Wednesday Morning Rant [Joe Mannix] | Main | Important Announcement From Joe Biden: Joe Biden Cured Cancer As We Know It
July 26, 2023



Will Scharf @willscharf The Hunter Biden plea deal was apparently more outrageous and far reaching than had previously been publicly known.

In return for pleading to the two misdemeanor tax fraud charges, with a joint recommendation of no prison time, Hunter was getting not just pretrial diversion on his felony gun charge that would leave his record clear if he completed probation, but also broad guarantees against further prosecution on a wide range of other charges that haven't been publicly aired as of yet.

Hunter refused to plead guilty without these guarantees, so the judge effectively blew up the plea.

Hunter wants to walk away from a decade of criminal activity, including potential FARA violations and other serious criminal charges, with a slap on the wrist.

It's a scandal that Biden's DOJ was willing to agree to this kind of a deal.

Fortunately, Judge Norieka isn't playing ball.

#BREAKING: The Hunter Biden plea deal is DEAD after the judge expressed MAJOR concerns about the pretrial diversion program for Hunter's felony gun charge that would wipe out additional tax charges.

Hunter Biden's lawyer called the judge in his case pretending to be a lawyer for House Republicans to try and get the IRS whistleblower testimony against him taken down from an amicus brief in the case.

This has gone from a true crime to a sitcom.

She represented herself as being a lawyer for the House and instructed the clerk to withdraw the House's amicus letter.

First son Hunter Biden's legal team appeared to pull a dirty trick Tuesday to block the release of damning evidence ahead of his expected guilty plea to federal charges of tax evasion and weapons crimes.

The drama began in the morning when the House Ways and Means Committee filed an amicus brief to Delaware US District Judge Maryellen Noreika arguing that the 53-year-old had benefited from "political interference which calls into question the propriety of the investigation" into alleged crimes including money laundering, felony tax evasion and failure to register as a foreign agent.

The filing included testimony by two IRS whistleblowers who sat for transcribed interviews May 26 and June 1.

What happened next was outlined in a letter sent to the judge Tuesday afternoon by the committee's top lawyer, Theodore Kittila.

"[A]t approximately 1:30 p.m., we received word that our filing was removed from the docket," Kittila said. "We promptly contacted the Clerk's office, and we were advised that someone contacted the Court representing that they worked with my office [emphasis original] and that they were asking the Court to remove this from the docket. We immediately advised that this was inaccurate. The Clerk's Office responded that we would need to re-file. We have done so now."

Kittila included email exchanges with court officials and Hunter Biden's attorneys in the fresh filing.

"Hi Ted, Following up on our recent telephone conversation, the woman who called was a Jessica Bengels," confirmed court official Samantha Grimes. "... She said she worked with Theodore Kittila and it was important the document was removed immediately or they could file a motion to seal. I do deeply apologize for all the confusion on our part."

It is a disbarment-level offense to work a fraud on the court.

Regime lawyers don't get disbarred, though.

Bengels is the director of litigation services at the New York-based law firm of Latham & Watkins, where Hunter Biden attorney Chris Clark was formerly a partner.

When Kittila confronted the first son's legal team, Hunter's attorneys tried to claim the filing contained confidential tax and identifying information, even though the whistleblower testimony has been public for more than a month.

The time stamps from the emails also indicated the request to take the document down was made after Kittila refused a request to file the testimony under seal.

"As far as I am aware, the managing attorney from Latham called the clerk's office to note that personal tax information of the defendant had been filed in a non reacted [sic] manner and to inquire regarding having the information sealed, as we told you we would and as you said you understood," Clark wrote. "As far as I am aware the clerk took the filing down on their own accord. Your attempts to publicly file my client's personal financial information with no protection ls [sic] are improper, illegal and in violation of applicable rules ... We will seek all appropriate sanctions in response to your actions."

"You should probably take a step back from your statements," Kittila warned. "The clerk's office advised that it was represented to her that the request was being made by my firm. We will be advising Judge Noreika of this improper conduct."

"I stand by all of my statements and I hope you have an affidavit from the clerk in support of yours," Clark replied.

In an evening order, Noreika gave Hunter's attorneys until 9 p.m. to "show cause as to why sanctions should not be considered for misrepresentations to the Court." -- while noting they had not formally filed any request to seal evidence in the matter.

She is now claiming that her claim that she worked with the House and was therefore authorized to withdraw the motion herself was just a "miscommunication."


Former "Republican" David Jolly, now turned 24/7 grifter for the left, says that becaue this lawyer claims she didn't lie about her identity, it's not a story and you should just

Oh, she says she didn't work a fraud on the court after she got caught working a fraud on the court. Well nevermind then, Shill.

We didn't lose anyone that we would miss.
