Reports arose Wednesday from multiple sources that Hunter Biden is set to be indicted by Special Counsel David Weiss in connection to the preferential tax pleas deal that was tossed by  U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika in April.

Special Counsel Weiss issued a letter to Judge Noreika informing her that in accordance with the Speedy Trial Act, an indictment of Hunter Biden is required no later than September 29th. That said: the government “intends to seek the return of an indictment in this case before that date.”

Weiss wrote, that due to the considerations of Hunter’s pleas agreement the court “excluded time from July 26, 2023 to September 1, 2023, in the interests of justice. Thus, from June 23, 2024, until September 1, 2024, only two days, July 24 and 25, 2023, have elapsed for the purposes of calculating the 30 days within which an indictment must be returned after the execution of a summons. Thus, the Speedy Trial Act requires that the government obtain the return of an indictment by a grand jury by Friday, September 29, 2023. at the earliest.”

Benny Johnson of Newsmax posted the letter in full to X, formerly Twitter.

Under the circumstances, the return could be significantly faster. A Grand Jury, in most situations, can be convened as quickly as one week from an order.

Reactions on social media have been immediate with Congressman Ronny Jackson (R-TX) writing, “I’m not holding my breath on a Hunter Biden indictment. I suspect our “justice” department is scheming to give him the deal of a century. Hunter belongs in prison for YEARS! NOTHING LESS! He MUST face justice for his MANY crimes!”

Sean Davis, founder of The Federalist similarly opined that some legal mechanism would prevent the indictment from moving forward. He wrote, “I wouldn’t put it past Weiss to sandbag his own grand jury to prevent any indictment of Hunter Biden. He and the Biden family consiglieres who work for him have been breaking the law to protect the Biden crime family for years. Why would they stop now?”

Rogan O’Handley aka DC Draino suggested that additional indictments of former President Trump may crop up curiously timed within days of the indictment. “DOJ Special Counsel David Weiss confirms in court filing his plan to indict Hunter Biden before end of September This of course means the DOJ will probably announce a new set of charges for President Trump the day after Hunter’s indictment Gotta distract the public!”

As previously reported by Explain America, Biden pleaded ‘Not Guilty’ after Judge Norieka refused to accept the proposed plea deal that ensconced a felony gun charge along with a tax violation

“It’s very telling that the judge intervened here and said basically, ‘No, I’m not going to approve some sweeping blanket deal,’” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) told CNN. “I mean, that tells you the court has serious concerns about other potential charges here, and also the scope of the deal, which has seemed outrageous from the beginning. This, I think, signals that they’re still very much as potential for prosecution forward.”

Fox News summarized the issue with the plea deal: “Judge Maryellen Noreika did not accept the plea agreement, questioning the constitutionality–specifically the diversion clause and the immunity Hunter Biden would receive. The judge pressed federal prosecutors on the investigation and questioned whether there was the possibility for future charges, and asked prosecutors if Hunter Biden was currently under active investigation. Prosecutors said he was, but would not answer specifically what the president’s son is under investigation for.”

Initially the judge had “concerns” about linking the tax plea agreement to the felony gun charge and in the end removed immunity from the deal.

This is a developing story and Explain America will publish additional information as it becomes available.
