Hunter Biden, the scandal-plagued son of President Biden, has managed to secure a controversial plea deal despite facing serious charges. The U.S. attorney for Delaware, David Weiss, announced that Hunter Biden has agreed to a pretrial diversion agreement for a felony charge of possessing a firearm while being an unlawful user of a controlled substance. Additionally, he will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. The recommended punishment? Probation.
While the plea deal itself is troubling, the silence from prominent gun-control Democrats and advocacy groups is equally concerning. Democrats who claim to champion gun control and accountability have remained surprisingly quiet on the matter. Representatives such as Pete Aguilar, James Clyburn, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerry Nadler, Abigail Spanberger, Eric Swalwell, and Mike Thompson have failed to address whether Hunter Biden’s punishment is appropriate for a serious gun offense.
Leading gun-control groups, including Giffords, Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, March for Our Lives, and Moms Demand Action, have also chosen to ignore inquiries about the plea deal. These organizations, which advocate for stricter gun laws, should be at the forefront of demanding justice and transparency. Their refusal to address the issue raises questions about their true motives and priorities.
Representative Eric Swalwell’s dismissive response to the charges is alarming. He downplays the seriousness of the allegations against Hunter Biden, claiming that he has taken responsibility and labeling the investigation as baseless “MAGA claims.” Such a response fails to acknowledge the gravity of the situation and raises doubts about Swalwell’s commitment to justice.
The firearms charge against Hunter Biden stems from allegations of lying during a gun purchase in 2018. This is just one aspect of a broader federal investigation into his activities, which started with suspicious activity reports regarding funds from foreign nations, including China. Republicans have long accused Hunter Biden of leveraging his father’s position of power during his vice presidency to engage in questionable business dealings.
It is important to look beyond Hunter Biden and focus on the accountability and integrity of the entire Biden family. Representative Clay Higgins rightfully points out that Hunter Biden is just a small piece of what he calls the “Biden Crime Family.” The true focus should be on President Biden himself, the “Big Guy,” and whether he played a role in his son’s questionable actions.
As Republicans continue to push for answers and transparency, it becomes clear that justice has not been served in Hunter Biden’s case. The plea deal may create an illusion of accountability, but it falls short of delivering true justice. The American people deserve a thorough investigation and an administration committed to transparency and the rule of law. The stark contrast between the treatment of Hunter Biden and the relentless pursuit of Former President Trump raises serious concerns about the integrity of the Biden administration.
