When former Hollywood stars venture into the realm of politics and government matters during their discussions of the latest trends and divorces, it can become quite….entertaining.
During the latest episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg expressed her bewilderment at how Hunter Biden’s case had gone on for seven years.
"Maybe I'm crazy"
Whoopi whines the investigations into Hunter Biden are taking too long and that it's just a fishing expedition.

In a segment of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg used her rant to compare Hunter Biden to Jean Valjean, the protagonist of Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel “Les Misérables.”
In the novel, Valjean was pursued and harassed after spending 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. Whoopi stated:
“He’s like Jean Valjean. I feel like they are just…they gonna find something…seven years!” This comparison indicates how out-of-touch the ladies of “The View” are with reality, as similar sentiments were expressed by Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna of California who referred to Jean Valjean as “the person who had a sandwich.”

“Maybe I’m crazy but seems to me after seven years, you would know what your case is,” Whoopi continued.
Before Whoopi begins comparing Hunter Biden to Justin Martyr, it is important to examine the reasons why the investigation into Hunter Biden’s case remains ongoing.
In July of this year, two IRS investigators, Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, provided testimony before the House Oversight Committee in which they alleged that officials from both the Trump and Biden Administrations had impeded their efforts in investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes.
Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley further testified before the committee stating that “the Delaware USAO and Department of Justice handling of the Hunter Biden tax investigation was very different from any other case” he had seen during his fourteen years working for the IRS.
Criminal Investigator Joseph Ziegler (Whistleblower X) risks his career and reputation to blow the whistle after the investigation into Hunter Biden was “hamstrung, limited, and marginalized by DOJ officials as well as other U.S. Attorneys.”

“In this country, we believe in the rule of law, and that applies to everyone. There should not be a two-track justice system depending on who you are and who you’re connected to. Yet in this case, there was. At every stage, decisions were made that benefited the subject of the investigation.”
Shapley remarked that evidence, including Hunter Biden’s laptop, was withheld from investigators.
The Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office also delayed interviews, served document requests and pursued physical search warrants according to the House Oversight Committee news release.
It was deemed necessary by the investigators to have a special counsel for an in-depth investigation.
As evidenced by Hunter Biden’s circumstances, nepotism has played a role in creating an environment where such rules do not apply; where his paint splatter art sells for more than priceless works of art; and where no consequences are faced due to having powerful connections.
This double standard has been especially evident with those labeled as “domestic terrorists” simply for speaking out about their children’s education, or protesters whose lives were destroyed after taking part in a political demonstration; all while corruption continues to plague government and civil service on all levels.
