US Attorney David Weiss of Delaware is reportedly close to making a decision regarding the case involving Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. According to a report from Fox News, he is considering filing multiple charges against him, including two felony counts and two misdemeanors. The investigation regarding the younger Biden started in 2018.
During the week of April 14, Weiss met with the attorneys for Hunter at the Justice Department's headquarters in Washington. These meetings are usually conducted when the investigation is about to conclude. Defense attorneys make a final plea to avoid any potential charges.
According to these sources, Weiss may not be able to make a decision before the end of the year. This could lead to further delays in the investigation, which has already been going on for several years now.
An NBC News report released last month revealed that the investigation was initially focused on Biden's alleged foreign business transactions. However, it has since been modified to include other crimes, such as tax evasion and gun violations. It is believed that prosecutors are considering filing multiple charges against the younger Biden. Some of these include two misdemeanors for not filing taxes and one felony count for lying to a federal firearms purchase form.
Due to the investigation's repeated delays, the FBI and IRS have been frustrated by the situation. They believe there is enough evidence to recommend charges against Biden. However, the situation has raised concerns about the Justice Department's involvement. An IRS whistleblower claimed that the department gave preferential treatment to Biden.

Despite the Attorney General's previous statements about not interfering with the investigation, he reportedly now disputes this claim.
The outcome of the Hunter Biden case could have a major impact on the presidential aspirations of his father. The conservative base is keeping its fingers crossed, but it is still to be seen which side will prevail.
