Biden was on the board of Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.[2][3][4][5][6][7] President Donald Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden by ending foreign aid to Ukraine. This caused an impeachment inquiry in September 2019, in which the President was impeached.[8][9][10]

Biden's tax affairs have been under federal criminal investigation since late 2018. On July 26, 2023, Biden pled not guilty to tax charges for filing two years of his tax returns late.[11] This is a reversal of his last guilty plea on June 20, 2023.[12] At that time, he had also admitted to "illegally owning a gun while a drug user", because he knowingly denied drug use when applying for a gun purchase permit.

The "Hunter Biden gun case could go to trial as soon as June" 2024, media said in March; Furthermore, "the judge is still [not sure that there will be a trial, or the judge is] weighing motions to toss the case".[13] Earlier (September 14, 2023), Biden was indicted by a special council in Delaware on three federal firearms-related charges.[14]
