Hunter Biden Indicted on False Statement, Gun Charges: A Political Shockwave in 2024



Clear Facts:

  • Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, has been indicted for allegedly making false statements during a gun purchase and illegal possession of a handgun, complicating the political landscape for the 2024 presidential campaign.
  • This indictment follows the breakdown of a plea deal in July. The current political climate is also charged with Donald Trump, a leading GOP candidate, facing four separate indictments from the Justice Department.
  • Amidst these developments, Republicans are trying to connect President Biden to his son’s legal issues, while Hunter’s legal team accuses them of injecting partisan politics into the investigative process.

President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was indicted on Thursday over accusations of false statements and illegal possession of a handgun. This development promises to add fuel to an already explosive 2024 presidential campaign.

This felony indictment follows the unsuccessful negotiation of a plea deal back in July, in which Hunter Biden, through his legal team, would have accepted guilt for two misdemeanor tax violations. Furthermore, he would have acknowledged illegal possession of a gun without pleading guilty to the related felony.

Sources privy to the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity, hinted at another potential indictment on tax charges against Hunter Biden, although no confirmed timeline is available.

The political spectrum has been buzzing, with Donald Trump, the GOP’s current top contender, grappling with four separate indictments himself. Interestingly, two of these are from the same Justice Department that has charged Hunter. This situation could see both Biden and Trump facing trials as the 2024 presidential election draws closer.

Polls have revealed that Trump’s grip on the Republican nomination has tightened even amidst indictments in New York, Florida, D.C., and Georgia. Leveraging this momentum, leading Republicans have worked to connect President Biden with Hunter’s legal dilemmas, alleging corruption and obstruction from the Biden administration. Notably, this stance has become a cornerstone of the recently initiated impeachment inquiry against President Biden.

In response to Thursday’s events, the White House directed inquiries to the Justice Department and Hunter Biden’s attorneys. Abbe Lowell, representing Hunter Biden, has criticized the indictment as yielding to undue political pressure from the Republican side. Lowell argued, “Hunter Biden possessing an unloaded gun for 11 days was not a threat to public safety, but a prosecutor… bending to political pressure, presents a grave threat to our system of justice.”

Details from the indictment indicate Hunter Biden allegedly made two false declarations on a gun purchase form in October 2018. The indictment points out his denial of drug addiction or use was, to his knowledge, “false and fictitious.”

Prosecutors might find this case tough to win, given disagreements and statements made by federal agents and officials involved in the case, coupled with the interviews they’ve already given to congressional committees.

Biden’s attorney, Lowell, issued a strongly-worded letter to Republican Reps. James Comer, Jim Jordan, and Jason Smith, accusing them of politically manipulating the investigative process, “Mr. Biden was and will be charged for conduct no one else would be charged for because, as the President’s son, he has been subject to your relentless efforts to inject partisan Republican politics into the process.”


After the breakdown of Hunter’s plea deal in July, which would have essentially seen him serve probation instead of jail time under certain conditions, U.S. Attorney David Weiss was granted special counsel status. This enables him to pursue charges outside Delaware, a power he would not ordinarily possess as U.S. attorney.

The case has taken numerous turns, including controversies with IRS agents turned whistleblowers, alleging that Weiss was intentionally delaying the investigation. This saga led to calls for a special counsel, which were initially resisted by Attorney General Merrick Garland, but later accepted when the plea deal disintegrated.

Remarkably, false declarations on government forms for firearm purchase make up a small fraction of overall firearm-related charges. Recent data from Syracuse University’s TRAC database reveals only 3% of unlawful possession charges relate to false statements during a firearm acquisition, in a six-month span.

Nevertheless, the political ramifications of this indictment are far-reaching, with congressional Republicans continuing to probe the extent of the Justice Department’s pursuit of the case. Rep. James Comer vocalized skepticism, suggesting that the current charges might be the “one crime you can’t tie back to Joe Biden.”

The coming months promise intense scrutiny and political maneuvering, with both sides of the aisle bracing for what the 2024 campaign will bring.

    Does Biden get special treatment. Absolutely. Each and every action by prosecution is measured by pressures from Daddy Biden and Republican pressures. Biden should be worried. Democrats cannot be seen as preferred in treatment.

    The Democrats suggest that the Republicans are injecting politics into a criminal investigation! That would be a terribly irresponsible thing to do. Any group doing that should be fined, reprimanded and those doing it jailed!
