Biden Refuses to Pardon Son Amid New US-Ukraine Security Deal

President Joe Biden assured the public Thursday that he would not pardon his son, Hunter Biden, after his conviction on felony gun charges. President Biden stood by his decision not to intervene in his son’s legal issues during a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. President Biden praised his son for overcoming addiction and expressed his confidence in the fairness of the trial.

The president’s announcement came amidst speculation about whether he would commute his son’s sentence, prompting questions from reporters. However, President Biden firmly stated that he would uphold the jury’s decision and not pardon his son. White House officials had previously confirmed that the president would not intervene in his son’s legal matters.

The press conference took place following the announcement of a new 10-year security agreement between the U.S. and Ukraine, a move seen as a step towards Ukraine’s potential NATO membership. Although Judge Maryellen Noreika has not set a sentencing date for Hunter Biden, President Biden made it clear that he does not intend to use his powers to help his son avoid jail time.

White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, declined to comment on whether the president would consider commuting Hunter Biden’s sentence, stating that she had not discussed the matter with President Biden. The president’s unwavering decision to not pardon or commute his son’s sentence reflects his commitment to respecting the legal process and upholding justice.

Throughout the press conference, President Biden remained resolute in his stance, emphasizing the importance of abiding by the court’s decision. Despite lingering questions, the president’s affirmation signifies his dedication to maintaining the integrity of the legal system and respecting the outcome of his son’s trial.
