President Joe Biden is preparing to pardon his son Hunter as the Justice Department continues to pursue potential charges stemming from a years-long federal investigation, Miranda Devine, a Fox News contributor, warned.
Devine’s comments came after Biden finally addressed the possibility of his son being indicted in a rare sit-down interview where he dismissed the possibility that it would have any impact on his tenure.
Speaking on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Sunday (May 7), Devine described the President’s remarks as the “mythology of Joe Biden,” which has been circulating for over four decades now.
She described the mythology as being that Biden is a great family man, a moderate Democrat, a working-class Joe, “the poorest man in Congress,” who is “full of empathy because of the tragedies in his own life.”
Devine suggested that Biden’s “endgame” is to use the sympathy card to pardon Hunter, which she believed Americans would forgive him for doing because “Hunter was a drug addict and Joe just loves his family and has been through enough tragedy in his life.”
Devine’s comments come after Biden gave a rare sit-down interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, which aired on Friday (May 5).
In the interview, when asked about the possibility a Hunter indictment would affect his Presidency, Biden insists Hunter “has done nothing wrong.”
The President continued, stating he trusts and has “faith in him,” adding that an Indictment of Hunter only “impacts [his] presidency by making [him] feel proud of [Hunter].”
But Devine quickly argued that Biden’s response was calculated and part of a larger strategy by Biden to frame the investigation as a “political witch hunt,” adding that the sentiment Biden expressed was “probably the only way he can go” because he lied about his involvement dating back to before the 2020 Election.
