    Everyone knows this isn't about the charges. It's about president Biden being his father. Now, after crying for aSpecial Council for two years Republicans are crying because they got one. Appointed by trump but suddenly McCarthy says he can't be trusted. Maybe if they didn't spend so much time and money investigating Democrats, they could actually work on policy and get something done for the American people!

    After 5 years of investigation, did Weiss find new Information? Or just pressured to become special council? Either way, carry on & let us know if you find anything that pertains to someone other than this private citizen.

    Too bad for Hunter Biden that he has to be prosecuted so as not to show favoritism toward the left.

    I'm fine with this, but not sure why Weiss asked to be made a Special Counsel now after 5 years of investigating. If Weiss was ready to cut a plea deal a few weeks back, does he have new evidence suddenly and want to investigate or charge more? Or is this because of pressure from the GOP? 

    I support equal justice for all. Hunter Biden should not be exempt from justice for any crimes he has committed, and he should be investigated thoroughly...just as any member of the Trump family should be investigated thoroughly and face accountability for their crimes.

    Guess who else knowingly lied on state and federal forms?

    ...and they weren't in a drug addiction meltdown. It was just how they conduct their business.

    Much ado about nothing

    Only purpose is to deflect attention from the republicans for their numerous crimes

    you really want to investigate something meaningful? How about kushners grab for $2 bil from the saudis! 

    and thats just the tip of the iceberg

    It was a waste of a trial. The man lied and it was open and shut. He was acting as an addict who is currently clean and sober. He had no real defense to the chstges

    While this is a positive development, when the justice department takes everything they allowed the statutes of limitations expire for Biden's benefit and charge him and his co-criminals then the justice department will show they have treated hunter equally. 

    if they cannot figure out how to make that happen, Alvin Bragg should join their team to explain it to them

    The conviction of the US President's son on felony charges is a remarkable event that highlights the impartiality of the justice system. With the previous president having been found guilty of more than ten times as many crimes, these developments intensify discussions about accountability and legal integrity at the highest levels of government. Both cases serve as poignant reminders that legal accountability extends to all, regardless of status or position. The debate over whether the former president should still run for office after being found guilty of numerous felonies is intensifying. Some argue that these convictions should disqualify him from public office, citing the need for leaders to uphold the highest ethical standards. Others contend that legal guilt does not necessarily preclude the ability to serve, and that the ultimate decision should rest with the voters. This controversy raises critical questions about the intersection of legal accountability and democratic choice in American politics. In my view, the current president's actions after his son was found guilty demonstrate respect for the legal system and serve to uphold the rule of law in the United States. The former president's actions, on the other hand, further demonstrate his disregard for the basic principles of our country and prove that he is completely unworthy of holding office. If his party had any sense of decency, they would withdraw their support and present a worthy candidate to the voters of the United States.

    If Joe Smith was charged with the same crimes it never would have risen to the heights this case did.....all because his last name is Biden.  The court system has done it's job and Biden can appeal....but Joe Smith probably would have been given a deal with probation....There are 3 levels of justice, one for the poor, one for the powerful and rich and one for families of politicians...

     Again, Hunter is a private citizen, not a government official. His father, myself, and most everyone accepts the outcome of this judicial process. The only headspinner, is the absolute jubilant celebration & belief in the courts by Republicans juxtaposed by the outcome of tRump's hush money case.  

     

    The Republicans are eroding faith in all of our institutions by only believing outcomes that benefit them. If you know history, you know this is how the greatest civilizations in the past  meet their end.

    Right smack on the heels of the Hunter Biden conviction. The Supreme Court tells America it's OK for everyone to own a machine gun clearance. Thomas comes right out and says it! You can bring a submachine gun now anywhere except for into a Republican political event that's where the Republicans have taken this country, they don't give a crap about all the children that have been slaughtered in schools with AR15s

    now they want even more slaughtered by making them machine guns.

    this is where Donald Trump and the Republican party have taken America today. Vote these idiots out before they kill all of our children.

    You can see how much this platform is run by wingnut liberals.  The crackhead lied on his gun background check application. 

     

    His father and his corrupt doj tried to make this go away and luckily a federal judge said nope.

