Hunter Biden, the troubled son of President Joe Biden, made his way out of a Delaware courthouse after pleading not guilty to felony gun charges. It seems Hunter got himself into a bit of a pickle when it was discovered that he lied about his use of illegal drugs, like the classy choice of crack cocaine, on a firearm application. I mean, who doesn’t want a guy with a crack addiction owning a firearm, right?
But here’s where it gets even juicier. The case is being brought by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who has been granted special counsel powers. Why is that significant? Well, it’s because there have been a bunch of whispers and rumors floating around suggesting that the Biden administration has been meddling in Hunter’s numerous legal issues. It’s like a soap opera, but much less entertaining.
Now, Hunter is being charged with a false statement on a firearm purchase, making a false statement related to information required by a licensed dealer, and let’s not forget the cherry on top, possession of a firearm as an unlawful user of controlled substances. That’s quite the resume.
During the hearing, the judge decided to let Hunter go free, but don’t worry, there are some strings attached. He has to find a job (good luck with that one), communicate his travel plans, and stay away from alcohol, drugs (I wonder if that includes crack?), and firearms. Oh, and random drug tests and counseling sessions are now part of his daily routine. Let’s hope he can pass those tests as easily as he passed dishonesty on his firearm application.
Hunter’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, is putting on his fighting gloves and plans to file a motion to dismiss based on a previous deal with prosecutors. Apparently, there was a deal in the works that would have let Hunter off the hook for gun charges if he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor tax fraud. But now, things have taken a sharp turn, and it’s like watching a game of legal whack-a-mole.
In the end, the indictment of Hunter is a big deal because it’s the first one since Weiss became special counsel. And guess what? Whistleblowers from the IRS have claimed that Weiss was denied that title on his first request. Sounds fishy, doesn’t it? It’s almost as if the Biden administration doesn’t want Hunter to face real consequences for his actions. Shocking, I know.
Let’s not forget the icing on the cake. Hunter’s firearm application and denial of substance use occurred four years after he was discharged from the U.S. Navy for cocaine use. Let that sink in. The guy was kicked out of the Navy for doing cocaine, and now he’s trying to buy guns and lying about it. But hey, he’s got the support of his dear old dad, President Biden, who seems to be “consumed” by his son’s legal troubles. And by consumed, I mean he’s probably spending a lot of time figuring out how to sweep it all under the rug.
It’s no wonder that a majority of Americans believe that President Biden was involved in Hunter’s overseas business activities, which conveniently led to some of the tax fraud charges he’s facing now. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it? And with each passing day, it becomes clearer and clearer that the Biden family has a talent for finding themselves knee-deep in scandal and corruption. But hey, at least they’re consistent.
