    Federal prosecutors are reportedly weighing charging Democrat President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, with multiple crimes ranging from various aspects of his business dealings to his lying on a background check to obtain a firearm.

    Fox News reported that the office of Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss was considering charging Hunter Biden with "various tax" crimes and "possible foreign lobbying" crimes.

    CNN reported that investigators appear to have narrowed their focus to potential tax crimes and "gun-related" crimes.

    The potential gun charges are tied to Hunter Biden's "purchase of a firearm at a time he would have been prohibited from doing so because of his acknowledged struggles with drug addiction."

    Officials familiar with the matter told Fox News that the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden had reached a "critical stage" after a federal grand jury looking into the president's son concluded its most recent term at the end of last month. The source said the criminal investigation, which has been going on for four years, was still ongoing.

    CNN noted that the Department of Justice was considering whether it could bring charges right now due to a department policy about not bringing political sensitive cases with two months of an election. However, the report added that the "unwritten rule" may not even be a factor since Joe Biden is not on the ballot.

    CNN's report said that some officials are worried though that the fact that Hunter Biden is a crack cocaine addict could weaken any charges they bring against him because the defense could claim that he was not aware of his potential crimes because he was on drugs.

    Officials told CNN the same thing that they did Fox News, that the investigation was not over and more work could be needed before charges are filed.

    The latest news about the potential criminal charges that Hunter Biden could be facing in the near future did not include information from a separate report earlier this month that suggested that the president's son could also face federal charges related to prostitution.

    The development comes as new information has reportedly been uncovered from his laptop, and graphic images of Hunter Biden have circulated on social media in recent days, including video of him weighing a large quantity of what many alleged online was crack cocaine.

    The Daily Mail reported that JPMorgan Chase filed a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) after Ekaterina Moreva received tens of thousands of dollars from Hunter Biden's company.

    Texts from Hunter Biden's iPhone appear to reveal that he wrote checks to escorts provided by Moreva, whose website touted a "'girlfriend experience' with prostitutes as young as 20," the news site reported. Videos and images from the phone indicate the president's son helped transport those prostitutes over state lines, which the site noted could constitute a federal offense.

    The report noted that Hunter Biden, if he faces federal prostitution charges, could be hit for allegedly violating the Mann Act, which states: "Whoever knowingly transports any individual in interstate or foreign commerce, or in any Territory or Possession of the United States, with intent that such individual engage in prostitution, or in any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both."
