It appears that Hunter Biden’s legal troubles could be coming to a head.
CNN reported on Wednesday that Justice Department officials met with attorneys representing the president’s son to discuss the years-long criminal investigation into Hunter’s taxes.
Longtime Hunter Biden attorney Chris Clark, along with several others on Hunter’s ever-expanding legal team, was spotted entering the Department of Justice headquarters in Washington on Wednesday morning.
According to CNN, sources reported that the lawyers met with officials from the DOJ’s tax division and the office of Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, who has been heading up the investigation into Hunter Biden since 2018.
A source familiar with the meeting told CNN that Hunter’s legal team had previously contacted the Justice Department asking to be updated on Weiss’ investigation.
Sources familiar with the investigation out of Delaware said prosecutors are still deciding whether or not to bring charges against Hunter for failing to file taxes (a misdemeanor), felony tax evasion for overreporting expenses, and making a false statement on a gun purchase form.
It is not clear if prosecutors are still considering charging Hunter for failing to register as a foreign agent and money laundering.
Last week, an attorney representing an IRS criminal investigator-turned-whistleblower informed Congress that Hunter was receiving “preferential treatment” from the Biden administration in the investigation. The attorney also alluded that Attorney General Merrick Garland had lied under oath when he testified to Congress about the investigation.
The wayward First Son is also facing a lawsuit from his former lover, Lunden Roberts, who is suing Hunter in Arkansas for child support for their 3-year-old illegitimate daughter Navy.
On Monday, Independence County Circuit Judge Holly Meyer ordered that Hunter must be present at all hearings related to the lawsuit, arguing that his absence is “interfering with the progress of litigation.”
Last weekend, the New York Post reported that Hunter could be living in the White House to avoid being served with legal papers.
