After U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s attempt to “fix” Hunter Biden’s federal gun possession-related charges and tax case unraveled in June under scrutiny from Congressional Republicans and a Delaware federal judge, the Department of Justice finally indicted Biden on three felony tax charges in Los Angeles, California today. The new indictment also included six misdemeanor tax-related charges.
The indictment outlined Hunter Biden's four years of wild spending that included his failure to report all of his income to the Internal Revenue Service and his rampant use of phony business deductions to cover his expense on prostitutes, sex clubs, drug purchases, and other non-deductible expenses.
In September 2023, Hunter Biden was indicted in Delaware on three federal felony charges for false statements he made on a federal application for the purchase of a firearm.
Hunter Biden faces up to 25 years in prison in each case. He still faces potential federal criminal charges in Washington, D.C. for lobbying for foreign government without registering as an agent for these clients.
Merrick Garland’s “sweetheart” plea deal had Biden pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges, with no jail time. This plea deal blew up in court under the scrutiny of a federal judge who smelled a “rat” in the way the Department of Justice handled Biden’s case.
Hunter Biden’s plea deal is proof positive that Garland’s Department of Justice is more than willing to “fix” cases for politically connected criminal defendants. The term they use for "fixing" a criminal case is "prosecutorial discretion."
As of this date, Garland's Department of Justice is still trying to “fix” criminal cases involving current executives of the Atlanta-based Southern Company and former executives of its affiliate, Alabama Power Company.
Hunter Biden’s father, Joe Biden, is a sitting U.S. president with the unfettered power to pardon his son. It is unknown whether Joe Biden will exercise this power to spare his drug-addict son from experiencing the ordeal of criminal trials in two different federal venues and federal prison time, if convicted.
