Hunter Biden is the scandal that won’t go away.

He sits at the center of Joe Biden’s corruption scandals.

And John Kennedy asked this question about Hunter Biden that had Merrick Garland in panic mode.

Attorney General Garland ducks simple questions about Hunter Biden probe

Hunter Biden was under investigation for years for alleged financial crimes.

There were many odd developments in this case that saw the government try to protect him at every turn.

U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Attorney General Merrick Garland what should have been a simple question.

Who at the Department of Justice let the statute of limitations on felony tax evasion charges against Hunter Biden expire?

“Mr. Hunter Biden did not pay taxes on $1 million in 2014 and 2015, and he deducted payments from his income tax for personal expenses when he did file for hookers, for a Lamborghini, for strip clubs, for sex clubs, for porn website memberships,” Kennedy stated. “Why did the Department of Justice let the statute of limitations run so you can’t prosecute?”

Garland tried to duck the question by telling Kennedy that the Hunter Biden probe began in the Trump administration.

“As you well know, Senator, that investigation is being conducted by Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump to be the U.S. attorney in Delaware,” Garland responded, “Much of the investigation you’re talking about occurred during the previous administration under Mr. Weiss, Mr. Weiss has continued his investigations, is now a special counsel. He will issue a report, which will explain those.”

This dog didn’t hunt at all with Kennedy.

“So are you saying it’s Trump’s fault?” Kennedy shot back.

“No, I don’t know whether there’s fault or not. Mr. Weiss will explain this in his report,” Garland stated.

Americans know who is to blame.

Thanks to whistleblower testimony by IRS investigator Gary Shapley, Americans know it was the Biden Justice Department who slow-walked the Hunter Biden probe to let these felony charges go stale.

Shapley testified that in an October 7, 2022 meeting, U.S. Attorney David Weiss admitted he didn’t have full charging authority in the Hunter Biden case and he needed the cooperation of the Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney in California to bring felony charges against Hunter Biden.

Weiss revealed he never received this cooperation so the statute of limitations against Hunter Biden expired.

“This was troubling, because he stated that, if California does not support charging, he has no authority to charge in California,” a transcript of Shapley’s testimony reads. “Because it had been denied, he informed us the government would not be bringing charges against Hunter Biden for the 2014-2015 tax years, for which the statute of limitations were set to expire in one month. All of our years of effort getting to the bottom of the massive amounts of foreign money Hunter Biden received from Burisma and others during that period would be for nothing.”

This money Hunter Biden didn’t pay taxes on came from Ukraine and his spot on the Burisma board of directors when Joe Biden was Vice President.

Letting the statute of limitations expire was a simple trick the Department of Justice pulled to cut off an area of inquiry that could have led to ugly questions about President Joe Biden’s involvement in an alleged influence-peddling scheme.
