Hunter Biden Guilty on Felony Charges Amid Father’s Reelection Bid

Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden, was found guilty of three felony counts related to his purchase of a gun in 2018 while addicted to drugs. This comes as a major blow to the president, who is facing a tough reelection campaign.

The jury deliberated for three hours before delivering the guilty verdict. Hunter Biden hugged his attorneys and wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, after the verdict was announced. As a first-time, nonviolent offender, he faces a uncertain prison sentence of up to 25 years.

President Biden accepted the verdict and expressed his support for his son. He also focused on gun control during a speech, calling for stiffer background checks for gun purchases. His stance on gun control is a key part of his reelection campaign. 

 

Despite the guilty verdict, Hunter Biden plans to appeal. His legal team has argued that the federal law barring drug users from possessing guns is unconstitutional. President Biden expressed his unwavering support for his son, emphasizing the importance of family and recovery from addiction.

This conviction has further fueled the Republican party’s scrutiny of the Biden family’s business dealings and has become a central focus for their political attacks. Hunter Biden is also set to go on trial for failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes. The legal troubles surrounding his son have added an additional layer of complexity to President Biden’s reelection campaign.

The timeline of these events, just weeks before the first presidential debate, could impact public perception and potentially influence the outcome of the election. The Republican party has continued to raise questions about the Biden family’s business ties and their impact on the president.
