Tucker Carlson slams Biden's Department of Justice over Hunter Biden plea deal
Tucker Carlson has slammed the Department of Justice over Hunter Biden's plea deal and described it as a 'lifetime of sins washed away in an instant'.
The son of President Joe Biden has reached a deal with prosecutors that would see him plead guilty to tax crimes and dispense with a gun charge but likely avoid jail time.
He has been under investigation for five years for tax and financial allegations, as well as for paperwork for purchasing a handgun where he attested that he did not abuse drugs.
But former Fox News host Carlson slammed the plea agreement and claimed the Justice Department had 'baptized' Hunter, 53.
He took to his new show on Twitter on Tuesday to criticize the decision and claimed he had 'pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing'.
Donald Trump had an idea. "They'll hit hunter with something small to make their strike on me look fair," Trump wrote that about two weeks ago,' Carlson said.
'This morning Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing. He pled to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges then entered a diversion on a federal gun charge.
'That's it. As far as Merrick Garland's Justice Department is concerned Hunter Biden is done.'
