The First Family is in crisis mode as the latest accusations against Hunter Biden puts their reputation and livelihood in peril.
Hunter Biden just made a revelation in court that has Special Counsel David Weiss beside himself in his tireless effort to prevent the Biden Family Business from crumbling under the pressure of facing some unanswerable questions posed by Republican members of Congress.
The family’s troubles started to intensify this past summer, when a federal judge threw out the sweet plea deal Hunter Biden had struck with Weiss.
Had it stood as constructed by Weiss, the terms of the deal called for Hunter Biden pleading not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and dealing with a charge that he also lied on a federal firearm background check form.
The deal was carefully structured to ensure the First Son would not be forced to serve any jail time.
But when the judge reviewed Weiss’s efforts to give Hunter a lifetime “get-out-of-jail-free card,” she rejected it right away.
In fact, the judge went on to reveal she’s never come across such an outlandish proposal before.
IRS whistleblowers then stepped in to provide information on how the Department of Justice made it difficult to look into Hunter’s business and his links to Joe Biden.
After his first attempt to let Hunter off the hook failed, Weiss was forced to come back after the first Son with a new set of charges.
The new indictment against Hunter Biden consists of nine counts of tax violations.
Hunter pleaded “not guilty” to all nine charges.
But George Washington University Law professor Johnathan Turley says something is still way off base when it comes to how the case is being handled.
In a New York Post editorial, Turley explained how Weiss created the indictment to protect Joe Biden.
“The steps taken by Hunter to evade taxes are impressive, but not nearly as impressive as the efforts of the Justice Department to evade any direct implications for his father, President Biden,” Turley noted.
Among other questionable moves, the Department of Justice allowed enough time to pass that the statute of limitations is expiring when it comes to charges involving Hunter Biden’s sketchy dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma to lapse due to the statute of limitations expiring.
That move provides the Department of Justice with an opportunity to sweep Hunter Biden’s work at Burisma–and possible wrongdoing by then-Vice President Joe Biden—under a rug.
“Exploring those earlier Ukrainian payments opens up questions about Hunter’s influence peddling and would have highlighted the conflict in his father’s extraordinary move to force the Ukrainians to fire a prosecutor investigating Burisma by holding back a billion dollars in aid for the country,” Turley argued.
Turley also pointed out that Weiss managed to conveniently avoid charging Hunter Biden with violating the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA).
By failing to bring up that act, prosecutors have so far been able to distract the general public from asking all kinds of questions about why a bunch of East European oligarchs thought it was in their best interest to dump millions of dollars into the Biden family’s coffers.
If Hunter had to face a FARA charge, chances are things would get ugly fast.
Turley noted that it, “opens up questions about the millions of dollars going to the Biden family from foreign sources, a topic that Attorney General Merrick Garland has spent years avoiding.”
“In the second indictment, Weiss spends more time detailing the salacious use of this money rather than how and why it was given to the Bidens,” Turley continued.
Finally, Turley also notices that the indictment managed to somehow forget to mention Joe Biden at all.
In fact, the evidence points toward strong ties between the money rolling in and Joe Biden’s checking account.
Joe Biden not only showed up in Business meetings, but also attended dinners with Hunter Biden’s business associates.
Weiss noted that by zeroing in on a handful of tax charges, the Biden administration has found a way to distance Joe Biden from some devastating information.
“Yet Weiss continues to avoid any need to address the person who was the selling point of the influence peddling,” Turley ranted.
“It was the same person who repeatedly called into dinners and meetings, repeatedly attended events, and held meetings and photo shots for these clients,” the law professor snarked.
It’s quickly become apparent that the last thing the Justice Department wants to do is hold the Biden Family accountable for their actions.
