While no final decision has been executed on whether to bring charges against President Joe Biden’s son, sources say a probe has intensified in recent months along with discussions among Delaware-based prosecutors, investigators running the probe, and officials at Justice Department headquarters.
According to a source inside the DOJ, Hunter Biden was the target of a grand jury investigation. Suspects are only identified as such when there is an extremely high likelihood they committed a crime.
The federal investigation into Hunter Biden was predicated, in part, by Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) regarding suspicious foreign transactions. Many of these transactions originated from China and Ukraine.
Several of the transactions would have required registration as a foreign agent under numerous federal laws and statutes that require US citizens to declare the source and intent of funds when their occupation is either regular or irregular access to people in elected office.
David Weiss, the US Attorney in Delaware, is leading the probe, which dates back to as early as 2018.
