Biden Celebrates Dubious DOJ Deal for Hunter; GOP Lawmakers Furious w/ Two-Tiered Farce

'So Hunter Biden gets a special plea deal, slap on the wrist - probably won’t do a day of time - while DOJ charges Trump as a spy and tries to put him in prison forever. Two standards of 'justice'...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Republican lawmakers strongly criticized the plea deal reached between Joe Biden’s Justice Department and his son, Hunter Biden, regarding his multiple crimes, arguing that it amounts to a mere slap on the wrist, while the president praised the outcome.

Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to two counts of willful failure to pay federal income taxes and one count of possession of a firearm. Several prominent Republicans said that this lenient deal will spare him from serving time in jail, a shocking contrast to the treatment received by former President Donald Trump over the alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Biden celebrated the deal, claiming, “I’m very proud of my son.” Nevertheless, Republican lawmakers in both chambers of Congress wasted no time in expressing their dismay, citing the apparent two-tier justice system that favors Democrats and prosecutes conservatives.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, vehemently criticized the leniency displayed by Biden’s prosecutors toward the regime’s First Son. During an interview on Fox News, Cruz denounced the deal as an act of “cronyism” and “corruption,” accusing the DOJ of downplaying their prosecution of Trump.

Cruz fired up the interview by asserting, “Merrick Garland is going to indict Hunter Biden because he wants to be able to say, ‘Look how even-handed I am. I indicted a Biden, I indicted a Trump.'”

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., echoed Cruz’s fiery remarks and derided Big Tech for censoring the Hunter Biden laptop scandal prior to the 2020 election. She questioned in a tweet on Tuesday, “Is it still misinformation to accuse Hunter Biden of wrongdoing?”

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., drew comparisons to the harsh treatment received by Trump, stating, “So Hunter Biden gets a special plea deal, slap on the wrist – probably won’t do a day of time…”

On the House side, congressional leaders expressed their strong disapproval. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., appeared on Newsmax on Tuesday, where he sharply criticized the DOJ’s deal. Gaetz contended, “This is not justice. It is a perversion of justice to allow Hunter Biden to plead guilty to these tax charges is akin to catching Jeffrey Dahmer and then letting him plea guilty to loitering.”

Rep. William Timmons, R-S.C., also voiced his concern, accusing the DOJ of allowing Hunter to evade consequences. He pledged to investigate the allegations further through the Oversight Committee.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., supported Timmons’s statement, announcing on Tuesday that the charges “have no impact on” on the Committee’s ongoing investigations, including an alleged $5 million bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden during his tenure as Obama’s Vice President.
