To say that President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is beleaguered, is an understatement and it looks like his Christmas and probably his New Year’s aren’t going to go well either.

Republicans have, of course, been sniffing around him like hyaenas at a zebra kill, and now they have gotten news that they have almost been hoping for. He’s been hit with nine new tax-related federal charges Thursday, and this includes failure to pay taxes and filing a false tax return.

According to NBC News, the charges were brought by Department of Justice Special Counsel David Weiss, who also indicted the president’s son on gun-related charges in September, per Mediaite.

The case has been given to Judge Mark Scarsi, who was appointed by Trump, so that’s going to be fun, since the judge is likely not predisposition to be fond of the president’ son.

According to U.S. News and World Report, Thursday’s indictment notes Biden “Engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019, from in or about January 2017 through about October 2020, and to evade the assessment of taxes for tax year 2018 when he filed false returns in or about February 2020.”

According to Thursday’s indictment, Biden “engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019, from in or about January 2017 through in or about October 15, 2020, and to evade the assessment of taxes for tax year 2018 when he filed false returns in or about February 2020.”

But that’s not even the half of it. The indictment is also alleging that Hunter Biden “spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle rather than paying his tax bills” and that he “willfully failed to pay his 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 taxes on time, despite having access to funds to pay some or all of these taxes.”

Frankly, he could just sell some of his over-priced artwork to deal with this.

This is a breaking story and we’ll let you know more as soon as we find out.

  1. Ok…he joins tens of thousands in those charges. So, please tell me oh great and powerful Oz…what government position did he hold? Oh…wait….NONE!
    When a spineless squid is threatened, it shoots black ink into the water to cover it’s retreat. The Republicans are a spineless group running for cover.

  2. Oh and Glenn Kirshner, a former federal prosecutor pointed out that this is selective prosecution, as the federal government doesn’t even usually try tax violators…they fine them, they make them pay back taxes, etc. Clearly this IS the weaponization of the government by the Republicans. What the hell do any of us think dictator Trump would do? Review the rise of the nazis in the 30s in Germany. Look at Hungary. Etc.

  3. So I guess we can expect DOJ to file similar charges against mango man soon? How much has former guy bilked the IRS out of over all those years?

    • Ha. My advice is let’s not hold our breath. If we’re forced to overthrow a fascist government under dictator trump…hold your breath when you squeeze the trigger…more accuracy!
