U.S. prosecutors are planning to seek a grand jury indictment against Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, by September 29 for his tax and firearms case.
The announcement comes after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika rejected a plea deal in July that would have resolved the charges.
Hunter Biden’s lawyers argue that the deal is still valid and accuse the prosecution of reneging on it.
The case has become a political flashpoint, with Republicans suggesting the possibility of impeaching President Biden over his son’s actions, which are tied to the President.
The indictment could coincide with the 2024 presidential election, adding another layer of complexity to an already tense political landscape.
