Hunter Biden confirmed yesterday that he is in fact under investigation by the US law firm in Delaware and is investigating his tax matters. For years, the media has maintained a virtual blackout on Hunter Biden stories, although some of us found that a 2019 subpoena indicated an active criminal investigation. Apparently there was no way to “say it nicely” so the media said next to nothing. The new president’s son is now being investigated by his own Justice Department, and many media outlets are still having problems with the journalistic version of the refusal phase in the Kübler-Ross grief phases. The move during the lame ducks era could reflect a desire to iron the investigation before a Justice Department arrives in Biden. It will certainly add a new complication to any already difficult situation with a Special Counsel investigation pending.
Hunter Biden stated, “I take this matter very seriously, but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will show that I have handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”
