BREAKING: DOJ Says Hunter Biden Will Plead Guilty To Charges In Sweetheart Deal To Avoid Prison

Washington, DC – The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, will plead guilty to two tax offenses and has struck a plea deal on his federal gun charges that lets him avoid time behind bars.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, the DOJ agreed to recommend probation for the two counts of failing to pay his taxes in a timely manner in 2017 and 2018,  reported.

The plea deal also allowed Hunter Biden to avoid a felony charge of lying about his drug use on a federal firearms application when he purchased a handgun, The New York Times reported.

While the judge will make the final determination on Hunter Biden’s sentence, it’s believed that the First Son negotiated a deal that will allow him to avoid going to prison.

Under the terms of the deal, Hunter Biden must admit he illegally possessed a handgun because he was addicted to drugs at the time of purchase, The New York Times reported.

Then the President’s son must enter a diversion program as an alternative to incarceration.

GOP lawmakers were infuriated by the DOJ announcement, The New York Times reported.

U.S. Representative James Comer (R-Kentucky), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, called the plea agreement a “slap on the wrist” for Hunter Biden and said it would not affect the Congressional investigation.

“We will not rest until the full extent of President Biden’s involvement in the family’s schemes are revealed,” Comer said.

Former President Donald Trump, who was indicted on 37 federal charges last week, quickly released a statement that said the DOJ was targeting Republicans.

Many on social media agreed with President Trump.
