Biden Won’t Pardon Son Hunter Amid Tax And Firearms Charges

In the midst of ongoing legal troubles for Hunter Biden, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made it clear on Thursday that President Joe Biden has no intention of pardoning his son. Hunter Biden is currently facing charges related to tax evasion and firearms offenses, with a plea agreement recently rejected by a US federal judge.

The plea deal, which would have involved two years of probation and resolution of the federal firearms offense, was turned down by the judge on Wednesday. Jean-Pierre responded with a resolute “No” when asked if there was a possibility of a pardon for Hunter.

The case revolves around Hunter Biden’s failure to pay over a million dollars in federal taxes for the years 2017 and 2018. He reportedly pleaded guilty to two tax misdemeanors during the recent court hearing. However, the judge raised concerns about the constitutionality of the plea agreement, while prosecutors and the defense disagreed over whether the gun charges were part of the deal.

As the legal battle unfolds, the Justice Department indicated that any plea deal would not cover other potential crimes currently under investigation, including potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The situation has raised questions about how these charges could potentially impact Joe Biden’s presidency, leading to speculation on whether the collapse of the plea deal could escalate into further controversies and even discussions of impeachment. With ongoing investigations and mounting public interest, the situation remains highly scrutinized and politically sensitive.

The Biden family’s legal troubles have drawn significant attention and will undoubtedly be closely monitored in the coming days. While President Biden has categorically ruled out a pardon for his son, the unfolding events could have far-reaching implications for the Biden administration and its standing in the eyes of the American public.
