Prosecutors to decide if they want to charge the US president’s son for tax and firearm crimes

Federal agents who have been investigating US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter have enough evidence to charge him with crimes related to taxes and a gun purchase, but the decision is up to a career prosecutor in Delaware, the Washington Post reported on Thursday citing sources. 

“no” to the question about being a drug user or addict. In his 2021 memoir 'Beautiful Things,' the president’s son revealed that he had in fact been using crack cocaine and other drugs at the time.

Hunter’s attorney Chris Clark told the paper that leaking about the case itself is a federal felony and that he “had no contact whatsoever with any federal investigative agent.”

“It is regrettable that law enforcement agents appear to be violating the law to prejudice a case against a person who is a target simply because of his family name,” said Clark.
