelter Law” has been a fixture of New York City for over four decades and is aimed at ensuring that the homeless population has access to shelter. Moreover, New York City is often referred to as a sanctuary city, welcoming migrants and providing them with certain protections.

However, Clinton pointed out a specific concern related to this policy. He expressed his view that the city’s obligation to provide shelter extends to individuals who may not have work permits for up to six months after their arrival, raising questions about its practicality.

Furthermore, Clinton argued that migrants should have the opportunity to begin “paying their way” into American society through gainful employment and self-sufficiency.

“They ought to work,” Clinton asserted, emphasizing the importance of migrants entering the workforce, paying taxes, and supporting themselves economically. He noted that many migrants have no desire to rely on welfare assistance.

In addition to addressing the “Right to Shelter Law,” Clinton emphasized the role of immigrants in shoring up the American economy due to the nation’s low birth rate. He suggested that the United States should consider constructing more housing options near the border with Mexico to accommodate migrants, with the support of the Mexican government.

This approach, according to Clinton, would allow individuals to reside near the border while awaiting opportunities to find work and contribute positively to American society.

Clinton also acknowledged the political ramifications of the ongoing immigration crisis, acknowledging that it has been advantageous for Republicans. He attributed this to the inadequacies in the immigration system and a lack of sufficient border facilities.

The former president concluded by addressing the recent political losses suffered by Democrats in New York, attributing them in part to the perceived mishandling of the immigration issue. He stressed the need for his party to adopt a more “commonsense approach” to the challenges posed by migration.

The alignment of views between former President Bill Clinton and Governor Kathy Hochul on the need for changes to the “Right to Shelter Law” highlights the complexities and evolving dynamics surrounding immigration policy in the United States, particularly in major metropolitan areas like New York City.
