DOJ to Devon Archer: Go Ahead and Testify . . . and Then We Can Jail You

The Department of Justice caused a outcry this weekend when it filed a notice to a federal court on a Saturday that it should move ahead and order the jailing of Hunter Biden’s former business associate and friend, Devon Archer. That came less than 48 hours before Archer was scheduled to give potentially explosive testimony on the Biden corruption scandal. The Justice Department decided that the matter was so urgent that it required a weekend filing before Archer testifies. The optics could not be worse and many took the letter as an effort to intimidate Archer. Then the next day the Justice Department sent a second letter to the court saying it can wait to arrest him after he testifies. After the debacle in Delaware where the Justice Department seemed entirely confused on its own filings, the letters only reaffirmed the image of a department adrift in this expanding scandal.

On Saturday, the Justice Department told Judge Ronnie Abrams of the Southern District of New York that the court should move toward ordering the incarceration of Archer. The timing was viewed by many as intimidating and was reminiscent of the IRS visiting the home of journalist Matt Taibbi on the day that he was testifying to disclose the government’s massive censorship program. (Later, the ranking Democratic member Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI) suggested that Taibbi could be arrested for perjury).

The Justice Department then sent a second letter to the court saying that it can wait: ‘To be clear, the Government does not request (and has never requested) that the defendant [Archer] surrender before his Congressional testimony.” Archer can testify . . . and then we can incarcerate him.

The letters seem to be speaking to Congress, the public, and, of course, Archer rather than the court itself. The Justice Department continues to stumble through this scandal. While it allowed major felonies to expire in the Hunter Biden investigation, it seems on a hair trigger for those who may accuse him or the Department of wrongdoing.

It often seems like the Justice Department under Merrick Garland is a series of step-on-the-rake moments.

  1. In case the facts in this situation aren’t clear enough (they are), we have that moron, Joe Biden, actually bragging, ON VIDEO, “son of a B*tch, they fired the guy”. The need for this mentally feeble (prior to his dementia) moron to brag and puff his chest should be studied by teams of shrinks in Vienna.

    I just want to add that Dan Goldman is the gift that keeps giving. He was flushed, breathless and ridiculous in his “weather defense” today. The last time I heard something so childish was Bill Clinton meeting Loretta Lynch on the tarmac to discuss grandkids.

    In politics being shameless is a superpower.

    1. The sole purpose for the 20-odd phone calls, and the in person meeting drop-ins, was to provide proof to Hunter’s foreign “clients” they have a friend at the highest levels of American government. No need to talk “business” when the nature of the business is influence peddling.

      1. How could they discuss business when there was no business outside of influence peddling. WTF business were they gonna discuss. Thats been the question all along. What exactly was Hunter’s business? Instead, ATS wants us to believe the drug addict was selling boxes of air.

  2. What is most instructive is the conspiracy of government, government agencies and media to block the story, create a smokescreen and run interference to anyone seeking truth and facts. If it were not so consequential, it would almost be comical.

    It is too bad Mort Drucker who drew so many sarcastic political stories for MAD MAGAZINE has passed on. It is time for fearless comedians to put this bizarre cadre I the full spotlight by using humor. It is too bad the DOJ won’t do its job.

  3. The only remaining question is how many years in jail Trump will spend for Biden’s crimes. @ScottAdamsSays

  4. “The Justice Department then sent a second letter to the court saying that it can wait: ‘To be clear, the Government does not request (and has never requested) that the defendant [Archer] surrender before his Congressional testimony.” Archer can testify . . . and then we can incarcerate him.”
    The evdence of the corruption in the Dim Party at all levels along with their brazen paid muscle in the DOJ is just overwhelming and disgusting all at the same time. The Bidens make the Corleone’s blush; Goldman is a prattering fool and Coons just can’t seem to find a kernel in a corn field. Never in our history have we owed so little to so many for such much crapola being tossed our way. (Apologies Winnie). In a sane world, we stack them like cord wood on a leaky boat and send them off to Borneo but the happy Dayak people there don’t deserve to have to deal with our clutter. Let’s just toss them out on their ears and hope to never see their kind again.

