President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter revealed Wednesday that he is under federal investigation for his “tax affairs.”

Hunter Biden said in a statement by the president-elect’s transition team that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised his legal counsel about the inquiry.

“I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately,” Hunter Biden said. The statement also said the president-elect is “deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months.

No further details were provided, but CNN reported that investigators were examining whether Hunter Biden and associates violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in China and other countries.
