    According to your source:
    U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss agreed to recommend to a judge that the 53-year-old Malibu, California, resident receive a sentence of probation for the tax crimes.

    Weiss was appointed to his post by then-President Donald Trump and was allowed to remain in that position after Joe Biden’s election to continue what has been a five-year criminal investigation of the president’s son.



    A five-year investigation by a Trump appointed prosecutor and that’s all he came up with?

    There are times, Curt, that I wonder if you joshin me. This time, I seriously HOPE that you are.

    I am serious. Tax avoidance and evasion is normal operating procedure for Trump. The gun application charge seems to violate the Second Amendment. Where does Constitution say drug addiction disqualifies a person’s rights?

    Where are the tales of bribery et cetera that you have regaled us with?

    "Trust me. The rage on the right is indescribable." -Hate

    Oh I do! Since it never takes anyone else's help to enrage you hair-trigger reactionaries about anything if your leadership puts you up to it.

    "I am serious. Tax avoidance and evasion is normal operating procedure for Trump.
    So you're saying that's okay then. That's a complete whataboutism.

    It really sickens me how you use your read of the law to specifically support this piece of sht. He pled guilty so they wouldn't have to bring his tax records to court, so no one else could see them and set him up for another felony hearing regarding how and where he got the money he didn't report.

    The gun application charge seems to violate the Second Amendment. Where does Constitution say drug addiction disqualifies a person’s rights?"

    It's in the laws that you support. Those restricting gun ownership.

    It's right there on the form when you buy a gun. Mostly because the majority of gun crimes involve the use and sale of drugs. That inner city black on black crime?
    Right next to the one that asks about domestic violence. Should beating your spouse be a disqualifier?
    Right next to the one that asks about being a felon. Should someone that murdered someone own a gun? Out of all the gun owners that disagree with the form (and therefore registration of guns), that is one that is the most universally accepted.
    How about if you're under the age of 18? That's not in the constitution either.

    OD,
    My point is that the two crimes Hunter plead guilty to is hardly the "Biden Crime Family" stuff we've been hearing about from you and HtS.

    Incidentally, had Trump returned the documents when requested or even plead guilty later, he wouldn't be looking at court date in Florida this August.

    That's what Gen. David Petraeus did. Under the terms of a plea deal, Petraeus, avoided jail time. He was sentenced to two years of probation and handed a $100,000 fine for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified material, in the form of notebooks he shared with his lover.

    I think that depends how much he's hiding in the plea deal. It might be millions. If it is, then what do you think? You keep making excuses for pedojoe and jr. Frankly, it's sickening. I still don't get it.

    "I think that depends how much he's hiding in the plea deal. It might be millions. If it is, then what do you think?" --OD

    I don't think Hunter's hiding anything. The Trump-appointed prosecutor and his team have been on Hunter Biden's case for five years. If there were crimes more serious than the tax and gun application charges, don't you think they would have charged him? I told you last week that it's not a crime to profit from family relationships. See link.


    Legal experts said first-time offenders are rarely prosecuted for both the gun and tax charges Biden faces.

    Justice Department data obtained by the Washington Post underscores the rarity of the gun charge: In the 2019 fiscal year, federal prosecutors received 478 referrals for lying on the federal form required to purchase a gun, but filed just 298 prosecutions, out of approximately 27 million background checks in a 12-month period (the Post notes the data does not include the number of convictions).

    Michael Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor and chair of the White Collar Criminal Defense & Government Investigations Practice at Cole Schotz, predicted Biden is also “not going to prison” for the tax charges, he told Reuters, given his status as a first-time offender, his willingness to plead guilty and the amount of back taxes he owed, which reportedly totalled $1.2 million that he has since paid back.

    Oh but he must be, Curt! You just don't understand.

    If Trump is being accused of heinous crimes and such, then Joe Biden and his son have just GOT to be as guilty of heinous crimes even far worse than anything Trump may be accused of or erroneously found guilty of. They just have to be criminals also. But Trump isn't of course.

    It's just a concrete and undeniable fact, Curt, that the Bidens must be criminals if Trump is accused of being one. It's only a matter of discovering what their crime was now.


    This is all backed up in the MAGA Republicans' sacred handbook, "Our Laws of the Universe":

    Law #8: "I know you are but what am I?"



  12. by Indy! on June 21, 2023 9:15 am
    The real crime with Hunter is the art sales. Definitely a back door for bribery.

    I just want to remind you guys that I warned you Biden-haters that you were setting yourselves up for disappoint. See link. I wrote last year:

    Calling Biden "the big guy" is not a crime. Capitalizing on a famous name is not a crime. Your side needs to prove a quid pro quo.


    John Durham is testifying before Congress today.
    Despite repeated claims from Trump and Republicans that the Biden administration has “weaponized” the Justice Department, Durham said there wasn’t any political interference with his work. He testified that Attorney General Merrick Garland, a Biden appointee, didn’t block any of his moves, didn’t reach out to discuss the probe, and didn’t meddle with the investigation.

