Naomi Biden Testifies in Support of Father as Hunter’s Gun Trial Continues

In Delaware last week, the eldest daughter of Hunter Biden, Naomi Biden, went to the court to show support for her father during his gun trial. She talked about the tough times her father faced after the death of his brother, Beau Biden, in 2015. She believed her father was in a state of sobriety when he purchased the gun in question. However, federal prosecutor Leo Wise challenged her beliefs during cross-examination. He suggested that Hunter was meeting with a drug dealer instead of spending time with his daughter.

The defense attorney, Abbe Lowell, also placed some blame on Naomi for the lack of time they spent together. After Naomi’s testimony, there was a noticeable somber atmosphere in the courtroom. James “Jimmy” Biden, Hunter’s uncle, who was set to testify, left without offering an explicit reason. The defense announced that no other witnesses, except potentially Hunter himself, would be called to the stand.

Legal experts have advised against Hunter testifying in his own trial, citing potential risks and the belief that Hunter has already shared his story in his own words through his audiobook. President Joe Biden has stated that he would not pardon Hunter in the event that he is convicted of the firearm felonies. Jill Biden, Hunter’s stepmother, has observed the trial and has been seen leaving mid-day. Other family members, including Ashley Biden, Valerie Biden Owens, and John T. Owens, have also been in attendance.

The prosecution presented ten witnesses, including FBI special agent Erika Jensen, three of Hunter’s exes, the individual who sold Hunter the gun, and various law enforcement officers and forensic experts. On the other hand, the defense had only three witnesses testify. Hunter’s defense attorney has requested that the court acquit his client prior to the jury deliberating the case, citing Second Amendment grounds and legislative changes to relevant statutes.

The trial’s proceedings have sparked discussions regarding whether Hunter should testify and the involvement of the Biden family in the trial. As the trial continues, it remains to be seen what actions the defense will take and how the case will ultimately unfold.
