In a surprising turn of events, Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden, has recently been indicted by federal prosecutors in Delaware on gun charges. Court documents reveal that the charges are related to gun possession while using narcotics.
The indictment includes three counts against Hunter Biden. The first count is for a false statement in the purchase of a firearm. The second count is for a false statement regarding information required to be provided by a federal firearms licensee. And the third count is for possession of a firearm by an individual who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.
According to reports, Hunter Biden is accused of submitting a form in October 2018 stating that he was not using illegal drugs when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver. Additionally, he is alleged to have been in possession of a firearm while using narcotics.
This indictment comes after Hunter Biden’s previous plea deal on tax and gun charges fell apart earlier this year. As House Republicans continue to investigate his finances, these new charges against him only add to the scrutiny surrounding his activities.
The case against Hunter Biden is being overseen by Special Counsel David Weiss. It remains to be seen how the legal proceedings will unfold and what impact they will have on the Biden family and their political standing.
This latest development involving Hunter Biden serves as a reminder that even the most prominent individuals can find themselves entangled in legal troubles. As the case progresses, it will undoubtedly attract significant attention and scrutiny from both the media and the public.
