Federal Officials are apparently “considering criminal charges against Hunter Biden” as the federal probe against the president’s son has reportedly reached a “crucial” stage, according to sources speaking on Wednesday evening. A ‘unwritten’ norm regarding the prosecution of big criminal cases near election dates appears to be delaying the decision.
According to media sources, one area of legal concern is when Hunter Biden acquired a pistol despite being forbidden from doing so due to his documented difficulties with drug addiction. Hunter has made his dependencies quite public.
Hunter Biden wrote about his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and drug abuse in his new memoir, Beautiful Things, stating, “in the last five years alone, my two-decades-long marriage has dissolved, guns have been put in my face, and at one point I dropped clean off the grid, living in $59-a-night Super 8 motels off I-95 while scaring my family even more than myself.”
However, this has not encouraged gun control activists to demand for action, as Hunter has also been involved in other fraudulent business dealings over the years, for which he has never been punished.
Fox News and CNN claimed this week that the disgraced son of Democrat Joe Biden, 52-year-old Hunter Biden, may be closer to facing prosecution.
The discovery comes after months of great public interest in the contents of Hunter’s laptop, which apparently contains extensive photographs of Hunter using drugs, handling weapons, and engaging in prostitution.
Numerous photographs of youngsters who may have engaged in sexual behavior with Hunter are of considerable public concern, and the federal government must tread carefully while discussing possible prosecutions due to the forthcoming elections.
CNN cited “people knowledgeable on the situation” in reporting that “investigators are weighing possible charges and prosecutors are facing Justice Department instructions to avoid pursuing politically sensitive cases close to an election.”
CNN admitted that the way Hunter’s case is being handled is political in their reporting:
“Current and former Justice Department officials say there is an unwritten rule that prosecutors avoid bringing politically sensitive cases within 60 days of an election.
Some current and former Justice officials have debated whether the rules necessarily apply in this instance since Joe Biden isn’t on the ballot in the midterms.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
A lawyer for Hunter Biden declined to comment. The US Attorney’s Office in Delaware declined to comment.”
So, while no final decision has been made on whether to bring charges against President Joe Biden’s son, sources say the probe has intensified in recent months along with discussions among Delaware-based prosecutors and investigators running the probe and officials at Justice Department headquarters.
In other words, they are talking about charges.
Media reports are saying that possible charges stem from a probe into Hunter Biden’s finances and overseas business deals. CONTINUE READING…
