DOJ is violating its own internal policies on this case. The Ashcroft Memo requires they charge the “highest provable offense” and seek consistent sentences with other cases brought by DOJ. This prosecution is an absolute laughable joke. Thousands have been sent to prison for… https://t.co/Bi6iaRiDVD— Brett L. Tolman (@tolmanbrett) June 20, 2023
In an Op-Ed for the Federalist, Tolman called the charges “the kind of slap on the wrist most defendants can only dream about from inside a prison cell.” “That Hunter will walk away with few consequences where thousands have instead been left to languish in federal prisons in terrible conditions paints a picture of a two-tiered justice system where an accident of birth can matter more than the facts of a case,” he wrote. Fox News.
Thousands of people have been prosecuted under Project Safe Neighborhoods by DOJ. They brag about getting nearly 5 years of prison time on average for their gun cases. If they followed policy, Hunter would be looking at a minimum of 5 years in federal prison. But he’s a Biden.— Brett L. Tolman (@tolmanbrett) June 20, 2023
“You know, the majority of Americans polled believe that the indictment of Donald Trump was politically motivated and constitutes election interference. That shows you the level of distrust that the public has with the Department of Justice. This is not going to help,” he said. “You know, for the average citizen, when it came to Trump, they rolled out a B52, and this is going to look like a crop duster that, you know,” he said.

Turley said in the Hunter Biden case, “you have the son of the president who’s at the center of one of the greatest influence-peddling scandals in history” and at the end of it, “he’s going to walk away with a couple of misdemeanors and a gun charge that they can likely expunge. That’s not going to sit well.” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said the deal will not change House Republicans’ effort to dig up the facts about the Biden family’s finances, according to Newsweek. “It continues to show a two-tiered system in America. If you are the president’s leading political opponent [Donald Trump], the DOJ tries to literally put you in jail and give you prison. If you are the president’s son, you get a sweetheart deal,” he said. “Now, this does nothing to our investigation. It actually should enhance our investigation because the DOJ should not be able to withhold any information now, saying that it is pending investigation. They should be able to provide [Republican House Oversight Committee] Chairman [James] Comer with any information that he requires,” he said. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
