“[M]y concern is that Weiss may have indicted Hunter Biden to protect him from being deposed in the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday" [James Comer said].

[Jake] Tapper, clearly taken aback, responded with sarcasm, "Ah! Yes! They indicted him to protect him. The classic rubric. He indicted him to protect him. I got it."

Comer continued, "Well, look, Jake, this whole thing's been about a cover-up. You know, you've got two serious—"

Interrupting, Tapper pressed, "That's why he indicted him? To protect him, to cover it up?"

Comer retorted, "Well, look, they indicted him on the least little thing — the gun charge and not paying taxes?"

Tapper countered, "He's facing like 17 additional years in prison."

Comer argued, "Yeah, but look what he's done! Anybody else —"

Tapper reminded Comer, "Those are felonies."



Additionally, Republicans are upset that Hunter and Joe Biden weren't charged with all the crimes they imagined but for which they have no evidence.

    To be correct. Three of the charges are felonies. Four are misdemeanors. And if you really think any pedobiden is going to spend any time in jail...


  2. by HatetheSwamp on December 9, 2023 3:41 am

    Curt,

    I agree with Comer. The DOJ has been brilliant in doing damage control for Hunter.

    Bottom line, though, the DOJ can do only so much.

    "That feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap's" vulnerability extends into the Legislative Branch.

    As Alan Dershowitz... pb's Legal Goober #1... said in that Fox video I posted yesterday, "there's no statute of limitations on impeachment." It'd be nice for the GOPs to filet Hunter in Committee testimony... and I'm certain that they'd take pleasure in it,...

    ...the truth is that they have all those laptop emails and documents also on the computers of Devon Archer and Rob Walker and Tony Bobulinski...ET. AL. As JJ Walker says, DYN-O-MITE!

    That worthless Dem political hack, Merrick Garland, has done tons but, in the end, the tsunami of evidence appears to be about to overwhelm the Former Truck Driver's gang.

    It won't be as fun to watch as if it would have been if Hunter were turning on the GOP spit...bit fun enuff, baha.

    And honestly curt, putting him "under investigation" is pretty airtight against him doing anything in congress. It doesn't have to go anywhere, they don't have to charge him, nothing. All they have to do is to keep him "under investigation" until November. After that, it's going to take the GOP time to realign after the election. They can "suspend" the investigation then, and if congress wants him back they'll activate it again.

    As long as DOJ is working for the pedojoe dictatorship, nothing will happen. And they'll stonewall every attempt at seeing a truthful investigation of any of the crime family. Just like they did the clitons.

    That is technically true (although it has been debated by some scholars) but a meaningless statement.

    The Constitution grants Congress authority to impeach and remove the President, Vice President, and
    other federal “civil Officers” for treason, bribery, or “other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” The constitution does not specify when it can be applied.

    Obviously, a former president cannot be removed from office, an office they no longer occupy.

    True.

    If outside of the office, the idea would be to remove them from history (of sorts). That meant much more to the founders than it does now. These are persons that had put their lives on the line to build a Republic. And they were proud of that. Now it would be pretty much worthless.

    Particularly in Trump's case. One of his superpowers is his lack of shame. He is unembarrassed by his two impeachments or any of his criminal indictments. His followers certainly don't care.

    There is nothing in Trump's actions or statements that indicate that he has concerns about his place in history. That's why he has a proclivity to lie for the sake of his immediate convenience--any future consequences of his lies can be addressed later.

    Trump lives in the here and now. His life has to be pure hell given the legal troubles he's dealing with in between all the campaigning which also has to be quite taxing for a man of his advanced weight age. But as long as he has his minions worshipping him like some of the people on this board - he's good.

    This op-ed explains Republican thinking.

    James Comer’s anti-Biden theories take a literally laughable turn
    It’s a tough sell when the GOP argues that failing to prosecute Hunter Biden is evidence of a cover-up, and prosecuting him is also evidence of a cover-up.

    MSNBC. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. The Holy Trinity!


  10. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2023 3:06 pm
    HtS,
    You may not like MSNBC but they pegged you. Or do you now disagree that failing to prosecute Hunter Biden is evidence of a cover-up, and prosecuting him is also evidence of a cover-up?

    Remember, we all know what you have posted in the past.


  11. by HatetheSwamp on December 11, 2023 3:15 pm

    David Weiss allowed the statute of limitations to expire on several possible charges more serious than what he's been charged with.

    I personally don't regard that as a cover-up. More like a politicized, kangaroo justice system in which well-connected rich white guys are permitted to break the law with impunity.

    Or, don't you agree?

    I'm curious. What do you think I've posted in the past?


  12. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2023 3:45 pm
    I don't "think" what you posted in the past, I know what you've posted.

    Now that Hunter has been indicted you agree with Comer in this thread (comment #2). You complained about a cover-up before Hunter was indicted. See link.

    I don't know if the statute of limitations came into play or not. I know David Weiss, a Republican, was appointed to investigate Hunter Biden by Bill Barr. The case began in November 2018 under the Trump Administration and the prosecutors, investigators, and key employees largely have remained the same. Many of the allegations regarding delay and slow-walking occurred under the Trump Administration and under a Trump-appointed IRS Commissioner.

    Show me calling it a cover-up.


  14. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2023 3:59 pm
    I already did. #2 above and at the link.

    pb saying "cover-up?"


  16. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2023 4:04 pm
    saying it and agreeing with Comer on it.


  17. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2023 4:10 pm
    HtS,
    Make it easy on your self and us. Just say:
    1. Failing to prosecute Hunter Biden is NOT evidence of a cover-up, and
    2. Prosecuting him is NOT evidence of a cover-up


  18. by HatetheSwamp on December 11, 2023 4:18 pm

    Easily done.

    Failing to prosecute Hunter Biden is NOT evidence of a cover-up.

    Prosecuting him is NOT evidence of a cover-up.

    It is, however, evidence of a politicized justice system which all too easily extends privilege to connected, rich white men.
