The indictment alleges that although Hunter Biden was gifted millions from a friend, he “spent this money on drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes.”

“The Defendant engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed federal taxes he owed for tax years 2016 through 2019,” it reads.

“The Defendant spent approximately $1 million in 2016, $1.4 million in 2017, $1.8 million in 2018, and $600,000 in 2019” the indictment alleges.

The documents argue that none of this financial gifts were used towards “any of his federal individual income tax liabilities for 2016-2019.”

“Notably, in 2020, well after he had regained his sobriety, and when he finally filed his outstanding 2016, 2017, and 2018 Forms 1040” the indictment reads, “the Defendant did not direct any payments toward his tax liabilities for each of those years,” alleges the government.

He also faces felony gun charges in a separate trial.

Hunter’s attorney claims the charges are politically motivated and argues that if his last name were different, the charges would not have been brought.

Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s attorney said, “based on the facts and the law, if Hunter’s last name was anything other than Biden, the charges in Delaware, and now California, would not have been brought.”

U.S. Attorney Weiss, said, “Now, after five years of investigating with no new evidence – and two years after Hunter paid his taxes in full – the U.S. Attorney has piled on nine new charges when he had agreed just months ago to resolve this matter with a pair of misdemeanors.”

The indictment describes that Hunter Biden, “had Personal Friend pay over $1.2 million to third parties for the Defendant’s benefit from January through October 15, 2020” without making payments towards his debts.
