OH 'PLEA'SE! GOP Opens Investigation Into DOJ's 'Sweetheart' Plea Deal With Hunter

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.01.23

House Republicans want answers on Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal that imploded at the 11th hour after it was rejected by a federal judge.

The Committees on Judiciary, Ways and Means, and Oversight and Accountability have written a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking for additional information on the DOJ’s approval of the deal.

From Fox News:

Judge Maryellen Noreika of the United States District Court for the District of Delaware declined to accept the plea and pretrial diversion agreements with Hunter Biden during his first court appearance on Wednesday related to federal tax and gun charges he faces. She described the DOJ’s deal as “not standard” and “different from what I normally see.”

“Given recent unusual events relating to the Department’s plea and pretrial diversion agreements with Mr. Biden, we write to better understand the Department’s decision to sign off on such apparently atypical agreements,” the committee chairmen wrote.

The letter noted the multiple provisions within the agreement that were of concern to Noreika, and said they raise “serious concerns about how the Department has handled this matter.”

It also noted the “troubling” provision that would have prevented charges against Hunter Biden if he had violated the agreement, and accused the DOJ of potentially shielding him from congressional oversight by claiming investigations into the president’s son are still ongoing.

The DOJ must respond to the letter’s demands “no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 14, 2023.”
