CBS News Senior Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge Anticipates “Incredible Legal Exposure” for Hunter Biden in 2024

During a recent appearance on “Face The Nation,” CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge offered insights into the potential legal challenges facing Hunter Biden in the coming year, emphasizing the looming California tax case against the president’s son.

Host Margaret Brennan prompted Herridge to discuss the potential impact of Hunter Biden’s legal troubles on the political landscape in 2024. Herridge forewarned that the upcoming year holds “incredible legal exposure” for Hunter Biden, coinciding with his father’s reelection campaign. The senior investigative reporter particularly highlighted the significance of Hunter Biden’s impending tax charges case in California, stating, “These criminal prosecutions are going to unfold at the same time that his father is running for reelection.”

Drawing attention to the California trial, Herridge stressed the need to closely monitor the proceedings, indicating that the special counsel involved in the case is exploring potential violations. Hunter Biden is scheduled to be arraigned in a California court on tax charges in January. Herridge pointed out that the 56-page indictment serves as a “shot across the bow” by the special counsel, delving into Hunter Biden’s roles as a lawyer, consultant, and lobbyist. The document provides detailed insights into his business transactions involving Ukraine, China, Romania, and other entities. Herridge suggested that this detailed scrutiny indicates a potential investigation into violations of foreign lobbying laws, and perhaps the possibility of a superseding indictment.

Hunter Biden was indicted in early December on nine counts related to alleged failures to pay taxes, amounting to over $1 million over a four-year period. The indictment outlined the president’s son’s alleged gains of more than $7 million in total gross income from foreign business dealings with entities in Ukraine, Romania, and China.

In the California case, Hunter Biden faces three felonies and six misdemeanors related to tax evasion. His trial in Los Angeles is scheduled to commence on January 11, according to the Associated Press. The legal proceedings are poised to unfold against the backdrop of the 2024 political landscape, adding a layer of complexity to the dynamics surrounding the Biden family.
