Prosecutors Flip the Script, Say Hunter’s Attorneys Blew the Deal

Hunter Biden’s attorneys have been telling anyone that will slam a microphone in their faces that the prosecutors changed the deal on the fly, which is why it fell apart.

That, of course, is a complete and utter lie, so now the prosecuting attorneys have thrown around some mud.

On Monday, the special counsel filed a motion disputing the tale being told by Hunter’s attorneys, reported the New York Post.

Not True

The filing, in part, stated, “First, the Government did not ‘renege’ on the ‘previously agreed-upon Plea Agreement,’ as the Defendant [Hunter Biden] inaccurately asserts in the first substantive sentence of his response,” reported the Daily Caller.

It continued, “The Defendant chose to plead not guilty at the hearing on July 26, 2023, and U.S. Probation declined to approve the proposed diversion agreement at that hearing. Thus, neither proposed agreement entered into effect. Instead, as of the end of the hearing on July 26, the two proposed agreements were drafts that either party could propose changes to. And both parties did so following the hearing.

“The Government considered the Defendant’s proposals but did not believe they were in the best interests of the United States and offered counterproposals on July 31, 2023.

“The Defendant rejected these counterproposals on August 7, 2023. Seeing that the parties were at an impasse, the Government informed the Defendant, in writing on August 9, 2023, that it was withdrawing the most recent version of its proposed plea and diversion agreements.”

So, this filing changes everything about the way this story had been reported by the media thus far.

If I am reading that correctly, Weiss never agreed to future immunity for Hunter, and Judge Noreika clarified that future immunity would not be permitted.

Since Hunter’s team would not do a deal without immunity, he pleaded not guilty, and the deal went back to the drawing board.

For weeks, Weiss has been taking heat in the media for the “sweetheart” deal that he had allegedly worked out with Biden, but the reporting was completely wrong on that front, as was made clear in that filing.

The motion even addressed this issue, stating, “Obviously, the proposed plea agreement did not contain [immunity provision] from the diversion agreement, or anything like it. Therefore, it was not a promise contained within the proposed plea agreement.”

So, I will officially apologize to Weiss for my misreporting on the subject, but in my defense, that “version” of the story was what had been posted on virtually every mainstream media outlet, and nobody had countered the claim until this filing, at least not that I saw.

Regardless, the reporting was inaccurate and I own up to that.
