USA: Probably new development in investigations against Hunter Biden

According to media reports, there could be movement in the investigations against the son of US President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden. The 53-year-old's lawyers are expected to meet with the prosecutor's office in the coming week, as several US media reported yesterday evening (local time), citing unnamed sources. According to CNN, Hunter Biden's legal team has contacted the judiciary and asked for information on the current status of the investigation.

The investigations began in 2018. According to the media, they are concentrating on possible tax offenses and allegedly false information in connection with a weapon purchase. So far, no charges have been brought against Hunter Biden - he has denied wrongdoing in the past. The planned meeting does not have to mean that an indictment could be imminent. The investigation is not about US President Joe Biden.

The timing is still delicate. According to reports, Joe Biden may announce in the coming week that he wants to run again in the 2024 presidential election. Biden's son was already a regular target of attacks by then-President Donald Trump during the 2020 election campaign. The Republican raised allegations of corruption against Hunter Biden in connection with foreign deals in Ukraine and China.

The Republicans continue to attack the son of the US President. With their majority in the US House of Representatives won in the midterm elections in November, they are investigating the financial transactions of the 53-year-old. Joe Biden had previously dismissed the attacks against himself and his family as a smear campaign.
