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!

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
