Hunter: The Fix Is Still In
A looming indictment of the president’s son is only further evidence that Special Counsel David Weiss is doing his best to shield the Big Guy.
Yesterday evening, the airwaves were abuzz with news that federal prosecutors under U.S. attorney and Biden Crime Family lackey David Weiss had made a court filing indicating that they plan to seek a grand jury indictment of Hunter Biden sometime later this month.
“The filing,” as the AP reports, “came in a gun possession case in which Hunter Biden was accused of having a firearm while being a drug user, though prosecutors did not name exactly which charges they will seek. He has also been under investigation by federal prosecutors for his business dealings.”
Yippee, at long last an indictment! Right? Right?
This is no cause for celebration. Instead, it’s cause for further gnashing of teeth because it’s just one more indication that the fix is in when it comes to justice for the corrupt first son and his corrupt dad.
Why would we think such a thing? Because the filing indicates that Biden will be charged with that ancient federal gun form violation — the very same gun charge that Weiss could’ve brought forth at any time during the past five years but instead has doggedly been trying to make disappear. And that charge is very narrow, very tightly drawn, and thus designed to keep the investigation of Hunter Biden free and clear of any crimes that might implicate the Big Guy.
What sorts of crimes might those be? Oh, tax evasion comes to mind. Unfortunately — or fortunately, if you’re a Biden — the tax evasion ship has already sailed. Weiss made sure of that by running out the clock on the statute of limitations for those “alleged” crimes. And those were the crimes that connected Hunter and Joe and their influence-peddling operation — the crimes that really mattered. As National Review’s Andrew McCarthy points out, tax crimes “have a six-year statute of limitations, meaning Weiss has now obliterated any possible tax case based on conduct prior to September 6, 2017 — i.e., the tax years from 2014 through 2016, when Hunter took his post on the Burisma board and Joe leveraged his influence as vice president to pressure the new government in Kyiv to fire the prosecutor who was investigating Burisma.”
What Weiss is preparing to provide, then, is a tiny table scrap, a mere morsel, from a giant feast of Biden Crime Family transgressions. And this despite the fact that, as Just the News’s John Solomon reports, “Banking whistleblowers first began raising alarms about Hunter Biden’s business deals as long ago as Spring 2015 while his father was still serving as vice president, flagging what they feared were ‘suspicious’ transactions and ‘fraudulent’ schemes.”
Where the heck was Weiss during all this?
“Never forget,” writes McCarthy, himself a former federal prosecutor. “They think we’re idiots. That’s the main takeaway from Wednesday’s announcement by faux Special Counsel David Weiss that, by month’s end, he intends to indict Hunter Biden on a felony gun charge — the very same gun charge Weiss tried to make disappear just six weeks ago. By both regulation and performance, Weiss is unqualified to be a special counsel — which, naturally, is why Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed him.”
Elsewhere in matters concerning the Biden Crime Family, we now have evidence that the Big Guy was helping his son with media spin regarding his involvement with Burisma. As House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer wrote in a press release yesterday:
Joe Biden never built an ‘absolute wall’ between his family’s business dealings and his official government work — his office doors were wide open to Hunter Biden’s associates. There is evidence of collusion in the efforts to spin media stories about Burisma’s corruption while Vice President Biden was publicly pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine. Suspiciously, Hunter Biden’s associate had a media statement on Burisma approved by Vice President Biden himself the same day Hunter Biden ‘called D.C.’ for help with the government pressure facing Burisma.
So much for Scranton Joe’s oft-repeated (and since walked-back) claim that he’s “never discussed” his son’s “overseas business dealings.”
Like Andy McCarthy said: They think we’re idiots.
