The federal investigation into Hunter Biden has reached a “critical moment” and investigators are considering whether to charge the president’s son, according to a report Wednesday evening.
The Delaware Department of Justice’s investigation has intensified in recent weeks over whether or not to sue for tax violations or making false statements about buying a gun, sources said. CNN.
There are also concerns about DOJ guidelines that suggest avoiding updates in major, politically sensitive cases so close to the election.
The report states that no decision has been made yet, with just over four months until the midterms and the Democrats and White House plunge into the polls.
It increases the pressure on the Biden family, with Republicans already saying Hunter will be a target of their congressional investigations if they retake the House.
The GOP is looking for answers as to whether the president was aware of his son’s foreign business dealings, even though he has continually denied knowing anything about it.
Hunter was not allowed to buy a gun at the time because of his well-documented struggle with drug addiction.

David Weiss, the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, is leading the investigation, which dates back to 2018. President Biden kept pushing after Trump left office to continue the investigation.
Hunter has not been charged with any crimes and has denied criminal wrongdoing.
The report also stated that the president is not being investigated as part of the investigation into his business activities.
The Criminal Division of the FBI and the IRS are among the agencies involved in moving the investigations and there have also been discussions about whether his past drug abuse could weaken their case. CNN reported.
Hunter could claim he was unaware of his actions because he was high on the drugs.
Earlier this summer, DailyMail.com revealed a 2018 voicemail recording of junior Biden’s hard drive stating that the president was indeed aware of the transactions.
Joe called Hunter on December 12, 2018, saying he wanted to speak to him after reading a New York Times story about Hunter’s dealings with Chinese oil giant CEFC.
Files previously revealed by DailyMail.com on Hunter’s abandoned laptop show that he struck a multimillion-dollar deal with the Chinese company after touting his family ties.
The Times story from 2018 pointed out that CEFC chairman Ye Jianming had been arrested in China and his US chief lieutenant Patrick Ho had been convicted in the US of bribing African officials to help Iran evade oil sanctions.
It revealed that Ye had met Hunter at a Miami hotel in 2017 to talk about “a partnership to invest in US infrastructure and energy deals.”
The Times reported that when Ho was arrested, he called Joe’s brother Jim Biden – who told the paper he believed the call was for Hunter.
The Gray Lady said it was “unclear whether Hunter Biden made business deals with CEFC,” not knowing at the time how deep his connections with his Chinese business partners were.
After seeing the story online, Joe Hunter called and left a voicemail.
“Hey buddy, it’s daddy. It’s 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday evening. If you get the chance, give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” he said.
“I thought the article that appeared online, which will be printed in the Times tomorrow, was good. I think you are clear. And if you get the chance, call me, I love you.’
Majority of Americans believe Joe Biden was aware of Hunter’s foreign business dealings, and 66% follow reports of his laptop ‘closely’, new polls show
Americans are not convinced that President Joe Biden knew nothing about his son Hunter Biden’s foreign affairs, a new poll shows.
Nearly seven in ten voters researched by Rasmussen Reports think the president is at least somewhat acquainted with Hunter’s overseas affairs.
Forty-nine percent of respondents to the poll published Tuesday think it is “highly likely” that Biden knows about his son’s affairs, despite the president’s persistent claims to the contrary.
Another 20 percent of voters on July 14 and 17 say it’s “somewhat likely.”
A combined 22 percent say it is either “not very likely” or “not at all likely” that the president was aware of Hunter Biden’s business dealings abroad.
Ten percent of respondents said they were still not sure what to believe about this.
The poll follows revelations earlier this summer from DailyMail.com of a 2018 voicemail recording of junior Biden’s leaked hard drive, where the president discussed his son’s deal with Chinese oil giant CEFC.
Reports about Hunter are followed by two-thirds — or 66 percent — of likely US voters, with the other third claiming they don’t follow news about the president’s son.
A whopping 69% of voters think President Joe Biden is at least somewhat aware of his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, despite claims to the contrary
