"Washington Post": Biden's Son is Not Above the Law Either
The US newspaper "Washington Post" wrote on Wednesday about the legal issues surrounding Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden:
"The fact that the son of a sitting president is being held accountable for tax offenses shows that in the US system, no one is above the law... The deal underscores that Hunter Biden has indeed done something wrong. However, the president seems to have kept his promise not to interfere in the investigations. A US attorney appointed by (Biden's predecessor Donald) Trump had years to substantiate conspiracy theories about Joe Biden's involvement in his son's business affairs. He failed to do so.
While Republicans insist that prosecution is being used as a weapon and cite the charges against Trump as the main evidence, more sober assessments have produced a growing body of evidence that the Department of Justice exercises care and restraint in pursuing politically sensitive cases, regardless of whether the target is a Democrat or a Republican."
