President Joe Biden is reportedly feeling the weight of his son Hunter Biden’s legal troubles and worrying that they may not be resolved before his own potential demise. Last week, Special Counsel David Weiss indicted Hunter Biden on three gun-related charges, which could potentially result in 25 years of prison time. However, Hunter Biden’s legal team believes that the charges will be dismissed before trial, much to the surprise of the president.
The Bidens have come to accept the possibility that Hunter’s legal problems may worsen in the coming months, according to a source close to the family. There are even suggestions that more charges, such as tax violations, could be brought against the president’s son. President Biden, now 80 years old, has expressed his concern that his son’s case may not be resolved before he passes away. It is a somber realization for any parent to have.
The close relationship between Hunter and Joe Biden is well-known, with the two frequently speaking on the phone and discussing politics. Hunter even serves as an informal adviser to the president, influencing his speeches. President Biden has always defended his son, expressing his trust and faith in him. This ongoing legal situation only serves to make him feel proud of his son, despite the troubles he faces.
I don't have an once of sympathy or empathy for Joe Biden's dilemma!
How could he not understand that everything Hunter has been up to with him is corrupt, illegal, and immoral?
Hunter has been a bad boy for some time now! 😳https://t.co/MqyArCYt9G

On the other hand, former press secretary to Jill Biden, Michael LaRosa, believes that the weight of Hunter’s legal troubles is extremely emotionally taxing for the president. Joe Biden wakes up every day thinking about his deceased son and may even cry due to the weight of the situation. It is a heavy burden for any individual to bear, let alone the leader of a nation.
This personal anguish for Joe Biden coincides with the White House’s refusal to fully cooperate with the House’s impeachment inquiry. Republicans are investigating whether the president played any role in his family’s business dealings. The House Oversight Committee intends to subpoena Hunter and James Biden’s personal and business bank records, adding fuel to the fire. It seems that the Biden family’s troubles are far from over.
