Biden Will Not Commute Hunter Biden Sentence

The issue of Joe Biden pardoning Hunter has already been settled, as Biden has stated several times that he would not pardon his son.

With Hunter having been found guilty, the next logical question is if Biden would commute the sentence.

This week, the White House confirmed that it would not commute the sentence either, so Hunter will have to serve whatever sentence comes down in the case.

Deal With It

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked on Monday to clarify Biden’s position on this.

RealClearPolitics reporter Philip Wegmann asked KJP, “President Biden has ruled out any type of pardon or commutation or reduced sentence for his son, Hunter Biden?”

She responded, “Yes, he has.”

Biden confirmed again last Thursday that no pardon would be given.

But let’s be realistic about this… Hunter Biden will not be given anything worse than house arrest here, and even that is unlikely.

After the guilty verdict came down, prosecutors already hinted that they would not be looking to for an extreme sentence, saying that even though Hunter was found guilty, they would not expect his sentence to be anything more than anyone else would receive.

Translation: Prosecutors are likely to recommend probation and nothing more.

Hutner is considered a first-time offender for a crime that is generally considered very low-level.

Hunter, however, is still on the hook for tax evasion, with his trial scheduled for September 5 in Los Angeles.

If the judge wanted to really stick it to Hunter, she could sentence him to 25 years, but again, don’t get your hopes up on this one, as I would imagine the pressure on the judge and the DOJ to offer leniency is considerable.

So, once again, the crack-addict son of the president who has been breaking the law since the 1980s will get off scot-free.
