The son of US President-elect Joe Biden, Hunter, announced on Wednesday that he learned the day before that he was the subject of a federal investigation in the state of Delaware into his tax situation.
I take this very seriously, but have confidence that a professional and objective review will show that I have managed my affairs in a legal and proper manner, including with the assistance of professional tax advisers, has he commented in a press release.
President-elect Biden is extremely proud of his son, who has had to face terrible challenges, including vile personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge strengthened, Joe Biden's transition team said in the same statement. .
Outgoing President Donald Trump during the presidential campaign described the Biden family as a "criminal enterprise, notably pointing to the affairs of Hunter Biden in Ukraine and China when his father was Vice President of Barack Obama (2009-2017) ).
In particular, he accuses Joe Biden of having obtained the dismissal of a Ukrainian prosecutor in order to protect a gas company, Burisma, of which his son was then on the board of directors, from prosecution for corruption.
