President Joe Biden will pardon his scandal-plagued son Hunter and then step away from the job, allowing Democrats to replace the deeply unpopular leader for 2024, at least that’s the theory put forth by Greg Gutfeld of Fox News.
Now that it is no longer possible to keep a lid on the damning details of the younger Biden’s shady foreign business dealings, there is an increasing possibility that an indictment could be looming, an ominous possibility for Democrats whose political prospects continue to get grimmer by the day.
There have been whispers that the party would like to find a way to dump Biden from the 2024 ticket to contain the damage to the rapidly approaching midterms, and his son’s legal problems could represent the perfect opportunity to push him into retirement, at least that’s what Gutfeld was suggesting.
During Monday’s edition of “The Five”, the panel discussed The Washington Post’s acknowledgment that the previously suppressed bombshell about incriminating material on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop that has since been authenticated by The New York Times presents an “opportunity for a reckoning” in the media.
The co-hosts opened by discussing WaPo’s admission, then turned to the idea that “the big guy” himself could be implicated by the contents of the laptop as well as the possibility of the Justice Department going after the son of a sitting president.
“I worked at DOJ for a just little while, I was a spokesperson there, one of the many spokespeople there and basically, you would learn 101 ways to say no comment, which is, I think, is what the White House and DOJ is trying to do right now,” Dana Perino said, referring to remarks by White House chief of staff Ron Klain.
“I don’t have any evidence to think that the White House is pressuring the DOJ in any way, besides, prosecutors really don’t like that,” she added, “and so, they don’t have to be told this is super sensitive, they know that if there is one iota that it looks like Joe Biden was involved in some way or influenced in some way, the White House’s messaging…. what the chief of staff just said which is that he has full confidence his son didn’t do anything wrong. there’s no there there, there’s nothing there, that will all blow apart.”
“So I think the DOJ is just trying to slow-walk this as long as they can, they might try to say well we don’t do things before elections, but Hunter Biden is not on the ballot.”
Gutfeld disagreed with Perino that the Justice Department would slow-walk the investigation, and after calling into question the sincerity of WaPo coming clean after it dismissed the laptop story instead of when it could have made a difference, laid out his theory.
“You said slow walk? I think it’s a fast walk,” he said.
“I think that Joe is not going to be there for 2024, right?” Gutfeld asked. “And they’re going to tell him that, he’s got to go back, to home, but the tradeoff, is that he gets to pardon Hunter.”
“So that’s what I think, they’re going to fast walk it… this is what you would call a conspiracy,” he explained, “but they’re going to fast walk it so they can pardon him, and then Joe will leave and then it’s all gone.”
Whether Gutfeld’s theory pans out remains to be seen but the White House is feeling the pressure and the walls could soon be closing in.
