In a recent press conference, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shut down any hopes of President Joe Biden pardoning his son, Hunter Biden. This news comes as Hunter’s legal troubles continue to mount. Jean-Pierre made it clear that Hunter’s prosecution is a personal matter, and she would not comment on a federal judge’s rejection of a lenient plea bargain that would have protected Hunter from future prosecution.

While the press secretary insists that Joe Biden and the first lady still love their son, it’s hard to ignore the growing evidence linking Hunter’s shady business dealings to his father. Despite the denials of any knowledge, it seems inevitable that the president will be implicated in his son’s misdeeds. As legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests, this could even lead to Joe Biden dropping out of the 2024 presidential race.

BREAKING: Judge Maryellen Noreika is not messing around as she is now threatening to have Hunter Biden arrested if he fails to comply with new conditions.
If Hunter consumes alcohol or drugs including marijuana, he will be arrested & be prosecuted for contempt of court.

Adding to Hunter’s woes, U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika has set strict release conditions for him, including abstaining from drugs and alcohol. If he were to violate these conditions, Hunter could face jail time. The release conditions outline various testing methods, such as urine testing and remote alcohol testing, to monitor his compliance. It is clear that the court is taking his situation seriously and expects him to cooperate fully.
Overall, the news of President Biden not pardoning his son sends a message that the administration is not above the law. It remains to be seen how Hunter’s legal battles will unfold, but the consequences of his actions may have far-reaching implications for the Biden family and their political future.
