Hunter Biden’s lawyers face potential sanctions from the rightfully annoyed Delaware judge in his tax case after an attorney allegedly played a dirty trick on a clerk.
Earlier today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith filed a brief to Judge Noreika, suggesting that she toss Hunter’s ‘sweetheart’ plea deal with Delaware prosecutors due to claims they gave the President’s son preferential treatment.
It is claimed that someone from Hunter’s attorney Chris Clark’s former law firm later called the Delaware clerk – pretending to be from the office of Smith’s attorney, Theodore Kittila – asking them to remove the original filing and, with it, 448 pages of Congressional testimony from the two IRS investigators who worked on the case.
The documents were then taken down and sealed.
#2 – Bud Light Takes Another Big Hit — Right in the Jobs of the Corporate Execs — by Nick Arama
We’ve been covering the continuing implosion of Bud Light, and now it’s just gotten a lot worse for them.
Anheuser-Busch InBev is now laying off hundreds of workers in its U.S. offices, after having months of falling sales in the wake of the boycott related to their relationship with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
The “workers” aren’t going to be the frontline guys such as the guys who brew the beer, drivers, or working guys — it’s going to be the people in the corporate offices, according to the report. The cuts would hit up to two percent of the 18,000 workforce. Two percent is about 360 workers.
That leads me to my favorite part of the exchange. After Christie finished, Brennan stared down at her desk, not wanting to acknowledge a word of what Christie had just said. She then tried the only deflection she had left.
BRENNAN: And you know that the US Attorney in Delaware was appointed by President Trump, on issues…
CHRISTIE: Incompetent Margaret. It doesn’t matter whether you were appointed by a Republican or a Democrat. If your work appears to be incompetent and inexplicable, you need to explain it.
#4 – WATCH: ‘Just Stop Oil’ Protesters Get a Taste of Their Own Medicine — by Bonchie
With the will to push back only growing, it was just a matter of time before the next escalation manifested. That happened when counter-protesters crashed a Just Stop Oil meeting with hilarious results.
The get-together was planned as a vegan meal (because, of course, it was) for activists in East London. Instead of being able to eat in peace and celebrate their “accomplishments,” though, two people from the counter-protest group Just Stop Pissing Everyone Off showed up to give Just Stop Oil a taste of its own medicine.
Specifically, they tied rape alarms to bundles of balloons and let them go. They floated to the top of the highly vaulted ceilings, leaving the climate activists scrambling to reach them.
#5 – Sen. John Kennedy Hilariously Puts UFO Congressional Hearing in Perspective With His Usual Flair — by Sister Toldjah
I know they say if you could actually clone someone that the clone would not be as good as the original, but I’m thinking that even a John Kennedy clone that was like 75 percent as chill as Sen. Kennedy would still be awesome.
As to what Kennedy said about the aliens not talking to us, he’s got a point. I mean considering what’s going on in this country today where right is wrong, wrong is right, and we’re told there are no physical differences between men and women, who could blame aliens for not wanting to talk to us?
