A Biden-Friendly Prosecutor Rigs an Election
By deciding to delay an investigation into Hunter Biden, a federal prosecutor no doubt helped Joe Biden and hurt Donald Trump.
The Democrat Party is The Party of Government. And the American people don’t trust their government. A recent poll by the Pew Research Center makes that abundantly clear, as less than one-fourth of Americans say they trust the federal government to do what’s right “just about always” (2%) or “most of the time” (22%).
And why should we trust Beltway politicos — especially if we believe in Liberty and limited government? After all, they spy on us, they lie to us, they sic the IRS on us, they collude with Big Tech to censor us, they discriminate against us based on race, and now we know — definitively — that they rig elections against us.
As Politico reports:
Last summer, federal officials in Delaware investigating Hunter Biden faced a dilemma. The probe had reached a point where prosecutors could have sought search warrants and issued a flurry of grand jury subpoenas. Some officials involved in the case wanted to do just that. Others urged caution. They advised Delaware’s U.S. Attorney, David Weiss, to avoid taking any actions that could alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election.
“To his credit, he listened,” said a person involved in the discussions, reported here for the first time. Weiss decided to wait, averting the possibility that the investigation would become a months-long campaign issue.
In short: They protected Hunter Biden, they suppressed the damaging truth, and they thereby rigged the election against Donald Trump.
If this sounds familiar, we’d point you to Big Tech’s censorship of another Hunter Biden bombshell just prior to the 2020 election. Were Hunter Biden a regular schlub, he’d be in prison, and his dad would be a deeply disgraced ex-politician. Instead, Hunter is publishing books and secretly selling “artwork,” and his dad is the president of the United States.
Is this a rotten country or what?
Sometimes we wonder whether the lefties at Politico even understand the gravity of what it is they’re reporting. Last week, for example, they published a piece about how “Biden allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee” are planning to work with SMS carriers to censor what we send via our personal text messages. But did Politico raise any alarms about the First Amendment issues of that revelation? Did the word “Constitution” even appear in the article? (Those are rhetorical questions.)
Politico, in fact, was one of dozens of media outlets that refused to talk about Hunter Biden in the run-up to the 2020 election. In fact, these “journalists” actually did the opposite: They helped our corrupt government spread disinformation about Hunter’s laptop. “More than 50 former senior intelligence officials,” they reported two weeks before the election, “have signed on to a letter outlining their belief that the recent disclosure of emails allegedly belonging to Joe Biden’s son ‘has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.’”
No intelligent person ever believed this deceptively worded deep-state ruse. But the mainstream media dutifully reported it. Just before a presidential election. To help drag its guy across the finish line.
As for today’s news, Politico no doubt pondered the damage that the story might do to Joe Biden’s campaign, but did they even think about the countervailing damage that delaying the administration of justice would have on the Trump campaign? And what about the federal prosecutor, Weiss, who actually made that decision? Did he consider the ramifications fully, or only partly? Whatever happened to blindfolded Lady Justice? You remember: the one with the scales and the sword? Let’s think about the information that was kept from we the people — the people who are tasked with making informed decisions when we cast our ballots. As National Review reports, “The U.S. Attorney’s office had been investigating allegations that the president’s son was engaged in pay-for-play Chinese business engagements, potential money laundering, violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and tax evasion.”
We’re not talking about jaywalking here. These are serious allegations. And they point – just as they always do – to our two-tiered justice system: one tier for the Left, and one for the Right.
As one of our colleagues quipped this morning, “Imagine if the person of interest had been Donald Trump Jr. I’m sure they would have extended the same courtesy, right? Right?”
Yeah. Just imagine.
