U. S. Attorney Admits He Declined to Prosecute Hunter for Tax Crimes
Over the last few months, Republican members of Congress have had whistleblowers come to them from all the different alphabet agencies in our government.
One of the reports found that the California US Attorney had refused to prosecute Hunter Biden for his tax crimes.
California U.S. Attorney Martin Estrada recently gave up the tapes on himself, admitting that was the case.
Let Him Slide
Recently, the House Judiciary Committee held a closed-door interview with Martin Estrada, the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California.
The transcript of that hearing was recently reviewed by the Daily Mail, and it was rather astounding what was said during the interview.
Estrada tried to blame being short-staffed for the reason that he did not want to prosecute Hunter Biden.
He stated, “I was down 40 AUSAs (Assistant U.S. Attorneys) at the time, so we were very resource-strapped.
“We were trying to hire as much as possible and had very limited resources. And every attorney you assign to a case means you can't do another case.
“And it seemed he (Weiss) didn't push back when I told him the situation, that we wouldn't be co-counseling, but he did express appreciation when I offered administrative support.”
Two IRS whistleblowers, Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, had previously testified that Hunter Biden had received special treatment during the investigation, and this pretty much proves that was the case.
Hunter has since been charged with felony gun charges, but that is all going to get pleaded out to lesser charges.
If you recall, the only reason this has not already been pleaded out was because the plea deal that had reportedly been agreed to by Special Counsel Weiss fell apart when the presiding judge tossed it out.
There has been mixed reporting on whether Weiss fully agreed to the deal, but there is no challenging the fact that Hunter’s tax violations were definitely going to be dismissed.
I have no doubt some mandates came down by the White House via Attorney General Merrick Garland in this case.
I believe he told them to make it look good, but in the end, Hunter needed to walk with as few legal repercussions as possible.
