WaPo: Federal Agents Say They Have Enough Evidence to Charge Hunter Biden With Tax and Gun Crimes

Why is there no Special Prosecutor appointed in the Hunter Biden matter?

We now have prosecutors saying they have enough evidence to proceed with charges -- and we all know that "no one f***s with a Biden." We know that Mafia Joe's wingman Merrick Garland has already pre-written a statement claiming that "no reasonable prosecutor" would prosecute someone for... (checks notes) felony tax evasion and... (checks notes) ... lying on a gun application to buy a gun.

No Special Prosecutor.

Not a single demand from a NeverTrump figure that one be appointed -- despite their screaming for one before a single defined crime was alleged regarding Trump.

But let David French tell you all about his Honor and Integrity.

Let Matt K. Lewis tell you all about how "conservatives" have strayed from the path of righteousness that only his Dainty Feet have kept to.


This is not America.

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.

The Washington Post claims he's a Trump appointee. That's true but misleading -- first he was an Obama appointee, serving as interim US Attorney 2009-2011.

There's also the issue of "Senatorial courtesy," whereby the Senator from the state suggests the US Attorney that will serve that state. The president usually respects this choice. This means that one of Delaware's two Democrat Senators must have put forward his name to Trump, and nominated him again to Biden.

To keep pounding the drum that he's a "Trump nominee" is so misleading as to essentially be a lie. He's not some kind of Trump favorite. It's not like Trump picked up the phone and said (Trump voice ON) "Get me Big Dave, I want Big Dave."

He was previously an Obama US Attorney had has been twice nominated by Democrat Senators.

The investigation into Hunter Biden began in 2018, and became a central focus for then-president Donald Trump during his unsuccessful 2020 reelection effort. Initially, the investigation centered around Hunter Biden's finances related to overseas business ties and consulting work. Over time, investigators with multiple agencies focused closely on whether he did not report all of his income, and whether he lied on gun purchase paperwork in 2018, according to the people familiar with the situation, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing case. 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.

A spokeswoman for Weiss declined to comment, as did spokespeople for the Justice Department, and the FBI and the IRS, the two primary investigative agencies.

People on Twitter were surprised by this: Suddenly, it turns out, leaks by Justice Department personnel are bad!

The things you learn!


Asked about the case, Chris Clark, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, accused investigators of leaking information. "It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one," Clark said in a written statement. "Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors."

Here, the Washington Post begins laying the groundwork for a non-prosecution based on the notion that "Trump has made this too political to be prosecuted:"

Any charging decision involving the Biden case is especially fraught because Trump and his allies have made accusations of corruption in Hunter Biden's business dealings a key line of attack against Democrats, both before and after the 2020 presidential race. At the height of the election campaign, Trump allies revealed that a Delaware computer shop owner had turned over to the FBI a laptop that had apparently belonged to Hunter Biden. Trump and others argued the data on the laptop showed evidence of unethical and possible illegal business deals; Joe Biden and his supporters denounced the efforts as a smear.

It's so weird that, despite the left hyperpoliticizing the Trump situation, they never once worry that they may have made the case against Trump "too political" to pursue legally!

Isn't that weird?! So weird!