    That stands in contrast with what Trump has promised to do if he wins back the White House next year: He said he’ll appoint a special prosecutor to “go after” Joe Biden and his family, directing an investigation against an opponent in a way that shatters longstanding norms, in place since the Watergate era, that have kept the White House away from specific criminal investigations.

    Calling Biden "the big guy" is not a crime. Capitalizing on a famous name is not a crime. Your side needs to prove a quid pro quo.

    You are completely avoiding context. "the big guy" is a link in emails and witnesses that link him with the corruption. Capitalizing on a famous name IS a crime if you are a politician and you (or family members use that name to gain favors in business. It's called nepotism. You may know private business that does it, but in (especially) federal government there's a whole manual that prohibits nepotism to the point where an employee cannot recommend any other person for a position where the one recommending could have influence over the decision.

    "Below is a condensed version of this topic. For complete guidance please refer to the House Ethics Manual, Chapter 7 on staff rights and duties.

    Federal law, at 5 U.S.C. § 3110, generally prohibits a federal official, including a Member of Congress, from appointing, promoting, or recommending for appointment or promotion any “relative” of the official to any agency or department over which the official exercises authority or control. The statute defines a relative, for these purposes, as "an individual who is related to the public official as father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, or half sister.""


    Joe over-paid at least two members of his family for contracts he was involved in securing as a VP. That is in direct violation of the federal ethics rules.
    HillStone International won a coveted government contract in part because the company has “the little brother of the vice president as a partner,” as David Richter, president of HillStone’s parent company explained to investors in a recent meeting reported on by Fox Business today.

    “Since November 2010, James Biden has been the executive vice president of Hill International’s housing subsidiary despite little if any documented work history in residential construction,” Fox explains. “And if the company’s projections are accurate, both Hill and Biden are on the verge of a huge payday, beneficiaries, some analysts believe, of James Biden’s connections to the Obama Administration through his older brother.”

    Hunter Biden didn't work for a federal agency or department.

    Hunter Biden was serving on Burisma’s board (supposedly consulting on corporate governance and transparency) when Zlochevsky allegedly paid a $7 million bribe to officials serving under Ukraine’s prosecutor general, Vitaly Yarema, to “shut the case against Zlochevsky.” Kent testified that this bribe occurred in December 2014 (seven months after Hunter joined Burisma’s board), and, after learning about it, he and the Resident Legal Advisor reported this allegation to the FBI.

     Hunter Biden was a U.S. Secret Service protectee from Jan. 29, 2009 to July 8, 2014. A day before his last trip as a protectee, Time published an article describing Burisma’s ramped up lobbying efforts to U.S. officials and Hunter’s involvement in Burisma’s board. Before ending his protective detail, Hunter Biden received Secret Service protection on trips to multiple foreign locations, including Moscow, Beijing, Doha, Paris, Seoul, Manila, Tokyo, Mexico City, Milan, Florence, Shanghai, Geneva, London, Dublin, Munich, Berlin, Bogota, Abu Dhabi, Nairobi, Hong Kong, Taipei, Buenos Aires,
    Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Brussels, Madrid, Mumbai and Lake Como.


    Also under 5 U.S.C. § 3110, are articles about a federal employee "arranging" contracts or work based on family ties or friendships. pedojoe should have recused himself from this contract process where he named his brother on a $1.5BIL contract in Iraq.

    1. Stay away from conflicting financial interests.
    It’s crucial to prevent awards from being made and handled due to “undo influence” on both the contractor and agency sides of the proposal discussion. (Or, to put it another way, financial crimes of some kind). You might get into all kinds of difficulties even by having the impression of improper behavior.

    To put it plainly: It is illegal to use your employment on a government contract for your own financial benefit, as well as the financial gain of your life spouse, business partner, children, or a potential future employer.

    Are we talking laws that prohibit nepotism or guidelines that frown on nepotism?

    Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner both worked as White House advisors. Then there is the $2 billion investment by the Saudi government into Jared Kushner's firm. This week Trump was brought into a deal by a Saudi real estate firm, Dar Al Arkan, which is closely intertwined with the Saudi government. Trump has been boosting the Saudi's LIV golf.

    Is that the sort of stuff you are talking about?


  18. by oldedude on June 21, 2023 8:21 pm
    And JFK had family in the Whitehouse. There's a way to do it, and a way not to. "Advisors" are in a different category. Advisors can be anyone. They are paid out of a fund by the government, but are not government employees.

    RFK being the "Attorney General" is not one of those positions. He was a government employee at the whim of the president. So there is an issue there, but no one cares now.

    I am also questioning the saudi money into kushner's company. Even if it's "clean" the appearance isn't very transparent. And if that's wrong, then pedojr is wrong. Choose. You can't be one ass riding two horses, chickiebabe.

    Using your personal relationship as an elected official to get family/friends jobs is also illegal. Domestically, it usually isn't that big of a thing (but excessive use can get you into trouble). Internationally, it is a big deal because these folks must register with FARA (DOJ) to work. There is doubt if pedojr was ever registered. And DOJ isn't saying anything.
