Hunter Biden Legal Team Vowed to Put Joe Biden on the Stand

The Hunter Biden case has just taken a very interesting turn.

The defense team of Hunter Biden once vowed to put Joe Biden on the stand as a fact witness for Hunter Biden's trial.

If that happens, it not only pits Joe Biden against his own Department of Justice, but it also then opens the door for prosecutors to question Biden, getting him formally on the record with the chance to perjure himself.

Letter Surfaces

A letter obtained by Politico revealed that former Hunter Biden attorney Chris Clark made the threat, writing, "President Biden now unquestionably would be a fact witness for the defense in any criminal trial."

With Clark having withdrawn from the case last week, it is now unclear if that promise remains in place, which would especially be the case now that more Biden attorneys are departing the legal team.

Clark appeared ready to use this as a strategy to create a "constitutional crisis" for Joe Biden, more or less forcing the hand of the Department of Justice to settle the case.

That little threat is really starting to clear up why the DOJ was so anxious to settle the case rather than take Hunter to trial.

Clark was clearly pushing the narrative that having a member of the first family on trial benefited nobody.

He wrote, "This of all cases justifies neither the spectacle of a sitting President testifying at a criminal trial nor the potential for a resulting Constitutional crisis," reported Fox News.

Clark suddenly withdrew from Hunter's defense team last week, writing, "a lawyer shall not act as an advocate at a trial in which the lawyer is likely to be a necessary witness unless ... disqualification of the lawyer would work substantial hardship on the client.

"Based on recent developments, it appears that the negotiation and drafting of the plea agreement and diversion agreement will be contested, and Mr. Clark is a percipient witness to those issues."

Hunter's legal team was trying to pressure prosecutors into accepting a plea deal that would have given Hunter Biden immunity from all future charges for current investigations, but the DOJ balked and Judge Noreika called the proposed deal "not standard" and "different from what I normally see," so it was rejected.

Now it is all starting to make sense.
