Fox News contributor says president may be planning to pardon son

 May 8, 2023

The president raised eyebrows last week when he insisted that Hunter Biden "has done nothing wrong" and makes him "feel proud."

Fox News contributor Miranda Devine argued this weekend that the president's comments could mean he is planning to pardon his son. 

Devin suspects that Biden play the "sympathy card"

"That mythology of Joe Biden that's been around for more than four decades, which is that he's a lovely family man… moderate Democrat, lunch pail Joe, working-class Joe, the poorest man in Congress, and a wonderful family man full of empathy because of the tragedies in his own life. That's what he's playing on," Devine told "Fox & Friends Weekend" on Sunday.

"I think the end game is that he's setting up… framing this sympathy card so that when it comes time, perhaps in his lame duck period, that he will pardon Hunter and Americans will forgive him because they will say, well, Hunter was a drug addict and Joe just loves his family, and he's been through enough tragedy in his life," she continued. "Leave him alone."

"It's obviously rehearsed, and the plan for Joe Biden is to just remove himself entirely from the influence peddling operation that he was involved in with his son Hunter and his brother Jim, pretend that it has nothing to do with him, and that Hunter is just being persecuted in a political witch hunt," Devine said.

"That's probably the only way he can go, considering he's lied about his involvement since before the 2020 election," she insisted.

President says he has "faith" in his son

"And it will work for him with those Americans, and there are still many of them who believe that Joe Biden, that his only scene is that he loves his son too much," Devine suggested.

Joe Biden made the comments about his son this past Friday while speaking with Stephanie Ruhle during an appearance on MSBC's "The 11th Hour."

"My son has done nothing wrong," the president told Ruhle when she brought up the possibility that Hunter Biden could be prosecuted.

"I trust him. I have faith in him, and it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him," the president went on to add.

DOJ said to be close to a decision on whether to charge Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden became the focus of controversy after his abandoned laptop was found to contain evidence of drug use and prostitution along with business ties to hostile foreign countries.

What's more, there is also the possibility that he may face charges for lying on a federal firearms form when he purchased a handgun in 2018.

Fox News reported that last week that sources within the Department of Justice (DOJ) say that a decision will soon be reached on whether or not Hunter Biden will be prosecuted.
