Hunter Biden May Weasel His Way Out Of Tax Violations

( – In a recent legal development in Los Angeles, Hunter Biden’s legal team has submitted a request to a federal court to dismiss tax-related charges against him. Biden, who entered a plea of not guilty in January to a series of charges related to tax evasion, has been entangled in legal proceedings that accuse him of not fulfilling his tax obligations from 2016 to 2019. His defense posits that the charges are a result of political bias, highlighting concerns regarding the influence of two IRS agents who have since turned whistleblowers.

The legal argument put forth by Biden’s lawyers centers on the assertion that the investigation, initiated in 2018, was heavily influenced by political dynamics. They contend that the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decisions regarding Biden’s charges were swayed by political pressures and self-interest, rather than objective legal standards. This, they argue, infringes upon his rights to due process and equal protection under the law.

Moreover, the defense argues for dismissal based on what they describe as “outrageous government conduct,” particularly highlighting the behavior of the IRS agents assigned to Biden’s case. These agents, who later became whistleblowers, are accused of serious misconduct, including the violation of federal laws and regulations meant to prevent such abuses.

On the other side, prosecutors maintain that the defense’s narrative of political motivation is unfounded, describing it as a constructed conspiracy theory. They argue that the prosecution’s actions are routine and not influenced by external political figures.

The decision on the tax charges will be deliberated in a hearing presided over by Judge Mark Scarsi, appointed by former President Trump, at 4 p.m. EDT on a Wednesday. This tax case in California is one of two legal battles Hunter Biden is facing, the other being in Delaware over gun-related charges, following a collapsed plea agreement last year.
