What Do the Indictments of Hunter Biden Really Mean?

The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns equal justice before the law. There have been many questions about why the law is going against Donald Trump with so much power but looking the other way about crimes committed by the Biden family. However, there was a change today when special counsel – and friend of the Biden family – finally brought a formal indictment against Hunter Biden.

Out of all the possible matters for formal accusation, Weiss chose to bring a three-count indictment of Hunter Biden due to drug-related gun charges. He was also indicted on the one charge that is not related to his father, President Joe Biden. Fred Lucas explained the legal proceedings in his article published in The Daily Signal.

The three-count indictment accuses Hunter Biden of lying on a form to purchase a Colt Cobra revolver by not revealing his addiction to crack cocaine. Conviction on the three charges could bring Biden up to 25 years in prison.

The three federal charges come after an initial plea deal for misdemeanor charges over tax and gun charges fell apart.

The plea deal fell apart because U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika asked some questions in July about the scope of the deal. Disagreement between the defense lawyers and prosecutors caused the deal to collapse. Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty.

An interesting thing about this the accusation is that it was brought two days after the U.S. House of Representatives opened a formal impeachment inquiry targeting President Joe Biden. It also comes a week prior to the appearance of Attorney General Merrick Garland before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. Lucas shared the following post on X by House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY):

Today’s charges against Hunter Biden are a very small start, but unless U.S. Attorney Weiss investigates everyone involved in the fraud schemes and influence peddling, it will be clear President Biden’s DOJ [Department of Justice] is protecting Hunter Biden and the big guy.