    1. mespo……..I also hope to never see their kind again….but aren’t ya gonna miss, just a teensy bit, insanity like mandatory tampon machines in the boys’ bathrooms in public schools, female supreme court justices who cannot define what a woman is, (how about what a DUMB woman is?), crossdressers, in high level positions of Federal Agencies flaunting their latest baggage claim heists at airports, illegal aliens ordering room service and other amenities free of charge in swanky NYC hotels,,,etc!!!!!!

  6. If i was the house minority leader, i would ask dan goldman to please not give any more impromptu news conferences. What a freaking moron! Every time he opens his mouth he looks like an imbecile. All he had to say was that Joe was glad handing rando people that he had no idea who they were. I guess he completely missed the part where Archer said that Joe was on the phone to “sell the brand”.
    I guess Joe was the only one who didnt know why he was on the phone. The guy’s not too bright, but he’s not that big of an idiot.

  8. Let’s just think about it. Who takes a call from his daddy during a business meeting and puts dad on speakerphone. It’s another thing to put dad on speakerphone if your business partners would benefit from your daddy’s involvement. Talk to you later son. Hunter says after the call, okay fellas just sign right here.

    1. Joe Biden has been in Public Office for 19,200 Days to date.

    2. “Let’s just think about it. Who takes a call from his daddy during a business meeting and puts dad on speakerphone. ”

      I would have if dad had clout in my business affairs and I needed that clout. Otherwise I would want to keep dad out, so that my partners would see me as the real deal. The whole idea is to instill confidence. Hunter had nothing. Joe had the power of the Presidency. It shouldn’t take much thought for our fellow leftists to figure out.

    3. Hunter is indeed a “Fortunate Son*” by virtue if his Father,
      He’s also the designated Proxy-Son of his Father.

  9. The Democrats polled the American populace and they found that most Americans think that it is a sleazy thing for Papa Joe to not recognize one of his granddaughters. So what does Joe do? He changes his mind after four long years. Four years of not recognizing her birthday. Four years of not giving her a Christmas present. Four years of not encouraging her about how smart she is getting. Will there now be a stocking on the mantle for Navy? How does she get those four years back. The only reason your recognizing her now is because it’s politically expedient to do so. Joe, your nothin but a lyin dog faced pony soldier who don’t admit havin your kin. A redneck in spit shined shoes.

  10. Just quick post to push dennis’ irrelevant drivel down the board. No one wants to read that garbage when they first log on

  11. Jonathan: Who is Devon Archer? He is a former business partner of Hunter Biden. In 2016, while Joe Biden was VP, Archer and others (not including Hunter) were indicted on charges they defrauded members of a Native American tribe. They were found guilty in 2018, and this past February Archer was sentenced to a year in prison. He appealed his sentence but it was upheld. This was way before the GOP took back control of the House or even began their investigation of Hunter Biden. On 7/29 the US attorney, Damion Williams, wrote a letter to the supervising judge in which he did not demand Archer be immediately arrested and imprisoned.

    Archer’s attorney was aware the controversy about the timing of the arrest and sentencing of his client and issued this statement: “We are aware of speculation that the Department of Justice weekend request to have Mr. Archer report to prison in an attempt by the Biden administration to intimidate him in advance of his meeting with House Oversight Committee. To be clear, Mr. Archer does not agree with that speculation”.

    That should have settled the issue. But to make sure there was no misunderstanding Williams sent a second letter to the court and stated clearly: “Nonetheless, for avoidance of all doubt, the Government requests that any surrender date, should the Court order one, be scheduled to occur after the defendant’s Congressional testimony us completed”.

    So it is clear. The DOJ was not trying to intimidate Archer or prevent him from testifying. But this did not stop James Comer and Matt Gaetz on Fox, falsely alleging the DOJ was trying to intimidate Archer. Gaetz went further claiming the DOJ was “actively committing the crime of obstructing a Congressional investigation”. Facts don’t matter to Comer or Gaetz and the rest of the MAGA Republicans in the House. They are obsessed with the conspiracy theory that Jack Smith, Letitia James, Alvin Bragg and Fani Willis are all part of–what DJT calls a “massive interference with an election”. Does any reasonable person really think 4 separate state and federal prosecutors all got together in a hotel room and conspired to prevent DJT from becoming the GOP nominee next year by making up criminal charges? That is the really bizarre part of all this.

