The question of whether President Biden would potentially pardon his son, Hunter Biden, has finally come to light. Here’s what President Biden said.
The administration’s position became clearer on Friday when White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre firmly stated that President Biden would not pardon his son, even if he were to be convicted on gun charges.
This statement comes in response to Hunter Biden’s indictment on three felony gun charges, which allege that he illegally purchased a firearm while under the influence of drugs.
Maximum Sentence of Ten Years
These charges could result in a maximum sentence of ten years if Hunter is convicted.
This Has Happened Before
This is not the first time the question of a potential pardon for Hunter Biden has arisen.
The issue was initially addressed in July when similar queries were posed to the White House press secretary.
However, Jean-Pierre said, “I’ve answered this question before. It was asked of me not too long ago, a couple of weeks ago, and I was very clear, and I said no.”
Hunter Biden’s indictment on the gun charges has generated significant public attention and debate.
Hunter Denied the Charges
His legal team has vigorously denied the charges and raised questions about their constitutionality.
Hunter’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, argued, “It is a unique and unjustified charge. Hunter owned an unloaded gun for 11 days.
There has never been a charge like this that has been brought in the United States.”
In addition to the federal investigations, Hunter Biden is also under scrutiny from a Republican-led House investigation into his previous business dealings.
Republicans have alleged that President Biden used his political influence to secure lucrative deals for his son.
Impeachment Inquiry Against the President
These allegations have been used by members of the House GOP to advocate for an impeachment inquiry against the President.
The Charges Will Be Dismissed…
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “That’s because he knows the charges will be dismissed.”
Example of a Good Parent
Another user added, “A good example of a good parent who doesn’t excuse and enable his child’s bad behavior but lets them suffer the consequences of their actions while still standing with them in love.”
The Ethical Thing to Do
A third user commented, “Because it’s the ethical thing to do. You don’t give favors to your family members.
DJT was doling out trademarks, special privileges, and all sorts of favors for himself, his daughter, and his sons! One of the most unethical presidents in history.”
He Will Pardon Him
A fourth user wrote, “Whatever, they’re not going after him and he won’t be truly charged with anything and he will pardon him.”
