Hunter Biden expected to plead guilty in criminal tax case

September 10, 2023

— Hunter Biden, the troubled second son of the president, is expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of failing to pay his taxes at the federal courthouse in Delaware on Wednesday morning. It is the first time the Justice Department, which falls under the executive branch, has brought charges against the child of a sitting president. Outlining the charges, Weiss’ office said in a statement that “Hunter Biden received taxable income in excess of $1,500,000 annually in calendar years 2017 and 2018. The Justice Department, however, said he had reached a pretrial agreement that most likely means that, under certain conditions, the case may be wiped from his record. The allegations, which remain uncorroborated, were part of a Justice Department review that Trump’s then-attorney general, William Barr, launched in 2020.
