Biden Rules Out Pardoning Hunter in Gun Charges Case

With the Hunter Biden trial starting, a guilty verdict seems inevitable.

Hunter’s case more or less collapsed after the testimony of Hunter’s exes.

So, it was only natural for Biden to be asked again if he would pardon Hunter if he got a guilty verdict.

Not Happening

Biden has answered this question before, and the real reason the media is continuing to ask Biden about this is to get some empathy behind him for the election.

To that point, Biden sat down with ABC’s “World News Tonight” on Thursday after his disastrous appearance at the D-Day memorial event.

ABC’s David Muir asked Biden, “As we sit here in Normandy, your son Hunter is on trial. I know that you cannot speak about an ongoing federal prosecution, but let me ask you, will you accept the jury’s outcome no matter what it is?”

Biden said he would respect the jury verdict, and when asked if he has ruled out pardoning Hunter Biden, he also said, “Yes.”

Realistically, there will be no need for a pardon even if Hunter is found guilty.

Let’s not forget, even though Hunter has been in trouble before, he has never faced charges because I am sure Joe made some phone calls behind the scenes to make sure that never happened.

This all goes back to 1988 when Hunter was arrested on drug charges in Stone Harbor, NJ, but an intervention took place and his record was wiped clean.

So, as a first-time offender for what is realistically a very low-level charge, I would be surprised if anything worse than probation or a short home arrest was ordered.

And let’s not forget, the judge will take the prosecution’s recommendation for a sentence into consideration, and you better believe that if Hunter loses this case, Merrick Garland is going to be on the phone with David Weiss telling him to recommend the minimal sentence.
