The Regime Jailed Trump Personnel For Failing to Register as Foreign Agents Under FARA.
Will the Regime Put Hunter Biden in Jail for Doing the Same?

Spoiler: No, it will not.

But we should hold them accountable for that.

FARA is the Foreign Agent Registration Act. It is a law that states that any American working as an agent for a foreign government must publicly disclose this and register as a foreign agent.

Not a spy, mind you. But as an agent of influence and persuasion working for a foreign government.

The Regime never enforced this law much because almost all of The Regime gets rich fronting for foreign countries.

Until they decided to weaponize law enforcement against Trump, and suddenly FARA was a real-life law again.

But now that Hunter Biden has been caught acting as an agent of Ukraine, China, and Russia, of course FARA is back to being "not really a law" again.

Susan Ferrechio -for The Washington Times:

Hunter Biden could face federal charges related to his failure to register as a foreign agent before he cut lucrative deals with Ukraine, China and other countries where his politically powerful father held sway.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that an ongoing investigation of President Biden's son could include offenses related to the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA.

Prosecutors made the statement during a federal court proceeding where Hunter Biden was expected to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and agree to a deal to spare him a felony gun charge.

The agreement unraveled when U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika started asking questions.

Legal briefs urged her to reconsider the deal.

Judge Noreika forced prosecutor Leo Wise to acknowledge that the Justice Department is investigating Hunter Biden for other charges, including some related to FARA violations.

The 1938 law requires special registration with the Justice Department by anyone who works on behalf of a foreign country to influence U.S. policy or public opinion.
Mr. Wise did not provide details about a Justice Department investigation. Some legal experts questioned whether the Justice Department had truly started an investigation or simply threatened one if Hunter Biden did not complete a diversionary program related to the gun charge.

Mounting evidence suggests that Hunter Biden used his father's political clout to help secure massively profitable deals with China, Ukraine, Russia and perhaps other countries that wanted to influence U.S. policy.

FARA prosecutions were rarely used before 2016. Federal authorities used the once-obscure law to charge several associates of President Trump, including his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, campaign manager Paul Manafort and inaugural committee chairman, Tom Barrack.

Mr. Barrack was jailed for three days in 2021 before posting a $250 million bond. He was charged with failing to register as a foreign agent on behalf of the United Arab Emirates. A jury acquitted him of all charges.

Mr. Manafort entered a guilty plea on multiple charges and was sentenced to 73 months in prison, including the statutory maximum of 60 months for conspiracy to violate FARA.

Mr. Manafort served less than two years in prison. He was released to home confinement in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Trump pardoned him in December 2020.

Mr. Flynn, charged with secretly lobbying on behalf of Turkey, never served jail time after withdrawing a guilty plea that came with a recommended six-month jail sentence.

The Justice Department eventually moved to drop the case. Mr. Trump pardoned Mr. Flynn in November 2020.

...

Even if prosecutors put a FARA investigation on the back burner, Mr. Rahmani said, Hunter Biden could be vulnerable to prosecution under a Republican administration.
"If the administration changes," Mr. Rahmani said, "it's very likely that he's going to be prosecuted for all sorts of things."

He will be pardoned by The Puppet before he leaves office -- if Biden doesn't die before getting around to doing this politically-toxic thing.
