Biden Makes a Jaw-Dropping Hunter Accusation – And It Just Destroyed Joe’s Cover Story

This week, President Biden’s son was found guilty of federal gun charges. This is the first time in U.S. history that a sitting president’s son has been convicted of a crime. Republicans have called it a distraction, saying Hunter and his father are guilty of worse crimes.

Biden was accused of trying to tilt the scales in his son’s favor before the trial began. He released a statement that seemed to generate favor for Hunter. His family was even in court taking notes on the jurors.

Now, Biden apparently confessed to what was really going on. The senior Biden seems to believe that he is responsible for Hunter’s conviction. And this is raising more than a few eyebrows in D.C.

From Politico:
“If I weren’t running for reelection, he would have gotten the plea deal,” Biden told a confidant earlier this month, according to a person familiar with the conversation.

Hunter Biden was offered a plea deal that would have spared him prison time before it fell apart last July, just minutes before it was set to become official. Now, the younger Biden could face up to 25 years in prison. His sentencing date will likely come this fall.

President Biden allegedly told someone that Hunter would have gotten a plea deal had he not been running for reelection. In reality, Hunter had been given a plea deal that appeared to show the president’s son special treatment. But a judge threw it out, as it protected him from other investigations and prosecutions.

It seems Joe Biden thinks Hunter is being put up on the chopping block over his campaign. Perhaps he thinks a plea deal would have made him look bad. But many have said that this trial was just for show, as it came soon after Trump’s conviction.

It is possible Democrats are making a big deal about Hunter’s conviction to downplay the egregiousness of Trump’s conviction. Experts condemned the New York Trump case, calling it a violation of law and justice. But with Hunter also being convicted, Biden’s campaign might try to claim, “You see? Even our side faces ‘justice.'”

It is unclear what will happen to Hunter Biden. But you’re dreaming if you think he is going to jail. Or even face a heavy fine. Hunter is likely to file for an appeal, which could result in an overturned conviction or a light sentence.

Key Takeaways:

  • Joe Biden claimed Hunter didn’t get a plea deal because he was running for reelection.
  • Hunter did, in fact, get a plea deal, but a judge threw it out because it undermined other pending cases.
  • Hunter was convicted on three federal gun charges, which critics are calling an insignificant outcome.
