America First Legal Reacts to Hunter Biden’s Sweetheart Plea Deal with the Department of Justice

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Hunter Biden agreed to plead guilty in a federal income tax and gun case. 

According to Fox News, Hunter “will plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax. Hunter Biden also agreed to enter into a pretrial diversion agreement regarding a separate charge of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.” This sweetheart deal, seemingly designed to protect Joe Biden and his family’s influence-peddling business with, among others, the Chinese Communist Party and Ukrainian oligarchs, is a diversion from the Bidens’ potentially historic bribery scheme

Since its inception, America First Legal (AFL) has fought to protect equal justice and the rule of law. This is why AFL sued the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for illegally concealing records from Joe Biden’s time as Vice President and exposed devastating facts:

  • Hunter Biden advised then-Vice President Biden on China and Africa and had unrestricted access to the Obama White House. 
  • There is substantial evidence that Hunter’s personal business activities comingled with Joe Biden’s official business as early as Biden’s first year as Vice President. 
  • There was a close working relationship between Vice President Biden’s office, his son’s business partners at Rosemont Seneca, and the mainstream media.
  • There is substantial evidence linking Joe Biden to Hunter’s payments from Ukraine.
  • Hunter Biden should have registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Even the Obama Administration had concerns about Biden’s Burisma entanglements.

The Department of Justice’s sham plea deal with the Biden family is simply another illustration that the justice system has been weaponized to protect those who are part of the governing regime and imprison those who are viewed as enemies of the political left:

The left’s ongoing assault on our Constitution, the ruling elite’s systemic corruption, and the Deep State’s double standards and contempt for equal justice under the law, undermine public faith in our government, erode our nation’s stability, and endanger every citizen. America First Legal will continue to fight for the American people, to expose Biden’s corruption, and to hold the Washington elites accountable. 

Statement from Reed D. Rubinstein, America First Legal Senior Counselor and Director of Oversight and Investigations:

“The very worst form of injustice is pretended justice. But Hunter Biden’s plea deal is exactly that; a performative exercise in pretended justice demonstrating, yet again, that under the Biden Administration, justice is anything but blind. Shamefully, there is a double standard at work, one for the connected and favored, and another for everyone else, because the ruling class and its allies have repudiated the rule of law.” said Reed D. Rubinstein.
