Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, made headlines this week for pleading guilty to gun crimes and tax evasion. But House Speaker Kevin McCarthy just turned his world upside down.
And Kevin McCarthy just threw a major wrench in Hunter Biden’s plea deal.
No American who has been paying attention over the past few years can doubt that Hunter Biden and the entire Biden family is corrupt.
And as the most powerful man on earth, Joe Biden should be scrutinized the highest degree over allegations of corrupt backroom deals.
They would do that to Trump if the roles were reversed.
But Democrats won’t. That’s why Kevin McCarthy just hit the Biden’s with a reality check they’ll never forget.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Tuesday that the Justice Department “should not be able to withhold” any papers from Congress in its investigations of President Joe Biden and his son, claiming a “pending” probe.
He stated to reporters:
My first reaction is it continues to show the two-tiered system in America. If you are the President’s leading political opponent, the DOJ tries to literally put you in jail and give you prison time. If you are the president’s son, you get a sweetheart deal.
Now, this does nothing to our investigation, and it actually should enhance our investigation because the DOJ should not be able to withhold any information now, saying that there’s a pending investigation. They should be able to provide Chairman Comer with any information that he requires.

While the United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, David Weiss, said in a statement that the federal investigation into Hunter Biden is still “ongoing,” a source told Politico that “the plea agreement is intended to be a comprehensive resolution of Hunter Biden’s potential legal liability in all matters investigated by federal authorities.”
Politico reports that:
Those matters include allegations Republicans have leveled in recent years that his business dealings and his well-compensated post on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma amounted to corruption or violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
‘This is the end of it,’ the person involved said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the private legal discussions.
Weiss’s office confirmed some details of the agreement in a press release that added, without elaborating: ‘The investigation is ongoing.’ It was not immediately clear what parts of the inquiry are continuing, but prosecutors could look at potential crimes or civil liability on the part of others who have come under scrutiny in the probe.
In his own statement Tuesday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) stated that the committee would continue its inquiry into the Bidens.
“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery. These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation,” he said.
“We will not rest until we know the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes,” he continued.
