Hunter Biden Indicted on Felony Gun Charges; Gets Pass on Tax Evasion, Other Alleged Crimes

'Today's charges are a very small start, but unless U.S. Attorney Weiss investigates everyone involved in the fraud schemes and influence peddling, it will be clear President Biden's DOJ is protecting Hunter Biden and the big guy... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) White House First Son Hunter Biden was slapped with three criminal gun charges and could potentially face up to 10 years in prison.

Special Counsel David Weiss charged the president’s son with two counts of making false statements in the purchase of a firearm and one count on illegally obtaining a firearm while addicted to drugs.

The Hunter indictment comes in the wake of a plea agreement that crumbled last month when U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika shot down the deal that included immunity for other charges Hunter could possibly face.

The charges filed by Weiss stem from Hunter claiming in 2018 that he was drug-free in an application to purchase a handgun. The drug-addict son subsequently admitted in his memoir that he was using cocaine at the time.

Greene wasn’t alone noting the absence of other charges.

“That’s a small improvement on the previous kid gloves, sweetheart deal which tried to give Hunter a pass on a crime any MAGA supporter would get a decade in prison for,” Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk wrote. “But what about Hunter’s unregistered foreign lobbying? What about the money laundering, with Hunter passing on half of his massive oligarch payoffs directly to his dad? What about his human trafficking of prostitutes across state lines?”

Answers might be coming soon. As part of the collapsed plea deal, Weiss sidelined two misdemeanor tax charges “in Delaware with the intention of bringing them in California and Washington, D.C. — the venues where the alleged misconduct occurred,” ABC News reported, noting that prosecutors “have not offered a timeline for those charges.”

News of the gun charges drew a mixed response from Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., chairman of the House Oversight Committee investigating myriad corruption and bribery allegations against the president and members of the Biden family.

“Today’s charges are a very small start, but unless U.S. Attorney Weiss investigates everyone involved in the fraud schemes and influence peddling, it will be clear President Biden’s DOJ is protecting Hunter Biden and the big guy,” Comer told ABC News.
