The day after Biden said that ‘nobody f***s with a Biden’, it’s being reported that federal agents have the goods against Hunter Biden.
The only question that remains is whether to prosecute him or let him go.
Federal agents investigating President Biden’s son Hunter have gathered what they believe is sufficient evidence to charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to people familiar with the case. The next step is for the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, a Trump administration holdover, to decide on whether to file such charges, these people said.
Agents determined months ago they had assembled a viable criminal case against the younger Biden. But it is ultimately up to prosecutors at the Justice Department, not agents, to decide whether to file charges in cases where prosecutors believe the evidence is strong enough to lead to a likely conviction at trial.
Given the intense political interest in a criminal probe involving the son of a sitting president, Attorney General Merrick Garland has made clear that the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, David C. Weiss, who was nominated by Trump in late 2017, is supervising the case.
Garland has vowed there will be no political or otherwise improper interference in the Hunter Biden case, and has not moved to push Weiss to make a decision, the people familiar with the matter said. It is not uncommon for Justice Department investigations to take years to finish.
Despite the prosecutor being a Trump appointee, I have no faith that anything will happen to Hunter Biden because of who he is.
If it was two years ago and it were Donald Trump Jr., you’d better believe he’d be prosecuted. But I don’t believe for a moment anything will happen to Hunter, no matter what the hack AG says.
In short, Hunter could go block an abortion clinic with a whole fleet of 18-wheelers and he’d still get a pass from this DOJ.
