(TargetLiberty.org) – The latest legal cases against Hunter Biden relating to his tax history have been slammed by some MAGA GOP members who have argued that the charges did not go far enough.
On Thursday, a 56-page indictment that was filed in California included charges against Hunter Biden who had allegedly avoided paying at least $1.4 million in federal taxes between 2016 and 2019. President Joe Biden’s son is now facing three felony and six misdemeanor charges which include failure to pay taxes, evasion of assessment, and filing false tax returns.
In the filing, Hunter Biden is accused of having withdrawn from his company millions of dollars that he spent on luxury cars and prostitution, including $388,810 in business-related travel dating back to 2018, which according to the filing were in no way connected to actual business that he did that year. In 2018, Hunter Biden was also accused of having spent over $1.8 million in total, including $383,000 in “payments to women.”
On Friday a White House spokesperson declined to make any comments regarding the case.
These latest charges come after a failed plea deal in July, where Hunter’s lawyers had finalized a deal with prosecutors that was rejected by the court. In that plea deal, Hunter would have pleaded guilty to two tax-related misdemeanors in exchange for having a felony gun charge that was filed against the president’s son dropped.
In October, Hunter Biden ended up pleading not guilty to the charges of having illegally possessed a firearm while he was a drug user.
