Tucker Carlson has broken his silence on the slap-on-the-wrist plea deal Hunter Biden was just gifted from his father’s the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Carlson trashed the decision and said President Donald Trump was right when he predicted what the weaponized DOJ would do with Hunter.
After listing some of the alleged crimes the Biden family has been accused of, Carlson said Trump was right to predict that “they will hit Hunter with something small to make their strike on me look fair.”
“This morning Hunter plead guilty to pretty much nothing,” Carlson said.
“No perp walk, no press conference,” he noted.
“It is all like it never happened.”
“Hunter Biden was a foreign agent and never registered.
“He sold access to his father.
“But they didn’t charge him for it and they never will.
“As in most of the developing world, it’s safer to be the president’s son than his opponent.”

House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said:
“These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation.
“We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed.
“Let’s be clear: the Department of Justice’s charges against President Biden’s son Hunter reveal a two-tiered system of justice.
“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.”
If you’re Biden’s leading political opponent, the DOJ will try to put you in prison.

Chris Clark, attorney for Hunter Biden said: “With the announcement of two agreements between my client, Hunter Biden, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware, it is my understanding that the five-year investigation into Hunter is resolved.
“Hunter will take responsibility for two instances of misdemeanor failure to file tax payments when due pursuant to a plea agreement.
“A firearm charge, which will be subject to a pretrial diversion agreement and will not be the subject of the plea agreement, will also be filed by the Government.
“I know Hunter believes it is important to take responsibility for these mistakes he made during a period of turmoil and addiction in his life. He looks forward to continuing his recovery and moving forward.”
