Hunter Biden Loses Bid to Dismiss Federal Tax Case

The president’s son, Hunter Biden, had his bid to dismiss federal tax charges rejected by a federal court on Monday.

U.S. District Judge Mark Scarsi of Los Angeles rejected the defendant’s claims that prosecutors were pursuing the charges of over $1.4 million in tax avoidance in response to political pressure from Republicans. Mr. Biden’s attorneys also argued that he had immunity from a plea deal he had previously negotiated.

Mr. Biden, 54, in January pleaded not guilty to the three felony and six misdemeanor charges related to his business dealings and for failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes between 2016 and 2019. At the time, he was allegedly spending millions of dollars on drugs, escorts, exotic cars, and other big-ticket items.

During the years in question, Mr. Biden reported making about $7 million from work for Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian firm, and other companies, including the Chinese firm CEFC China Energy.
