Tucker Carlson Weighs In On Hunter Biden’s ‘Sweetheart Deal’

Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson weighed in on Hunter Biden’s “sweetheart deal” with Trump-appointed prosecutor David Weiss during Tuesday’s broadcast of “Tucker on Twitter.”

Biden agreed to plead guilty to charges of illegally purchasing a gun while under the influence of drugs and for failing to pay his taxes in 2017 and 2018. Carlson said Weiss prosecuted the younger Biden to make the 37-count indictment against former President Donald Trump appear fair and non-political.

“Donald Trump had an idea: ‘They’ll hit Hunter with something small to make their strike on me look fair.’ Trump wrote that about two weeks ago,” Carlson said. “And it turned out those were prescient words. This morning, Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing. Biden pled to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges and then entered a diversion on a federal gun charge. That’s it. As far as Merrick Garland’s Justice Department is concerned, Hunter Biden is done. There was no pre-dawn raid carried live simultaneously on CNN. There was no perp walk, no handcuffs, no press conference.”

“Above all, there was no felony. Hunter Biden, who broke federal gun laws, can still carry a gun. It’s like it all never happened,” he continued.

Carlson said the first son will never be charged for possessing and abandoning a laptop containing details about his business dealings with oil companies in Ukraine and China. The laptop was long discredited by federal agencies and corporate media outlets until March 2022, when The New York Times and The Washington Post confirmed its authenticity. Hunter’s lawyers admitted the data from the laptop was real in a February 2023 letter.

Carlson then pointed out Hunter’s plea deal signals how the people in charge will never face penalties for committing a crime.

“In the meantime, though, the question is what can we learn from Hunter Biden’s plea deal today? First off, the obvious: For the children of the people in charge, there are no penalties — there are only upsides,” Carlson said. “They’re princelings: They can do what they want. You are not. Therefore you can’t. So don’t get any ideas about cheating on your taxes or violating federal gun laws unless you want to celebrate next year’s Father’s Day through the glass of the visitor’s room. The rules definitely apply to you, including rules you don’t know yet exist.”

Carlson is in a legal battle with Fox News over the network accusing him of breaching his contract by posting “Tucker on Twitter.” The network is reportedly demanding Carlson not work until the $20 million contract’s expiration in January 2025.

Fox News sent Carlson a “cease and desist” letter June 12 in an attempt to prevent him from continuing his Twitter series. Carlson’s legal team defended his First Amendment right to openly express his opinions on social media and accused Fox News of breaching their contract.

Carlson previously told those close to him he is ready to unleash attacks on Fox News in order to be freed from the contract.

Federal Agents Believe They Have Enough Evidence To Charge Hunter Biden

Federal agents investigating Hunter Biden for tax and gun crimes believe they have enough evidence to charge him, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Biden has faced investigation in the Federal District of Delaware since 2018 over allegedly failing to pay taxes and lying on a federal firearm application. U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a holdover from the Trump administration, is conducting the investigation, and would be the person who decides whether or not to bring charges, according to The Washington Post.

“It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one,” Biden’s attorney said in a statement. “Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors.”

The gun charges would stem from a firearm application Biden submitted to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in 2018. Biden claimed on the application that he was not “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.” However, he later suggested in his memoir that he was using crack cocaine during the time period in question, writing that he was “smoking crack every 15 minutes.”

The Internal Revenue Service placed a $112,805 lien on Biden in 2015, the same time that he was serving on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Rosemont Seneca Bohai (RSB), a firm controlled by Biden’s business partner, paid him more than $700,000 between June 2014 and October 2015. Burisma received funds from RSB at the same time as it paid Biden.

Biden paid a “significant” amount in back taxes shortly after the 2020 election, The New York Times reported. In revealing that he was under investigation, Biden claimed that he was “confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately.”

Biden could also face charges related to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), which requires “agents of foreign principals… to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal.” He and business partner Tony Bobulinski texted about setting up a shell corporation that they believed could help them avoid registering under FARA. Biden conducted business with CEFC China Energy through the company Hudson West III in 2017 and 2018.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
