But that in and of itself was a gamble because JS could have ended up being a trump acolyte.

I've gone back and forth a couple of times over the past 24 hours but today I'm more settled in my thoughts: Hunter Biden is being used as a political pawn, with assistance from the doj. The rightwing scream machine has been pressuring the doj to indict Hunter for years.

I do not support a double standard system of justice for the rich and powerful. The problem is that the three charges are just that: a double standard. A regular person would not have been charged with this. Period. This is only happening because Hunter Biden is President Biden's son.

The travesty that is unfolding is absolutely disgusting and disgraceful, and it's happening on Merrick Garland's watch.

This could potentially cause President Biden to retire and honestly I wouldn't blame him.
