Americans should be fuming over the latest revelations of how Hunter Biden was gifted a cozy plea deal that keeps him out of prison where he belongs.
On Wednesday, two IRS whistleblowers recounted how his father’s Department of Justice thwarted their investigation into tax fraud and tax evasion, all of which arose out of the First Son’s multi-million-dollar foreign influence peddling schemes.
IRS agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler laid out compelling evidence of serious crimes committed by Hunter that culminated in a document (Exhibit 2) signed by both investigators and prosecutors to charge him with multiple felonies. Yet, the charges were never brought.
The felonies magically vanished because Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, by his own admission during a pivotal meeting on October 7, 2022, was stopped by Garland’s DOJ and two other U.S. Attorneys appointed by Joe Biden in California and Washington D.C.
The stunning account by the whistleblowers serves as a tutorial on how to execute preferential treatment to avoid legal consequences. Their testimony is corroborated by contemporaneous notes, a same-day email summarizing Weiss’s confessional, the recent sworn statements of an FBI supervisory special agent assigned to the Biden probe, and independent confirmation by The New York Times.
All of this puts an ugly lie to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s previous sworn statements to congress that Weiss had unfettered authority to level whatever charges he wished and in any venue. This constitutes grounds for impeachment.
Weiss, himself, has been less than forthright by offering shifting stories. At first, he insisted that he incurred no interference and had ultimate authority to bring charges in any jurisdiction, including California and Washington D.C. Then, in a second letter to congress, he reversed course by conceding that his power to prosecute was confined to his district of Delaware. Which is it? It appears that Weiss is caught in a lie and is now trying to weasel his way around it.
Predictably, Weiss refuses to testify because “the investigation is still ongoing,” which is a transparent charade. The criminal pursuit of Hunter is as dead as a doornail. His dad has seen to that. There will be no real accountability for his obvious criminal schemes.
The whistleblowers watched the political interference unfold before their very eyes. Search warrants were scuttled, Hunter’s lawyers were tipped off before a storage unit raid, investigators were stopped from asking questions about “the Big Guy” and Joe’s involvement in a suspected bribery scheme, they were forbidden from looking at the infamous laptop chock full of incriminating evidence, their plan to approach Hunter was aborted, the statute of limitations were allowed to lapse, a special counsel was rejected, and roadblocks were set up at every turn.
This is the definition of obstruction and corruption by our own government. A clandestine cover-up of historic proportions.
Lacking any legitimate counterargument, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., dismissed all of it as “normal.” It was just an unfortunate misunderstanding and the result of “prosecutorial discretion,” he averred. You know, nothing more than a simple disagreement over charges. Except it wasn’t. There was no disagreement whatsoever.
All of the IRS investigators and the lead prosecutors in Delaware agreed without dissent that felony charges were more than justified. They planned to bring them and even signed a document saying so. It’s in writing. The next thing they knew, Hunter coped a plea to a couple of minor misdemeanors. What other American would ever receive such a sweetheart deal? No one.
Ever the Biden apologist, Raskin had the audacity to claim that Hunter was unfairly punished. In truth, the president’s nefarious son got away with the most serious crimes of tax fraud and tax evasion, not to mention influence peddling, bribery, conspiracy, money laundering, FARA crimes, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and probably racketeering.
A year ago, I calculated that the Biden family enriched themselves to the tune of roughly $100 million dollars in overseas payola. Maybe more. On Wednesday, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., offered the same estimate in an interview on Fox News.
Naturally, the mainstream media completely ignored coverage of the whistleblower hearing on Wednesday. They’ve dismissed it as non-newsworthy. They are wrong, as usual.
Selling out our country to foreign adversaries jeopardizes America’s national security. The Biden coverup is further proof that we have a president who is seriously compromised. This is exactly what our Founders feared, which is why they made treason and bribery an impeachable offense.
