Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy explained Wednesday that President Joe Biden should be concerned about the investigation into his son, Hunter Biden.

What is the background?

Last week, the Washington Post reported that federal prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to bring federal criminal charges against Hunter Biden.

Specifically, prosecutors would charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes related to his business dealings and with a gun charge for allegedly lying on a federal form when he purchased a firearm while allegedly using illegal drugs.

What did McCarthy say?

Speaking on Fox News, McCarthy said President Biden “should be worried” about the investigation and claimed the bigger implications of the case are being “swept under the rug.”

“[President Biden] should be worried in terms of the investigation,” McCarthy said.

“I think the talk that we are hearing now about the possibility of a disposition of the case with tax charges and maybe the full statement that you refer to could be a choreographed event, where what gets swept under the rug is the thing that is of consequence to the country,” he explained, “which is the fact that foreign regimes, some of them hostile to the United States, such as China, poured millions of dollars, millions into the coffers of the Biden family.”

In fact, McCarthy called it a “mistake” to frame the investigation around Hunter Biden only.

That framing obscures the “fact that these regimes paid millions and millions of dollars into the Biden family and the fact that the president himself is implicated in at least one of those transactions,” McCarthy said.

So what happens from here?

McCarthy predicted Hunter Biden will eventually plead guilty to “trivial counts,” and federal prosecutors will allow it to happen when most Americans aren’t looking — like on Christmas Eve.

But what if Republicans retake control of the House or Senate? Then things may get interesting.

“[I]f the Republicans retake at least one house of the Congress, it’s not going to go away because I would expect they are going aggressively investigate the thing that’s of interest in this case, which is not Hunter Biden’s tax matter and it’s not the mishandling of the gun and the false statement that he filed in connection with that— that’s small potatoes,” McCarthy said.

“What matters here is the foreign money that went into the Biden family coffers,” he alleged.

Officially, Hunter Biden has not been charged with any crimes. The government’s investigation still appears to be ongoing.
