Hunter Judge Seems Skeptical of Defense’s Argument to Have Charges Dismissed

The clock is ticking for Hunter Biden.

A trial date has been set for his tax evasion case for late June.

So, Hunter’s attorneys are making a desperate attempt to have the charges dismissed by filing a slew of motions on Hunter’s behalf.

Time Running Out

Hunter Biden’s main attorney, Abbe Lowell, has filed eight motions with the court in an effort to have Hunter’s case dismissed.

Most of the motions made are concentrating on the idea that the DOJ was weaponized for political reasons.

The problem with that argument is twofold.

First, Hunter could have had a deal, but his attorneys postured and got greedy, looking for future amnesty for Hunter Biden on all other charges.

Second, it was not until Joe Biden took office that the special prosecutor in the case sought an indictment, a special prosecutor that was named by Biden AG Merrick Garland.

In the latest motion to dismiss the charges, Hunter’s attorneys argued, “This case follows a nearly six-year record of the DOJ changing its charging decisions and upping the ante on Mr. Biden in direct response to political pressure and its own self-interests.”

Judge Scarsi responded by saying their argument produced a lot of “smoke” without “fire.”

He added, “There doesn’t seem to be any evidence” that pressure from Republicans “influenced the prosecutors’ decision other than the timeline.”

Hunter will only have to wait about two weeks to find out the ruling, as Scarsi gave April 17 as the date of his decision on the motion.

Something tells me that the judge, who was appointed by Trump, is not buying the dismissal idea, having also set a trial date of June 20.

I find it pretty ironic that Trump, for the most part, has been getting Democrat-appointed judges, while Hunter keeps running into Trump-appointed judges.
