Reports show former President Trump has commented on the news of Hunter Biden’s criminal prosecution.
Republican frontrunner Donald Trump said there were only criminal proceedings against Hunter Biden’s gun charges. There were no charges linking him to President Joe Biden, his father.
In a post on Truth Social, the former president said that the gun charge is the only felony that Hunter Biden perpetrated that does not connect Crooked Joe Biden.
Reports show that the president’s son has been charged with two felonies:
Lying on a federal weapons background check form and having a handgun while under the influence of drugs.
A federal grand jury in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware returned the indictment on Thursday.
Previously, Hunter Biden had been charged with two tax-related misdemeanors.
After a plea bargain between Biden and the state collapsed in court in July, federal prosecutors decided not to press tax charges.
Critics have pointed to the president’s son’s vast international business operations, many of which relied on the president’s family name.
A report shows that in a 2017 WhatsApp communication, Hunter Biden threatened a Chinese business contact via text by threatening to bring his father, Joe, into the situation. He told him he would regret not following his order.
Hunter Biden mentioned a pending agreement and said that he was sitting next to his father, and they wanted to understand why it had not been honored.
If Hunter Biden is found guilty on all firearms counts, he faces a maximum of 25 years in jail and a $750,000 fine.
Meanwhile, the first hearing on possible impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden will be held by House Republicans next week.
A report confirmed that the hearing was set for September 28 and that lawmakers would review the evidence and provide an update on the investigation.
A representative for the House Oversight Committee stated that the hearing will concentrate on legal and Constitutional problems regarding the President’s role in the abuse and corruption of public office.
Since Biden is suspected of interfering in his son’s international business dealings, an inquiry has been launched under Republican House committee chairs James Comer of Kentucky, Jim Jordan of Ohio, and Jason Smith of Missouri on the Ways and Means Committee.
