The Biden family thought they could get away with everything. But a reckoning is on the horizon.
And Biden just confessed his guilt involving Hunter in a stunning report.
According to a story, President Biden has privately expressed sorrow about Hunter Biden’s legal difficulties, telling close allies that he believes his son would not be facing federal prosecutions if he had not ran for office in 2020.
According to Axios, “in private, no issue is more likely to anger or sadden President Biden than attacks on his son,” with people close to the 81-year-old president seeing that his “moods shift” when there is bad news about Hunter.
Few people in the president’s closest circle “feel free to discuss Hunter’s situation with the president” because they are afraid it will “prompt both fury and dejection,” according to the site.
The Justice Department investigation into the 53-year-old first son has also “strained” the president’s relationship with Attorney General Merrick Garland, the report notes, describing it as “frigid” after Special Counsel David Weiss brought criminal charges against Hunter for allegedly lying about his drug use when he bought a firearm and failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes.
People close to the president have “fumed” at Garland for granting Weiss special counsel status to investigate Hunter, comparing him to former FBI Director James Comey, arguing that both are “obsessed with the appearance of having integrity rather than just trying to make the right decision,” according to the outlet.
Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, contended Monday, similar to the president, that his client was indicted “because he is the president’s son.”
“Republicans…have tried and tried to say that President Biden has done something wrong. They can’t find a shred of evidence,” Lowell said during an interview with MSNBC.
“What they’ve successfully done…is basically saying, ‘OK, I can’t get the president, so I’ll besmirch his son in a way that suggests that there’s something going on between the two of them.”
Last week, Biden referred to his father’s sadness about his legal problems, accusing The Washington Post and other media sources of attempting to “kill” him in order to undermine his father’s presidency.
“What they’re trying to do is they’re trying to kill me,” Biden said during an interview with podcaster and vegan techno DJ Moby, “knowing that it will be a pain greater than my father could be able to handle, and so therefore destroying a presidency in that way.”
The first son has been subpoenaed by House Republicans overseeing President Biden’s impeachment investigation, with a closed-door deposition before lawmakers scheduled for this past Wednesday.
However, Hunter appeared on Capitol Hill with other plans.
Instead of following the rules laid out by the subpoena, Hunter demanded testifying in public.
In the afternoon, James Comer and Jim Jordan released a statement saying Hunter Biden had “defied lawful subpoenas and we will now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings.”
If convicted on all nine counts of his previous alleged crimes, including three felonies, connected to his alleged failure to pay taxes during a four-year period, Biden risks 17 years in jail.
In addition, he faces up to 25 years in jail on the three felony charges in the firearms case.
