In recent days, the political landscape has been abuzz with whispers and speculations surrounding Hunter Biden’s plea hearing. The Justice Department, typically a bastion of impartiality, is now reportedly in discussions about the potential delay of this crucial hearing. But why? The answer lies in a series of allegations that have the potential to shake the very foundations of the Biden administration.
The term ‘sweetheart deal’ has been echoing in the corridors of power. This deal, which involves two tax misdemeanors for the First Son, has been under intense scrutiny. IRS whistleblowers, who have dedicated half a decade to investigating Hunter, have come forward with a bold claim: more severe charges related to tax and corruption could, and perhaps should, have been pursued. This revelation begs the question: Is the proposed plea deal an attempt to shield Hunter from more serious legal consequences?
The Heritage Foundation, a renowned conservative charity, has taken it upon themselves to seek the truth. They’ve launched a legal salvo against the Justice Department, demanding the release of communication records of Delaware prosecutor David Weiss. Their objective is clear: to determine if there was any undue influence or obstruction in the prosecution process.
The Foundation’s pursuit of transparency has unveiled a startling possibility. A recent legal filing suggests that the DOJ, in light of the mounting criticism and pressure, is mulling over the idea of postponing the finalization of Hunter’s plea deal. This potential delay was brought to light by none other than the reputable Daily Mail, adding another layer of credibility to the claims.
But the plot thickens. The Heritage Foundation’s legal endeavors have revealed a significant phone call that took place on June 29. During this call, between their lawyer and DOJ counsel Jason Lynch, a crucial admission was allegedly made. The Foundation’s lawyer, Samuel Dewey, proposed a delay of Hunter’s plea hearing to allow for the processing and release of Weiss’ records. This would ensure a thorough scrutiny of the prosecutorial agreement. Lynch’s response? The Department could indeed file such a motion.
Mike Howell, the Heritage Foundation Oversight Director, voiced his concerns to the Daily Mail. He emphasized the public’s right to assess the nature of the plea deal. “”Is this a sweetheart deal? It certainly appears to be. This information needs to be out and it’s in the public interest for it to be out prior to any plea being signed off on,”” Howell stated.
The Foundation’s quest for transparency began in March when they submitted a FOIA request to the DOJ. They sought documents and communications between Weiss’ Delaware office and other DOJ officials related to the Hunter Biden investigation. However, their efforts were met with silence, prompting them to resort to litigation.
The crux of the matter is the whistleblowers’ claims that Weiss faced obstructions from Biden-appointed prosecutors when trying to prosecute Hunter’s crimes in other jurisdictions. If true, this could be a monumental scandal.
Attorney General Merrick Garland’s statement further complicates matters. He asserted that Weiss had the authority to prosecute Hunter anywhere in the US. However, IRS investigators have testified that Weiss claimed he faced obstructions from Biden-appointed prosecutors in DC and Los Angeles.
The American public is now left with a pressing question: Is there a concerted effort to protect Hunter Biden from the full extent of the law? Only time, and the relentless pursuit of truth by organizations like the Heritage Foundation, will tell.
