Hunter Biden Says He’s Being Investigated for Possible Tax Crimes

By Published on December 10, 2020

Federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, for potential tax crimes, the younger Biden said in a statement Wednesday issued through his father’s presidential transition team.

“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,” Biden said in the statement.

“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 transition team issued a statement saying that 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.”

Hunter Biden, 50, has come under scrutiny over his business dealings in China and Ukraine.

The owner of a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, released documents in September that he said were from a laptop that Biden dropped off at his business in April 2019. A copy of the laptop’s hard drive includes thousands of Biden’s personal and business emails.

A person reached by phone at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware declined comment.
