Judge Halts Pleas Deal When She Discovers This About The Hunter Case

The judge in the Hunter Biden case said Wednesday she is not ready to accept the plea deal struck between the president’s son and the Justice Department, and asked both parties to submit additional briefs and return to the court on a future date.

Judge Maryellen Noreika demanded that the lawyers from both sides make clear that the deal does not convey broad immunity offered to Biden from prosecution on his business dealings.

The stunning turnabout came after what was expected to be a routine plea hearing turned into a three-hour affair featuring hushed negotiations between lawyers and pointed questions from U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika.

“I cannot accept the plea agreement today,” she said, asking the parties to brief her on why she should accept it, meaning that Hunter Biden’s lawyers and prosecutors may yet persuade her to approve the deal as it was previously negotiated, or to alter it to a form she can accept. She said she did not want to “rubber stamp” a plea deal.

Rand Paul has a few thoughts about this.

Talking about fairness

As Charlie Kirk says:

So let me get this straight…

The DOJ tried to pull a fast one and immunize Hunter Biden from future criminal investigations via an unprecedented plea deal.

They DOJ has dismissed 6 of the 13 charges against Democrat super donor and fraudster Sam Bankman-Fried.

The DOJ let Hillary Clinton off scot-free despite deleting 40,000 subpeonaed emails.


The DOJ targets moms, Catholics, and pro-life activists

The DOJ has arrested 1,000+ J6 protesters including grandmas who took selfies in the Capitol

The DOJ wants to put Biden’s chief politcal rival in jail for 200+ years over a documents dispute

And now Jack Smith has added 3 new charges against Trump and even charged his maintenance man…

Equal justice!