    But getting back to Archer’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee. Fox Host Bartiromo has provided a platform for Comer and Gaetz–implying that Archer’s testimony will NECESSARILY be damning for Hunter Biden. Even you try to claim
    Archer’s testimony could be “potentially explosive”. And this is before Archer has even taken the witness stand! Assuming facts not in evidence is not something a law professor and attorney should engage in. Contrived speculation and innuendo is all that is going on here. I say let’s wait to see what Archer has to say before we engage in drawing ANY unwarranted conclusions.

    1. No Dennis, what is bizarre is your obsession with talking about DJT, in threads having to do with anything but.

      “They are obsessed with the conspiracy theory that Jack Smith, Letitia James, Alvin Bragg and Fani Willis are all part of–what DJT calls a “massive interference with an election”. Does any reasonable person really think 4 separate state and federal prosecutors all got together in a hotel room and conspired to prevent DJT from becoming the GOP nominee next year by making up criminal charges? That is the really bizarre part of all this.“

      And by the way, Letitia James and Alvin Bragg are bot serious people. Now i am certain that you aren’t either.

    2. I say let’s wait to see what Archer has to say before we engage in drawing ANY unwarranted conclusions.

      The “conclusions” that have been drawn are not rooted in “Schiff-like” imaginations, but rather sound, reasonable, evidence-based proof that the Biden family has been operating a treasonous crime syndicate for nearly a decade. The fact you need to “wait and see” anything at this point reflects such a disconnect from reality, that you are either a party to the coverup or mentally incompetent.

    3. Hey Dennis once again your slow on the uptake. Archer told lawmakers, “Burisma would have gone out of business had the Biden brand not been invoked. People would be intimidated to legally mess with Burisma because of the Biden family brand.” So you want to wait until Archer tells the tale. Well, their it is for you in black and white. You could have found it with five minutes of research but your psychological addiction just wouldn’t allow you to search for anything that might burst your bubble. A sign of maturity is to seek and accept the facts whatever they might be. Enough said.

    4. “That should have settled the issue. “

      Intimidation is not meant to be combined with proof, but coincidences make on suspicious. The same type of thing happened to Matt Taibbi.

      Your facts are thin at best (most are false) and your interpretations thinner.

  12. Devon Archer testimony. Archer told lawmakers, “Burisma would have gone out of business had the Biden brand not been invoked. People would be intimidated to legally mess with Burisma because of the Biden family brand.” So to make sure of what the Biden family brand looked like he put dear old pops on the phone while he was having a business dinner with his Ukrainian employers. Joe didn’t have to say a thing. He just had to show up to represent the Biden (brand) power. Then came the ching ching ching for poor little Hunter. Burisma would be protected. Sounds like a protection racket to me. Hey Mr. Boot maker, youse needs to be protected so’s your shop don’t burn down. We can offer you the protection you need for a very nominal fee. No real talk of business would be needed just a little question like hows your lovely daughter doin in school would get the message across loud and clear. The protection required would cost The United States a cool one billion dollars.

  13. Archer said Zlochevsky and Pozharski “placed constant pressure on Hunter Biden to get help from D.C.” in getting Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin ousted. Shokin was investigating Burisma for corruption.

    Archer testified that on Dec. 4, 2015, Hunter Biden, Zlochevsky and Pozharski “called D.C.” to discuss the matter. Archer testified that Biden, Zlochevsky, and Pozharski stepped away to take make the call.

    It is unclear if Hunter and the Burisma executives spoke directly to Joe Biden on the matter.

    Archer testified that just days later, on Dec. 9, 2015, Joe Biden traveled to Ukraine and made a speech. Biden, during the speech, said the government needed to fix the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office.

    Phone records will show who the hell that POS spoke to and when…

    1. If the House fails to open an impeachment inquiry after this they are useless. The benefit of doing so is that the courts will give less deference to assertions of executive privilege if a subpoena is issued as part of an impeachment inquiry. I believe the theory is that it’s akin to a grand jury proceeding, which since Nixon has trumped assertions of executive privilege.

      1. Daniel, I have heard another type of inquiry provides the same benefits as an impeachment inquiry. Biden is a millstone around the Democrats, and solid news is starting to filter to the people, bypassing the dishonest MSM.

