President Biden’s son Hunter Biden was indicted in California Thursday on a litany of tax charges, according to documents made public.
According to the indictment, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the younger Biden engaged in a four-year scheme to not pay at least $1.4 million in federal taxes between 2016 and 2019.
The indictment says Biden spent millions on an “extravagant lifestyle” – including membership to sex clubs and more than $188,000 on adult entertainment – rather than paying his taxes.
Special Counsel David Weiss has been using a federal grand jury in Los Angeles to gather evidence of possible criminal tax charges against Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty in October to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware after being charged out of Weiss’ years-long investigation.
Fox News Digital has reached out to Hunter Biden’s legal team for comment. A spokesperson for Special Counsel Weiss declined to comment.
Thursday’s development comes ahead of an expected vote from House Republican leaders next week on a measure that would formally initiate an impeachment inquiry into President Biden over possible ties to his son’s business dealings.
Earlier this week, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., released subpoenaed bank records showing an entity owned by Hunter Biden had made “direct monthly payments to Joe Biden.”
The White House has repeatedly said that President Biden did nothing wrong and had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings.
House Republicans, meanwhile, have warned the younger Biden they would move to hold him in contempt of Congress if he didn’t appear for a closed-door deposition on Dec. 13.
Hunter Biden has insisted he would only testify to the House if it’s in public because information from closed-door testimonies is selectively leaked and used to “manipulate, even history, the facts and misinform the American public.”
