Hunter Biden, the son of U.S. President Joe Biden, was indicted by federal prosecutors on Thursday, according to court documents. He was indicted in a Delaware federal court on one count of possession of a firearm while using a narcotic and two counts related to Biden allegedly reporting he was not using illegal drugs while purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018.

It is the first time the son of a sitting president has been indicted. House Republicans have also launched an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s dealings with foreign nations. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said they planned to investigate a suspected “culture of corruption” surrounding Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and other Biden family members.

McCarthy said the inquiry, which will be led by Oversight Chairman James Comer, Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith, will focus on “gathering all the facts and answers for the American public.” The inquiry will request bank records and other documents from Hunter.

A plea deal regarding the Hunter Biden case fell apart in the summer amid squabbles between defense and prosecutors. In response, Attorney General Merrick Garland moved the case up to special counsel status and appointed attorney David Weiss to lead it.