        We have to think of the Senatorial and Congressional elections from the point of view of the Independents and Democrats that might be thinking of changing their votes. Could the words impeachment create enough sympathy that states where the color is changing from blue to red impede that change?

        That is what counts. Doesn’t the continuous revelations of Democrat lies, abuse, and ’treason’ push voters in the right direction in those states moving red? The impeachment focuses on Biden, but we need the focus on the Democrats’ continuous support of Biden despite his crimes.

        I want the focus on Democrats to the point they need Biden’s impeachment more than the Republicans. One can consider impeachment later, and we must realize that at this time, it wouldn’t lead to a conviction. Therefore, presently, what is to be gained?

        IMO, things are too fluid at the moment to go for impeachment.

        1. @S Meyer,
          Let me rephrase your post in simple terms…

          If you don’t impeach Biden, he’s the Dem’s POTUS candidate in 2024.
          All of this information comes out and you can nail him to the proverbial cross.

          Not to mention you don’t risk having Kamel Toe being POTUS.

          Now once Dems figure this out… want to see how many of them flip to want to impeach him?

          BTW, if you don’t impeach… he doesn’t win in 2024 …you then get to charge him and Hunter on tax evasion… no one to pardon them.


          1. It is only an impeachment inquiry that can break though impediments to discovery.

            In any event it is now clear that Joe Biden as VP was Zlochevsky’s “Krysha,” or “roof” (protection) in Russian. As Archer testified, the “brand” would intimidate others into taking a hands off approach to Burisma. And when the intimidation failed, Biden would have the power, and obligation, to take out Burisma’s enemies. That’s what he and Hunter were being paid for, and that’s what they delivered. As the US point man in Ukraine, he was the most powerful man there.

            We are witnessing the greatest corruption scandal in US history. And as a result, Biden is compromised. His Presidency could be ended by Ukrainians or Chinese who have evidence of bribery/extortion.

            The House should rule out any future aid to Ukraine until Zelensky produces the witnesses and evidence they have. Trump was on the right track, which may be why he was impeached.

            1. “It is only an impeachment inquiry that can break though impediments to discovery.”

              I heard from one of the more reliable people that there was an alternate inquiry that could get the same things. If not, I would consider an impeachment inquiry only to accumulate the data. Unless conviction is assured, impeachment at this time is too dangerous when considering public opinion.

              Biden is guilty, and even though John doesn’t like to use the word treason, Biden, in my eyes, committed treason but cannot be punished for treason, based on the Constitution. He can, however, be punished for what he did. He is not my main focus now because I think, at present, he is a dead end.

              1. Beg to differ.

                An impeachment inquiry is NOT dangerous, nor is and impeachment and referal to the Senate for trial.

                However the House should not push the Senate into a trial unless there is something to be gained from a trial.

                I am not at all opposed to a SNAP impeachment of Biden and a Senate Trial.

                I just do not think it is strategically and tactically the best choice.

                Given the near certainty that the Senate is not actually removing anyone right now.

                There are only a few reasons for the house to refer an impeachment to the Senate.

                One is the public exposure of corruption and evidence to a broader audience that would result.
                Another is to tie up the Senate.
                Another is to get democrats to vote on the record and speak on the record.

                Regardless, we are well past the “is there a sound basis to impeach” question. That does not mean that Republicans should not dot their eyes and cross their T’s in the process.

                Frankly I think the House should impeach and the Senate should remove Biden. And the standard has been met.

                VP Bidne either was accpeting bribes – highly likely, or defrauding foreign governments and foreign billionaires.
                There is no longer a question that VP Biden was involved. Frankly the claim he was dfrauding the people who were paying him rather than doing what he was bribed to do is a fig leaf. But if that helps to vote to remove – then take the fig leaf.

                We have never in US history had so clear a case for impeachment.

                Nor do I care if that results in President Harris.
                As Boneparte said – when your enemy is screwing up – do not stop them. a few months of a Harris presidency would be a disaster for democrats.

                But Biden is not going to be removed. So the question then is what is the most advantageous way for Republicans to proceed.

                My Arguemtn is that an impeachment inquiry of Garland allows them to highlight EVERYTHING that is beneficial to expose.

