Prominent gun-control Democrats and advocacy groups have come under fire for their deafening silence following Hunter Biden’s controversial plea deal. The son of President Biden has managed to secure a sweetheart agreement, despite facing serious charges. U.S. attorney David Weiss announced that Hunter Biden has agreed to a pretrial diversion agreement for the felony charge of possessing a firearm as an unlawful user of a controlled substance. In addition, he will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. Federal prosecutors have recommended probation for these offenses.
The implications of this plea deal are significant. Without it, Hunter Biden could have faced up to 10 years in prison for the firearm charge alone, along with additional prison time for the tax charges. It is clear that powerful forces are working to protect Hunter Biden from the full extent of the law.
What is truly concerning is the lack of response from Democrats who claim to champion gun control and accountability. Fox News Digital reached out to several Democrats, including Representatives Pete Aguilar, James Clyburn, Hakeem Jeffries, Jerry Nadler, Abigail Spanberger, Eric Swalwell, and Mike Thompson, but received no response. Their silence is hypocritical, considering their vocal support for gun control measures. Shouldn’t they be demanding justice and accountability for someone charged with a serious gun offense?
The silence from leading gun-control groups such as Giffords, Everytown for Gun Safety, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, March for Our Lives, and Moms Demand Action is equally troubling. These organizations, who claim to fight for stricter gun laws and safer communities, have remained silent on whether avoiding jail time is an appropriate punishment for such a gun charge. Their lack of response speaks volumes about their true priorities.
While some Democrats have chosen to ignore the issue, Representative Eric Swalwell offered a dismissive response, claiming that Hunter Biden has taken responsibility and dismissing the investigation as “bogus MAGA claims.” Such a response belittles the severity of the allegations against Hunter Biden and raises questions about his true accountability.
The charge of possessing a firearm as an unlawful user of a controlled substance stems from allegations that Hunter Biden lied during a gun purchase in 2018. This is just one aspect of a broader federal investigation into his activities, which began amid suspicious activity reports related to funds from foreign nations, including China. Republicans have long accused Hunter Biden of exploiting his father’s position of power during his vice presidency for personal gain.
While Hunter Biden’s actions deserve scrutiny, the focus should not solely be on him. The accountability and integrity of the Biden family as a whole should be examined. Representative Clay Higgins rightly points out that Hunter Biden is merely a small part of what he refers to as the “Biden Crime Family.” It is crucial to delve deeper and question the actions of the “Big Guy” himself, President Joe Biden.
As Republicans continue to demand answers and transparency, it becomes increasingly evident that true justice has not been served in Hunter Biden’s case. The plea deal appears to create an illusion of accountability, but it falls far short of delivering genuine justice. The American people deserve better, and they deserve answers from the Biden administration. The stark contrast between the treatment of Hunter Biden and the relentless pursuit of Former President Trump raises serious concerns about the motives and integrity of the Biden Department of Justice.
