After a years long investigation, President’ Biden’s son Hunter is finally being held legally accountable on charges relating to unpaid taxes and unlawful gun possession. It’s what Republicans and have been drooling about relentlessly ever since Biden was inaugurated.
Notice that Democrats aren’t complaining about this, because they actually honor the law. But now that Hunter has been charged, his GOP pesterers are less than thrilled. They regard the plea deal that he accepted with prosecutors as a too lenient “sweetheart deal.” Which is ironic because one might think that Republicans would support people who resist paying taxes and embrace gun ownership. But no. Because Hunter’s last name is Biden he must be severely punished no matter how minor the crime.
Trump himself is appalled that Hunter is getting “a mere ‘traffic ticket'” as punishment. He whines that “Our system is broken.” However, he could have had his own plea deal if he were willing to admit his obvious guilt. But he arrogantly refused. And in disparaging the justice system he neglects to acknowledge that the U.S. Attorney in Delaware who charged Hunter was a Trump appointee.

In Congress the Hunter case has ignited a flurry of allegations that there is a two-tier justice system. They’re right, but not in the way that they think. Hunter received a sentence that is line with other defendants on similar charges. It’s Trump who has so far gotten off easy. And his criminal accomplices do so as well. For instance, Trump whisperer Roger Stone settled a $2,000,000 tax evasion case last year with zero jail time and not even any probation.
The Republican Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, weighed in on the Hunter matter as well. And he exhibited his notoriously deficient capacity for logic and reason. McCarthy told reporters that…
“It continues to show the two-tier system in America. If you are the president’s leading political opponent, the DOJ tries to literally put you in jail and give you prison time. But if you are the president’s son, you get a sweetheart deal. Now this does nothing to our investigation. It actually should enhance our investigation because the DOJ should not be able to withhold any information now saying that there’s a pending investigation. They should be able to provide [House Oversight Committee] Chairman [James] Comer with any information that he requires.”

McCarthy’s suggestion that the Hunter resolution “enhances” the sham probes he is conducting is downright absurd. Republicans in the House are going after Hunter and President Biden on matters that are completely unrelated to the ones just wrapped up in Delaware. James Comer, chair of the House Oversight Committee, is trying desperately to manufacture crimes of bribery and corruption from thin air. In fact, he even admits that the evidence he has been harping about doesn’t exist. And his “star witness,” who no one has talked to in three years, seems to have disappeared.
What’s more, McCarthy thinks that the resolution of this Hunter case means that the FBI can’t withhold information about totally unrelated pending investigations. Which makes no sense at all. The fact that other investigations are still in progress is justification for the FBI to decline McCarthy’s inquisition.
For his part, Comer continues to expose his biases and legal prejudice. In his response to the Hunter plea deal he said that…
“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery.”
Comer still hasn’t presented a shred of his allegedly “growing evidence,” or any hint of the criminal “pattern” that resides in his imagination. He went on to say that “We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed.” Which further reveals that he has already predetermined Biden’s guilt, despite having no legal basis for that conclusion.

Meanwhile, McCarthy and his Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, continue to disseminate lies and make hollow threats. It’s all that they have available, considering that they have utterly failed to accumulate any of those little things that we know as facts and evidence. And they will persist in that farce until they are thrown out of the majority next year.
