DeSantis: “Looks like Hunter received a sweetheart deal and is not facing any charges on the massive corruption allegations. If Hunter was not connected to the elite DC class he would have been put in jail a long time ago.”
Hunter Biden agreed to plead guilty to three charges: two counts of tax information and “one possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.”
The firearm felony charge is from 2018. The tax misdemeanor charges are from 2017 and 2018.
The U.S. Attorney in Delaware brought forth the charges:
The U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware David C. Weiss said, according to the tax Information, Hunter Biden “received taxable income in excess of $1,500,000 annually in calendar years 2017 and 2018.”
“Despite owing in excess of $100,000 in federal income taxes each year, he did not pay the income tax due for either year,” Weiss’ office said Tuesday. “According to the firearm Information, from on or about October 12, 2018 through October 23, 2018, Hunter Biden possessed a firearm despite knowing he was an unlawful user of and addicted to a controlled substance.”
Weiss’ office said if convicted, Hunter Biden faces a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison on each of the tax charges– a total of 2 years– and a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison on the firearm charge.
“A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors,” Weiss’ office said.
“The investigation is ongoing,” the office said in a statement Tuesday.
Hunter entered a “probation agreement on the gun charge.”
The Navy discharged Hunter “in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine.”
It’s a sweetheart deal and everyone knows it:
Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Biden’s plea deal revealed a “two-tiered system of justice.”
“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery. These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation,” Comer said. “We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed.”

President Biden’s inept son, Hunter Biden, gets a sweetheart deal from the DOJ. What a joke.

CBS: Hunter Biden's plea agreement "likely to be very controversial" as congressional investigations raise "very serious questions about [Biden's] business deals with Chinese nationals, as well as this Ukraine energy firm, Burisma."
