Hunter Biden joins SharterJoe for Vacation . . .

. . . as GOP slams FBI for ‘double standard’ after Trump raid

If this isn't the ultimate  :bird: from SharterJoe to the American people, meaning "my son Hunter is untouchable by you, the FBI, or the IRS", I can't think of a better way. Just put together a photo op of Hunter and his family on board AF1 heading off to SC on 10 August, right in the aftermath of the FBI raid on Trump's house and they've got their  :bird: .

The arrogance. The elitism. The incessant vacations from gaffing up. Actually, I'm kinda glad SharterJoe has to take a day or two off (if for no other reason than for Jill to change his Depends) since everything he touches turns to shit.

Disgraced first son Hunter Biden joined his father on Air Force One Wednesday for a flight to a family vacation on Kiawah Island, South Carolina — as Republicans slam the FBI for a “double standard” in raiding former President Trump’s residence, but neither of the Bidens’ homes.

Hunter Biden often involved his father Joe in foreign business deals and is under federal investigation for tax fraud, money laundering and unregistered lobbying — but there’s no indication that either father or son have been raided by the FBI in connection with the long-running investigation.

Hunter Biden, 52, his wife Melissa Cohen, and his young son Beau met the president at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for the flight just two days after the FBI served a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, reportedly to retrieve presidential records that may contain classified information.

The Justice Department has said little about the Trump raid and the White House insists Biden didn’t know about it ahead of time, but Trump called it “political targeting at the highest level.” Trump nixed the Supreme Court nomination of Attorney General Merrick Garland, who supervises the FBI.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said that the FBI’s treatment of Trump as opposed to the Bidens showed a “Banana Republic”-style legal system.

“The raid of [Mar-a-Lago] is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” DeSantis tweeted.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted Tuesday: “Look at what the DOJ did last night to President Trump, while it slow-rolls and looks the other way on Hunter Biden.”

Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) tweeted, “The raid on President Trump’s home sets a dangerous precedent and takes the targeting of political opponents to an alarming new level. It also underscores a blatant double standard with the free pass given to Hunter Biden.”

Rep. Connie Conway (R-Calif.), wrote, “There’s a double standard in how the FBI treats Hillary Clinton/Hunter Biden and how they treat Trump, his associates, and even parents speaking out at school board meetings. Americans’ faith in the FBI is collapsing because we know politicized justice is not justice at all.”

Trump’s legal team has not released a copy of the FBI search warrant, which could clarify the purpose of the raid. In addition to his handling of federal records, the former president reportedly is under investigation for his efforts to challenge his loss in the 2020 election.

The Hunter Biden investigation, meanwhile, has proceeded slowly.

Since December 2019, the FBI has had a computer hard drive that formerly belonged to Hunter Biden. Documents on the device detail his overseas business income and contradict Joe Biden’s September 2019 claim that “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Delaware computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac provided the laptop to the FBI nearly one year before The Post revealed some of its bombshell contents in October 2020, including evidence that Hunter Biden introduced his vice-president father to an executive from Ukrainian gas company Burisma — which paid the then-second son as much as $1 million per year to serve on its board — and emails regarding a proposed Chinese business deal that said the “big guy” would get a 10% stake “held by H.”

Hunter Biden recently paid the IRS about $2 million in an acknowledgement that he failed to hand over taxes on a windfall of foreign income. The funds reportedly were provided by Hollywood lawyer Kevin Morris, but it’s unclear what strings are attached and the repayment doesn’t prevent prosecution.
