Democratic Rep. Judy Chu Contends Hunter Biden’s Plea Deal Was Just Despite Whistleblower Testimony

In recent developments, Democratic Representative Judy Chu of California has asserted on Monday that Hunter Biden was granted a “just plea deal” by the Department of Justice, despite contrary claims from a whistleblower.

Chu’s remarks concerning the unraveling plea agreement surfaced nearly a fortnight after Hunter Biden entered a “not guilty” plea for all charges, following the collapse of the initial plea deal. The setback occurred when United States District Judge Maryellen Noreika dismissed both the original plea arrangement and a more limited amended version on July 26. Notably, Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, provided testimony to investigators of the House Oversight Committee on July 31, just prior to commencing his prison term. Archer disclosed that then-Vice President Joe Biden engaged in more than twenty conversations with his son, Hunter, concerning their business ventures.

“Hunter Biden did plead guilty, he interacted with the law, that’s very much unlike former President Trump, who has flaunted it so many times,” Chu told “Meet the Press Now” host Kristen Welker. “I think there is a huge contrast between Biden and Trump and in fact, that Biden got a fair plea deal from the prosecutors.”

Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers Gary Shapley and fellow whistleblower Joseph Zeigler testified about interference with the investigation into Biden during a July 19 hearing held by the House Oversight Committee.

Congressional Republicans, candidates for the Republican nomination for president in 2024 and legal experts all criticized the plea agreement announced on June 20, with some calling it a “sweetheart deal.”

“The person who was in charge of it was a Trump appointee,” Chu, who reportedly has ties to a Chinese Communist Party front group said, referencing United States Attorney David Weiss who led the investigation into Hunter Biden. Chu has denied the reports, despite documents and photos contradicting her claim.
