Biden May Be Forced Into Extreme Measure to Keep Hunter Out of Prison

Published on

Jonathan Turley, a law professor at the George Washington University, believes that President Joe Biden must act swiftly to keep his son Hunter out of prison.

Turley presented the president with a “break the glass” alternative in a commentary for The Messenger in the event of a conviction. Hunter was only required to enter a guilty plea to two tax-related misdemeanors and accept a two-year deferral and eventual dismissal of a third gun-related charge if he maintained his drug-free status during his Wednesday court appearance.

In a federal courtroom in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika questioned the agreement’s broad immunity from future prosecution, which led to the agreement’s demise.

Despite U.S. Attorney David Weiss’ recommendation for probation without prison time, federal prosecutors denied the agreement contained any immunity from future prosecution provisions, such as violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, in response to Noreika’s questions.

Federal prosecutors informed the judge that additional offenses related to alleged FARA violations may be filed in the future, which alarmed Hunter Biden’s attorneys.

Declare vehemently, “Rip it up!” Christopher Clark, Biden’s counsel, reportedly made a statement regarding the plea agreement, as reported by ABC News.

He then reportedly stated, “As far as I’m concerned, the plea agreement is null and void,” eliciting audible murmurs from the jury chamber. Hunter Biden then stated that he would not pay the taxes.

The Western Journal then detailed the consequences for the first family should the case proceed to trial:

Conceivably the case could go to trial and Biden could be convicted. And during the course of the trial, many embarrassing revelations about President Joe Biden could emerge, particularly given recent whistleblower testimony before the House Oversight Committee.

The president and Hunter Biden have each been accused of taking $5 million bribes from the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma while the elder Biden was vice president, according to an FBI whistleblower form viewed by the Oversight Committee.

Joe Biden could use his presidential pardon power to make all this go away.

Even though Biden would never be found culpable by the Senate’s Democratic majority, this will not prevent the House from impeaching him. However, Turley noted in his column that Hunter’s shortcomings will be a political burden for his father.

The “break the glass option,” then, becomes this, Turley noted: “Joe Biden could pardon his son and then announce that he will not run for reelection.”

“Facing an impeachment inquiry, low public support, and a son in the legal dock, Biden could use the case to close out his political career,” Turley noted.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stated earlier this week that an impeachment investigation is more probable due to an increase in the amount of corruption information provided to Republican-controlled committees by FBI and IRS whistleblowers. One of the allegations against Biden is that, as vice president, he accepted a bribe from a Ukrainian official; the Constitution expressly specifies bribery as an impeachable felony.

A Biden pardon “would be what I consider another abuse of the pardon power for personal benefit,” Turley claimed. He continued by drawing a comparison to the day, January 20, 2001, when then-President Bill Clinton pardoned his half-brother, Roger Clinton, for drug charges.

“Biden could do the same by acknowledging that the pardoning of his son is a form of raw self-dealing. However, as he has said throughout the scandal, he loves his son and blames his crimes on his struggle with addiction and grieving,” Turley said.

“With that, Biden could bow out of the election without admitting (as many on both sides are saying) that old age has taken its toll on his mental and physical capacity. He would end his political career with an act as a father, which some would condemn but most would understand.”

The law professor pointed out that Biden could even give Hunter a “preemptive or prospective pardon” that “would effectively end any federal investigation.”
