Sen. Kennedy Grills AG Garland on Hunter Biden Case (Video)

Written by James Carter.

Republican Senator John Kennedy questioned Attorney General Merrick Garland about the DOJ’s handling of Hunter Biden’s alleged tax crimes.

DOJ’s Role in Hunter Biden’s Statute of Limitations

During a recent hearing, Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana pressed Attorney General Merrick Garland on why the Department of Justice allowed the statute of limitations to expire on potential tax charges against Hunter Biden. The discussion centered on Biden’s financial dealings with the Ukrainian energy firm, Burisma Holdings, which were not prosecuted due to time constraints.

Allegations Against Hunter Biden

Kennedy highlighted allegations that Hunter Biden failed to pay taxes on $1 million in income during 2014 and 2015. He also accused Biden of deducting personal expenses, including payments for “hookers, a Lamborghini, strip clubs, sex clubs, and porn website memberships.” The senator’s questioning aimed to uncover why the DOJ did not act in time to pursue these charges.

Garland’s Response

In response, Garland pointed to the independent investigation led by David Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, appointed by former President Donald Trump. Garland emphasized that Weiss, who was made special counsel, is expected to issue a report detailing his findings and the reasons behind any prosecutorial decisions.

Political Implications

The exchange between Kennedy and Garland highlighted ongoing tensions and accusations of political interference in the justice system. Kennedy suggested that the DOJ’s inaction might have political motivations, insinuating that it allowed Hunter Biden to evade accountability due to his status as the President’s son.

Our Take

The Department of Justice’s handling of the Hunter Biden case raises serious questions about fairness and accountability in our legal system. When allegations of tax evasion and improper deductions involve someone as closely related to the President as Hunter Biden, the American people expect thorough and unbiased investigation and prosecution. The apparent expiration of the statute of limitations without charges sends a troubling message about potential double standards in justice. As this situation continues to unfold, it will be crucial for all findings to be transparently shared with the public to restore trust in our institutions. Ensuring that no individual is above the law is foundational to the integrity of our republic.
