A US federal court released a three-count indictment against the president's son, Hunter Biden, on September 14. Two of the charges are related to the fact that Hunter Biden lied about not using illegal drugs when completing a gun purchase form for a Colt Cobra revolver. The third charge relates to the actual possession of a weapon while using narcotics. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on the charges, according to court documents.
According to the state prosecutors’ line of inquiry, the crimes were committed by the US president’s son in October 2018. In response, the Biden camp argued that the indictment was politically motivated and “unconstitutional.”The indictment came just weeks after an earlier plea agreement on tax and gun charges tied to Hunter fell apart in July after the presiding judge raised concerns about the terms of the deal.After news of Hunter Biden suing the IRS broke, the Internet was swift to react, marvelling at the first son suing “his father’s government.”© Photo : kyledcheney/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.© Photo : lavern_spicer/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.© Photo : JosephL25303475/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.© Photo : jacobmathews/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.Others slammed a “guilty” Hunter Biden for so quickly “going on the offensive.”© Photo : Brent59217239/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.© Photo : RichardLLocke1/XScreenshot of X post.Screenshot of X post.
