Hunter Biden to plead guilty in minor tax, gun case

Washington, Jun 20 (Prensa Latina) Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has reached a plea agreement in which he is expected to plead guilty to two federal misdemeanors counts of failing to pay his taxes, according to NBC News.

The Trump-appointed US Attorney for Delaware David Weiss reached a plea deal with Hunter Biden and, according to NBC News, President´s son will also face a separate felony gun possession charge that will likely be dismissed if he meets certain conditions.

Two sources familiar with the deal told NBC News that it includes a provision in which the US attorney has agreed to recommend probation for Hunter Biden for his tax violations.

Legal experts have also said that the tax and gun charges will most likely not result in any jail time for President Joe Biden’s son.

The decision by U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was nominated by former President Donald Trump in 2018, indicates an end to the sweeping five-year probe by federal prosecutors, FBI agents and IRS officials into Hunter Biden´s conduct.

Chris Clark, attorney for Hunter Biden, told NBC News in a statement: “With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the Unites States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved.”

“Hunter will take responsibility for two instances of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments when due pursuant to a plea agreement. A firearm charge, which will be subject to a pretrial diversion agreement and will not be the subject of the plea agreement, will also be filed by the Government. I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life. He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”

A White House spokesperson said, “The President and First Lady love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life. We will have no further comment.”

Former President Donald Trump, who faces criminal charges for his alleged mishandling of classified documents, criticized the agreement in a post on his website Truth Social.

“The corrupt Biden DOJ just cleared up hundreds of years of criminal liability by giving Hunter Biden a mere ‘traffic ticket.’ Our system is BROKEN,” Trump wrote.
