(Athena Thorne – PJ Media) After much discussion and back-and-forth, a federal judge has declined to accept Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal. The deal would have allowed Biden to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges and would have disposed of a felony gun charge. The president’s son was expected to get off with a couple of years of probation and a promise not to drink or do drugs and to enter a diversion program to make the gun charges go away.
But Delaware Federal District Judge Maryellen Noreika objected to the nature of the deal from the beginning. She questioned lawyers during the hearing about her many concerns….
Why was the deal presented to her as a binding plea with global immunity, the terms of which she could not modify? Why was a tax plea linked to a firearms charge? What about FARA charges for Biden, who had clearly been acting as a foreign agent? Noreika asked if Hunter Biden was still under investigation and was told he was. She also noted that the diversion program deal was “unusual,” saying it included “non-standard terms” like “broad immunity” from other potential charges.