                I would stick to Garland – leave the threat open for everyone else. But do not act Yet, or possibly ever.

                I suspect Garland will resign before facing a serious impeachment inquiry – and that is helpful to Republicans.
                But if he does not proceeding is a win too. I would also actually refer him to the Senate for trial – but not until building a damning case through impeachment hearings. Again Garland will resign first. But assuming he does not – force the democrats to vote.

                AFTER Garland has been impeached THEN they can proceed to others – Biden, ….

                1. “However the House should not push the Senate into a trial unless there is something to be gained from a trial.”

                  This is the essential part of my point. As much as I would like Joe Biden be charged with treason, impeached and jailed, politically he is a dead end. We have to weigh the risks to the benefits and that is based on the number of House and Senate seats to be gained or lost. There are risks to all actions. If the Republicans were statesmen and some Democrats were as well I would have no problem with impeachment, but I have no faith in our representatives.

              2. Right now if there was an election – we would have Trump with the politically motivated charges against him Vs. Biden – the person behind those charges seeking to protect himself from more serious charges.

                The WORST case scenario for Republicans right now is Biden Resigns NOW, Harris becomes president.
                Newsome announces, and Smith and Bragg proceed against Trump.

                Biden is no longer an issue. The democrats as a whole are not tarred by their defense of Biden. Newsome has lots of problems – but being bribed by hostile foreign powers is not among those.

                It is near certain DOJ will continue against Trump if Biden resigned. And that will be viewed differently with Biden gone.

                It will not BE different – I do not actually think Biden is driving the Trump indictments. I think Deep State self preservation instincts are – and Biden’s resignation will not change that.

                The election we want in 2024 is Biden Vs. Trump – with Biden vs DeSantis as the backup.
                It is 2028 that may feature the DeSantis Newsome election.

                Also my 2024 election goal is NOT to elect Trump – it is to clean house within the Deep State.

          2. “If you don’t impeach Biden, he’s the Dem’s POTUS candidate in 2024.”

            Likely. Impeachment will not significantly alter that event.

            “Now once Dems figure this out… want to see how many of them flip to want to impeach him?”

            Yes. I wish to build Democrat opposition to Biden and the Democrat Party. Let the Dems take the fall for impeaching him at this time or take the blame for his actions.

            If Biden sees charges against him likely, he will pardon himself and his son before the next President takes office.

            Our job is to cause Democrats to sour on their party while we take the House and Senate. Impeachment at this time will not be beneficial in that endeavor which is my primary focus.

  14. What I want Comer to do next is to subpoena the National Archives for ONE SINGLE shred of documentary evidence that the Obama administration ever specifically authorized Sleepy Joe (who has no authority at all) to coerce the government of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor in exchange for $1B dollars.

    I would also like Dennis, Gigi, or ATS to explain how the action of Joe Bribin’ was not a “threat to democracy”. Or is it so that only the US ruling class get to decide which democracies are entitled to self governance??

  15. ‘statutes of limitation’ may apply as technically to a Conviction, but as far as entering “evidence of VP Biden breaking laws” it is admissible as evidence. A statute of limitations tells you the time frame when the prosecution must bring a charge for a crime. If Pres. Biden is being tried for current Crimes, then previous Crimes that are past a statute of limitations he cannot be Convicted for. They (ten previous Crimes) are fair game for ‘evidence’.

    1. Statute of Limitations goes away when there’s a conspiracy involved…
      The clock stops.

      So Biden as Senator… good luck in trying to show a conspiracy… but Biden as VP? oh yeah… different story.

  16. News flash. Devon Archer confirms that Hunter had Joe on speaker phone during his business meetings with the Ukrainians and the Chinese. What was the instant spin of the left? Hunter just had Joe on the phone to say his howdy doos. It sure seems like a long ways from Joe saying that he never had any contacts with Hunters’ business buddies. What’s a little Tate-a-tete with your closest Chinese money laundering friends. Joe in on the meetings was just a little exercise of congeniality and had nothing to do with Hunter sealing the deal. Riiight. Perhaps a miracle will be performed and enough percentage of those who have been blinded will finally see the light. Just enough to effect the election in November 2024.

