Hunter Biden Under Federal Criminal Investigation for China Deals

Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is under federal criminal investigation by the Justice Department for his business deals with China.

The news comes after an admission of the investigation by the Biden-Harris transition team on Wednesday.

Hunter Biden later released a statement:

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs. I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

The investigation involves “multiple financial issues” which include whether Hunter Biden “violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China.”

The investigation could reveal possible conflicts of interest regarding Hunter Biden’s business deals and his relationship with his father.

The transition team also affirmed Joe Biden’s support for his son.

President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger,” the team said.

The investigation was first reported by Sinclair Broadcast Group in October, although the story has largely been denied.

Also in October, reports emerged that the FBI had taken possession of a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden in connection to the investigation.
