According to the Post, agents decided several months ago that they had enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase.

Hunter Biden answered "no" when asked if he was using narcotics, despite his own admission in a book that he was smoking crack cocaine.

According to the Post, the investigation centered on whether Hunter Biden did not declare income from certain business ventures, including some conducted abroad.

The outlet reported that David Weiss, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, still has to decide whether to charge the president's son.

Chris Clark, Hunter Biden's attorney, told the Post that it is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a grand jury investigation.

He told the outlet that any information on the case coming from an agent is biased, one-sided, and inaccurate, and that law enforcement agents seem to be violating the law.

According to the Post, few people face charges for false statements related to gun purchases. The outlet cited Justice Department records from the year Hunter Biden purchased a handgun, which showed the department filed charges for more than 300 cases for lying on gun forms, out of 478 total case referrals to the agency.


The president's son has been the subject of a number of allegations by Trump and others. The New York Post reported about a cache of data from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden that was left at a computer repair shop. The laptop was taken away by the FBI after the computer repair shop told them about it. The story about the laptop was amplified by many conservative outlets and claimed the cache of evidence from the computer implicated Hunter and other members of the Biden family in several scandals. Nothing from the laptop has revealed illegal or unethical behavior by Joe Biden as vice president with regard to his son's time as a director for Burisma, a Ukraine-based natural gas company. The contents of Hunter Biden's laptop are not known at this time.

Key Background

Hunter Biden's financial and business dealings in foreign countries were the focus of the Justice Department's investigation. CNN reported in July that investigators looked at whether Hunter Biden violated foreign lobbying laws, campaign finance and tax laws, as well as federal firearm laws, before focusing on tax and gun-related charges. Questions have been raised about whether Hunter Biden paid taxes for his work abroad. After law enforcement agents asked to interview him, Hunter Biden said he was confident that a professional and objective review of these matters would show that he handled his affairs legally and appropriately. According to the Post, Senate Republicans have been pushing for the White House to appoint a special counsel to take control of the criminal investigation to make sure it is free from political influence.
