Judge Appears Skeptical of Hunter Biden’s Motion to Dismiss Tax Charges – EVOL

Judge Mark Scarsi said he doesn’t see factual evidence to back defense’s claims that charges are politically motivated.

A federal judge questioned a lack of evidence provided by attorneys representing President Joe Biden’s son Hunter during a hearing in Los Angeles March 27 as they sought to have several tax-related charges dropped.

Judge Mark Scarsi (CQ) heard arguments from Mr. Biden’s lawyers for several hours about their eight motions filed to dismiss the case. Many of the claims were not backed by factual evidence, including the allegation that the charges were politically motivated, he said.

“There doesn’t seem to be any evidence that anything in Congress or the whistleblowers influenced the prosecution,” Judge Scarsi told Mr. Biden’s lead attorney, Abbe Lowell (CQ), during a discussion about his claim that Mr. Biden was selectively prosecuted.

Mr. Lowell admitted he didn’t have evidence but claimed “rank partisans” were pushing for the charges.

“I don’t have transparency, but I have ‘connect the dots’ evidence,” Mr. Lowell said.

A ruling on the motions is expected by April 17 on the defendant’s claims, which include claims that Los Angeles is an improper venue, the special counsel was not funded correctly, and outrageous government conduct.