    When sentencing is done we will know if the results of this trial are any different than the plea deal negotiated last year based on typical charges and sentencing, or whether this trial was a waste of time show trial for MAGA campaign messaging and fund raising.

    Lying on gun forms rarely results in a trial unless a crime was committed with the gun. Nor does back payment of taxes if paid late with penalties or a payment plan is in place.

    MAGA wasting Cobgressional time in investigations, DOJ time and Delaware Court time.

    The Biden's followed rule of law despite all this.

    Contrast couldn't be starker between the 2 choices in leadership for 2024 Presidential and Congressional elections. Do folks want Congress & President to address actual problems (climate change, criminal justice reform, education, fair elections, gun safety, reproductive freedom, etc) or show trials, campaign PR and fund raising? 

    "In the 2019 fiscal year, when Hunter Biden purchased his gun, federal prosecutors received 478 referrals for lying on Form 4473 — and filed just 298 cases."


    "A 1990 Justice Department study noted how difficult it was to bring cases against people who falsely answer questions on the form, especially because there is no paper trail for drug abusers like there is for felons."

    “Typically, such agreements call for the related criminal charge to be dismissed if a defendant complies with the conditions of the deal for a set period of time.”

    ““… the Justice Department would recommend probation for the tax charges, meaning Hunter Biden will not face time behind bars. But the decision to go along with any deal is up to the judge.”

    “two misdemeanor tax charges relate to his willful failure to pay taxes for 2017 and 2018. A filingindicates Hunter Biden had more than $1.5 million in income each year. He has since fully repaid back taxes and fines, including $2 million reportedly paid to the federal government last year,”

    “The investigation was led by Weiss, who was appointed by then-President Donald Trump in 2018.”

    “President Biden kept Weiss in the position, apparently to avoid even the appearance of interference in the ongoing investigation into the president's son. The Justice Department has gone to great lengths to protect Weiss's independence, even as it was sharply criticized by Republican lawmakers and others about why the probe had dragged on for so long.”

    “A grand jury empaneled in Delaware reportedly heard testimony from multiple witnesses over the course of their probe, including some of Hunter Biden's business partners and a woman who had a child by Hunter Biden out of wedlock.”

    “in 2022 paid federal income taxes he had failed to previously pay for 2017 and 2018. That move was seen as part of an effort to limit his chances of being criminally charged in the case and to limit any possible sentence if he was charged.”

    “people who are unable to pay a tax bill, but are willing to work with the government to resolve the issue, are not headed to jail. There are several steps between missing a tax payment and jail, and each of those steps includes an opportunity to resolve your tax problems without facing incarceration.”

    “The key is taking responsibility. If you are contacted by the IRS, respond promptly. If you are in need of an alternative to paying a large tax bill, the IRS may be willing to make a payment plan or settle for less than the total amount you owe.”

    “Hunter Biden also faces a GOP-led congressional investigation into what House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer says are the Biden family's "shady business deals."

    if Hunter Biden has broken the law then he needs to own up to his sentence. the same is true for Trump. he needs to own up to his recent felony charges as well. NONE OF US IS ABOVE THE LAW.  

    the fact that President Biden will not pardon Hunter shows his integrity. 

     

    I urge my IN Senators to support respect of our Laws & Judicial system since candidate Trump is not doing so.

    H. Biden is an addicted. He has to face the consequences of his action which was lying about drug use in order to purchase a gun.

    They found him guilty. President Biden accepted the verdict like a responsible adult.

    No one from the family made derogatory comments to the judge, prosecutor, or their family.

    Everyone must follow the law.

    Biden has not claim immunity like the clown nor will he pardon his son.

    I mean, we knew he was guilty, right? Like he was originally going to plead guity to the charges. So it's not exactly a coup on the part of the prosecution or Republicans.

    I mean, given the number of times people actually get prosecuted for this particular crime, the whole thing's kinda ridiculous. It will be fun watching Republicans argue against the 2nd Amendment on his appeal.

    That said, he's the son of the President, and holds no office whatsoever. It's not quite the equivalent of 34 felony convictions for the presumptive Republican nominee.
