I'm not going to sugar coat anything he did. It sounds like they've got him pretty dead to rights. I'm not going to declare that the charges are all imaginary and intended just to make Hunter and his dad look bad. From what I have seen of the evidence, it' seems very likely that Hunter is guilty of crimes and would actually deserve some prison time.
And if that happens, here's why I see it as a good thing...
• Biden won't pardon him.
• Biden won't be complaining about any fake prosecutions.
• Biden won't be attacking any judges or courtroom staff for being tools of his adversaries.
• Biden won't sic any of his deranged flying monkeys on any innocent people.
• Biden will dutifully accept the verdict of the court.
Right there, it will be plain for all to see the difference between a president who respects the law and one who doesn't. People will have a blatant example of what dedication to duty looks like from a president and how things are supposed to be and how our laws are supposed to work.
That is really going to mean a lot to people come election time.
Everyone knows that it's a foregone conclusion that if any of Trump's kids had gotten jail time on a federal rap while he was president, or if he is again, he wouldn't allow them to spend an hour in prison. He'd be pardoning them mid-way through his Big Mac. Regardless of whatever crime it was they were found guilty of. It wouldn't matter to him in the least. No child of his is going to spend any time in prison if there's anything he could do about it!
I mean, it's not much of a stretch to imagine. Since he's already declared that if reelected, he would pardon huge swaths of convicted violent criminals who aren't his kids, but who merely committed their violent crimes in the act of trying to help him hold onto power. Plus he already has a track record of pardoning convicted criminals whose crimes were only committed for his direct benefit. Someone like that is never going to let a child of theirs serve prison time if he has the power to free them.
So I feel for the Biden family. It's got to be a hard time for them. Hunter has led a very troubled life and has made many bad decisions in it. And there's nothing they can do about what he may be facing. After all, the law is the law.
That is... unless Trump gets reelected.
