Hunter Biden Found Guilty on All Federal Gun Charges

After only three hours of deliberation, a  jury in Wilmington, Delaware has found Hunter Biden guilty of all three federal gun charges tied to the possession of a gun while abusing drugs.

Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison for “lying on a federal screening form about his drug use, lying to a gun dealer and possessing the gun,” NBC News reported. As a first-time, nonviolent offender however,  Hunter is expected to get a shorter sentence.

Jill Biden, who has been attending the trial, reportedly missed the reading of the verdict, re-entering the courthouse shortly afterward.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika is expected to set Hunter Biden’s sentencing date soon. Hunter still faces a tax evasion federal trial in California this coming September.

More serious charges related to money laundering, bribery, illegal influence peddling, and operating as an unregistered foreign agent of corrupt foreign governments were never brought against the first son.

The gun and tax evasion charges came only after Noreika rejected the “sweetheart” plea deal between Special Counsel Delaware United States attorney David Weiss and the defendant.

The verdict came in as Joe Biden was preparing to speak at a gun control event in Atlanta, Georgia.

The elder Biden has previously stated that he will not pardon his son.

Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) the chair of the House Oversight Committee, praised the jury’s verdict, calling it “a step toward accountability.”

In a statement after the verdict, Joe Biden said that he accepts the outcome of the case.

“As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad,” Biden stated. “Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today.”

“So many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone you love come out the other side and be so strong and resilient in recovery.”

“As I also said last week, I will accept the outcome of this case and will continue to respect the judicial process as Hunter considers an appeal,” he added. “Jill and I will always be there for Hunter and the rest of our family with our love and support. Nothing will ever change that.”

The Trump presidential campaign said in a statement that the gun trial was nothing more than a distraction from “the Biden crime family’s” more serious offenses.

“This trial has been nothing more than a distraction from the real crimes of the Biden Crime Family, which has raked in tens of millions of dollars from China, Russia and Ukraine,” said Trump’s national press secretary Karoline Leavitt. “Crooked Joe Biden’s reign over the Biden Family Criminal Empire is all coming to an end on November 5th, and never again will a Biden sell government access for personal profit.”
