Hunter Biden’s tax investigation is accelerating, with prosecutors questioning associates and witnesses about the first son’s foreign business dealings.

The Wall Street Journal reported this on Monday that prosecutors from the US law firm in Delaware are interested in funds the first son received from the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma and how he used that money to pay debts.

A source also told the Journal that in February a person was questioned extensively before the grand jury about Biden’s drug and alcohol use, spending habits and mental state.

A source also told the Journal that in February a person was questioned extensively before the grand jury about Biden’s drug and alcohol use, spending habits and mental state.

That question suggests prosecutors are investigating whether the younger Biden can use his history of addiction as a defense against a potential criminal tax lawsuit.

“It doesn’t necessarily mean an indictment is imminent, but it does indicate that we are trying to close testimony with a view to a possible trial one day,” former federal tax attorney Matt Mueller told the Journal. Mueller is not working on the case.

Sources spoke to the Journal about some lines of interrogation that prosecutors have used when talking to a number of associates and witnesses before the grand jury.

Prosecutors are investigating whether Biden has violated tax or other laws, including laws guiding working as a lobbyist for a foreign government, with his business dealings in Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan.

Prosecutors have specifically targeted payments Biden received from Burisma — which flowed into a company called Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC before being referred to Biden.

Biden was on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019, receiving approximately $50,000 per month.

Former President Donald Trump often spoke of this lucrative setup.

His first accusation revolved around an attempt to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce an investigation into Hunter and Joe Biden over Hunter’s Ukraine-based business dealings.

Trump withheld nearly $400 million in Congress-approved military aid to prod Zelensky into action.

The Journal reported that prosecutors are also interested in how Hunter Biden bought a car with money from Rosemont Seneca.

In April 2014, a business associate from Kazakhstan transferred $142,300 to Rosemont Seneca.

The money came from a Singapore-based company controlled by Kazakhstani banker Kenges Rakishev “For a Car,” the Journal reported. Rakishev has close relations with the leaders of Kazakhstan.

A day after the money was received by Rosemont Seneca, it was transferred to a New Jersey car dealership to purchase a Fisker sports car that Hunter Biden would use on Rosemont Seneca’s behalf, two sources told the Journal.

Hunter Biden later traded the Fisker for a silver Porsche.

The journal could not determine how close the study is to completion.
