The Feds Delayed Action on Hunter Biden's Taxes and Now We Know Why
[Townhall] The investigation into one of Hunter Biden's many sordid affairs was punted until after Election Day — a more politically convenient time for the Biden family — by those investigating the first son, according to a new report published Friday morning.

As Townhall reported on December 9, 2020 — barely a month after Election Day — Joe Biden's presidential transition team revealed that Hunter Biden was under federal investigation over questions about his taxes and unreported income.

"I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs," explained Hunter in a statement.

But according to a report, Hunter could — and perhaps should — have learned about the investigation months earlier at the height of the presidential contest between his father and President Donald Trump.

As early as last summer, POLITICO reports, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware had collected enough evidence and "reached a point at which investigators could have issued grand jury subpoenas and sought search warrants that might have revealed its existence at a time when many of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters were seeking to draw attention to Hunter Biden’s actions."

Investigators and officials "advised Delaware’s U.S. Attorney, David Weiss, to avoid taking any actions that could alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election."

This "dilemma" over whether to move forward with the investigation as normal or delay taking further action to push making the probe public until after the election resulted in U.S. Attorney David Weiss — a Trump appointee — choosing to punt.
