The fresh allegations include:
- Making false statements during firearm acquisition.
- Providing inaccurate information to federal firearms dealers.
- Possessing firearms despite being an unlawful user of controlled substances.
Hunter Biden has been under investigative scrutiny for years, focusing on both his business dealings and personal affairs. This investigation seemed to be reaching a conclusion in June with a tentative plea agreement. This agreement would have let Hunter confess to two minor tax offenses and enter a program to sidestep a felony gun charge trial.
In related news from the political arena, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy recently declared his intentions to launch an impeachment probe against President Biden. He suggests the president may have been involved in his son’s alleged misdeeds.
