Hunter Plea Agreement Intended to Protect Joe Biden – The name Robert Hunter Biden might be on the plea deal agreement; however, what looks like a political agreement was intended to protect his father, President Joe Biden.
Embarrassing evidence could expose the president to unwelcome questions about his loyalties and allegations that he sold his vice-presidential office for his own personal gain.
“US District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika, as it happens, is not part of Team Biden. And in a Delaware courthouse Wednesday, the flabbergasted judge blew up the sweetheart deal that turned out to be considerably more corrupt than anyone imagined,” New York Post columnist David Harsanyi wrote. “Federal prosecutors were prepared to let Hunter plead out to two of the least consequential charges — with virtually no punishment — in exchange for blanket immunity for a slew of serious potential offenses, including tax, gun and drug crimes, a failure to register as a foreign agent and who knows what else.
Harsanyi continued: “All this, even though Hunter is still purportedly under investigation.”
Hunter Biden Protecting Joe Biden?
The leaked copy of the plea agreement suggests that Hunter Biden was to have received a guarantee of immunity for crimes committed between 2014 and 2019. Paragraph 15 of the Diversion Agreement would have given Hunter Biden an out on his illegal purchase of a firearm that normally carries a 10-year maximum prison sentence.
Noreika noted during the hearing that she had not received a copy of the agreement before the hearing and was unaware of the text beforehand. She also questioned the breadth of the agreement.
“So have you ever … seen a Diversion Agreement where the agreement not to prosecute is so broad 18 that it encompasses crimes in a different case?” Noreika asked.
“How could the FBI properly scrutinize Hunter’s tax evasion and influence peddling without talking to the president? Hunter’s laptop was teeming with texts and emails in which the son referenced his dad’s role in securing payments and taking a cut. In one email, a Burisma exec thanks Hunter for setting up a meeting with his dad,” Harsanyi wrote. “These are private correspondences that Hunter and others never thought would be made public. Why would anyone lie in them?”
Whistleblowers Allege Misconduct
Noreika was not the only one who saw things in the prosecution that were outside of the norm.
IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and his boss Gary Shapely alleged beforehand that the Justice Department and the FBI had interfered with the investigation.
“It appeared to me, based on what I experienced, that the US attorney in Delaware in our investigation was constantly hamstrung, limited, and marginalized by DOJ officials as well as other US attorneys,” Ziegler said in his testimony.
Shapely claimed that they had been blocked from going after financial streams that could have led to the president and other members of his family.
“When the subject’s father is somehow related to the finances of the subject, in the normal course of any Investigation, we would have to get that information, to properly vet the financial flows of money, and determine what we end up charging,” Shapley said.
Protecting ‘The Big Guy’, Joe Biden
If the Hunter Biden case goes to trial, it will be just as embarrassing for Joe Biden as Donald Trump’s classified documents case.
That’s an incentive for Joe Biden’s cronies to keep the evidence from seeing the light of day.
“The feds haven’t even bothered to indict Hunter yet. Why would they? The only way to protect Hunter from being investigated in the future is to give him a free pass. It’s not as if Attorney General Merrick Garland would ever put the president in jeopardy,” Harsanyi wrote. “But it’s also worth remembering that all the attention to Hunter’s debauchery can sometimes distract from real reason the president’s privileged son is being given a free ride. It’s all about protecting the Big Guy.”
In the end, it will be for the voters to decide who is the lesser evil.
