Prosecutors allege that the expenditures covered "drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes." The charges, spanning the years 2016 to 2019, coincide with a period where Biden has acknowledged battling alcohol and crack cocaine addiction.

The indictment further discloses that Biden evaded a total of $1.4 million in taxes, potentially leading to a 17-year prison sentence if convicted. The charges involve three felony counts and six misdemeanors, stemming from the willful evasion of tax payments.

Biden's attorney, Abbe Lowell, contends that his client has settled his tax debts and is now sober. Lowell criticizes the charges, suggesting that if Hunter's last name were different, the legal actions might not have been pursued. He emphasizes the lack of new evidence after a five-year investigation and asserts that the charges in California and Delaware were piled on despite a previous agreement for a lesser plea deal.

The indictment sheds light on Biden's complex financial dealings, with substantial income flowing from his company, Owasco, PC, and other ventures like Skaneateles and relationships with businesses in Hong Kong and China. The intricate web of financial transactions also includes Biden's involvement with Burisma Holdings Limited, where he received a significant annual salary starting at $1 million in 2014.
