Comer warns that Hunter Biden’s special counsel could try to “sneak something” into a new indictment

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer warned Wednesday that if Hunter Biden is charged with carrying weapons, it will not only be “the least of all the crimes” the first son has been accused of, but also a sign that special counsel David Weiss might be trying to “sneak something in.”

Comer (R-Ky.) cited Weiss’ earlier attempt to broker an ill-fated deal with Biden’s lawyers that would have allowed President Biden’s 53-year-old son to avoid jail time as a reason to view any future prosecution against Hunter with skepticism.

“They already tried to sneak something in once. We need to make sure they don’t do it again,” Comer told radio talk show hosts John Catsimatidis and Rita Crosby during an appearance on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats & Cosby Show” on Wednesday.

The Kentucky Republican was reacting to a Justice Department filing in a Delaware court on Wednesday that indicated Hunter will face a new federal grand jury indictment sometime before Sept. 29 in connection with his possession of a firearm. while he was addicted to crack.

“This is the least of all the crimes that Hunter Biden has committed,” Comer said of possible firearms charges that will be filed against Hunter.

“Obviously, he broke the law and Joe Biden wants to create more gun laws,” Comer added. “I mean, you know, it’s… I’m not surprised. But David Weiss has a long way to go.”

The first son was to receive broad immunity protection under a plea deal he reached with federal prosecutors in June that would have allowed him to avoid prosecution on the weapons charge, but the deal fell through in a Delaware court in July.

Hunter reportedly served two years of probation for two misdemeanor tax offenses and entered a firearms violation diversion program under the terms of the failed deal.

Weiss was named special prosecutor in the case by Attorney General Merrick Garland after the plea deal failed, a move that was criticized by Comer and several other Republican lawmakers in light of allegations by IRS whistleblowers that the Biden administration engaged in a cover-up during the course of the investigation.

“Yeah, look, I think everyone in America needs to pay close attention to this,” Comer said of the upcoming indictment.
