"Between 2016-19, he paid over $188,000 on "adult entertainment" and over $683,000 on "payments - various women", according to the charge sheet."

That's my boy!

He just needs to turn Republican and all will be forgiven.

Yeah, there is (unfortunately) that aspect to this.

I don't remember Roger Stone ever being criminally charged for the same tax evasion crimes... Odd that...

They can't get at Joe but they are going to destroy Hunter. That will teach Joe to humiliate Trumpy in an election.

The religious CON's should treat Joe better. After all, isn't he sacrificing his own son... or some such crap?

As I understand it, the main witnesses are still the same "whistleblowers" that were laughed out of House Hearings a few months ago.

Tell me if that's not the case.

Hunter Biden lawyer accuses prosecutors of bowing to Republican pressure'

Abbe Lowell says if client's last name was anything other than Biden, the charges would not have been been brought'

In his statement, Biden's attorney said Weiss, who was nominated to his job in Delaware by Donald Trump and made special counsel by the current attorney general, Merrick Garland, had "bowed to Republican pressure to file unprecedented and unconstitutional gun charges to renege on a non-prosecution resolution".

"Now, after five years of investigating with no new evidence " and two years after Hunter paid his taxes in full " the US attorney has piled on nine new charges when he had agreed just months ago to resolve this matter with a pair of misdemeanors."

The charges come after two IRS whistleblowers told Republican lawmakers that the five-year investigation into Hunter Biden's affairs had been slow-rolled and mismanaged."

If he actually is guilty, and I suspect he probably guilty of some charges, then he should be punished. This should not be controversial. What is controversial is the House GOP trying to play political football with this private citizen's pending criminal cases.

"the same "whistleblowers" that were laughed out of House Hearings a few months ago."

As I recall, the former IRS guy was very upset the IRS powers-that-be DISAGREED with his urge to fully prosecute, based on their investigation.

And how often do you disagree on that issue? asked a Congressman.

"About 90% of the time", was the answer.

"If he actually is guilty, and I suspect he probably guilty of some charges, then he should be punished."

Agreed.

That said, the number of my clients who didn't file, then did (which are numerous) and paid the taxes and all fines, interest, and penalties...

...and THEN got sent to jail was...

...well, let me add all these numbers...carry the two...that comes out to:

ZERO clients.

Over a 35-year period.

Everybody knows, and I mean EVERYBODY, if it was Donnie Jr, Trump would've complained about the horrible, horrible prosecutor and then pardoned Junior.

So ... it turns out that the Judge appointed to Hunter's case is a Trump Appointee and a member of the Federalist Society.

Hunter should pull a MAGA Mike and say God told him to stop paying his taxes.

Hunter is just trying protect himself from the promised terrorism of a potential dictator Trumpy.

Take note how Joe (the lying scheming senile incompetent old man pedophile and pervert) Biden to the MSM and honest law abiding American citizens in whispering condescending tones perpetual huckster wanted to add 80K IRS agents" to entrap you. Not him.

Pay your fair share Biden says. Dems now want to wipe their hands of the Biden/Obama bigoted political trash. Their policies have destroyed our once cohesive inteligent compassionate nation by subsidizing unknown foreign invaders who murder millions of our citizens by opening our borders to Dem criminal invaders. Nothing this trash ever says is real and honest. When their lips move they are lying. Never forget that DEMOCRATS did it to your family and community.

Hunter banging your mom isn't a capital offense.

It's a crime against nature but nothing to kill him over.
