Presidential Candidate and political outsider Vivek Ramaswamy issued the following statement on President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, pleading guilty to criminal charges to pay federal income tax and possession of a firearm:
“The Hunter Biden plea deal is a joke. It’s a feigned retreat and reveals they’re even more scared than ever of scrutiny for the real crimes. The real target is the audio tapes of the alleged bribe for Hunter and Joe Biden from the Ukrainian executive of oligarch-owned Burisma. And the hundreds of billions of U.S. taxpayer funds kicked back to Ukraine to make good on the favor. Don’t buy the deflection; it’s just a smokescreen.
“It’s no accident that the farcical Hunter Biden ‘plea deal’ comes right after the Trump indictment: it’s the perfect fig leaf to pretend that ‘no one is above the law,’ while absolutely putting certain people above the law. It’s an Orwellian gesture that gives the news media exactly the level of cover that they needed. Amazing to see how this game is played.”
