Will the IRS Come After Joe Biden For Tax Fraud?

AMAC Exclusive

President Biden seemingly can’t go more than a few weeks without finding himself in a new moral and ethical quandary thanks to the professional schemes of his son, Hunter. But while previous scandals have revolved around Hunter’s drug use, potential illegal lobbying, business dealings with the Ukraine and business dealings with China, the latest round of revelations could directly implicate President Biden by raising new questions about if Joe Biden violated federal tax law – as well as the United States Constitution – by not reporting income received from or through Hunter Biden’s business dealings.

According to recent reporting from the New York Post, Hunter Biden was allegedly paying thousands of dollars’ worth of bills for his father while Joe was serving as Vice President. A series of emails dating back to 2010 expose Hunter Biden’s growing frustration with having to make payments for “JRB,” presumably Joseph Robinette Biden. The digital discussions were between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at Rosemont Seneca.

Additionally, text messages from 2019 between Hunter and his daughter, Naomi, found on the now-infamous Hunter Biden laptop seem to reveal the extent to which Hunter was footing bills for the entire Biden family. He wrote:

“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike pop [Joe] I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

At the time he sent these messages, Hunter was employed by Burisma Holdings, one of the largest gas producers in Ukraine, which has faced numerous charges of corruption. Hunter was compensated $83,333 a month to serve on the company’s board, despite having no experience in the natural gas industry. Two months before Biden left office, Hunter’s salary was cut in half to $41,500.

Many of the expenses Hunter paid on behalf of Joe were for home repairs, most notably $2,600 for a stone wall and a recurring $190 monthly phone bill charge with AT&T. While screenshots of texts and emails appear to confirm these specific payments, it seems likely that these examples are only a small fraction of a much larger pattern of potentially improper payments Hunter made for Joe while he was serving as Vice President.

President Biden has maintained that there has never been a conflict of interest regarding his son’s professional career and consulting while Joe was in office. However, if Hunter did pay a significant portion of Joe’s expenses with money earned from lobbying for foreign corporations, as these emails suggest, and Joe did not report these gifts as income, he likely violated U.S. tax law.

The section of the U.S. Tax Code dealing with gifts, commonly known as the “Gift Tax,” directly limits the “transfer of property by one individual to another while receiving nothing, or less than full value, in return.” Up to $15,000 may be transferred without incurring taxes. Yet the aforementioned emails suggest Hunter could have “gifted” far more than this to support his family’s lifestyle. More investigation is required but, if accurate, this would constitute tax fraud.

Additionally, it is possible that Biden’s failure to report these gifts deriving from foreign sources violated the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which states: 

No Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

While no evidence so far shows Joe Biden personally accepted foreign gifts as Vice President, the possibility of him receiving benefits through his son’s business dealings raises massive red flags for Joe, Hunter, and anyone else in the First Family involved in such activity.

Even the Washington Post has reported that Hunter Biden understood his role as being the family’s breadwinner. In a widely cited piece from last October, columnist David Ignatius quoted Hunter telling a confidante that “my mom and dad don’t have money…. I have to make money for the family.”

Both Hunter and the Biden White House have also faced scrutiny recently after it was reported that Hunter had reached a deal with a New York-based art gallery owner to sell his paintings for as much as $500,000. Hunter, who is not a professionally trained artist, took up painting as part of his rehab from drug and alcohol addiction.

According to reporting from the Washington Post, citing several art critics, “Hunter Biden’s art would never be priced so high if he had a different last name.” Even CNN, a leading Hunter Biden defender, published an interview suggesting that Biden’s work is thoroughly unimpressive.

The White House has argued that Hunter’s newfound identity as a professional artist does not violate ethics requirements because of an agreement with the gallery owner whereby buyers remain anonymous to Hunter. However, Hunter is still set to meet with prospective buyers at “art shows” in New York and Los Angeles, with no apparent way to enforce the agreed-upon anonymity standards set by the White House.

The announcement earned bipartisan rebukes, with Walter Shaub, the former Office of Government Ethics director under Obama, blasting the White House for permitting the sales to move forward, stating “congratulations, you’ve just outsourced government ethics to a high-end art dealer.” After four years of the mainstream media falsely accusing the Trump family of profiting off the Presidency, many are asking if Hunter’s art career is simply a guise to allow Hunter to receive huge sums of money from individuals or groups – including foreign governments – who may want access to the President.

