Hunter Biden Accepts Plea Deal
In doing so, he avoids a felony, and his father gets to claim his DOJ prosecutes everyone, regardless of politics.
Hunter Biden has accepted a plea deal that will charge him with two misdemeanor counts of not paying his taxes and sends him to a “pretrial diversion” in exchange for dropping the more serious felony charge of possession of a gun by a drug user.
Delaware US Attorney David Weiss said in his press release that “the investigation is ongoing.” However, Hunter’s attorney has been telling the media, “With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved.” Politico also has an unnamed source who claims these charges are the end, and that there will be no further discussion surrounding Hunter and the Burisma deal either.
As Cam Edwards at Bearing Arms wrote, these charges are a win-win for the Biden family. Hunter avoids jail and felony charges, and Joe gets to avoid having his son in court fight over drug users’ 2A rights. As an added bonus, Joe gets to claim that his DOJ went after his own son; therefore, the charges against Trump can not be political. In response, former President Trump has called the Hunter charges the equivalent of a “traffic ticket,” and his son, Don Jr, said this whole thing “reeks of favoritism.”
Ironically, on June 6, Trump predicted something like this would happen. He posted to Truth Social that “They’ll hit Hunter with something small to make their strike on me look “fair.”
Rep James Comer, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, put out a statement calling out the DOJ’s “two-tiered system of justice” and promised to continue to work to expose the Biden family corruption.
Attorney Maria Medvin, who is defending several J6 people, pointed out that this whole thing “smells fishy,” and none of her clients were offered pre-trial diversions for their first-time offense of trespassing.
The NSSF put out a statement highlighting the hypocrisy of Merrick Garland’s crusade against FFL dealers while letting Hunter off scot-free on the gun charges.
“Under this administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy, licensed firearm retailers have had their lives destroyed for paperwork mistakes far less egregious than buying a gun when you are a crack addict,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “They are not serious about reducing gun violence, only scoring cheap political points. It is worth noting this announcement came today, after President Biden’s appearance in Hartford last Friday to call for gun control.”
The DOJ’s refusal to go after Hunter for the gun charges is in direct opposition to their own statement just 6 months ago when they announced that they would be cracking down on people who lie on their 4473.
This just makes the next election all the more important. It seems fairly clear that Hunter Biden got preferential treatment because of who his father is. While the Oversight and Judicial Committees continue to investigate and expose the Biden Family corruption, there isn’t much that can be done to hold the Bidens responsible until the GOP controls the DOJ, which means we need to elect a GOP president, gain control of the Senate, and hold the House.
