🔨💼 Hunter Biden Pleads ‘Guilty’ in Court, But Where’s The Orange Jumpsuit? 🤔
Biden’s progeny, Hunter Biden, has got a date with destiny set for July 26 📆. He’s expected to plead guilty to tax evasion and a gun possession charge, with likely probation looming. Critics are left wondering if his father’s presidency is getting him an easy out, and are we all playing in a game where the rules ain’t the same for everyone? 🎭💰🔫
So, here’s a cliffhanger for you folks. Hunter Biden, son of POTUS, Joe Biden, is setting foot in the courtroom on July 26 in his beloved hometown, Wilmington, Delaware. He’s set to plead guilty to charges related to unpaid taxes from 2017 and 2018, and a felony for possessing a gun as a drug user 🏛️💸🔫.
Word is, he’ll most likely score a probation sentence, leaving a lot of attorneys in disbelief, arguing their clients have faced much stiffer penalties for the same crimes. Isn’t it strange that the same rule book seems to have different print for different people? 🤷♂️
US District Judge Maryellen Noreika, a pick of ex-President Donald Trump, will oversee the hearing. Yet, it remains hazy whether Hunter will receive his sentence on the day, or if Judge Noreika will schedule another appearance for the penalty announcement. A suspense-filled TV drama, isn’t it? 🕵️♀️
Here’s where it gets interesting. Some legal critics suggest that opposition can throw a wrench in the plea deal process by asking Judge Noreika to abandon the plan. The arrangement remains uncertain until approved by the judge. Could this be the plot twist we didn’t see coming? 🔄
Hunter’s agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges and a felony count for being a drug user in possession of a firearm, which he acquired in 2018 by fibbing about his drug usage on a federal gun-purchase form. The gun charge will reportedly be wiped off after two years of probation, as per the deal 📄.
Comparatively, similar tax and firearms charges usually lead to jail time. Critics argue that despite evidence suggesting potential money laundering, drug crimes, and work as an unregistered lobbyist, Hunter hasn’t been charged for these crimes. How is that for a plot hole, folks? 🕳️
Hunter’s attorney, Chris Clark, claims that the probe on his client is “resolved” and insists that the notorious laptop, seized by the FBI in December 2019, had no role in the charges. Is this a case of convenient amnesia or is there more to this story? 💼🖥️
In a sensational development, Hunter reportedly borrowed $2 million last year from a Hollywood lawyer to clear his tax bill earned from countries like China, Romania, and Ukraine. Still, this doesn’t absolve him from the legal implications of the initial nonpayment 💰🌏.
Meanwhile, there are whispers of Joe and Hunter Biden’s involvement in an alleged $10 million bribery scheme with a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma. But that’s a chapter for another time, or is it? 🇺🇦💵
Now, as we await Hunter’s day in court, we’re left to ponder – is the scales of justice balanced for everyone? Is there a blindfolded Lady Justice out there, or are we all part of a different playbook? 🧐 What do you think, folks? Is Hunter Biden’s case a one-off,
