Hunter Biden was offered a ‘sweetheart deal’ that will keep him from going to prison.
And his father appeared to congratulate his son on his good fortune.
Joe Biden offered Hunter an insane piece of praise for taking the deal.
Hunter Biden will plead guilty as part of a plea deal in order to avoid jail time after receiving charges for a gun felony and two tax misdemeanors.
And in response, President Joe Biden told a reporter on Tuesday, “I’m very proud of my son” during an event in California.
White House spokesman Ian Sams said in a statement: “The President and First Lady love their son and support him as he continues to rebuild his life.”
Democrats appear to hope the plea deal will close the investigations into the Biden family.
A Politico report citing a person familiar with the plea deal said it’s “intended to be a comprehensive resolution of Hunter Biden’s potential legal liability in all matters investigated by federal authorities.”
“Those matters include allegations Republicans have leveled in recent years that his business dealings and his well-compensated post on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma amounted to corruption or violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act,” the report said.
“This is the end of it,” the person said.
Hunter Biden’s attorney also released a statement saying the deal marks the end of the investigation.
“With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the United States attorney’s office for the district of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved,” read the statement from attorney Chris Clark.
“I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life. He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”
However, Republicans aren’t stopping their investigations into the Biden family.
“Let’s be clear: the Department of Justice’s charges against President Biden’s son Hunter reveal a two-tiered system of justice,” said House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY). “These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation. We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed.”
Donald Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) blasted the agreement as well.
“Looks like Hunter received a sweetheart deal and is not facing any charges on the massive corruption allegations. If Hunter was not connected to the elite DC class he would have been put in jail a long time ago,” DeSantis tweeted.
He also linked a video clip of him arguing that there are “two different sets of rules depending on whether you’re a member in good standing of elite society or not.”
Trump said the deal equated to a “mere traffic ticket.”
“Wow! The corrupt Biden DOJ just cleared up hundreds of years of criminal liability by giving Hunter Biden a mere ‘traffic ticket.’ Our system is BROKEN!” Trump posted on his social media platform, Truth Social.
