The Hunter Biden Plea Deal Is a Sham

We are not surprised that the Biden Justice Department struck a corrupt plea deal with Hunter Biden for misdemeanor tax violations and a false statement tied to a gun purchase.

The Garland Justice Department’s disparate treatment of Hunter Biden and President Trump is an abomination unto the law. The sweetheart plea deal with Hunter Biden is a “thumb in the eye” to the fair administration of law. This is a miscarriage of justice whose chief beneficiary is President Biden. For far too long, Biden has avoided any serious investigation of his involvement in Hunter’s corrupt foreign business dealings. The plea deal, which doesn’t address the strong evidence of Biden family racketeering, is a sham.

Garland has now cleared the board for Biden’s reelection campaign by arresting Trump and shutting down the Biden family corruption issue with this rigged plea deal. And by refusing to appoint a special counsel, Garland avoids having to issue a public report disclosing the facts and details behind this charade. The Justice Department has been irredeemably compromised by its politicized prosecutions and cover-ups.

Congress now has no choice but to initiate an immediate impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden and Merrick Garland. In the meantime, Judicial Watch will continue its leadership role of investigating and exposing the worsening Biden corruption crisis through numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), federal, and state lawsuits.


Judicial Watch Sues DHS for Records Tied to Election Censorship Collusion

In 2018 Congress created the Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency (CISA) to protect our country’s vital infrastructure. In that short time, it seems, this relatively obscure agency has stuck its fingers where they don’t belong.

We filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for all records of communications tied to the Election Integrity Partnership (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:23-cv-01698)).

We sued in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the DHS’s Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency failed to comply with an October 27, 2022, FOIA request for:

1. All emails, direct messages, task management alerts, or other records of communication related to the work of the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP) sent via the Atlassian Jira platform between any official or employee of the Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency and any member, officer, employee, or representative of any of the following:

  • The Election Integrity Partnership
  • The University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public
  • Stanford University’s Internet Observatory
  • The Center for Internet Security
  • The Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing & Analysis Center
  • The National Association of Secretaries of State
  • The National Association of State Election Directors
  • Graphika
  • The Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensics Research Laboratory
  • Any social media company

2. All memoranda of understanding, guidelines, or similar records related to the Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency’s use of the Atlassian Jira platform for work related to the Election Integrity Partnership.

Jira is a software application developed by the Australian company Atlassian. The Atlassian website states: “Jira helps teams plan, assign, track, report, and manage work. It brings teams together for everything from agile software development, customer support, start-ups, and enterprises.”

Based on representations from the Election Integrity Partnership (see here and here), the federal government, social media companies, the EIP, the Center for Internet Security (a non-profit organization funded partly by DHS and the Defense Department) and numerous other leftist groups communicated privately via the Jira platform.

In a July 2022 blog, the Election Integrity Partnership states: “The EIP’s core conveners are the Stanford Internet Observatory and the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public. We work in collaboration with some of the nation’s leading institutions focused on analysis of online harms, including the National Conference on Citizenship, Graphika, and the Digital Forensic Research Lab.”

To be blunt, the Biden DHS is unlawfully hiding evidence of their election interference and censorship of Americans.

In January 2023we sued the DOJ for records of communications between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and social media sites regarding foreign influence in elections, as well as the Hunter Biden laptop story.

In September 2022, we sued the Secretary of State of the State of California for having YouTube censor a Judicial Watch election integrity video.

In May 2022, YouTube censored our video about Biden corruption and integrity issues in the 2020 election. The video, titled “Impeach? Biden Corruption Threatens National Security,” was falsely determined to be “election misinformation” and removed by YouTube, and Judicial Watch’s YouTube account was suspended for a week. The video featured an interview with me. We continue to post our videos on our Rumble channel (

In April 2021, we published documents revealing how California state officials pressured social media companies (Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube)) to censor posts about the 2020 election.

In May 2021, we revealed documents showing that Iowa state officials pressured social media companies Twitter and Facebook to censor posts about the 2020 election.

