Biden Says “Nothing Wrong” With Sons Actions, But There Are Still Charges

Hunter Biden has pleaded guilty to two federal misdemeanor charges of failing to pay his taxes in a plea deal with the US Attorney for Delaware. This is despite President Joe Biden’s statement that his son had not committed any wrongdoing.

Hunter has requested probation from US Attorney David Weiss due to tax violations.

The president stated that he trusted him completely. Biden has said he is the smartest guy he knows, and his pride in him affects his presidency.

Hunter Biden’s attorney Chris Clark released a statement saying that two agreements have been made between his client and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware and that the five-year investigation into Hunter has been resolved. 

Regarding his tax crimes, the attorney said Hunter has agreed to take responsibility for two counts of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments on time as part of his plea agreement. The government will file a firearm charge that is not part of the plea deal but will be eligible for pretrial diversion. His attorney said that Hunter believes it is essential to take responsibility for his mistakes while dealing with his addiction and personal challenges. He is motivated to continue progressing and move forward with his life.

The president made remarks regarding his son amidst claims that the Bidens received $10 million in bribes from Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, to prevent an investigation into their questionable practices in Ukraine and gain access to the US energy market.

According to the FBI’s FD-1023 form, which Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene read in June, Biden was involved in a bribery scheme while serving as vice president. According to the form, the Biden family received payment from Burisma, an oil business in Ukraine. Hunter Biden served as a board member of the company. 

Greene stated that Burisma attempted to purchase a U.S. oil and gas company in 2015/2016 based on the suggestion of Hunter Biden and his colleagues.  According to reports, Vice President Joe Biden implied that prosecutor Shokin was corrupt during the meeting.

On the Senate floor, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) stated that the Burisma executive accused of being involved in a bribery scheme with Biden had 17 audio recordings of his conversations as an “insurance policy.”

According to Grassley, the Burisma executive had 17 recorded conversations, with 15 being with Hunter Biden and 2 with Joe Biden.
