Trump lets loose on Hunter Biden plea deal: “A disgrace to America”

On Tuesday, former President Trump commented that the plea deal arranged with Hunter Biden equates to nothing more than a “traffic ticket” for President Biden’s son, asserting it exposes the “corrupt” nature of the United States justice system.

Trump responds to deal: ‘They gave him a traffic ticket’

“They gave him a traffic ticket and cleared everything up,” Trump relayed to Fox News Digital upon the announcement of Biden’s plea deal.

Trump further asserted, “It is a disgrace to the system, it is a disgrace to America, it is a very unfair situation, it is prosecutorial misconduct, and it is election interference — all wrapped up into one.”

Hunter Biden to plead guilty

According to the deal revealed by U.S. attorney for Delaware, David Weiss, Hunter Biden will plead guilty to two instances of willful failure to pay federal income tax.

Furthermore, Biden concurred to participate in a pretrial diversion agreement regarding a separate charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of, or addicted to a controlled substance.

Trump, who last week pleaded not guilty to 37 federal charges resulting from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into his alleged improper retention of classified records, argued that if it was one of his children under investigation, “it would be a different world.”

“This is a corrupt justice system and a corrupt FBI,” Trump said. He suggested that his family members would likely be facing “hundreds of years” under similar circumstances.

The office of Weiss indicated that without a plea agreement, Hunter Biden could face a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison on each of the two tax charges, and a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison on the firearm charge.

The deal still needs judicial approval.

“A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors,” said the office of Weiss.

“The investigation is ongoing,” the office stated on Tuesday.

‘Five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved’

However, Hunter’s criminal counsel, Chris Clark of Clark Smith Villazor, announced that “with the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the Unites States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved.”

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

He also mentioned that “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.”

Hunter Biden has been under investigation since 2018

Biden has been subjected to a federal investigation since 2018. That investigation into his “tax affairs” began following the discovery of suspicious activity reports (SARs) related to funds from “China and other foreign nations.”

The firearm-related charge arose from claims that Hunter Biden misrepresented facts while procuring a firearm in 2018.

Biden’s gun-related charge

An individual well-informed about Oct. 23, 2018, police report communicated to Fox News that it specified Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s deceased son, Beau, who was romantically involved with Hunter during that period, discarded a gun owned by Hunter in a trash receptacle located behind a market, situated near a school.

Fox News’ examination of a firearm transaction report indicated that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that month.

Hunter Biden was released from his duties in the Navy in 2014 following a positive test for cocaine.

“The President and First Lady love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life,” White House spokesperson Ian Sams declared in a Tuesday morning statement. He concluded, “We will have no further comment.”
