More Drama In Hunter Biden Case After Comms Report From NYT’s

If you’ve been keeping up with the Hunter Biden legal case for what feels like an eternity, this weekend’s revelations should pique your interest.

The New York Times’ story over the weekend (yes I understand how crazy this sounds) and it’s worth the read. Politico did the same and boy have both reports created a maelstrom.

Both stories are based on confidential correspondence exchanged between the prosecutors and Hunter Biden’s legal team. It is plausible to speculate that these were intentionally leaked by Hunter’s team for their own motives. Following the breakdown of negotiations that resulted in the abandoned plea deal, Hunter’s legal team underwent a significant upheaval. His attorney, Abbe Lowell, launched an offensive against US Attorney and now Special Prosecutor, David Weiss. Consequently, new narratives concerning the internal dynamics of the prosecution team have emerged.

A recent stunning revelation has emerged: prior to the IRS agents exposing the truth, David Weiss had intended to dismiss all charges against Hunter Biden, allowing him to escape any consequences. Biden’s legal team sought a written agreement to guarantee absolute immunity from future prosecution, ultimately leading to the chaotic situation in which everyone now finds themselves.

Weiss was initially ready to let go of the issue completely. However, when the IRS whistleblowers stepped forward, he realized he required some form of plea from Biden to save face. Given the gravity of the accusations, he felt compelled to at least negotiate a favorable outcome for Hunter.

From The NYT’s:

Earlier this year, The Times found, Mr. Weiss appeared willing to forgo any prosecution of Mr. Biden at all, and his office came close to agreeing to end the investigation without requiring a guilty plea on any charges. But the correspondence reveals that his position, relayed through his staff, changed in the spring, around the time a pair of I.R.S. officials on the case accused the Justice Department of hamstringing the investigation. Mr. Weiss suddenly demanded that Mr. Biden plead guilty to committing tax offenses.

Now, the I.R.S. agents and their Republican allies say they believe the evidence they brought forward, at the precise time they did, played a role in influencing the outcome, a claim senior law enforcement officials dispute. While Mr. Biden’s legal team agrees that the I.R.S. agents affected the deal, his lawyers have contended to the Justice Department that by disclosing details about the investigation to Congress, they broke the law and should be prosecuted.

As evident, US Attorney David Weiss was indeed doing what many of us already suspected: attempting to protect Hunter Biden while safeguarding his own interests. Originally, his plan involved presenting an agreement that would never undergo judicial scrutiny, wherein Hunter would be spared prosecution if he maintained good behavior for a number of years. The initial version of the agreement, as detailed by Politico, essentially resembled a “get-out-of-jail-free” card.
