Hunter Biden Asks for Federal Gun Charges to be Dismissed, Claims He Has Immunity; Hunter Biden Is So Used To Being Above The Law, He’s Citing A Rejected Plea Deal To Claim ‘Immunity’

Hunter Biden asks for federal gun charges to be dismissed, claims he has immunity:
First son Hunter Biden is asking for federal gun charges he pleaded not guilty to earlier this week to be dismissed, claiming he has immunity against the indictment stemming from an earlier plea agreement with prosecutors.
Defense attorneys Abbe Lowell and Richard Jones said a July diversion agreement “that both parties signed remains in force, and he will seek to dismiss the Indictment against him pursuant to the immunity provisions of that Agreement,” according to a Friday court filing.
The attorneys argued the “only charge” special counsel David Weiss “was permitted to bring” as part of the diversion agreement were tax charges that have since been dismissed after the first son’s plea deal blew up in court.
“If the Special Counsel no longer wishes to pursue that charge, it has the right to do that,” Lowell and Jones wrote.
Weiss indicted Hunter Biden last month on three counts of making false statements about his drug use when purchasing a gun in 2018.
The first son faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Hunter’s defense team accused federal prosecutors in August of having reneged on the original plea agreement, which they said remained “valid” and “binding” despite its spectacular implosion on July 26 in Delaware court.
Weiss’ team denied that Hunter’s agreement remained “in effect,” saying defense lawyers had “cobbled together snippets” from the hearing transcript to make their case and that neither the judge nor the probation officer had approved the deal. --->READ MORE HERE
Hunter Biden Is So Used To Being Above The Law, He’s Citing A Rejected Plea Deal To Claim ‘Immunity’:
Hunter Biden asked a federal court to dismiss three felony gun charges brought against him by Special Counsel David Weiss on Thursday. The president’s son previously pleaded not guilty to the charges on Tuesday.
Last month, Weiss slapped Hunter with three felonies related to his unlawful purchase of a firearm in 2018. The counts specifically allege that Hunter lied on the background check form required to purchase the gun and possessed the firearm “while he was addicted to and using illicit substances.”
It’s important to note that Weiss intentionally postponed an inquiry into Hunter’s allegedly criminal activities because he believed it would hamper then-candidate Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential aspirations.
In their Thursday court filing, Abbe Lowell and Richard Jones Jr., Hunter’s attorneys, said that they “will seek to dismiss” the felony gun charges against their client “pursuant to the immunity provisions” of a diversion agreement agreed to by both parties earlier this summer, which Lowell and Jones argue grants Hunter immunity from such charges. That agreement came alongside a separate set of indictments filed against Hunter by Weiss in June, which included two misdemeanor tax charges and a felony charge for possessing a firearm while being an unlawful drug user and addict. --->READ MORE HERE
