WASHINGTON — Hunter Biden’s legal team met with prosecutors at the Justice Department on Wednesday to discuss potential charges against Biden, the president’s son, in the Delaware criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the matter said.
The meeting included representation from the U. S. attorney’s office in Delaware and the Justice Department, the sources said.
The Justice Department and the Delaware U. S. attorney’s office declined to comment. Hunter Biden’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
NBC News has reported that federal prosecutors are considering charging the younger Biden with two misdemeanor counts of failure to file taxes, a felony count of tax evasion related to a business expense for a year of taxes and a potential felony gun charge related to a firearms purchase.
U. S. Attorney David Weiss, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump and retained by President Joe Biden’s administration, will decide whether to file charges.
