A new report claims that Hunter Biden has expressed concerns to family friends that he may have to flee the country if former President Donald Trump wins the 2024 presidential election.
According to Politico’s Jonathan Lemire, two sources recently shared that President Joe Biden’s son has informed friends of the Biden family that he anticipates receiving additional scrutiny by Republicans during the 2024 presidential election cycle. Additionally, the president’s son has indicated that he may be forced to flee the country if Trump wins the election.
Last week, a federal grand jury brought a nine-count indictment against Hunter Biden, including six misdemeanor tax charges and three felony tax charges.
A press release by the Justice Department stated, “According to the indictment, Hunter Biden engaged in a four-year scheme in which he chose not to pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019 and to evade the assessment of taxes for tax year 2018 when he filed false returns.”
The Justice Department’s press release explained that Hunter Biden could face a “maximum penalty” of up to 17 years in prison if he is convicted on the latest charges.
According to Breitbart, Hunter Biden also faces up to 25 years in prison if he is convicted on the gun charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss.
During a recent podcast video released on YouTube, Hunter Biden argued that Republicans, particularly members of the House Oversight Committee who have been investigating the connection between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s business dealings, are attempting to use him to “destroy” Joe Biden’s presidency.
“What they’re trying to do is they’re trying to kill me, knowing that it will be a pain greater than my father could be able to handle — and so therefore destroying a presidency in that way,” Hunter Biden stated.
Politico reported that sources close to the president have noted that Biden is very “worried” about the potential for his son to revert back to his previous lifestyle of addition due to the pressures of his current legal situation and the upcoming presidential campaign.
“You can see it in his eyes, and you can see his shoulders slump,” an anonymous source told Politico. “He’s so worried about Hunter. And we’re worried it could consume him.”
