Judge orders Hunter to get a job, stay off booze and drugs after plea deal collapses

Hunter Biden was ordered by a federal judge to look for a job and stay off of booze and drugs as a condition of his release after the shocking collapse of his sweetheart plea deal.

When the presidential son showed up for his hearing in a Wilmington, Delaware federal courthouse on Thursday, the last thing that he likely expected would be to have his controversial deal to avoid prison on tax and gun-related charges fall apart, which it did after the agreement struck with prosecutors was scuttled by Judge Maryellen Noreika.

“You are telling me to rubber stamp the agreement,” she said of the deal that would have neatly tied up the case against President Joe Biden’s degenerate son, at least as far as the media is concerned, putting the decision on hold until another hearing next month as the investigation of the 53-year-old continues.

“These agreements are not straightforward and they contain atypical provisions,” Judge Noreika said, adding: “I’m not in a position where I can decide to accept or reject a plea agreement and I need to defer it.”

After Biden pleaded not guilty, Noreika ordered him to “actively seek employment,” submit to drug testing, not possess a firearm, and prohibit drinking and the consumption of illicit substances.

Noreika, an appointee of former President Donald J. Trump said that she had “concerns” about the linking of the plea agreements on the two misdemeanor tax charges and the felony gun charge which he would have been allowed to avoid jail as long as he completed a diversion program. A deal that some pointed to as confirmation that there are now two systems of justice in the country, one that protects Democrats and their allies, and another that punishes their political enemies to the extreme.

“Wow! The corrupt Biden DOJ just cleared up hundreds of years of criminal liability by giving Hunter Biden a mere traffic ticket,” former President Donald J. Trump said on Truth Social after the plea deal was initially announced. “Our system is BROKEN!”

“District Judge Noreika did the right thing by refusing to rubberstamp Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal,” said Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) the chairman of the House Oversight Committee which is investigating Biden family corruption. “But let’s be clear: Hunter’s sweetheart plea deal belongs in the trash. The DOJ must be held accountable for its Biden family coverup.”

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to answer questions about the stunning developments in the Hunter Biden case, saying that “the president, the first lady, they love their son and they support him as he continues to rebuild his life.”

“This case was handled independently, as all of you know, by the Justice Department under the leadership of a prosecutor appointed by the former president, President Trump,” Biden’s top spox said at the daily briefing. “So for anything further, as you know and we’ve been very consistent from here, I’d refer you to the Department of Justice and to Hunter’s representatives who is his legal team obviously, who can address any of your questions.”
