In a federal court in Los Angeles, Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden, entered a not guilty plea to tax charges arising from his business dealings. The accusations state that he allegedly spent millions on a lavish lifestyle yet failed to pay $1.4 million in taxes between 2016 and 2019. President Biden is the subject of an impeachment probe as a result of this development. If found guilty, Hunter Biden, 53, could spend up to 17 years behind bars. His attorney argues that despite having paid his overdue taxes, he is still being looked into due to his well-known last name.

Criminal Accusations and Potential Consequences

Hunter Biden, facing three felonies and six misdemeanor charges related to unpaid taxes, is accused of diverting funds towards an extravagant lifestyle, including expenditures on drugs, escorts, and high-end items. The charges, if proven, carry the potential for a 17-year prison sentence. Biden’s legal team asserts that he has already paid his back taxes and suggests that the charges are politically motivated, linked to his prominent family background.

Apart from the tax charges, Hunter Biden has pleaded not guilty in a separate federal case in Delaware, where he faces charges of lying about illegal drug use when purchasing a gun. This case could result in a maximum sentence of 10 years if convicted. Both cases were initiated by federal prosecutor David Weiss, who has been investigating Hunter Biden since 2019, and the Justice Department has confirmed that the inquiry is ongoing.

US House Republicans are pushing for contempt of Congress charges against Hunter Biden for refusing to testify in the impeachment inquiry into his father. While Hunter Biden has offered to testify publicly, Republican investigators are focused on his business dealings in Ukraine and China. Despite highlighting concerns about potential political motivations, a Reuters/Ipsos poll indicates that a significant portion of US adults believe Hunter Biden’s prosecution is politically motivated.
