If there is proof that hunter did something illegal in regard to guns, as the reporting indicates, then indict him. And then indict trump and his whole crew.

16. Seems like most presidents have had disreputable or embarrassing relatives.

Kennedy had Ted (Chappaquiddick), Nixon had Donald, Carter had Billy, a couple of Reagan's sons were embarrassing depending on your politics; Clinton had Roger, the Bushes had Neil. Obama doesn't seem to have had any noticeably problematic relatives, while Trump himself is the orange (the new black) sheep of his extremely sketchy family. Whatever Hunter might have done, it sounds like very small potatoes compared to TFG and the rest of them.

20. YOU'RE CALLING TED KENNEDY AN EMBARRASSMENT?!

He was a great Democratic Senator and a great man. Just who did he embarrass? Both his brothers had been murdered before Chappaquidick, so I doubt that they were embarrassed by this tragic accident.

JEEZ. Are you a Democrat?

22. The Chappaquidick incident was very embarrassing to the Kennedy family

and the party at the time. I remember it quite well, and part of the controversy had to do with claims that aspects of the accident had been covered up to protect the Kennedys. The incident definitely threw a monkey wrench in Ted's presidential aspirations.

After the accident he announced that he wouldn’t run for president in 1972, as many supporters had been hoping he would before Chappaquiddick. The fallout from the accident (and lingering rumors of a cover-up) permanently doomed Kennedy’s presidential ambitions: In 1980, when he finally did seek the Democratic presidential nomination, he suffered an embarrassing defeat to the unpopular incumbent Jimmy Carter.

Kennedy would serve Massachusetts in the Senate for three more decades, and would become one of the nation’s most respected elder statesmen by the time of his death, of brain cancer, in 2009. In True Compass, a memoir published after his death, Kennedy wrote that his actions the night of the accident were “inexcusable,” and that he “made terrible decisions.”

He knew at the time the accident would be devastating to his family, Kennedy admitted, as well as damaging to his political career. Finally, Kennedy wrote that “my burden is nothing compared to [Kopechne’s] loss and the suffering her family had to endure. She also didn’t deserve to be linked to me in a romantic way. She deserved better than that.”
https://www.history.com/news/ted-kennedy-chappaquiddick-incident-what-really-happened-facts

I did not intend to dis Ted, who did go on to become one of the most respected members of the Senate. But the incident was a huge scandal at the time.

pale in comparison...and how about the nephew who was accused of rape at Ted Kennedy's home or the family home...I forget. That was very embarrassing for Democrats. Ted Kennedy became the lion of the Senate but he had some bumps and bruises along the way. I will always maintain his primarying Carter cost us the presidency and opened the door for Reagan.

against trump. And then I don't see how Garland can continue as Biden's AG.

It will create such an uproar and backlash by Dems as trump is obviously guilty of document theft.

Huge mistake if Garland does this.

what was the point of the search warrant at MAL and all the 11 Circuit appeals to continue the espionage investigations against trump?

Whether Garland will charge him is yet to be seen. Garland has surprised us by going this far. He might surprise us again and indict the traitor.

before trump. If said indictment happens, Garland will have to make a decision as to stay of not.

I don't see why this Hunter case is not on the back burner with the trump document case being so unavoidable. Why is it coming up out of the blue to take prominence over a trump indictment?

This seems like nothing but a maga-backed issue to distract from the growing inevitablility of a trump espionage indictment.

Hunter checked the box that he was not an addict. This "crime" is rarely prosecuted.

Hunter also has some tax issues that I am not familiar with.

44. Not what it seems on the surface

My understanding is a Trump era U.S. Attorney in Delaware (Weiss) is supervising the case. The case had been going on for months. Weiss isn't the one saying anything..."agents" are saying it. The "agents" have said it months ago. They can't bring criminal tax charges without the tax division agreeing.

Garland has said he is staying out of it and in my opinion the best way to play it. There doesn't seem to be anything new just noise from people that aren't in position to take action. The noise would be really loud if Garland weighed in.

The gun charge come from Hunter obtaining a permit which he stated he was not a drug user. Apparently, he has said since he was doing drugs during that time frame. It is a charge that normally wouldn't be prosecuted without extenuating circumstances.
