( – On a recent episode of “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Fox News, host Jesse Watters discussed with Representative James Comer, the Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, the conviction of Hunter Biden on federal felony gun charges. Watters raised the question of whether Hunter Biden might be “taking the fall” to protect his father, President Joe Biden.

Representative Comer, a Republican from Kentucky, expressed his belief that this could indeed be the case, emphasizing his concern that the Department of Justice has not yet addressed what he considers to be more severe offenses. According to Comer, the charges of lying on a gun application, for which Hunter Biden was found guilty, would not rank among the top ten crimes he believes the president’s son has committed.

Hunter Biden was convicted in Delaware for lying about his drug use on federal forms to purchase a gun illegally. This conviction marks a historical first as he is the first child of a sitting president to face criminal conviction. Despite this, President Biden has stated he will not pardon his son and will accept the legal outcomes.

Despite the president’s assurance, Comer speculated that Hunter Biden might still expect some form of presidential pardon, hinting that the case against him is not yet closed. The conversation also touched on Hunter Biden’s upcoming trial for tax evasion in California and a criminal referral involving Hunter and his uncle, James Biden. This referral, spearheaded by Comer and two other Republican leaders, accuses them of misleading Congress and concealing information, purportedly to protect Joe Biden from an impeachment inquiry.

However, connections between the allegations and President Biden appear tenuous. Comer concluded by stressing the ongoing nature of the inquiry and the Republicans’ commitment to transparency and accountability in investigating the financial dealings of the Biden family. The inquiry has yet to conclusively link the president to any corruption related to his son’s international business dealings during his tenure as vice president.
