( – Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, has approached the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeking the release of documents related to the decision to prosecute President Joe Biden’s son on gun-related offenses. Lowell contends that these documents will reveal that political pressure influenced the case, which could lead U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika to dismiss it, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

This development follows Hunter Biden’s legal team’s recent request to Judge Noreika to drop the federal gun charges against him. According to ABC News, the defense argues that the prosecutors broke key agreements of a deal that would have helped Hunter Biden avoid felony charges.

Should Judge Noreika decide not to dismiss the case, Hunter Biden’s attorneys are pressing for the court to mandate the DOJ to provide documents detailing the internal deliberations over charging Hunter Biden.

Lowell is specifically seeking any DOJ communications from October 12th, 2018, to the present, related to the investigation and decisions regarding the charges, as mentioned in the Washington Examiner’s report. Lowell noted that he had previously requested these documents in October and November.

During a December 1st status call, Lowell highlighted that when asked for an update on these materials, special counsel David Weiss’ team indicated they would let the discovery process unfold naturally.

Hunter Biden’s legal team has submitted multiple motions to dismiss his case, initiated by Weiss in Delaware over allegations of lying on a federal form in 2018 to purchase a gun. Lowell argues in these filings that Weiss was improperly appointed, rendering him unauthorized to file charges. He also claims that an immunity clause in a previous plea deal still applies and questions the constitutionality of the gun charges.

In July, a potential plea deal involving Hunter Biden agreeing to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax violations and acknowledge the facts of the gun case, without facing a felony charge for unlawful firearm possession, fell through. This occurred after Judge Noreika expressed doubts about the agreement’s constitutionality, as reported by The Washington Post.

Currently, Hunter Biden faces two criminal indictments: one for gun charges in Delaware and another for tax charges in California. Additionally, House Republicans are investigating his business dealings as part of their broader inquiry into alleged influence peddling by Joe Biden.
