Hunter Biden's tax evasion case will be overseen by judge appointed by Donald Trump

 December 10, 2023

The California tax evasion case of Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, will be overseen by judge Mark Scarsi, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump.

Biden is facing three tax felonies and six misdemeanors and is facing a maximum sentence of 17 years in prison if convicted.

The charges were brought by Special Counsel David Weiss, who claims that Biden was engaged in a four-year scheme to evade taxes.

Weiss claimed in the indictment, "The Defendant engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019, from in or about January 2017 through in or about October 15, 2020, and to evade the assessment of taxes for tax year 2018 when he filed false returns in or about February 2020."

The irony of all this is that President Biden and the Democrat Party talk incessantly of taxing the rich, and yet the son of the president is a millionaire who allegedly engaged in tax evasion.

Furthermore, Biden allegedly used "false business deductions" to reduce his tax obligations. While a lot can change as this case is litigated, things aren't looking good for the first son.
