Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, is expected to plead guilty to two federal misdemeanor counts of failing to pay his taxes as part of a plea deal reached with the US Attorney for Delaware.
According to NBC News, court documents filed on Tuesday reveal that the First Son is also facing a separate gun possession charge that could be dismissed if he meets certain conditions.
Chris Clark, attorney for Hunter Biden, told NBC News in a statement, “With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved.
"Hunter will take responsibility for two instances of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments when due pursuant to a plea agreement. A firearm charge, which will be subject to a pretrial diversion agreement and will not be the subject of the plea agreement, will also be filed by the Government. I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life. He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”
Two sources familiar with the agreement told NBC News that the plea deal includes a provision where US Attorney David Weiss has agreed to recommend probation for Biden for the tax violations.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
