The investigation into the activities of Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden resulted in charges for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), the Internal Revenue Code, and the Gun Control Act.
Initially, Hunter had a plea bargain to avoid prison time and receive minimal consequences, such as allowing Hunter Biden to plead guilty for not paying taxes on income exceeding $1.5 million in 2017 and 2018, receiving probation instead of jail time.
In addition, U.S. Prosecutor David Weiss devised a distinct diversion agreement that granted Hunter Biden immunity from any potential future charges, as well as a provision that effectively expunged a felony firearms violation from his record.
Under the scrutiny of a Delaware magistrate, however, Hunter Biden’s plea agreement with the Department of Justice collapsed in July. The DOJ then asked the judge to reject the plea agreement, which he did on August 17. Prosecutors anticipate that the case will proceed to trial, which will likely take place in Delaware or California.
Now, Hunter has made a change that suggests he is considering financial repercussions. Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen have been residing in a Venice Beach home on a canal for $4.2 million. Reportedly, Hunter Biden rented this property for $20,000 per month.
However, they were not popular tenants. “Hunter and Melissa were horrible tenants. Not only did they stiff the owner for months of rent, they left the house in terrible condition,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“Melissa was rude and entitled. They destroyed the stereo equipment in the home and when someone came to fix it, they were uncooperative. They also left the place dirty,” the source added.
According to the Daily Mail, Joe and Jill Biden have relocated from their previous Malibu home to a less expensive property. Reportedly, Hunter and Melissa downsized to a $15,800-per-month ocean view Malibu property, a significant reduction from his previous $20,000-per-month California residence.
While the national average rental price is just north of $2,000 a month, Hunter Biden, the first family’s business rainmaker, pays $15,800 a month for a beautiful residence on the Pacific Ocean, the Daily Mail reported.

Hunter Biden’s new home is a three-bed, three-bath compound with panoramic sea views, built on a cliff in a gated community. The rental’s listing calculates the home’s square footage to be 2,500, with an estimated value of over $4 million.
The property’s listing describes it as having “mesmerizing ocean views that are the ultimate backdrop for dining alfresco or stargazing over the shimmering Pacific” and a “vastly open floor plan, beautiful wood-beamed ceilings and large windows that give the illusion of being fully immersed and in total harmony with nature.” CONTINUE READING…
