Hunter Biden filed eight separate motions to have the tax case against him thrown out.

They were all denied.

The Hill reported:

A federal judge in California ruled against Hunter Biden’s attempt to toss out his tax charges on Monday, letting the criminal case against the president’s son move forward.

The younger Biden faces three felony charges and six misdemeanor charges in connection to tax evasion, filing a false return and failing to pay taxes between 2016 and 2019. His attorneys argued last month that the case was politically motivated and tainted by two IRS agents who later became whistleblowers.

He filed eight separate motions to dismiss the charges, citing different legal rationale for each, all of which were denied.

U.S. District Judge Mark Scarsi said that the case was not political.

Breitbart reported:

U.S. District Judge Mark Scarsi determined the case was not political, sidelining Biden’s main argument by noting Biden’s attorneys did not provide evidence for the claim.

“The motion is remarkable in that it fails to include a single declaration, exhibit, or request for judicial notice,” he wrote. “Instead, Defendant cites portions of various Internet news sources, social media posts, and legal blogs. These citations, however, are not evidence.”

Scarsi added the sources, mostly media reports about the case, “contain multiple levels of hearsay.”

The Hill report sets out the judge similarly threw out Biden’s claim of selective and vindictive prosecution.
