Hunter Biden GUILTY on All Three Counts in Gun Trial: He’s Probably Going to Prison (UPDATED with Statement)


Hunter Biden has been found guilty on all three counts in his gun trial.

The son of President Joe Biden will likely go to prison when he’s sentenced. President Biden has already said he will not pardon him or commute his sentence.

“I am more grateful today for the love and support I experienced this last week from Melissa, my family, my friends, and my community than I am disappointed by the outcome,” Hunter Biden wrote in a statement following his guilty verdict. “Recovery is possible by the grace of God, and I am blessed to experience that gift one day at a time.”

Biden was found guilty of making a false statement in connection with the sale of a firearm, a false statement in a firearms transaction, and possessing a firearm while being a drug user or drug addict.

He still has another trial to face in Los Angeles this September where he’s charged in federal court with failing to pay taxes on more than $1.4 million in income over several years.

Noted: unlike Donald Trump — convicted on 34 counts — Hunter Biden has not attacked his judge or prosecutors.
