Emails, text messages, and photographs and other evidence that prosecutors could use at trial if US president, Joe Biden’s son Hunter, is charged with tax crimes and lying on gun purchase documents, has been released by UK tabloid, DailyMail.
The FBI believes it has enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with failure to declare income from his foreign business deals and a failure to declare he was a drug addict on a gun application, sources told The Washington Post on Thursday.
Agents told the Post they assembled enough evidence for a criminal case against the First Son ‘months ago’ and the decision to charge now lies with federal prosecutors.
The agents claim they have sufficient proof that Hunter failed to declare income from his overseas business dealings to the IRS.
The First Son also wrote on a gun application that he was not a user of illegal drugs, but later admitted in his own memoir that he was a crack addict at the time.
The Bureau has been in possession of revealing emails, furtive text messages, and photographs from Hunter’s abandoned laptop that he never intended to fall into law enforcement’s hands since 2019.
Below are DailyMail’s findings about some of the evidence prosecutors could use in a potential trial.

On October 12, 2018 Hunter bought a .38 caliber handgun from StarQuest Shooters & Survival Supply in Wilmington, Delaware.
The federally required Firearm Transaction Record for the purchase, obtained by DailyMail.com, asks: ‘Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?’
Hunter checked the box: ‘No’
But in his memoir, Beautiful Things, he admitted to his continued ‘full-blown addiction’ at the time – and in doing so, appeared to admit to the felony of lying on the firearm form.
‘I had returned [to the East Coast] that fall of 2018, after my most recent relapse in California, with the hope of getting clean through a new therapy and reconciling with Hallie. Neither happened,’ he wrote in the 2021 autobiography.
He said he would go for regular ketamine therapy sessions as part of his rehab treatment but continued to smoke crack throughout.
‘The therapy’s results were disastrous,’ he wrote. ‘I backslid. I did exactly what I’d come to Massachusetts to stop doing. I’d stay clean for a week, break away from the center to meet a connection I found in Rhode Island, smoke up, then return.
‘One thing I did remarkably well during that time was fool people about whether or not I was using. Between trips up there, I even bought clean urine from a dealer in New York to pass drug tests. READ PAGE 2 BELOW FOR PAPERWORK EVIDENCE
