Former Advisor Calls on Trump to Pardon Hunter Biden

One of President Donald Trump’s former senior advisors is calling on the 45th POTUS to make a pledge to pardon Hunter Biden if re-elected in November.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s son is probably baffled to hear that a pardon could come from Trump.

The calls come after President Biden recently asserted, before his son’s conviction, that he would not pardon Hunter.

David Urban, a top advisor to Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, said the shock move would unify the country.

In addition, it would also take Democrats by surprise.

Biden was found guilty this week on felony gun charges for lying about his drug addiction.

He faces years in prison and large fines.

Democrats have cited the verdict to deflect accusations that justice has been weaponized against Trump, who was convicted in New York for the so-called “hush money” case.

While many are hoping Trump will seek revenge if he returns to power, Urban said he should choose mercy instead.

Urban said that pardoning Hunter Biden would make Trump look “magnanimous” and “really flip the tables on the Democrats.”

“Listen, what I’d like to see happen is I’d like to see President Trump come out with a statement saying, ‘Look, if Hunter Biden commits to a program of sobriety, inpatient or maybe outpatient, shows up, keeps his sobriety, I’ll pardon him,’” Urban told CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.”

The White House has given mixed signals about a pardon.

Initially, Joe Biden said he would not pardon his son.

However, the White House has changed its tune following the verdict and opened the door to a commuted, or reduced, sentence.

“I haven’t spoken to the president about this since the verdict came out, and as we all know, the sentencing hasn’t even been scheduled yet,” Biden’s press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday.

Biden was more definitive while traveling in Italy last Thursday.

He said he would not pardon his son or reduce the sentence.

“I’m extremely proud of my son, Hunter,” Biden said.

“He has overcome an addiction.

“He’s one of the brightest, most decent men I know.

“And I am satisfied that I’m not gonna do anything.

“I said I abide by the jury decision.

“I will do that. And I will not pardon him.”

By declining to pardon his son, Biden is trying to look “magnanimous” himself.

Of course, only time will tell if Biden is telling the truth.

Once the election is out of the way, whether he loses or not, Biden will be less interested in how voters feel about him pardoning his son.

However, with Hunter Biden’s trial on tax charges looming in September, it is more likely that he would wait for that to play out and take action on all the charges at once.

There’s no word on whether Biden would extend a pardon to Trump.

But if Biden won’t pardon his son, it’s hard to imagine him showing mercy to a bitter rival.

It would certainly help unify the country – but Biden has taken a more divisive path than he promised voters in 2020.
