Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) reportedly criticized the arrangement President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden made with the Department of Justice on Tuesday to plead guilty to three federal offenses as a “sweetheart deal.”

Hunter Biden consented to plead guilty to two counts of failing to pay income taxes and entered into a pre-trial agreement for unlawfully possessing a firearm while using illegal drugs.

Republicans have criticized the agreement as another instance of Democrats receiving less severe punishments for their transgressions than Republicans.

“Looks like Hunter received a sweetheart deal and is not facing any charges on the massive corruption allegations. If Hunter was not connected to the elite DC class he would have been put in jail a long time ago,” the Florida Governor said in a tweet.

DeSantis, joined former President Donald Trump in criticizing the justice system’s alleged two tiers, or distinct sets of standards for friends and foes.

Trump argued that Hunter Biden’s legal troubles amounted to a “mere traffic ticket.”

The 37-count indictment against Trump is based on allegations that he mishandled classified documents after leaving office. He entered a not-guilty plea.

The former president could spend the remainder of his life in prison if he is convicted.
