Tucker Cuts Loose on ‘Sweetheart’ Hunter Biden – Watch

In a segment on his show last night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson weighed in on the news that Hunter Biden has reached a plea deal with the Department of Justice.

Carlson was not impressed with the deal, which he called a “sweetheart” for the president’s son. He pointed out that Hunter Biden is facing only misdemeanor charges, and that he is likely to avoid jail time.

“This is a two-tiered system of justice,” Carlson said. “If you’re the son of the president, you can get away with anything. There has long been overwhelming evidence that Joe and Hunter Biden’s financial lives are not separate at all but deeply intertwined.”

Carlson also questioned why the DOJ did not investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China. He said that these deals raise serious questions about whether Hunter Biden used his father’s position to enrich himself.

“The American people deserve to know the truth about Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Carlson said. “But the DOJ is not interested in finding out the truth. They’re only interested in protecting the president’s family.”

Tucker also noted: “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. 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, 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. In fact, the Justice Department just baptized Hunter Biden, a lifetime of sins washed away in an instant.”

“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. 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 yet know exist.”
