When allegations of a federal investigation into potential impropriety and criminal wrongdoing by Hunter Biden were raised last year, most of the mainstream media quickly wrote off such claims as disinformation and conspiracy theories.
Now, one of those formerly dismissive media outlets has reported that Hunter Biden was, in fact, the subject of a federal investigation that was placed on hold in the summer until after the 2020 presidential election, ostensibly to avoid having any sort of negative political impact, according to The Federalist.
That bombshell revelation, according to The Federalist’s senior editor Mollie Hemingway, offers proof of the increasingly obvious “two standards of justice” for the federal government’s Department of Justice (DOJ).
Prosecutors sat on the case
Politico reported Friday that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware had reached a point over the summer of 2020 when it was ready to move forward with grand jury subpoenas and search warrants in a federal probe of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and alleged tax avoidance.
However, Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss decided to wait until after the election to make any moves “that could alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election.”
In other words, federal prosecutors sat on the case and kept things quiet in order to protect then-candidate Joe Biden from the negative news that undoubtedly would have been seized upon by then-President Donald Trump and his supporters.
The article went on at great length to portray Weiss — who was appointed by Trump in 2017 on the recommendation of Delaware’s two Democratic senators, likely in the hope of garnering their support for other issues — as a “straight shooter” with a history of prosecuting corruption from both Democrats and Republicans.
From dismissal to confirmation
Politico noted that rumors of the federal probe into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and tax issues had begun to circulate shortly before the election when Hunter’s abandoned laptop had been discovered and some of its controversial contents were reported.
Yet, Politico had been one of the many left-leaning media outlets that had furiously worked to squash the negative news for the Biden family by trotting out the ridiculous and false narrative that all of the bad news about Hunter Biden was the result of Russian disinformation — a narrative that social media platforms exploited in order to censor and silence outlets and users that attempted to share the provably true information.

DOJ shields regime friends
The Federalist’s co-founder Sean Davis took to Twitter to remark that this Politico bombshell served as evidence that “DOJ’s only purpose anymore is to protect the ruling regime’s friends and persecute the regime’s political enemies. It is corrupt and unsalvageable.”
Politico added: “Concerns about affecting the presidential election loomed large when Weiss entertained arguments about advancing the probe, according to the person involved in the discussions. No matter what he did, the decision was sure to come under scrutiny for signs of politicization.” Indeed, and it is now crystal clear that the case was politicized in favor of Biden and against Trump by sitting on it quietly for months.
