Hunter Biden’s been under criminal investigation for more than two years.
Leftists thought Biden was in the clear.
But now the FBI let something leak about Hunter Biden that is devastating news for Democrats.
The dam is beginning to burst
For two years there was nothing but radio silence from the Department of Justice and FBI on the status of the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.
That stood in stark contrast to the deluge of daily leaks from “sources close to the investigation” that filled the New York Times and Washington Post.
But on Thursday, the dam finally broke.
The Washington Post published a story reporting that the agents investigating Hunter Biden believed they built a prosecutable case against Joe Biden’s son on charges of tax evasion and making false statements on a federal background check form when he purchased a handgun in 2018.
“Federal agents investigating President Biden’s son Hunter have gathered what they believe is sufficient evidence to charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to people familiar with the case. The next step is for the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, a Trump administration holdover, to decide on whether to file such charges, these people said,” the Washington Post reported.
The irony is rich
This time, it was Democrats yelling about illegal leaks from the FBI.
“It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one,” Chris Clark said in a statement obtained by the Post. “Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors. As is proper and legally required, we believe the prosecutors in this case are diligently and thoroughly weighing not just evidence provided by agents, but also all the other witnesses in this case, including witnesses for the defense. That is the job of the prosecutors. They should not be pressured, rushed, or criticized for doing their job.”
The Post reported that a decision on charging Hunter Biden was imminent – meaning it would come down after the Midterm elections – and that the charging authority rested with the prosecutors at the Justice Department.
Now America will see if all the Democrats and media pundits who thundered that no one was above the law when it comes to Donald Trump will stick by that now that it’s Hunter Biden under a microscope.