At a time when the Trump Organization is being aggressively investigated for even the perception of potential tax malfeasance, the Biden family’s alleged wrongdoing is facing far less scrutiny from the media and federal investigators. Such a double standard casts fresh doubt on Joe Biden’s claims denying any impropriety and warrants further investigation into the nature of Hunter and Joe’s financial relationship.

How long has judicial watch been investigating the corruption and treason in the “swamp”? (clintons, bidens) has anything been prosecuted yet? Looks to me like they will just keep collecting donations and drag this alleged investigation till clintons have been three days in hell before they do anything, but , of course they are all lawyers, that is what they do, control and manipulate the “system” to protect thier fellow lawyers, as everyone in the “swamp” is a lawyer.

What you have said is all too true, a prime example is New York Governor Andrew Killer Como and his various crimes, with the nursing home deaths as one of his most heinous atrocities.

For decades the socialist/dem administrations have been filling government agencies with thier mindless drones, people that support and partisipate in the criminal activities, they have know about all the evidence of criminal activity in the “swamp” since before the elections started, endless investigations, “special counsels”, decades of begging for funds to help thier investigations and what is the result? I have not seen one conviction in spite of mountains of evidence, the swamp rules and the swamp critters are all lawyers, so do not expect any “justice” just business as usual.

The IRS coming after Biden? Is that the same as the Injustice department coming after Hilary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo, and the rest of the Democrat Crime family?

Biden is a corrupt, stupid, lying hypocrite who accomplished nothing as a senator and grifted his way through 8 years as VP. Now obviously non compos mentis, he is being handled and scripted by the Leftist Globalist attached to Obama and has abused his office/power & done more impeachable things in his first 6 months than Trump ever could have done, yet Biden will go along untouched, unblemished, protected by the Democrat establishment and their collaborators, the MSM. HIs son will go on creating laughable “art” & using his father to do criminal deals and we voters are stuck with it at least for another year and a half during which untold damage will be done to our country, maybe irreversible for at least a generation.

This is only one of a multitude of things the justice department and IRS should be coming after the Biden crime family for. Lets also add in aiding and abetting human trafficking and drug smuggling along our southern border, human trafficking within the united states, and failure to enforce existing laws. But it won’t happen because those spineless departments are extensions of the Democrat party and have become weaponized only against conservatives. Very sad.

I keep thinking how fortunate we are that Garland was stopped from becoming a justice on SCOTUS. In these short months he’s proven himself to be part of the Deep State corruption, a continuation of Democrat oppression, all bought and paid for, nicely wrapped up in pretty titles to do their bidding. As AG he won’t do a thing to stop Biden and cohorts’ self-interested tyranny.

This is an exercise in futility: not reporting income received from or through PAY TO PLAY business dealings…SOMETHING THE CLINTON’S, OBAMA’S AND BIDEN’S WERE MASTERS AT.

Despite evidence, NONE have EVER been investigated for this. Close, HELLary’s destruction of government property and an illegal covert server to hide the nefarious activities, never got an actual invstigation, it was “downgraded by sycophant, corrupt agencie traitors to a “matter” and then, dspite expletive Comey actually naming crimes, was dropped! And the corrupted DOJ/IRS/ABCXYZ Demmunist/Globalist run agency traitor’s will make this disappearr as well.

All these corrupt politicians need to hang or face a firing squad for their crimes !! And I have it on good authority that will happen. You can’t run roughshod over the American People anymore. Your crimes for child sacrifice and trafficking of children is a one way ticket to hell. Not to mention, stealing an election. This too will prove your treason. Also The World is waking up to your medical tyranny Covid Scam. The Communist Democrat Party, along with your Rino counterparts will spend time in Gitmo awaiting your execution. Right along side the rest of the Cabal !!! No longer will your boot of oppression be on our necks. No longer will you bask in opulence, while the American People and the World suffer your wrath. Yes true Freedom is just around the corner. The World and her people will rejoice when all of you are a distant memory !! Amen and Amen.
