In an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle aired on Friday evening, President Joe Biden argued that his son, Hunter Biden, had committed no wrongdoings. Hunter Biden has faced a multi-year investigation into his business dealings which could soon result in him potentially being charged.
On Wednesday the Washington Post reported that prosecutors were reaching a decision on whether Hunter Biden needed to face charges on either the tax-related or gun-related possible crimes he committed.
Other reports have also shown that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware was also looking into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, and especially into any income he received from being on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, as well as any business operations he had in China.
In October, the Post in a report had stated that there was enough evidence gathered by prosecutors to charge Biden. However, the final decision on whether or not Hunter Biden will be indicted falls with David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware.
Biden in his defense of his son said that he had “faith” that Hunter Biden had committed no wrongdoings. Biden has repeatedly claimed that the Justice Department would be given complete independence in their investigation into his son’s business dealings, however, a whistleblower recently claimed that the Biden administration had been deliberately mishandling the investigation.
In a letter to Congress members last month, an attorney for the whistleblower, who has been identified as an Internal Revenue Service supervisor, has claimed that they have evidence that contradicts the statements made to Congress by a senior appointee.
