Hunter Biden
The deal ends a long-running Justice Department investigation into Joe Biden’s second son.

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter has been charged with failing to pay federal income tax and illegally possessing a weapon and has reached an agreement with the Justice Department, according to letter filed in U.S. District Court in Delaware.

As part of the agreement, made public Tuesday, Hunter Biden will plead guilty to misdemeanor tax offenses and is expected to reach an agreement with prosecutors on the felony charge of illegally possessing a firearm as a drug user. It is somewhat unusual to resolve a federal criminal case at the same time the charges are filed in court, though it is not totally unheard of.

The deal ends a long-running Justice Department investigation into Biden’s second son, who has acknowledged struggling with addiction following the 2015 death of his brother Beau Biden. It also averts a trial that would have generated days or weeks or distracting headlines for a White House that has strenuously sought to keep its distance from the Justice Department.

The news comes as congressional Republicans pursue their own investigations into nearly every facet of Hunter Biden’s business dealings, including examining foreign payments and other aspects of his finances. It also comes days after a 37-count indictment came down against former President Donald Trump for mishandling classified documents on his Florida estate, another case with even more dramatic political implications.

Joe Biden has also faced questions about his son’s business dealings and drug addiction.

    Good morning America,
    Just wondering:
    Would one of Donald Trump’s childern receive the same soft stroke of justice?
    Or has our once great nation decended so far down the P00P H0LE as to have a two tiered system of justice for the two major political parties?
    Your comments are welcome,

      If the Biden administration launches an investigation into a Trump child, we’ll find out in 5 years like with this investigation Trump launched into Biden’s child. If you’re unhappy about the outcome, talk to Trump. It was his investigator who was on the USA’s dime investigating a personal grievance of Trump’s. It was Trump’s investigator that accepted the guilty pleas. What more do you want than guilty pleas out of Biden Jr? You want him to plead guilty to stuff he was not charged with after five years of investigation turned up a junkie when everybody already knew he was a junkie? LOL at Trump and his failed investigation that turned up nothin’ much. Rhonda would have done much better, of course, according to Rhonda later today if anyone thinks to ask their opinion of it like if Rhonda was relevant.

      Earl: would another rich famous white person get the same deal for the same charges? You’re dang right they would! And if you think otherwise you are a fool and a Fox News watching automaton.

      Trump’s children don’t even get charged for the bribes and kickbacks they’ve taken from the Saudis and Chinese .

        Don’t forget Persident Trump and his sweet golf course deal that brings PGA tours back to Trump owned facilities via the magic of Saudi Arabia’s billions of dollars for …. “golf sportwashing,” lol. It’s not sports washing. It’s $$$$ to Trump for whatever Trump did for Saudi Arabia while he was in office.

      Biden Jr must have missed the “It’s a politically motivated witch hunt” memo. Confessing and pleading guilt like a decent human, what the hell with these Democrats. lol /s

      Hi Earl, Biden Junior admitted guilt to the stuff Trump’s guy at the DoJ charged him with after a five year investigation. That makes for “end of story.” Finally no more listening to people going after the President’s child like they’re all Catholic priest and scout masters.

      Hopefully some at the GOP will finally get a clue and perhaps launch an investigation to see why Trump wasted five years of DoJ time and salary for such trivial charges (relative to a 5 year DoJ investigation.)

      I say investigate Trumps investigation of Biden Junior for being the colossal waste of tax money. Or start a new game show to see which GOP can waste the most tax money on nonsense? Rhonda would be a very strong contender to win that contest.

      My guess is that Trump needed to give the DoJ something to do to keep them busy so they wouldn’t notice all the shit Trump was doing.

      It is critically important to the USA that we investigate Trumps’ investigation of Biden Junior. Donald could of got nothin berders up at Mickey D’s with Ronald and MC connell, so why waste 5 years of DoJ on geting nothin berders? The only answer can be: distraction and diversion of investigatory resources. Keeping ’em busy.

      If only outlaws have guns, once they use their guns up, who will they steal more guns from?
