Attorney Sam Dewey joined ‘FOX & Friends First’ to discuss the timing of the new criminal charges Hunter Biden faces and what could connect his alleged crimes to his father.
President Biden’s embattled son Hunter Biden is facing a new set of tax-related charges in California.
Hunter Biden is facing nine charges alleging a “four-year scheme” when he did not pay his federal income taxes from January 2017 to October 2020 while also filing false tax reports.
The charges break down to three felonies and six misdemeanors centered around $1.4 million in owed taxes that were since paid.
Special Counsel David Weiss alleged Hunter “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.”
Weiss said that, in “furtherance of that scheme,” the younger Biden “subverted the payroll and tax withholding process of his own company, Owasco, PC by withdrawing millions” from the company “outside of the payroll and tax withholding process that it was designed to perform.”
