Hunter Biden invited to White House state dinner 2 days after news of plea agreement on federal tax charges

Hunter Biden was listed among the guests invited to a White House state dinner Thursday night for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his wife. 

The invitation comes just two days after the 53-year-old’s agreement to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax became public. 

“Despite owing in excess of $100,000 in federal income taxes each year, he did not pay the income tax due for either year,” the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware David C. Weiss’ office said Tuesday. 

Hunter Biden will also enter into a pretrial diversion agreement regarding a separate felony charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

“The President and first lady love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life,” White House spokesperson Ian Sams said in a statement. “We will have no further comment.”

The president’s brother James Biden, who has been investigated by Republicans over foreign family business deals, was also invited to the dinner Thursday that included around 400 guests.
