Ron DeSantis now says he is “skeptical” about the reasons behind the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to indict President Joe Biden’s son Hunter on tax evasion charges.

According to the accusation against Biden, which the Justice Department unveiled on Thursday, he filed false forms in order to avoid paying taxes for 2018, and he allegedly failed to pay at least $1.4 million in self-assessed taxes from 2016 to 2019.

“I think it may be being done as a way for them to feign that they’re apolitical, when in reality they’ve advanced some very highly politicized prosecutions, including against the former president,” DeSantis said.

“I wonder whether this is something where they’re going to be able to point to and say, ‘See? You can’t say that they’re going after Trump, because they’re even going after the president’s son.'” he continued.

The declaration was made months after a plea agreement involving tax and weapons charges fell through.

Hunter Biden was scheduled to enter a guilty plea to two misdemeanor counts of failing to pay taxes in 2017 and 2018, but the arrangement was rejected by a federal judge.
