Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, is reportedly considering leaving the country if former President Donald Trump is reelected in 2024, according to sources close to him. Hunter Biden is currently facing serious charges, including a nine-count indictment for felony tax evasion in California and felony gun charges in Delaware. The outcome of the 2024 presidential election may determine whether he stays in the U.S. to face these charges or attempts to escape prosecution.

Politico reported that Hunter Biden is aware that he is under intense political scrutiny and has expressed concerns to friends and family about the possibility of having to flee the country if Trump were to win another term. However, it’s worth noting that fleeing the U.S. to evade prosecution would be a federal crime.
The federal indictment against Hunter Biden includes charges of felony tax evasion and filing false tax returns, as well as six misdemeanor charges of failure to pay taxes. If convicted, he could face up to 17 years in prison. Additionally, he is also facing gun charges related to a handgun purchase he made in Delaware in 2018 while he was using illegal drugs.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles are taking a toll on his father, President Joe Biden, according to Politico. The president may also face additional challenges if his son is held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify before the House Oversight Committee regarding an alleged influence-peddling scheme. Hunter Biden expressed his concerns about the impact of his legal troubles on his father in a recent podcast, suggesting that his enemies are trying to sabotage the presidency.
Overall, the possibility of Hunter Biden fleeing the country if Trump is reelected remains uncertain, and any decision to leave would have significant legal consequences. It’s clear that these legal issues are putting pressure on President Joe Biden and his administration, who may face heightened scrutiny during the 2024 campaign.