    1. TiT,
      I just got done reading Dan Goldman (D-NY) saying yes, Archer says Biden was present for about 20 meetings . . . but they only talked about the weather.

      1. @Upstate Farmer…

        I’m sure they just talked in ‘code’ just like never calling Joe, Joe but calling him the ‘big guy’.

        In other news… they’ve uncovered half a dozen or so off shore bank accounts for the Bidens.
        (I forget the actual number)

        Supposedly millions in funds.
        Talk about tax evasion for all of them…

        Now granted Joe could claim he forgot he had them… and it would be believable. But since they’re going after Trump… he should still face the music as well.
        This way they can both be cell mates. (To be clear… Joe not Hunter. Hunter will be in gen pop) )


    2. @TiT
      From one of the articles… here’s a very interesting quote:
      “Archer testified that Joe Biden did not engage in business specific on such calls, instead he “was put on the phone to sell ‘the brand,'” the source said.”

      While the Democrat Shill on the committee rushes to point out that there’s no evidence of Joe talking to Hunter about his business. The reality is that the fact that Joe took Hunter’s call to talk about ‘nothing’ was the business. That the whole point was to show everyone that Hunter had a direct 24/7 line to Joe and that Joe would listen and take care of what was needed. The implications was that Hunter would talk to Daddy offline and get stuff done.

      The fact that Joe bragged about it and it was played on C-SPAN… shows just how brazen they could be.

      Archer’s testimony is damning evidence which the dimwitted Dem just told the press …


    3. @Upstate and TiT,

      Go to the NY Post.
      Excellent article that spells out how this leads to a bribery scandal….
      Dan Goldman may have thought he had the spin under control… “Oh they never talked shop…” but then there’s a couple of quotes from a former government agent who kinda shows how this is actually part of a criminal activity.

      I’m not sure how Turley’s site handle’s external links, but its ‘front page’ news.


  17. One solution that voters of both parties may be happy with:

    Jack Smith – also a war crimes prosecutor – indicts (and disbars) the former DOJ torture attorneys under George W. Bush for intentionally committing legal malpractice (renaming a centuries old torture technique that the USA itself prosecuted others for). There is no statute of limitations on war crimes. Indictment can happen 40 years or more later.

    Since the Bush DOJ torture attorneys attended law school and torture interrogators didn’t, those war crime indictments stop there with the attorneys – unless interrogators exceeded the torture attorneys’ legal guidelines or other extraordinary evidence comes to light.

    Trump (and accessories) gets offered a plea deal to plead guilty to “Section 3 of the 14th Amendment” – meaning little to no prison time but Trump (and accessories) can never be in a future position of governing over anyone for life.

    Most importantly this plan creates a “deterrent effect” against future coup plotters and future war criminals (Bush torture attorneys). Since many Trump supporters are likely already blacklisted for life, this minimizes these illegal Cointelpro style tactics going forward.

    It would also require official apologies and other compensation to all the Bush war crime victims, not just Americans, but people like CIA agent John Kiriakou – sent to prison for refusing to torture. Or Joseph Nacchio, CEO of Qwest Communications, sent to prison for refusing to participate in felony crimes pushed by Bush’s DOJ.

    1. It would make all of us thrilled beyond compare if you stopped acting so bat sheet crazy like your ex-bf and left wing, troll farm grifter, David Brock.

  18. Professor Turley: “Merrick Garland is a person with unimpeachable ethics and integrity.” (8/16/22)
    “It often seems like the Justice Department under Merrick Garland is a series of step-on-the-rake moments.” (today)

    I get it, if the DOJ does anything untoward, it is just an accident.

  19. The DOJ’s letter was totally routine, simply asking the court to schedule a turn-in date for Devon Archer after he lost his appeal. That’s not witness intimidation.

    1. Sure! The fact that they sent it on a weekend before he was going to testify before Congress about corrupt actions by the President? Total coincidence!

      Which even “anonymous doesn’t believe. Which was hy there’s no name attached, because the position is so stupid that it doesn’t even want a fake name associated with it

    2. Routine as in extremely rare sense of the word. The DoJ rarely sends a letter to the court asking for a sentencing hearing date. Its bad form to tell the court how to run their court. It is an unnecessary ruffling of feathers. The courts feathers.
