Hunter Biden Dealt MAJOR Blow In Federal Tax Case - 'The Motion Is Remarkable'

On Monday, a federal judge in California denied Hunter Biden's attempt to have his federal tax case thrown out after the president's son was charged by the Department of Justice with three felonies and six misdemeanor charges related to various tax crimes. The lawyers for the 54-year-old Biden filed eight separate motions to dismiss the case. However, Judge Mark Scarsi denied every one of them.

Hunter, who is facing charges of tax evasion, filing a false tax return, and failing to pay taxes between 2016 and 2019, attempted to argue that the case against him was politically motivated. Hunter's attorneys also argued that the two IRS whistleblowers, Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, who exposed the lack of action in the IRS's investigation into Hunter's taxes, tainted the DOJ's case.

In his ruling, Judge Mark Scarsi eviscerated Hunter's attorneys' claims about there being a political motivation behind the charges, writing, "The motion is remarkable in that it fails to include a single declaration, exhibit, or request for judicial notice. Instead, Defendant cites portions of various Internet news sources, social media posts, and legal blogs. These citations, however, are not evidence."

According to The Hill, the judge added that there was no evidence of the prosecution being selective or vindictive, writing, "Defendant fails to present a reasonable inference, let alone clear evidence, of discriminatory effect and discriminatory purpose. Accordingly, the selective prosecution claim fails."

While Hunter Biden failed to get the case brought against him dismissed, he has taken legal action against the IRS in response to the IRS whistleblowers' testimony to the House Oversight Committee last year. The lawsuit alleges that the agency, notably claiming that whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler have been targeting Hunter through various appearances in the media.

In addition to the multiple tax charges brought against him, the president's son is also facing three federal gun charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss. Hunter was indicted on three counts of making false statements on a federal gun form in 2018. Hunter claimed that he was not addicted to narcotics at the time despite evidence to the contrary. Hunter, who pleaded not guilty, could face up to ten years in prison for the gun charges.

Hunter Biden's flaunting of the law is finally catching up to him. The various felony charges brought against him could lead to years in federal prison, and as the case unfolds against him, President Biden will be forced to make a decision to attempt to defend his son and even pardon him if he so chooses.
