It's OK. If Trump is elected, he'll pardon Hunter... for the right amount of money.

Of course he will be convicted. And will be fined, and will pay the fine. End of story...

Critics doubt White House claim that President Biden won't pardon Hunter: 'Sure, sure...'
www.foxnews.com

... Social media users were skeptical of the claim that President Biden wouldn't issue a pardon for his son Hunter by the White House on Thursday.

Fox News' Mark Meredith asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the possibility as Hunter Biden faces ongoing legal issues and federal investigations.

"I know you said not a lot has changed since yesterday and it's a personal matter, but, from a presidential perspective, is there any possibility that the president would end up pardoning his son?" Meredith asked.

"No," Jean-Pierre replied.

When Meredith attempted to press further, she insisted, "I just said no. I just answered."

Various Twitter users expressed doubts on the response.

"Why would he need to? His own DOJ just tried to slip a blanket immunity deal past a federal judge," The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller tweeted. ...



An article full of silliness.

For example, the last sentence I quoted above...

(I summarize, and as I have posted here previously)

The Judge asked the defense if the immunity granted applied to future prosecutions. The defense said, "yes."

The Judge then asked the prosecutor the same question. The prosecutor said, "no."

So, the Judge then dismissed the plea deal because it appeared to the Judge that the prosecutor and the defense did not agree on it.

No one seemed to try to slip anything past anyone. Both sides answered honestly.

Of course, Republicans may be expecting Pres Biden to do what they think fmr Pres Trump would do.

But that may be the Republicans thinking that everyone is as unethical as they are.


Or, is there a better explanation?

What would you do DingDong?

Would you leave your son in prison when you had the power to pardon him?

"If my son is convicted I will not pardon him ... .until after the election.

Link? What are you referring to?

I have not seen where he said any of that.

When asked by interviewer David Muir of ABC if he would rule out pardoning Hunter Biden, the president said, "Yes."

I see no links to him saying, "If my son is convicted I will not pardon him."

Sound like another maga lie to me. Or perhaps an "alternate fact".

Prove me wrong please.

"Pro life, pro 1A, pro 2A" Republicans will support pardoning someone who murdered a protestor in cold blood, but not someone who violated a gun control law because his last name is Biden. You literally cannot wrap your head around how warped these people are. What a bunch of pathetic, morally bankrupt losers.

That's some good revisionist history right there. Special counsel sat on far more egregious crimes with heftier sentences so that the statute of limitations would expire. The original "plea deal" sheltered Hunter from the gun crime until the judge began asking questions and uncovered a plea deal so absurd the judge refused to accept it. This is the one crime Hunter has allegedly committed that has no ties to his father. Sentencing guidelines are such that he could see zero days in prison if convicted or up to 15 months.

Don't ask me, ask Trey Gowdy. He pointed out in his entire career he hadn't seen 10 cases brought like this. Over his entire career.

Go on, say it out loud: gun charges like this are almost never brought, unless the gun is used in furtherance of another crime.

Or, as in this case, if your last name is Biden.

By contrast, you still can't name a single indictment Trump faces which you or I could do without fear of legal repercussions. Meanwhile, lots of addicts have guns. And since MJ is still illegal on the federal level, that would include stoners as well.

You mean the guy who is in Rikers prison for tax evasion and lying didn't know he was committing tax evasion again?

Ignorance of The Law is no excuse. Especially for the (previous) guy who was literally responsible for faithfully enforcing The Law of The Land.

It's not the memo field on the check. That's not where expenses get categorized. The memo field on the check simply corroborates the felonies.

My guess at this point...

With all the apparent issues being raised by so many, oh so many, Monday morning quarterbacks, an appeal by fmr Pres Trump of his conviction should sail through quite easily.

Once again, I'll leave it up to the Court(s) of Justice and not the court of public opinion, to decide.

That's not how it works. It's the date of the agreement. In this case, the conspiracy. WHEN it's paid is moot, although you seem okay with the fact the checks were signed in the Oval Office.

"Non-violent Felonies". Minimum security or community service.

Same for Hunter, but Hunter gets a drug upgrade from minimum to low security and will have to complete rehab programs and be much more heavily supervised than Trump.

Funny system.
