During a recent White House press briefing, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre offered a clear response to the ongoing speculation about whether President Joe Biden would pardon his son, Hunter Biden, if he were to be convicted on firearm-related charges.
Reporters Were Asking About the Possibility
This declaration came during a White House press briefing in response to a reporter’s question about the possibility of a presidential pardon or commutation for Hunter Biden.
Question Had Already Been Answered
Ms. Jean-Pierre reiterated her stance, noting that she had previously addressed the same question a few weeks ago, making it clear that such actions were not on the table.
Hunter Biden Faces Major Charges
Hunter Biden currently faces firearm-related charges stemming from an incident dating back to Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president in the Obama administration.
Facing Three Charges
A Delaware grand jury recently issued an indictment containing three charges related to Hunter Biden’s purchase of a .38 caliber Colt Cobra revolver.
Lying on a Federal Application
These charges are primarily connected to false statements made on a federal application completed by Hunter in October 2018 in order to purchase the firearm.
Claims He Was Battling a Crack Addiction
Hunter claimed he was not using drugs at the time of the handgun purchase, contradicting his later admission in his memoir that he was battling an addiction to crack cocaine during that period.
The Prison Sentence Is Decades Long
Two of the counts against Hunter Biden carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison each, while the third carries a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment.
Much Harsher Than Plea Deal
It’s a big contrast to a previously discussed plea deal that would have placed Hunter in a diversion program, potentially expunging the gun-related charges upon successful completion.
There Were Problems With the Deal
The plea deal encountered complications when Delaware District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika raised objections to certain provisions, including immunity from future prosecutions and monitoring compliance.
Indictments Were Brought Into Play
These issues led to the plea deal being reconsidered, and when negotiations between Hunter Biden’s lawyers and prosecutors reached an impasse, Special Counsel David Weiss sought indictments against him.