In July 2021, we uncovered records from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which revealed that Facebook coordinated closely with the CDC to control the COVID narrative and “misinformation” and that over $3.5 million in free advertising given to the CDC by social media companies.


After Billions in Haiti Aid Vanish U.S. Allots Millions for Climate Funding

It is reported that more civilians have been killed in Haiti this year than in Ukraine, as gang violence dominates the streets. The billions we have sent there over the years seem to have had little effect, but now, as our Corruption Chronicles blog explains, we’re continuing to throw good money after bad.

Rife with fraud and corruption, the U.S. government’s multi-billion-dollar Haiti aid program has failed miserably to help citizens of the impoverished island nation, yet the Biden administration is sending tens of millions more under the auspice of Caribbean climate funding. At a recent meeting in the Bahamas, Vice President Kamala Harris unveiled a new $100 million allocation from American taxpayers earmarked as general “support for the Caribbean” to among other things transition renewable energy, address climate change and resilience building across the region. The money will also address energy, food security and humanitarian needs in the various islands.

Buried deep in this month’s announcement is that fact that the biggest chunk of money will go to Haiti, though billions in U.S. aid have disappeared over the years as American taxpayer dollars keep flowing to the poverty-stricken country with no oversight. In fact, billions in U.S. assistance—with billions more from the international community—has made little difference. Since the 2010 earthquake Uncle Sam alone has provided Haiti with over$5.6 billion to help it bounce back but more than a decade later that has not materialized and no one really knows what happened to the money. The funds were supposed to provide Haiti with “life-saving post-disaster relief as well as longer-term recovery, reconstruction, and development programs,” according to the State Department, which confirms that after the 2021 earthquake the U.S. “again mobilized a whole-of-government effort to provide immediate assistance at the Haitian government’s request.” Haiti’s reconstruction and development will continue for many years, the State Department predicts, adding that since 2021 it has doled out a whopping $278 million in humanitarian and health assistance for Haiti.

The U.S.—under both Democratic and Republican administrations—has poured lots of money into Haiti despite systemic lapses in the programs it funds. For instance, a costly initiative a to build housing failed miserably after the U.S. spent $90 million and tens of thousands of Haitians remain homeless a decade later. The Clinton Foundation and Clinton Bush Haiti Fund also came up with some $88 million for earthquake recovery but Haiti remains a disaster, the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Even before the tremor a federal audit revealed that hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars were wasted on reckless Haitian projects with the single largest chunk—$170.3 million—going to a failed port and power plant adventure heavily promoted by Bill and Hillary Clinton. The Clinton-backed power and port venture is the biggest and most expensive failure mentioned in the probe, which was ordered by a Florida congresswoman who at the time confirmed a “troubling lack of progress and accountability” in Haiti reconstruction projects. All these years later many Haitians still live in deplorable, shanty town tent cities and a never-ending epidemic of cholera keeps claiming lives. Nearly half of the Haitian population does not have enough food, according to the United Nations, which confirms that armed gangs have overrun most of the country’s capital of Port-au-Prince.

Where has all the U.S. aid gone and why does the government keep sending our taxpayer dollars when it has failed to help the Haitian people? Earlier this year the Biden administration awarded Haiti another $56.5 million in humanitarian aid, explaining that it was “for the people of Haiti in response to the country’s humanitarian crisis and cholera epidemic.” This month’s allocation includes $54 million to counter the island’s “humanitarian crisis,” including gang violence on civilians that has prevented Haitians from accessing critical food, safe drinking water and other basic supplies. More than $10.4 million will go to Haiti’s agricultural and livestock sector to enhance resilience and productivity that will improve food security. “This new funding will provide vulnerable Haitians with urgently needed humanitarian assistance, including vital food assistance, as 4.9 million people face acute food insecurity amid the crisis,” according to the recent U.S. government announcement. “In addition, these funds will provide access to safe drinking water and health care, as well as support care for survivors of gender-based violence and other protection services for the most vulnerable.”
