The Justice Department on Thursday charged Hunter Biden with lying about his drug use when he purchased a handgun in October of 2018, which was during a time when he admittedly was addicted to crack cocaine. The indictment was filed in a federal court in Delaware.
President Joe Biden’s son is also being investigating for corruption involving business dealings, and failure to pay taxes.
A plea deal with the Justice Department fell apart earlier this summer after the judge would not allow Hunter Biden off on the felony gun charge, and after she scolded the Biden team for burying evidence and scamming the court.
That plea deal would have seen the gun charge dropped in exchange for pleading guilty for misdemeanor counts of willfully failing to pay federal income taxes.
