It’s been a big day for news surrounding the president’s degenerate son and his probable criminal activity. The latest involves a whistleblower that has come forward purporting to have documented evidence that a “senior political appointee” is actively obstructing the prosecution of Hunter Biden. That senior political appointee has been reported to be none other than AG Merrick Garland.
Perhaps that development opened the floodgates because Thursday evening brought a major leak via NBC News that is providing key insight into what criminal charges are being considered against the younger Biden. More importantly, it also reveals exactly what the roadblock is that is protecting the Bidens.
Federal prosecutors have considered charging Hunter Biden with three tax crimes and a charge related to a gun purchase, said two sources familiar with the matter.
The possible charges are two misdemeanor counts for failure to file taxes, a single felony count of tax evasion related to a business expense for one year of taxes, and the gun charge, also a potential felony.
The two felonies would obviously be the biggest threat to Hunter Biden. Tax evasion carries a penalty of up to five years in prison while lying on an ATF gun-purchase form can land someone in prison for double that. Whether those penalities would actually be levied in the event of convictions is anyone’s guess. Who the judge is would play a big role in that.
But none of those details matter if prosecutors don’t push forward with the charges. That’s where the other part of this leak comes in. According to two senior law enforcement sources, the FBI finished its investigation a year ago while the IRS was done even before that.
Two senior law enforcement sources told NBC News about “growing frustration” inside the FBI because investigators finished the bulk of their work on the case about a year ago. A senior law enforcement source said the IRS finished its investigation more than a year ago.
The Washington Post previously reported that federal investigators believed they had gathered enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase.
The decision on which charges to file, if any, will be made by U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was appointed by President Donald Trump and retained by the Biden administration to continue the Hunter Biden investigation. There are no indications a final decision has been made, said the two sources familiar with the matter.
In other words, officials at the DOJ are slow-walking the prosecution of Hunter Biden despite having multiple agencies provide what appears to be solid evidence of criminal activity. It should not take a year to review what the FBI and IRS came up with. Yet, the DOJ continues to stall, with no decision to move forward even being made yet.
What are they waiting for? I think we can reasonably assume that they are waiting around in order to protect the Bidens from the political fallout that would ensue. That’s exactly what the aforementioned whistleblower is alleging, and the corruption goes all the way to the top, with AG Merrick Garland being directly implicated. As I said in a previous piece, this makes Watergate look like child’s play.
