Gomer Pyle: Call Your Office!

 

Hunter Biden’s indictments may be “delayed.” As Gomer would say: Gollee!

Remember Gomer Pyle? I recalled one of his most famous expressions when I read an article today about possible plans of the Department of [In]Justice to “delay” moving forward with charges against Hunter Biden because of “election year sensitivities.”

Recent reports have repeatedly claimed that the US Attorney in Delaware is “getting closer” to indictments on a number of charges. Every time I heard one of those reports, I just laughed out loud and mentioned the availability of a very valuable bridge for a bargain price. Here’s a bit of the New York Post report of today; I know everyone will have the same reaction I did— Gomer Pyle, call your office!

Word is that the Biden Justice Department is finally getting set to press charges against first son Hunter after long dragging its feet on the probe. But it looks likely the feds will shy from the key issues exposed in The Post’s reporting on Hunter’s laptop to spare Democrats in advance of this year’s midterm elections.

***

Yet the probe’s dragged on, with neither an indictment nor exoneration — raising eyebrows among legal experts. “It is very unusual, if witnesses have already testified, for the prosecutor to not immediately submit the matter for a vote,” notes former Utah US Attorney Brett Tolman. “The fact that Hunter Biden has not been indicted yet can only be explained by purposeful delay.”

DOJ memos warn of “election year sensitivities” in relation to indictments. Yet the probe has stretched out for years now; there’s been plenty of time to make announcements.

***

Clearly, there’s no need for “sensitivities” here — unless politics is the motive. Confirmation of that will come if Hunter’s only charged with relatively innocuous gun and tax crimes, with all the selling-Joe’s-influence stuff quietly dropped, and then scores a generous plea deal so Democrats and their media allies can bury the whole scandal again.

Of course, we cannot know whether or not the indictments will proceed as they should considering the overwhelming mountain of evidence in the public domain courtesy of what has to be the most gargantuan ego known to modern science, that of the very personification of the word “entitled,” Hunter Biden. Stranger things have happened, I guess; Nixon went to China and Trump defeated the “inevitable” candidacy of Hildebeast. But, with little items like this article, it seems justifiable to say we have a fairly good idea where this is headed.

If these indictments are made to “go away,” this clearly will be the most rotten, corrupt administration in American history. If indictments are handed down, this will still clearly be the most rotten, corrupt administration in American history.

God Bless America.

    Never forget — the DOJ knew of Hunter’s crimes in 2019 (or earlier).

    “Election year sensitivities,” my ass.

    I hope that God is still watching over fools, children, and the United States of America. I have been in the first category longer than the second, and He has certainly given me more than I deserve. He can back off me for a while and use the extra energy on my beloved country, which sorely needs it.

    When did Hunter become a politician? What race is being affected by him being indicted? The DoJ is so full of crap and it shouldn’t be funded any longer.

    No Bidens on the ballot this year. So what is the rule? You can only arrest a Democrat in odd numbered years?

    You can arrest a Democrat? Is that even allowed?

    I’m beginning to think that the only thing Hunter will be arrested for is failure to provide child support.  The stripper’s lawyer will probably be tougher than the DOJ.

    The January 6th show trial on prime time TV, which is based on “crimes” so questionable that they didn’t even bother to indict Trump – that “trial” seems to be less concerned about “election year sensitivities”.

    Yep. As long as we keep having elections, the Biden family is safe. Probably even local, municipal elections will serve the purpose.

    We have a very dedicated, trustworthy Justice Department.

    Lying on the firearms form is a slam dunk.  That should take about 10 minutes to process.

    One of the features of a banana republic is a two-tier justice system. Just sayin’. . .

    I never liked the guy, but listened to him interviewed by Megyn Kelly and began to like him a bit. This tweet moved him up, way up in my esteem.

    I’ve seen enough Soviet/Russian movies to know that when you’re walked to your cell or walked out for interrogation (or to consult with a lawyer, or most anywhere else) that you’re supposed to put your hands behind your back and cross them like that. I’ve no idea where AOC learned it.
