It looks like Hunter is going to have to stand on his own two feet.
When the White House was asked if there was any way that Joe Biden would pardon Hunter, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shut that narrative right down, reported Fox News.
Now, I don’t know if that is because Hunter should his father out or if Joe thinks the DOJ is still going to be able to work out a sweetheart deal for Hunter.
After the plea deal fell apart, it was only natural to wonder if Joe Biden had one play left up his sleeve to protect Hunter Biden.
When a journalist asked about a possible pardon, KJP told them flat out, “NO.” When the reporter tried to get a follow-up question in, she just shut him down again, reported CNN.
Hunter’s plea deal fell apart because of the immunity that he was being offered by the Department of Justice, which was a clear favor for Biden.
The judge, however, tossed it out because of pending investigations.
Prosecutors were granting him broad immunity, in perpetuity, in a deal that no regular person, and for far lesser crimes, would have ever been given.
During the hearing, however, Hunter copped to accepting money directly from the Chinese, which Joe Biden has always stated never happened.
Hunter eventually pleaded “not guilty,” and a new deal will have to be worked out that will not include any future charges.
This could get really interesting because Hunter drew a Trump-appointed judge in the case, so he will get no favors from this court.
As part of his release, he is not permitted to consume any alcohol or drugs. If he does, he stands to go to prison.
I think it is time to head to DC to offer a bump to Hunter and maybe a few cocktails, hoping we can get him to fall off that wagon and put his butt in jail where it belongs.
