Hunter Biden Found Guilty on Federal Gun Charges

( – Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty in Delaware on all three counts against him for buying and owning a firearm while addicted to drugs.

On Tuesday, June 11th, a 12-person jury in Delaware found Hunter Biden guilty on three felony counts, marking the first time in American history that a sitting president’s child has been convicted of a felony crime. The jury determined that at the time that he purchased a firearm, he was addicted to crack cocaine and lied about his substance abuse.

One juror told reporters after the verdict that the president’s son “knew what he was doing” when asked to fill out the application to purchase the gun, and that “he knew he was an addict” when he checked the box on the form that said otherwise. “He knew he was using crack [cocaine],” the juror said.

When the verdict was read, Hunter Biden reportedly displayed no emotion, simply hugging his wife, Melissa, and shaking his attorneys’ hands. He said in a statement afterward that although he was “disappointed by the outcome,” he was “more grateful” for the “love and support” he experienced over the week of his trial from his wife and his family. The president’s son, referencing his past addiction, said that “recovery is possible by the grace of God” and that he was “blessed to experience that gift” every day despite still reaping the consequences of his addiction.

Among the family members who joined for support was Hunter Biden’s mother, First Lady Jill Biden, who attended much of the trial and sat in the front row.

The president did not attend his son’s trial, but did issue a statement after the verdict and said the White House would “accept the outcome” of the case and “respect the judicial process” as his son “considers an appeal.” Biden also noted the pride he feels in seeing someone he loves “come out the other side” of addiction, which he said many families could relate to. This line of sympathy is how he has generally leaned into Hunter Biden’s controversial past.
