The US Department of Justice wanted to grant Hunter Biden of everything he has ever done and set up a liberal judge to fall into a trap, that she was not willing to tall into- because what Biden is accused of is so massive that all heck will break lose if he is given a free pass- especially as President Donald J. Trump is facing hundreds of years in prison for having papers he was entitled to have or opposing an election that the majority of Americans are worried was not ethical.
This situation is a massive scandal all on it’s own, as the DOJ appears to have tried to trick a judge and slip a giant gift to the Biden crime family into a plea agreement that a judge destroyed.
The optics over Hunter Biden getting a free pass to commit so many obvious crimes are so terrible, and not even a Hillary Clinton supporting judge was willing to be the person who was involved in such a scandal- and Hunter Biden went from getting a free pass- to having his plea agreement scrutinized so much it has rattled Washington DC.
Kash Patel told Benny Johnson that he believed the crash was due to an investigation into Hunter Biden’s status as a foreign agent:
And that makes a lot of sense because Hunter Biden admitted to having ties to the CCP in court:
Fox News reported on the details of the collapse of Hunter’s plea agreement to get away with it all:
Hunter Biden’s plea deal with federal prosecutors, which fell apart during his first court appearance in Delaware on Wednesday, would have granted him broad immunity, protecting him from prosecution over a wide range of alleged and potential federal crimes, according to newly released documents.
The son of President Biden was expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax as part of a deal to avoid jail time on a felony gun charge.
Specifically, the legal arrangement involved both a plea agreement over the tax charges and a related pretrial “diversion agreement” regarding a separate felony charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. Under the diversion agreement, the government wouldn’t charge Hunter Biden with the more serious gun charge if he pleaded guilty to the tax charges.
Listen as Mike Davis talk to Steve Bannon on the War Room about Hunter’s Plea agreement crisis and how it unfolded and what it all means:
Fox News reported more details:
Judge Maryellen Noreika, who is presiding over the case, did not accept the plea agreement on Wednesday, questioning the deal’s constitutionality — namely the diversion measure and the immunity Hunter Biden would receive. Noreika said the diversion agreement might be unconstitutional, which would mean the entire plea deal would be unconstitutional and he would not be getting the immunity he sought.
Ultimately, Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty after the deal collapsed.
In the wake of the courtroom drama, Politico obtained and published the text of both agreements that were part of Hunter Biden’s deal. Perhaps most notably, the diversion agreement included a clause granting him broad immunity, in perpetuity, for a range of issues scrutinized by the Justice Department during its yearslong investigation into the first son.
“The United States agrees not to criminally prosecute Biden, outside the terms of this agreement, for any federal crimes encompassed by the attached statement of facts… and the statement of facts attached [to the plea agreement],” the document states. “This agreement does not provide any protection against prosecution for any future conduct by Biden or by any of his affiliated businesses.”
The statement of facts attached to the diversion agreement outlined Hunter Biden’s history of often using crack and cocaine — behavior to which Hunter himself has separately admitted — and stated that the first son allegedly lied on a federal form to purchase a firearm by claiming he was not illegally using or addicted to drugs when he actually was.
The Daily Caller reported how bad things are for Hunter Biden:
Hunter Biden’s proposed plea deal on two misdemeanor tax charges shows the president’s son earned millions from foreign sources in 2017.
During calendar year 2017 — one of the years Hunter Biden is charged with failing to pay taxes in their entirety — the president’s son earned “just under $1 million from a company he formed with the CEO of a Chinese business conglomerate; $666,666 from his domestic business interests; approximately $664,000 from a Chinese infrastructure investment company; $500,000 in director’s fees from a Ukrainian energy company; $70,000 relating to a Romanian business; and $48,000 from the multi-national law firm,” the memorandum of the plea agreement read, Politico first reported Wednesday.
“He further negotiated and executed contracts for business and legal services that paid millions of dollars of compensation to him and/or his domestic corporations, Owasco, PC and Owasco, LLC,” the plea deal stated.
Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings are being investigated by the House Oversight Committee, and President Joe Biden has been questioned repeatedly about the extent to which he was involved in his son’s business affairs.
House Oversight released a report in May alleging members of the Biden family received $10 million from foreign sources, including from China and Romania, while Joe Biden was vice president.
The president and his administration have repeatedly denied Joe Biden was involved in his son’s business dealings. Joe Biden said in 2019 he has never “spoken” to Hunter Biden about his business affairs, and the White House has stated repeatedly since June that the president was never “in business” with his son.
Axios reported that Hunter’s legal team is frustrated and exhausted from the back and forth:
Hunter Biden’s legal team was angry and dejected late Wednesday after a plea deal to help the president’s son avoid prison blew up in a chaotic, three-hour court hearing.
Why it matters: Judge Maryellen Noreika’s rejection of Biden’s plea deal on tax charges ensures that legal issues will continue to shadow Biden just as Republicans on Capitol Hill are turning up the heat in investigating him and his father.
- Wednesday’s hearing also revealed a disconnect between Biden’s lawyers and prosecutors over the terms of the plea deal — and even subtle divisions among those on Biden’s side.
Zoom in: Hours after the hearing, Biden’s team was still fuming, suggesting that Noreika seemed intent on not letting the plea agreement go forward after deliberately questioning lawyers on both sides about the terms of the deal.
- But the judge’s questioning did reveal a disagreement over whether the agreement on the tax charges was linked to a gun charge against Biden. Prosecutors said it wasn’t; Biden’s team thought it was — and they repeatedly argued about it in open court.
- Noreika frustrated those involved in the case when, after two hours of questioning, she said she wasn’t sure whether the structure of the proposed plea deal was constitutional.
- One member of Biden’s team ruefully compared Noreika to Judge Lance Ito, who presided over the O.J. Simpson murder trial in 1995 and was widely criticized for letting it become chaotic.
- Others were quick to note that Noreika was appointed to the bench by former President Trump, and suggested they’d have to take politics into consideration going forward.
The big picture: Even if the charges against Biden are settled in the next month, the Justice Department has indicated its investigation of him is ongoing.
- And House Republicans plan to hold investigations into the investigation, as they continue digging into the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.
The intrigue: Renowned D.C. lawyer Abbe Lowell, who is handling Biden’s congressional inquiries, came out of the courtroom audience Wednesday and gradually inserted himself into the hearing — a move likely to raise questions about his taking a larger role in the case.
- At one point, Lowell went over to Justice Department prosecutors and began introducing himself.
- Lowell and Clark have been publicly courteous, but also have tried to carve out distinct lanes in representing the president’s son.
- As prosecutors and Biden’s team argued during contentious recesses Wednesday, Lowell conferred with Biden, his other lawyers and prosecutors.
- A Fox News reporter in the room reported hearing Lowell say: “I’m involved in the fray now. I was hoping not to be.”
