A report from The Washington Post announced that federal agents have gathered “sufficient evidence” to criminally charge Hunter Biden.
Sources say criminal charges are “imminent” for Biden, including crimes related to taxes and the purchase of a firearm.
A federal investigation was launched into the president’s son in 2018 under the direction of Trump-appointed U.S. attorney David Weiss of Delaware.
According to the Post, sources say there are two crimes the investigation is now centered on.
Hunter allegedly failed to report income for many of his dealings overseas, the Post reported.
He also allegedly purchased a firearm while he was regularly smoking crack cocaine.
To purchase a firearm, Biden would have needed to lie about his unlawful use or addiction to illegal substances like crack cocaine.
More on this story via Western Journal:
In order to purchase the gun, Hunter Biden would have had to answer “no” to the standard question: Are you “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”

Lying on the forms for a firearm purchase is a chargeable offense.
Tensions surrounding the case have been building up for some time now.
Back in July, a report from CNN revealed the investigation had reached a “critical juncture.”
At the time, sources told the outlet that authorities were weighing whether or not to charge Hunter Biden with a crime.
If the Post’s Thursday report proves accurate, it appears that a decision has been made.
According to CNN, the breadth of Hunter Biden’s potential wrongdoing is indeed expansive.
Department of Justice officials reportedly examined potential crimes related to money laundering, campaign finance, taxes and foreign lobbying, among others.
