Biden Defers Comment on DOJ Independence in Hunter Case, Upholds Jury Decision

President Biden declined to express his opinion on whether the Justice Department acted independently of politics when prosecuting his son, Hunter Biden, for unlawfully buying a gun while struggling with a drug addiction. The president was asked about the potential influence of politics during a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Italy.

Mr. Biden stated that he would respect the jury’s decision and affirmed that he would not grant his son a pardon. He expressed pride in Hunter Biden for overcoming his addiction and described him as a bright and decent individual. 


Hunter Biden faced three felony convictions from a federal jury in Wilmington, Delaware. Special Counsel David Weiss, who was appointed as U.S. Attorney under President Trump, prosecuted him. Notably, Mr. Biden’s attorney general elevated Mr. Weiss to special counsel to handle the gun and tax charges against Hunter Biden.

The charges against Hunter Biden included lying on a federal firearms application about his use of “unlawful substances” and the illegal possession of a firearm as a drug addict. The president’s son purchased the gun at a Wilmington, Delaware gun store in 2018, and his sentencing is pending.
