(ConservativeSense.com) – Hunter Biden rejected a narrowed version of the original plea deal on Wednesday, and the House Oversight Committee Chair believes it further validates the committee’s investigation in the first place.
The judge questioned if Hunter Biden’s plea deal covered any future potential charges by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and their continued investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden family and then shot it down.
Hunter Biden, who was charged with gun and tax violations, pleaded not guilty, rejecting a new plea deal the prosecutors laid out when the original one fell apart.
The judge questioned the sweetheart deal offered to Hunter Biden because it would shield him from potential future charges. Comer posted on Twitter that the judge “did the right thing and the sweetheart deal “belongs in the trash.”
When asked about the court results by Punchbowl News reporter Max Cohen, Comer said it gives “a lot more credibility” to their investigation. Come also added that the DOJ “must be held accountable” for covering up for the Biden family.
According to Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, the sweetheart deal was flawed, additional charges could happen. and it was “very telling” that the judge decided to intervene and not approve of “some sweeping blanket deal.” Hawley said it means there are “serious concerns” by the court of other potential charges and the “scope of the deal.”
The White House had the opposite reaction. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a press briefing opening statement that the first son “is a private citizen,” and that the case “was a personal matter” for Hunter Biden. She then told reporters to go to the Depart of Justice and Hunter Biden’s legal team to address any questions on the matter.
Karine Jean-Pierre was asked by a reporter if she could “say specifically” that Biden “did not have discussions of any kind” with his son about Hunter Biden’s “business dealings.” The Press Secretary said she didn’t have anything else to add to what was stated on Monday.
