Remember when rumors about the “Biden crime family” first started circulating? Unsurprisingly, Democrats everywhere were quick to circle the wagons.

But now, some of those wagons appear to be pulling out.

Enter Representative Jim Himes, a Democrat from Connecticut.

Like most of his usually loyal party, Himes has been rather silent regarding the now many accusations that Hunter Biden has been involved in some shady business dealings that could land him in prison. And so, it goes without saying that Hines would also be mum on any idea that Hunter’s father and the sitting president of the United States might either know about those deals or have been involved.

Now, however, he is at least entertaining the thought, as well as saying that any crimes should be punished.

Of course, he did it while trying to take a swipe at the Republican Party and Donald Trump. but he’s doing it nonetheless.

It happened on MSNBC recently, according to Fox News. Hines said, “Let me say something that you never heard a Republican member of Congress say in the four years of the Trump administration, which is that if Hunter broke the law, he should be prosecuted.”

Himes went on to say that “it is clear” so far that Hunter has already broken a few laws, including tax evasion and having possession of a handgun. And unlike a great many in his party, Hines has decided to sacrifice Hunter to save that party.

“He should be held accountable for that.”

The Connecticut lawman also says that Hunter should be held accountable for any other crimes he may have committed, including “trad(ing) on his father’s influence.”

Of course, Hines still holds that there is “no evidence” that Joe Biden should be impeached. But he does say that a “different conversation” is needed if evidence of that does come to light.

So no, Himes is not fully turning on Biden. However, admitting that punishment needs to happen for crimes committed is a sign that the Bidens may not have protection from the wagons for much longer.
