White House Says ‘No’ To A Hunter Biden Pardon | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The White House brushed off on Thursday the suggestion of President Joe Biden pardoning his son, Hunter, after a judge placed a plea deal on hold.

    "No," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in response to a reporter who asked if there was any possibility of a pardon. She quickly moved on to another question.

    Hunter Biden, 53, had agreed with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to plead guilty to a pair of misdemeanor tax offenses and enter a pretrial diversion agreement for a felony firearm offense that could spare the first son from time in prison.

    But, during a hearing on Wednesday, Delaware U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika put off a decision on the plea deal after raising concerns about the terms of the agreement.

    Agents with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) who have come forward with whistleblower testimony claim the criminal case led by Delaware's U.S. Attorney David Weiss has been slow-walked in a way that precluded more serious charges against the younger Biden.

    After the plea deal was announced last month, Republicans argued it was evidence of the DOJ going too easy on the president's son, particularly as they work to investigate a pattern of millions of dollars flowing from foreign nationals to the Biden family under suspicious circumstances.

    Former President Donald Trump, who is himself facing criminal charges, said the DOJ was handing "a mere traffic ticket" to Hunter Biden. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said the "sweetheart plea deal" showed a "two-tiered system of justice."

    Attorney General Merrick Garland has pushed back on claims of political interference while the DOJ has given Weiss, who has insisted he had "full authority" to bring charges, approval to testify to Congress.

    Hunter Biden's attorney, Christopher Clark, said last month that his client "believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life" and "looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward."

    Jean-Pierre said on Wednesday that the president and first lady Jill Biden "love their son, and they support him as he continues to rebuild his life." She also stressed that Hunter Biden is a private citizen and the criminal case was a "personal matter" for him. The press secretary diverted any further questions to the DOJ and to Hunter Biden's legal team.

Considering that the 2024 Presidential Election has fully begun, and the Biden Administration has consequently fully weaponized the Biden DOJ /FBI to attack all political opponents under the penalty of felonious judgement for many of the same alleged crimes, or worse, committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden himself: Are you comfortable with this level of overt corruption within the Executive Branch?
  Yes; if Democratic Socialists are to complete the remaking of this "Democracy," the End will Always Justify the Means.
  No; in a Constitutional Republic, the Rule of Law is paramount, which means the law MUST be administered evenly
  Who cares; I am just so ambivalent to all this grown-up stuff.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
