Democrat "Asks" Whistleblower: Isn't Expecting an Impartial and Unbiased Investigation of Hunter Biden Just Like Slavery All Over Again?

Yes, exactly. Well-spotted, Genius!

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower Joe Ziegler looked utterly perplexed as Democratic Pennsylvania Rep. Summer Lee became unglued about slavery during the hearing on Hunter Biden's alleged crimes.

Whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Ziegler testified before the House Oversight Committee that the Department of Justice (DOJ) pressured prosecutors not to charge Hunter Biden with felony tax charges. In earlier testimony, Ziegler testified Hunter Biden and associates took more than $3 million from Romanian businesses, along with payments from Chinese-linked companies and Ukrainian company Burisma.

Despite the lengthy allegations, Lee decided to focus her statement on slavery, even choosing to relinquish remaining time back to the chairman rather than asking Ziegler a single question about his allegations.

"Republicans have been invoking this term 'two-tiered system of justice' a lot recently so I want to talk about what the real two-tier justice system is where black and brown people are over-criminalized and over-incarcerated ... I'd like to address the way my Republican colleagues are attempting to co-opt the phrase 'two-tiered justice system' to make it sound like Trump and his cronies are somehow the victims here when the reality is that the term 'two-tiered system of justice' is meant to refer to the very real system that exists in the United States and which affects black and brown folks, not powerful former presidents and their political allies," Lee said.

The congresswoman then listed incarceration statistics for black men compared to white men along with crime statistics all while Ziegler looked around perplexed as to the purpose of the comments.

Video at the link of Ziegler looking "perplexed." Just like a White Man.

Anna Paulina Luna pointed out the obvious, but apparently necessary to say: If you want to talk about "white privilege" and the privilege of the powerful, then Hunter Biden is the living, breathing, crack-cooking embodiment of Nepo Baby White Privilege getting a pass for his myriad crimes.

So this stupid, uneducated, irrational Democrat racist should be asking "why did the White Child of Privilege get special treatment?" Not arguing that Hunter Biden should get special treatment, Because Slavery.

"They were saying Republicans are trying to make it about a two-tiered justice system of which we were robbing black and brown people of the acknowledgment that there is a two-tier justice system against black and brown people," Luna said. "So, I brought up the point during my questioning, that isn't it ironic that per their definition, Hunter Biden, a privileged white male who's being given special treatment by the Department of Justice, FBI and the IRS, of which they are going to bat for, is the exact same person we are trying to criminally investigate and they are saying that it's an issue about race."

"We had on hip-hop artists who served prison time for doing the exact same thing on their taxes as Hunter," Watters responded. "So that doesn't fly."

Jonathan Turley responds Jamie Raskin's claim that the political decision-making in the Hunter Biden case was just a "routine" and "normal" exercise of "prosecutorial discretion."

"Well I was stunned when Raskin said what you're about to hear is perfectly normal," began Turley. "And he was sitting in front of two witnesses who are incredibly credible and forthcoming, and they're saying that this was anything but normal. They had never encountered anything like this before. They were waived off witnesses. They had targets tipped off before searches occurred. They had agreement with prosecutors on multiple felonies that were scuttled. They describe how there was a knowing decision to allow crimes in 2014-2015 to expire because of statute of limitations."

By the way, the Fox "reporter" asked him, "Doesn't Jamie Raskin have a point?" So Fox is all-in on protecting Hunter Biden, too.

David Strom notes the media almost completely blacked out any information about the IRS whistleblowers.

Speaking of Fox being in on the cover-up: They also played down yesterday's testimony.

Below, the confused, stupid, and racist Democrat Summer Lee:
