The political and legal firestorms enveloping the Biden administration grow hotter by the day.
Joe Biden is in deep trouble.
And a federal prosecutor just dropped a breathtaking bombshell about the criminal charges against Joe Biden.
Former federal prosecutor and Fox News analyst Andrew McCarthy did not view Special Counsel David Weiss indicting Hunter Biden on federal gun charges as a move towards actually investigating Joe Biden or holding him accountable.
Instead, McCarthy told Fox News host Neil Cavuto that it looked like Weiss was continuing the Department of Justice coverup to protect Joe Biden from criminal charges of foreign influence peddling.
That’s because Weiss allowed the statute of limitations on the more serious charges of tax fraud involving Hunter Biden – which could implicate Joe Biden in these schemes – to expire.
“It’s the only charge that this prosecutor could’ve brought against Hunter in which Hunter’s father is not implicated,” McCarthy stated. “Everything else, the most important conduct in the case, all involves the sale of Joe Biden’s political influence. That is still out there, hasn’t been brought and as David pointed out, it’s been slow-walked so that even if he started to bring tax cases now, he made sure Weiss did, that the three years in which Joe Biden was Vice President in the Obama administration, those years are no longer open to be prosecuted.”
“Charges arising out of that have now been time barred,” McCarthy added.
Weiss only indicted Hunter Biden for lying on a federal background check form when he purchased a firearm in 2018 after a federal judge blew up his proposed sweetheart plea deal.
In that deal, Weiss agreed to seek no prison time if Hunter Biden pled guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and entered a pretrial diversion program that would allow the gun charges to disappear if he jumped through a couple of minor hoops.
Weiss also agreed to offer Hunter Biden lifetime immunity for any of the ongoing criminal investigations about foreign lobbying.
This effectively shut down the one investigation that could lead to Joe Biden.
But Weiss went back to square one after the judge rejected his obviously fraudulent deal.
And that meant indicting Hunter on the one case that did not involve Joe Biden as a new way to continue allowing the weaponized Department of Justice to protect him.
