According to sources who spoke to Fox News, officials are weighing possible charges for Hunter Biden, including tax evasion, foreign lobbying, and making false statements; Biden has been under federal investigation since 2018, according to a source familiar with the matter.
From Fox News:
A separate source told Fox News that the federal grand jury looking into Hunter’s business dealings wrapped up its latest term late last month, but said no charges have been filed.
The investigation is being conducted by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a prosecutor appointed by former President Trump.
The source told Fox News Wednesday that Weiss and Justice Department officials were looking into whether to charge Hunter Biden with various tax violations and, more seriously, possible foreign lobbying violations. The source said Hunter Biden could face possible false statements charges.
But the source said no final decision has been made on whether to charge Hunter, and stressed that the investigation is ongoing.
Fox News first reported in December 2020 that Biden was a subject/target of the grand jury investigation, according to a well-placed government source. According to the source, a “target” means that there is a “high probability that person committed a crime,” while a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure” has committed a crime.”

The Rasmussen Reports survey also shows that a whopping 55% of voters are “closely following” reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
It found that 62% of voters believe the president benefited financially from the first son’s business relationships in China, including 44% who say it is “very likely.”
And 69% reject the president’s assertions that he doesn’t talk to his son about business — 49% say the president “very likely” knew and just 22% think he was unaware of his son’s business relationships.
But a majority — 56% — believe Hunter Biden will not be prosecuted.
