Trump-Appointed Judge Has Final Say Over Hunter Biden’s ‘Sweetheart’ Deal

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

In an indirect sense, former president Trump may have some influence on what happens to Hunter Biden regarding a plea agreement he got with federal prosecutors last week.

Biden made arrangements to enter guilty pleas to two tax-related misdemeanors and a charge involving an unauthorized weapons purchase, which is typically a felony. Others who had engaged in similar crimes, in this case giving false information on a federal background check form, have received prison sentences.

Of course, this is Democrat Joe Biden’s son.

The plea agreement was made through David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, whose office claimed it is still looking into Biden’s gun acquisition. In a statement, Weiss pointed out that “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.”

Regarding the tax fines, for the years 2017 and 2018, Biden failed to pay income tax on incomes of approximately $1.5 million annually. CNN stated earlier this week that Biden would show up at some time to enter a guilty plea to the charges.

“Hunter will take responsibility for two instances of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments when due pursuant to a plea agreement,” according to his attorney Chris Clark.

Clark continued, “A firearm charge, which will be subject to a pretrial diversion agreement and will not be the subject of the plea agreement, will also be filed by the Government,” and that Hunter Biden “believes it is important to take responsibility” for errors he claimed were “made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life.”

A “pretrial diversion agreement” means that Biden is unlikely to receive any jail time and is more likely to receive probation. It this now goes before Judge Maryellen Noreika of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, who Trump appointed in December 2017. In August 2018, the Senate gave her its approval when it confirmed her. The plea agreement for the tax charges is also quite contentious.

The judge has mandated that Hunter be present in court on July 26, according to ABC News. The plea deal he and the Department of Justice reached will then be presented to her for acceptance or rejection.

She has provided money to political candidates from both of the main parties, according to ABC. They include Hillary Clinton, the late John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas.

President Trump reacted to the news of Hunter’s plea deal almost immediately on Truth Social, stating:

“Wow! The corrupt Biden DOJ just cleared up hundreds of years of criminal liability by giving Hunter Biden a mere “traffic ticket.” Our system is BROKEN!”

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Christopher Clark, was interviewed after the plea was revealed.

In his statement, Clark stated that he anticipated Hunter Biden would be “released without any conditions.” He did acknowledge that the judge will ultimately decide how to proceed.

Before it becomes official, the judge must accept the plea deal, which, barring anything strange, he or she is likely to do.

The interviewer questioned, “The prosecutors are not asking for jail time. Are you concerned that the judge here might freelance?”

“I think what’s fair is my client gets on with his life,” Clarke answered.

Clark stated that he believes the five-year inquiry into his client “is resolved.”

According to sources, Hunter’s business operations in China were the subject of an investigation by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office into possible tax evasion in December 2020. Apparently, the probe started in 2018.

According to a story from March, Hunter obtained a $1 million retainer from the head of CEFC China Energy Company in 2017 using his Connecticut law license. Officials claimed that he failed to pay the required $75 Client Security Fund charge in order to continue operating his law firm in the state. His license was thus suspended, according to Breitbart News. It was the third such suspension for his practice.

His legal license that was suspended had an address inside of the House of Sweden in Washington, D.C. listed. According to Breitbart, Hunter allegedly utilized the office space to help close a contract with CEFC China Energy Co., which led to the retainer payment from Ye Jianming, the chairman of the business.

According to reports, Ye gave Hunter a diamond in February of the same year that was worth about $80,000. Hunter ended his rental contract with the House of Sweden in 2018 following the collapse of the CEFC deal. According to reports, the Biden family negotiated a deal with CEFC in which Joe Biden (the “Big Guy”) would get a 10% financial portion of the joint endeavor.

Additionally, a $10 million bribe allegedly paid to Joe Biden and his son Hunter by a Ukrainian energy firm exec as part of an alleged influence-peddling operation has both of the Bidens under investigation.

Of course, nothing will happen because, as Joe Biden says, no one f**ks with a Biden. It’s corrupt political American mafia family.
