A top CNN legal analyst Elie Honig said live on air that the son of President Biden, Hunter Biden, could be indicted by the U.S. Government proceeding an investigation into his foreign business dealings.
- What CNN said: “This is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes … We are seeing federal prosecutors in Delaware do exactly what you would expect to see federal prosecutors do in this situation,” said legal analyst Elie Honig on Wednesday. “There is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges,” Honig said. “Of course, then we’d be in unprecedented political territory — not legal territory but a situation of having potentially the Department of Justice prosecuting and trying to imprison the son of the president.”
- Setting the stage: calls for investigations into Hunter Biden’s notorious laptop and foreign business affairs have escalated in recent weeks. Congressman Matt Gaetz officially entered the laptop in to the congressional record on Tuesday. Former President Trump also called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to release any information the Russian government may have on Hunter Biden. “Why did the mayor of Moscow’s wife give the Bidens, both of them, $3.5 million dollars? That’s a lot of money,” said Trump. “I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it.”
- Mainstream media outlets are just now beginning to cover the investigation of Hunter Biden after remaining silent on matter throughout the duration of the 2020 presidential campaign.
