Kash Patel predicts media will push for Hunter Biden pardon, Gavin Newsom run for 2024
"You're gonna see the heat coming from the mainstream media," Patel said.
Former Trump advisor Kash Patel predicts that the media will use the recent indictment of Hunter Biden to encourage President Biden to step down and let the Democratic Party run California Gov. Gavin Newsom for president in 2024.
"You're gonna see the heat coming from the mainstream media that Joe Biden should pardon his son to save his son Hunter from the quote unquote 'bogus criminal prosecution by a Trump appointed special counsel,'" Patel said on the Thursday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "That's the narrative you're going to hear if you're not already hearing it."
"They're going to blame the Republicans and they're going to say 'Joe is the savior and secured justice for his son when no one else would,''' he continued. "And now we thank him for service and anoint Gavin Newsom to be the next candidate for the Democratic Party."
On Thursday, Hunter Biden was indicted on federal charges related to allegedly falsifying a gun application by failing to disclose he was using drugs at the time he filed for the permit in 2018.
The Delaware Grand Jury charges include two related to knowingly making a "false and fictitious written statement" by declaring that he was not using drugs when he purchased a firearm and another charge of possessing a firearm while using and being addicted to a drug, specifically crack cocaine.
Patel said that he doesn't believe the timing of this indictment is a coincidence, suggesting members of the Democratic party are using this as an opportunity to get rid of Biden as a candidate.
"You're gonna see some heat coming out of the Democratic Party in areas that you probably wouldn't have expected," he explained. "But don't for one second think it's a coincidence. They're working with the DOJ. The FBI is still leaking to them."
