Hunter Biden tax fraud
President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden on Wednesday revealed he’s under federal investigation for possible tax fraud.
Biden, 50, disclosed the probe in a statement released by his father’s presidential transition office.
“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,” Hunter Biden said in a 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.”
A statement attributed to “the Biden-Harris Transition” said, “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 Post reported in October that the FBI acquired in December 2019 a computer hard drive abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop, according to documents provided by the shop owner.
Some of the documents from the hard drive appeared to link Joe Biden to Hunter’s business dealings in China and Ukraine.
