In a surprising development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden, has managed to secure a plea deal despite facing serious charges. U.S. attorney David Weiss announced that Hunter Biden has agreed to enter a pretrial diversion agreement for a felony charge of possessing a firearm while being an unlawful user of a controlled substance.
He will also plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. Federal prosecutors have recommended probation for these offenses.
The plea deal has raised concerns about the accountability of prominent gun-control Democrats and advocacy groups. Fox News Digital reached out to several Democrats in favor of gun control, including Representatives Pete Aguilar, James Clyburn, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerry Nadler, Abigail Spanberger, Eric Swalwell, and Mike Thompson, but received no response. The silence is puzzling considering their professed commitment to justice and accountability.
Not only have Democrats remained silent, but inquiries to leading gun-control groups such as Giffords, Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, March for Our Lives, and Moms Demand Action have also gone unanswered. The lack of response raises questions about their stance on holding individuals accountable for gun crimes.
Representative Eric Swalwell provided a response, claiming that Hunter Biden had taken responsibility and dismissing the investigation as baseless. However, the severity of the allegations against Hunter Biden and the implications of the plea deal warrant a closer examination.
The firearms charge against Hunter Biden stems from allegations that he lied during a gun purchase in 2018. This is just one aspect of the ongoing federal investigation into his activities, which began in 2018 following suspicious activity reports related to funds from foreign nations, including China. Republicans have accused Hunter Biden of leveraging his father’s position as vice president for personal gain.
While Hunter Biden’s actions are significant, it is crucial to look beyond him and focus on the accountability and integrity of the Biden family as a whole. Representative Clay Higgins rightly points out that Hunter Biden is only a part of what he refers to as the “Biden Crime Family.” The true focus should be on President Biden himself.
Republicans continue to demand answers and transparency, highlighting the need for justice in Hunter Biden’s case. The plea deal falls short of delivering true accountability and raises concerns about the integrity of the Biden administration.
A stark contrast can be seen when comparing the treatment of Hunter Biden to the relentless pursuit of Former President Trump. The American people deserve clarity and fairness, leaving many questioning the motives behind the Biden DOJ.
