Hunter Biden was found guilty of three gun charges in a Delaware courtroom Tuesday. 100 miles south in Washington D.C., Republicans in Congress continued to say there is a two-tiered system of justice and that the Bidens should face even more criminal charges. 

“The Biden crime family, why is it called the Biden crime family? There’s so much that we have looked at that they should be obviously charged with, but when you have a corrupt DOJ, you got an FBI director that’s nothing but garbage,” Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas said. “The whole administration is troubled.”

After the verdict, President Biden released a statement that said, “I will accept the outcome of this case and will continue to respect the judicial process as Hunter considers an appeal.” 

President Biden also said in a recent interview that he would not pardon his son, but Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., doesn’t think he’ll stand by that. 

“On election day, when those polls close, I think that you’re gonna see that Biden will eventually pardon his son,” Luna told reporters. 

Luna said the DOJ should take action against Hunter Biden for his foreign business dealings while his father was vice President and accused him of lying to Congress about it. 

Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., criticized Republicans for attacking the justice system. 

“Hunter Biden was just convicted of every single count that was brought against him by the US Department of Justice. I’ve not heard a single Democrat anywhere in the country cry fraud, cry fixed, cry rigged, cry kangaroo court, or any of the many epithets that our colleagues have mobilized against the US Department of Justice and our federal court system,” Raskin said. 

While progress in the Republicans impeachment inquiry into President Biden has stalled, they are moving to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for not handing over the audio recording of the President’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur.

Republicans will need to vote in unison for the contempt resolution to be approved. As of Tuesday evening, they appeared to have broad support throughout their caucus. 

“You comply with a subpoena. That’s the way it works in this country,” Rep. Marc Molinaro, R-N.Y., said. “The framers were very clear that whether one agrees with it or not, Congress has a responsibility to provide accountability and oversight.” 

Molinaro said Democrats are trying to run out the clock so they don’t have to hand over the tapes. Running out the clock means delaying for the rest of the year until this Congress ends and the subpoena expires. Some Republicans also said they want to delay until after the election because they believe the tapes will show the President has cognitively declined with age.
