Senator Tom Cotton Questions Biden’s Potential Pardon of Hunter Biden

 June 3, 2024

Recent statements by Senator Tom Cotton have intensified debates about the perceived politicization of the U.S. Justice Department under President Joe Biden.

Senator Tom Cotton suggested that President Joe Biden should be asked whether he plans to pardon his son Hunter Biden after the election during an appearance on "Meet the Press."

Breitbart News reported that Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas questioned actions purportedly taken by the Justice Department, suggesting a bias towards protecting President Joe Biden's interests.

The department is alleged to have targeted Democrats like Senator Bob Menendez and Representative Henry Cuellar, who have expressed criticism of Biden’s policies. Additionally, similar investigations have implicated the Mayor of New York, who has criticized the President’s positions on immigration.

An Increased Focus on Hunter Biden's Legal Challenges

The discourse takes a sharp turn toward Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, who faces serious allegations over numerous crimes. A controversial aspect involves a judge who had to step in during proceedings involving Hunter Biden's prosecutor and defense attorneys, which raised eyebrows regarding fairness and legal propriety.

A pivotal suggestion made by Senator Cotton was that President Biden may pardon his son after the upcoming elections, thus potentially quashing all legal proceedings against him. This proposal hearkens back to a pattern previously observed in political arenas, where legal actions against political figures are quieted post-election.

Highlighting an inconsistency, Senator Cotton referenced former President Donald Trump’s decision not to pursue legal action against Hillary Clinton post-2016 elections despite vigorous campaign trail promises, suggesting that such decisions not to prosecute are not unusual in American politics. However, the overarching accusation remains that such leniencies starkly contrast with targeted legal actions against political adversaries.

Comparing Political Retributions and Judicial Repercussions

Senator Cotton also drew parallels with Donald Trump’s expressed intentions to use the DOJ against Joe Biden as retribution, contrasting it with achieving societal “success at the ballot box” rather than through judicial means.

The argument pivots on international perspectives, where actions similar to those allegedly happening in New York against Trump, if confirmed, resemble practices seen in countries like Pakistan or Brazil. According to Senator Cotton, such practices would typically draw sanctions from the U.S., highlighting a dissonance between domestic actions and international principles.

Claims regarding the weaponization of the Justice Department extend into broader allegations that it has been used to systematically undermine President Trump's administration, drawing fierce criticism and claims of bias from several quarters.

Public Reactions and Political Implications

“So he’s weaponizing it against people that don’t like him?” Senator Cotton questioned, spotlighting his contention that the department's actions are politically motivated rather than driven by justice. “Henry Cuellar criticizes the president’s immigration policy. They’re investigating the mayor of New York because he has criticized Joe Biden’s immigration policy,” he added, emphasizing what he believes is a pattern of targeted investigative actions.

Senator Cotton explicitly argued the case of Hunter Biden’s alleged infractions and the purported attempts to maneuver legal outcomes in his favor by the Department of Justice, stating: “Hunter — Hunter Biden is guilty of so many crimes, you can barely even keep track of them, unlike Donald Trump, for whom they never even revealed the alleged crime that he supposedly tried to cover up."

In conclusion, the issues highlighted the depth of divisive practices and the extent to which justice can be perceived as impartial amidst political tensions. Senator Cotton’s dialogues have brought renewed scrutiny on Hunter Biden and propelled questions about the fairness and integrity of the U.S. Justice Department under the current administration.
