Hunter Biden Brutally Smacked Down By Judge

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Hunter Biden’s attempts to get his tax charges dropped have been denied by a federal judge in California. In court documents, the troubled first son alleged that the charges against him were politically motivated.

Judge Mark Scarsi reasoned in his ruling, citing eight separate motions from Hunter’s legal team, that the evidence Hunter provided, which primarily consisted of newspaper articles, “contain multiple levels of hearsay” and does not support the claim that Republicans pressured Justice Department special counsel David Weiss to treat him unfairly.

“The motion is remarkable in that it fails to include a single declaration, exhibit, or request for judicial notice,” he wrote according to The Hill. “Instead, Defendant cites portions of various Internet news sources, social media posts, and legal blogs. These citations, however, are not evidence.”

Additionally, he continues, “Defendant fails to present a reasonable inference of discriminatory effect and discriminatory purpose, let alone clear evidence of such actions.” Thus, the argument of selective prosecution is refuted.

Hunter’s legal team, which included Biden family attorney Abbe Lowell, had previously contended that the government’s evidence against their client was tarnished by the IRS’s “outrageous government conduct,” which included congressional testimony from several whistleblowers. In Delaware and California, Hunter faces charges for a number of misdemeanors pertaining to tax evasion, submitting false tax returns, and one felony count of lying on a gun purchase application while concealing continued drug use.

Hunter is accused of withholding at least $2 million in back taxes between 2016 and 2019, the much of which came from operations he carried out while doing business abroad in nations like China. Congress has asked witnesses, including family members James and Sarah Biden and former colleagues Devon Archer, to testify into whether President Joe Biden engaged in any unlawful activities in exchange for the millions of dollars Hunter helped secure. In his testimony, Hunter stated that James Biden was not a “advisor” to him in his pursuits.

Weiss, who started looking into Hunter in 2018, was named special counsel in September 2023 after it was purported by whistleblowers that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland assisted in undermining the IRS’s investigation into Hunter’s purported tax evasion.

“Upon considering his request, as well as the extraordinary circumstances relating to this matter, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint him as special counsel,” Garland said at the time, according to The Hill.

Earlier attempts to reach a plea agreement with Hunter over the summer of last year failed because defense lawyers objected to the government’s move to keep charging people outside of Delaware.
