Judge drops Hunter Biden's tax charges as a formality for new case

Hunter Biden's two misdemeanor tax charges were dropped last week by Judge Maryellen Noreika, but it was not an occasion for Hunter to get excited about, as it was only a formality.

According to Breitbart, the charges were dropped so that new or similar charges can be filed as Hunter Biden's case moves to the next phase.

U.S. Attorney David Weiss, the special counsel now overseeing the junior Biden's case, requested last week that the charges be dropped.

"After the hearing, the parties continued negotiating but reached an impasse," Weiss wrote in court filings last week, The Hill reported. "A trial is therefore in order."

Breitbart noted:

Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss requested the dismissal last week in order to bring new charges in California or Washington, D.C., where Biden has lived, after a previous plea deal collapsed and remained unsalvageable.

Many have criticized U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland's appointment of Weiss as the special counsel in charge of Hunter Biden's case, as they do not believe Weiss will have what it takes to hold Hunter accountable for his crimes.

"Weiss is a sham prosecutor. He covered up everything prior to this," one X user wrote.

Many of those critics include Republicans who have lost faith in Weiss' ability to move forward given that he was part of negotiating the previous plea deal that fell apart in court after the structure of the deal was questioned by the judge.

"Weiss needs to be replaced with and independent counsel outside the government," another X user wrote.

Only time will tell if Hunter Biden is offered yet another sugary "sweetheart deal," or if he'll be held to the same account as any other American citizen facing such charges.
