Experts believe President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, could be headed to prison for not registering as a foreign agent when doing business deals overseas. Hunter’s overseas dealings are part of a Justice Department investigation that has reportedly reached a “critical stage.”

The younger Biden apparently did register as a lobbyist for domestic interests, but failed to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The New York Post reports:

The inquiry began as a tax probe in 2018 but has expanded considerably since a series of New York Post exposes showed how Hunter Biden’s private business interests became commingled with his father’s public career.

The revelations were contained on a laptop abandoned by Hunter Biden at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019.

The probe now reportedly includes potential violations of foreign lobbying laws and money laundering. But insiders say the first son could receive a “generous” plea agreement.” House Republicans have vowed their own investigation should they retake the majority in the upcoming midterm elections.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley said “recent disclosures of additional foreign contacts has only strengthened what was already a strong case” against Hunter.

“Indeed, in the last few weeks, the compelling basis for a FARA charge has becomes unassailable and undeniable,” Turley said.

The Post reports “Hunter reportedly met with the Crown Prince of Yugoslavia and his wife in 2015, and the couple apparently asked him to approach his father with a request for money to help fix up their palace located in Belgrade.”

“If Hunter relayed the request for US government assistance then that would be a FARA registrable event,” Craig Engle, a FARA expert who leads the political law practice at Arent Fox Schiff, stated.

In addition, Biden could reportedly face charges regarding tax violations and lying about illegally buying a firearm.

Breitbart News reported Wednesday:

The probe, which has been ongoing for years and debated for months among Justice Department officials, also centers on the Biden family’s foreign business schemes while Joe Biden was vice president. During those years, Hunter routinely met with Joe Biden about 30 times at either the White House or the vice president’s residences at the Naval Observatory, Hunter’s laptop from hell revealed.
