In a stunning turn of events, Hunter Biden, the scandal-ridden son of President Biden, has managed to secure a sweetheart plea deal despite facing serious charges. The U.S. attorney for Delaware, David Weiss, revealed that Hunter Biden has agreed to enter into a pretrial diversion agreement for a felony charge of possessing a firearm while being an unlawful user of a controlled substance.
Additionally, he will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. The federal prosecutors are recommending probation for these offenses.
The implications of this plea deal are significant, as without it, Hunter Biden could have faced a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison for the firearm charge alone, along with 12 months in prison for each tax charge. It’s clear that powerful forces are working to protect Hunter Biden from the consequences of his actions.
What’s particularly troubling is the deafening silence from prominent gun-control Democrats and advocacy groups who claim to champion justice and accountability. Fox News Digital reached out to several Democrats in favor of gun control, including Representatives Pete Aguilar, James Clyburn, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerry Nadler, Abigail Spanberger, Eric Swalwell, and Mike Thompson, but none of them responded.
It seems they are conveniently looking the other way when it comes to holding Hunter Biden accountable for his alleged gun crime.
Not only have these Democrats remained silent, but inquiries to leading gun-control groups such as Giffords, Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, March for Our Lives, and Moms Demand Action have also gone unanswered.
Is avoiding jail time an appropriate punishment for someone charged with a serious gun offense? These groups, who are quick to advocate for stricter gun laws, should be demanding justice and transparency. Their silence speaks volumes.
While most Democrats have chosen to keep quiet, Representative Eric Swalwell did offer a response. He claimed that Hunter Biden had taken “responsibility” and dismissed the investigation as “bogus MAGA claims.” This dismissive attitude towards the charges is concerning, especially considering the severity of the allegations against Hunter Biden.
The firearms charge stems from allegations that Hunter Biden lied during a gun purchase in 2018. This is just one aspect of the ongoing federal investigation into his activities, which began in 2018 after suspicious activity reports regarding funds from foreign nations, including China, came to light.
Republicans have long accused Hunter Biden of leveraging his father’s position of power during his vice presidency to engage in shady business dealings abroad.
It’s clear that the focus should not solely be on Hunter Biden. While his actions are significant, the bigger concern lies with the accountability and integrity of the Biden family as a whole. Representative Clay Higgins rightly points out that Hunter Biden is just a small part of what he calls the “Biden Crime Family.” The true focus should be on the “Big Guy,” Joe Biden himself.
As Republicans continue to press for answers and transparency, it becomes increasingly evident that justice has not been served in Hunter Biden’s case. This plea deal creates an illusion of accountability, but it falls far short of delivering true justice.
The American people deserve better, and they deserve answers from the Biden administration. The contrast between the treatment of Hunter Biden and the relentless pursuit of Former President Trump is stark, leaving many questioning the motives and integrity of the Biden DOJ.
