The gun charge against Hunter Biden seems to be coming to a tipping point. President Biden talked for the first time about possible charges against son. The president said he is “confident” in Son Hunter on taxes and guns.
- The Washington Post reports that federal agents have enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes and making a false statement about a firearm purchase.
- On Monday, Hannity played a voicemail left by Joe Biden for his son. Hunter Biden lied on a gun purchase application in 2018 when he stated he was not using or addicted to drugs.
- Federal charges believe there is sufficient evidence to charge Hunter in the gun case and on tax charges.
The President defends son Hunter Biden in the face of Potential Criminal Gun Charges.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, President Biden talked about the possibility that his son Hunter could face criminal charges because he lied on a gun application.
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked the president about a recent report in the Washington Post that said federal agents think they have enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax evasion and making a false statement about a firearm purchase.
But when he defended his son in the gun case, Mr. Biden seemed to go against his policy of remaining neutral.
“This thing about a gun – I didn’t know anything about it. But turns out that when he made an application to purchase a gun, what happened was he – I guess you get asked – I don’t guess, you get asked a question, are you on drugs, or do use drugs?’ He said no. And he wrote about saying no in his book,” Mr. Biden said.
The president said that his son had written about his struggles with addiction in his book “Beautiful Things,” and that he had also admitted to lying when he applied for a firearm permit.
Voicemail-Gun Application dates Coincide
On Monday, Fox News host Sean Hannity played a voicemail left for Hunter Biden by his father on his show. He told viewers that “that voicemail came at the same time Hunter lied on a gun application to buy a handgun.”
In the message, Biden tells his son how much he loves and supports him.
“It’s Dad. I called to tell you I love you. I love you more than anything else in the world, pal. You must seek help “Biden is heard saying. “I know you don’t know what to do. I don’t either.”
Attorney General Merrick Garland has given United States Attorney for the District of Delaware David C. Weiss the power to decide if Hunter Biden should be charged with a crime.
The evidence suffices
Joe Biden made his first comments about a controversial gun case brought against son. He said he was proud of his son for dealing with his drug problems.
Hunter Biden is facing criminal charges because he allegedly lied on an application to buy a firearm in 2018 that asked him to say he did not use drugs or have a drug addiction.
So far, the White House has not taken a side in Hunter’s investigation, which seems to be coming to an end.
Federal officials think there is enough evidence to charge him in both the gun case and the tax case, according to the Washington Post.
According to reports, the case was assembled by agents, and now they have to wait for Attorney David Weiss, a Donald Trump appointee, to decide which charges should be brought.
Merrick Garland, who is the Attorney General, has said nothing about the case.
