Hunter Biden defied a Congressional subpoena this week in a move which President Joe Biden has in the past, repeatedly suggested should lead to someone’s arrest. Will Joe hold Hunter to that same standard? Or will he use his corrupt DOJ to protect the First Son once again?
Choosing to defy the subpoena, Hunter opted instead to deliver a theatrical speech on Capitol Hill to deny claims that his father was “financially involved” in his shady foreign business dealings – not that any sane individual would believe that at this point.
Hunter went on to accuse the House Oversight Committee of carrying out “illegitimate investigations” into his family’s business enterprises while claiming bizarrely that he is “exempt” from appearing in a closed-door deposition.
The Committee subsequently announced that they would initiate contempt of Congress proceedings against the president’s son who seems to think he’s above the law because of his family’s political power.
“Hunter Biden defied a lawful subpoena today, and we will now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings. There will be no special treatment because his last name is Biden. Joe Biden & his family must be held accountable for their corruption,” the Committee said on X.
And theoretically, Joe Biden should support it given that in the past he has argued that anyone who defies such a subpoena should be PROSECUTED for doing so.
“Mr. President, what’s your message to people who defy Congressional subpoenas…Should they be prosecuted by the Justice Department?” CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked.
Joe responded very clearly, “Yes!”
Now, don’t hold your breath for this joke of a DOJ to ACTUALLY hold Hunter accountable in the way Joe has said should be the standard.
In fact, Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre may have accidentally admitted that Joe KNEW Hunter was going to defy the subpoena and supported him in doing so.
During a briefing, KJP revealed that Joe Biden was “familiar with what Hunter was going to say” during his speech on the Hill which as Fox News’ Peter Doocy pointed out, was a breach of the supposed “wall between the Bidens.”
Joe Biden was entirely aware of what Hunter was planning to do and say, and now even though he has made it abundantly clear that he thinks people who do this should be prosecuted, he will order his DOJ to protect Hunter once again.
Donald Trump Jr., who has been deposed five times by House Democrats after being subpoenaed over January 6, pointed out the this flawed two-tiered system of justice in America along with the left-wing propaganda machine that is the media are allowing Hunter to get away with whatever he wants.
“Hunter Biden just refused to show up for his congressional testimony. I’m looking forward to the same amount of outrage from the media as they’d have if I blew off any of my 5 congressional subpoenas… but since they’re covering for Joe Biden & his corruption I won’t hold my breath,” he wrote on X.
By now none of this should be entirely surprising. Democrats – but ESPECIALLY the Biden family – can do whatever they want with NO ramifications.
