Move along, already! CNN shills urge viewers not to believe their lying eyes on Hunter’s ‘sweetheart deal’

Hunter Biden got a “sweetheart deal” letting him off the hook for illegal gun possession, drug use, sex trafficking, and foreign bribery schemes, instead being charged over minor tax stuff with CNN going to bat for him, telling everyone that the ruling was just “very, very standard.”

Hunter Biden did plead guilty to three counts. Two charges for failing to file taxes in a timely manner and illegal possession of a firearm.

First up was CNN legal analyst Jennifer Rodgers who poo-pooed criticism from Republicans on Tuesday who called the plea agreement a “sweetheart deal.” Former President Trump had a better name for it, he called it a “traffic ticket.”

“Obviously, you’re already hearing a lot of shouting. Oh, sweetheart deal. Oh, this, oh, that. None of us really knows the details of the possible charges are here and exactly what was agreed to as part of this plea, Jennifer,” CNN anchor John Berman declared doing his best to carry water for the White House.

“But how does one assess whether this is the type of deal that a normal person, not a president’s child would get in this circumstance?” Berman disingenuously asked Rodgers.

Then the footwork began as the CNN talking heads all proclaimed there is absolutely nothing to see here.

“So you would look to other similar cases, right? So on the gun form charge. It’s very, very standard for someone in this situation who lies on the form because they’re an addict,” Rodgers asserted while noting that the gun charge will reportedly be dismissed if Hunter Biden meets certain conditions.

“The gun is long gone, apparently only had it for a couple of weeks. It’s very standard in these circumstances for this diversion to occur and to wipe out the charges, assuming he’s successfully completed it,” Rodgers claimed.

According to CNN, in the end, Hunter Biden really did nothing wrong and it was a long time ago, so just drop it already.

“So that’s totally standard. And the tax fraud is similar as well. I mean, he paid those taxes back a long time ago. That’s something that DOJ takes very, very seriously when negotiating these deals. And I’ll also say that Hunter Biden was an addict at the time,” he continued.

“And so there was discussion of this back when this investigation got going. When you’re talking about a drug addict, you have to think about whether you can prove the mens rea. If this goes to trial. Is he going to be able to undercut their case about whether he knowingly and willfully didn’t pay his taxes? So given all of that and given similar cases with tax fraud, this is not a sweetheart deal. It’s a deal,” Rodgers said trying to justify the unjustifiable.

“I think it’s a good deal for Hunter Biden in that he will stay out of prison and end up with only two misdemeanors on his record. But it’s certainly not a sweetheart deal out of line with what happens in the rest of the country,” he proclaimed.

Tuesday, NBC News reported that Hunter Biden will almost certainly not serve any jail time on the charges. He will be given probation for the tax violations. In other words, he will face no consequences for his actions.

Twitter was a torrid inferno over the obvious two-tier justice system at play:
