Hunter Biden's Taxes Under Federal Investigation

AllSides Summary

Hunter Biden, son of state-certified 2020 presidential election winner Joe Biden, announced his taxes are being investigated by the Delaware U.S. Attorney's Office in a joint statement on the Biden-Harris transition website. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the Justice Department has also been scrutinizing Hunter Biden’s taxes, Chinese business dealings and other financial transactions since 2018. The younger Biden's statement said he did not learn of the investigation until Tuesday. This comes after political opponents, including President Donald Trump, criticized Hunter Biden for his dealings with Ukraine and China and accused Joe Biden of profiting off of his son's business deals. The story was widely covered by outlets across the spectrum. Coverage from the right tended to highlight the Biden family's financial and tax history; some center-rated outlets pointed out that Biden's pick for attorney general could oversee the investigation into his son if it continues past Jan. 20. Some reports from left-rated sources focused on the Trump campaign's scrutiny of Hunter Biden during the presidential campaign.
