Democrat Congressman Admits Hunter Biden Broke The Law

During an interview on Friday, a Democrat in Congress said it is “clear” that Hunter Biden committed a crime.

On Friday night, Connecticut Congressman Jim Himes took aim at Republicans while also addressing the legal issues facing the president’s son.

“Let me say something that you never heard a Republican member of Congress say in the four years of the Trump administration, which is that if Hunter Biden broke the law, he should be prosecuted,” Himes said on MSNBC. “And it is clear that he broke the law with respect to taxes and possibly the ownership of a handgun. He should be held accountable for that.”

Himes said that Republicans were hypocritical for not condemning former President Donald Trump when he was convicted, but he said that Hunter Biden should be held responsible for his actions if they were committed with his father’s influence.

“If he traded on his father’s influence, he should be held accountable for that. And I’m emphasizing this because you never, ever heard a Republican say the same thing about Donald Trump or his family,” Himes argued.

The Democrat implied that any evidence of President Biden’s criminal collusion with his son should be treated seriously, despite his claim that no such evidence exists.

“Now, to the question about impeachment, there is today zero evidence, zero evidence that Joe Biden, the president of the United States, knew about what his son was doing. If, if he did know about it, if he participated in that, then that is a very different conversation,” Himes added.

On Wednesday, Hunter, who is still the subject of a federal investigation, pleaded not guilty to two counts of willful refusal to pay federal income tax. He had agreed to plead guilty, but that bargain has since fallen through.

The White House has stated that President Biden is supporting his son throughout the investigation. 

“Hunter Biden is a private citizen, and this was a personal matter for him. As we have said, the president, the first lady — they love their son and they support him as he continues to rebuild his life,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre previously said. “This case was handled independently, as all of you know, by the Justice Department under the leadership of a prosecutor appointed by the former president, President Trump.”
