Judge under pressure to reject Hunter Biden plea deal amid growing evidence of DOJ interference

The judge overseeing Hunter Biden's plea deal is getting pressure from both pundits and politicians to reject it, as evidence of DOJ interference mounts. Hunter Biden must appear in federal court in Delaware before Trump-appointed U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika on July 26.

Two separate whistleblowers have come forward to say that they and others were stopped from investigating more serious allegations of tax evasion and from pursuing any part of the probe that seemed like it could involve President Joe Biden in any way.

“I don't understand how any judge could bless this plea agreement now that all of this evidence of obstruction and DOJ and FBI wrongdoing has surfaced,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told Just the News. “So, I hope this judge does reject this, and then insists and demands on an honest investigation and an honest prosecution as well.”

“If I were the judge on the Hunter Biden case, I would refuse to accept the plea bargain unless and until Garland and Weiss testify,” Dershowitz told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Tuesday. “What they've said is utterly incompatible.”

In addition, former head of the DOJ's tax division Eileen O’Connor said in the Wall Street Journal that she thinks the deal should be rejected and several members of congress said they were considering filing briefs to ask that Noreika do so.

U.S. Attorneys in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles – both appointed by Biden –declined lead U.S. Attorney David Weiss's request for an indictment of Hunter Biden and then let the statute of limitation on more serious charges run out, according to whistleblower Gary Shapley, an IRS supervisory agent who went to Congress and the press with his allegations.
