Joe Biden Claims Hunter Is a Victim of Weaponized Justice System

Democrat President Joe Biden has claimed his son’s conviction on federal gun charges is part of a politically motivated lawfare attack, according to a new report.

Biden reportedly believes that the case would never have even gone to trial if he wasn’t running for re-election in November.

A report from Politico states that Biden is claiming privately that Hunter is a victim of a weaponized justice system.

As Slay News first reported on Tuesday, a Delaware jury found Hunter Biden guilty of all three gun charges.

He now faces up to 25 years in prison and $750,000 in fines.

Last week, the president pledged that he would not pardon Hunter.

He has not, however, spoken about whether he would deliver a commutation.

The insider information was reportedly revealed to Politico by two people not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations regarding Hunter.

The president feels guilty over Hunter’s legal predicament, they told the outlet.

They also said President Biden believes he contributed to Hunter’s plight.

“If I weren’t running for reelection, he would have gotten the plea deal,” Biden told a confidant earlier this month, a person familiar with the conversation told Politico.

Hunter refused to accept a gun-related plea deal from the government in 2023.

The offer of the gun plea deal came after his “sweetheart” plea deal collapsed under judicial scrutiny.

The judge characterized it as “atypical” and “not straightforward.”

As Slay News reported at the time, prosecutors had secretly added a clause that would have given Hunter Biden blanket immunity for all crimes, including any future charges.

However, the deal collapsed when the judge scrutinized the deal and raised concerns about the immunity clause.

Legal experts suggest the government’s proposal was a show of favoritism towards the president’s son.

The “sweetheart” deal came with a special agreement to wipe a felony gun violation from his record.

The deal gave Hunter the option to plead guilty to not paying taxes on more than $1.5 million in income in 2017 and 2018.

Under the deal, he would have received probation rather than jail time.

Following the “sweetheart” plea deal debacle, the government offered Hunter a second plea deal related to gun charges.

However, he rejected the second, opting to go to trial in Delaware, leading to his conviction this week.

In turn, the government later indicted Hunter in 2023 with tax violations in California.

The tax trial is set for September 2024.
