Donald Trump Jr. reacted to Hunter Biden’s indictment in federal gun charges for allegedly lying about drug addiction.
“Now that Hunter Biden has been indicted how many mins till Biden’s corrupt DOJ drops another Trump indictment to change the narrative? It’s nice to see something happen, though this is likely the excuse DOJ will use to pretend they’re fair when they give him slap on the wrist!” he tweeted.
The son of President Joe Biden was indicted Thursday less than two months after a plea agreement fell apart over tax and gun charges.
According to the indictment, Hunter was accused of knowingly deceiving a firearms dealer when buying a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver on October 12, 2018. He is charged with falsely denying he was addicted to any narcotics while filling out a federal firearms form. He is charged with knowingly possessing the revolver despite the restrictions against drug addicts owning firearms.
At the time, Hunter acknowledged he was a drug addict. Currently, as it stands, Hunter could face jail time if convicted of the charges against him. The outcome could make or break his father’s re-election campaign for 2024. If convicted, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison — five years for the false statement to the dealer, 10 years for the false statement on the federal form and 10 years for possession of the firearm.
Earlier on Thursday, a judge ruled that Former President Donald Trump will not go to trial next month alongside two of his co-defendants in the Georgia election interference case. This came as a big blow to Georgia prosecutors who wanted to try 19 co-defendants together in the case.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee wrote: “The Fulton County Courthouse simply contains no courtroom adequately large enough to hold all 19 defendants, their multiple attorneys and support staff, the sheriff’s deputies, court personnel, and the State’s prosecutorial team.”
