Hunter Biden’s convictions were the topic of discussion in political circles and on the news Thursday and Friday. People voiced a variety of opinions about why such a story—which was almost already seen before—was happening again after nearly five years of investigations into the President’s troubled son had produced no real legal action against him.
Everyone in DC seems to be taking its time to take action to penalize their preferred first family, with the exception of a few daring Republicans on The Hill. Then there came the strange publication of an article that fans of the Biden said was leaked out.
Hunter Biden’s attorney freaked out at that point and released a statement.
And that comes after everyone has realized that nothing would be done about the case until after the elections.
The Washington Post reported on Thursday “Given the intense political interest in a criminal probe involving the son of a sitting president, Attorney General Merrick Garland has made clear that the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, David C. Weiss, is supervising the case.”
There were also many contrasting viewpoints over the timeliness of the recycled story, since new information kept coming to light that would only serve to give it more airtime while accomplishing absolutely nothing.
According to some political observers, the entire situation was fairly odd and seemed to be an attempt to undermine the tale. And right now, Hunter Biden’s attorneys want to look into the investigators.
According to Devlin Barrett and Perry Stein for the WaPo, “Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee, must decide whether to charge the son of the current president,” and continued:
“Federal agents investigating President Biden’s son Hunter have gathered what they believe is sufficient evidence to charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to people familiar with the case. The next step is for the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, a Trump administration holdover, to decide on whether to file such charges, these people said.”
The damaging report about Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop’s contents, which revealed what many Americans believe to be the Biden crime family, was soft-pedaled by the WaPo writers.
The laptop contains graphic information about drug use and child sexual abuse that was intertwined with serious offenses involving national security.
Left-leaning WaPo writers also portrayed the scenario as follows:
“The investigation into Hunter Biden began years ago, and became a central focus for then-president Donald Trump during his unsuccessful 2020 reelection effort. Initially, the investigation centered around Hunter Biden’s finances related to overseas business ties and consulting work. Over time, investigators with multiple agencies focused closely on whether he did not report all of his income, and whether he lied on gun purchase paperwork in 2018, according to the people familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing case.
Agents determined months ago they had assembled a viable criminal case against the younger Biden. But it is ultimately up to prosecutors at the Justice Department, not agents, to decide whether to file charges in cases where prosecutors believe the evidence is strong enough to lead to a likely conviction at trial.”
Chris Clark, a representative for Hunter Biden, claimed that investigators had leaked material when questioned about the recent publication of the story. In a written statement, Clark stated that “It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one.”
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
“Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors.
As is proper and legally required, we believe the prosecutors in this case are diligently and thoroughly weighing not just evidence provided by agents but also all the other witnesses in this case, including witnesses for the defense. That is the job of the prosecutors. They should not be pressured, rushed, or criticized for doing their job.” CONTINUE READING…
