Hunter Biden stayed at WH for two straight weeks after agreeing to an ill-fated plea deal – unbeknownst to most employees

According to one report, Hunter Biden managed to spend two weeks of father-son time with President Biden unbeknownst to most White House staffers before his plea on federal tax and gun crimes fell through.

The president’s embattled 53-year-old son began a two-week stay at the Executive Mansion on June 21 — a day after he reached a doomed settlement with US Attorney David Weiss, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

The failed deal would have spared him jail time for allegations that he didn’t pay taxes when he bought a firearm and that he lied about his crack cocaine addiction.

The majority of the 80-year-old President’s advisers were unaware of Hunter Biden’s extended DC visit, which ended with a State Dinner at the White House honoring the Indian Prime Minister attended by the first son, two trips by the Biden family to Camp David, the discovery of a … overlapped a bag of cocaine just steps from the Situation Room and an Independence Day car accident at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Hunter Biden left the White House on July 5 with his wife and son in tow.

The report notes that most White House staffers, including senior staffers, not only “are not involved in discussions about the president’s son,” but also “strenuously avoid” having legal troubles with the commander in chief about Hunter Biden’s speak because they believe that their “contributions and ideas would not be welcome.”

They refuse to raise the issue with the President, although they are concerned about the “tribute” Hunter Biden’s legal troubles are taking on the oldest President in US history.

The lack of open dialogue between President Biden and his aides has “complicated” the president’s re-election efforts as the eventual Republican presidential nominee is expected to cover up the incumbent on the original “sweetheart” plea deal offered to Hunter Biden alleged by two IRS whistleblowers shielding him from legal exposure during the government investigation into the first son and his involvement in his son’s influence activities abroad.

“Keep your hands off my family,” was the president’s message to his advisers regarding Hunter Biden advice, according to a June NBC News report.

However, aides approved the president’s schedule on July 26, allowing him to closely follow his son’s appearance outside a Delaware courtroom, where his plea deal with Weiss was expected to be finalized, according to the Washington Post.

Staff reportedly had concerns about “exposing” the president to reporters during the trial, and scheduled only “internal meetings” and a 45-minute interview with podcast host Jay Shetty on mental health for the day.

The president’s personal attorney, Bob Bauer, updated the supreme commander on the hour-long hearing as Hunter Biden’s deal fell through, culminating in a eldest son’s plea of ​​innocence.

According to the report, Attorney General Merrick Garland then appointed Weiss as a special counsel, which “snapped” President Biden.

Weiss will now continue the investigation into the first son, which could lead to further charges against Hunter Biden, including for allegedly failing to register as a foreign agent while lobbying, and is likely to take the case to court — which could happen in the middle of the re-election campaign of President Biden.
