Is White House Pressuring DOJ on Hunter Biden Investigation

By Jerry McConway, updated on September 19, 2023

Last week, we were all stunned when Special Counsel David Weiss announced a federal indictment against Hunter Biden.

The charges are related to his illegal purchase of a firearm.

Talking Points…

  • Charges against Hunter
  • White House statements
  • Wall Street Journal
  • My Two Cents…

Hunter Biden Charges

Hunter is facing two counts for making false statements on his purchase forms, which carry a five and 10-year sentence, as well as a third charge for illegally obtaining a firearm while addicted to drugs, which also carries a sentence of 10 years.

The media is already trying to downplay this as something that people never go to jail for, but that is simply not true.

For instance, rapper Kodak Black was sentenced to 46 months in prison in 2019 for putting the wrong social security number on his forms as well as checking "no" when asked, "Are you under indictment or information in any court for a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could imprison you for more than one year?"

White House Statements

Hunter Biden and the White House have been making some statements which are starting to get some ears up regarding the indictments.

For instance, on Monday, Hunter Biden's attorneys accused IRS Supervisory Agent Gary Shapley and Special Agent Joseph Ziegler, the IRS whistleblowers in the case, of "improperly leaking information to Congress." Hunter is now claiming he was purposely targeted.

Joe Biden has also made repeated comments that Hunter did nothing wrong.

For instance, during the 2020 campaign, Biden was asked by Fox News, "Are you confident your son Hunter did nothing wrong?"

"I am confident," Biden responded.

Biden also did an interview in October 2019, stating:

"My son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States government, which was to root out corruption in Ukraine and that's what we should be focusing on."

More recently, in early May, Joe Biden interviewed with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

In that interview, Biden had stated, "First of all, my son has done nothing wrong. I trust him. I have faith in him."

These statements have been interpreted by some as applying pressure to the DOJ, and that would be true if we are applying the same standard as was used against Donald Trump when he made public statements against individuals when he was in office.

In fact, a judge in one of Trump's case specifically did not alert Trump that Special Counsel Jack Smith was given access to his Twitter account for fear that Trump would try to intimidate witnesses or obstruct the investigation by making public statements.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander, right?

The Wall Street Journal Report

This leads us to a recent Wall Street Journal report, which cites unnamed Biden officials who believe that Garland should have taken a firmer hand with the IRS.

WSJ reported:

"Some Biden aides also felt Garland should have taken a firmer hand after agents working on the case came forward to Republican lawmakers with allegations of improper interference in the investigation, which the aides viewed as agents improperly leaking investigative information."

My Two Cents…

I have always believed there was a case against Hunter Biden as well as Joe Biden being corrupt.

This is not "spaghetti against the wall," as Democrats, Biden officials, and some members of the media are saying.

Hunter was peddling influence, he broke the law, and he should have to pay just like anyone else.

The White House laughs off allegations by Donald Trump of election interference with his indictments, yet wants everyone to believe that Republicans are interfering in the election by going after Hunter Biden and exposing the fact that as a sitting VP, Joe Biden was helping him with influence.

I can tell you for a fact that if this were a Republican, the media and Democrats would be losing their minds over this.

Just look at how they convicted Trump in the media for the classified documents, January 6, and Russian collusion before due process, then compare that to how they are treating Joe Biden regarding the Hunter Biden mess as well as him having classified documents.

There are two different criminal justice systems in play here, which is why the American people no longer trust our government as a whole.
