Hunter Biden Enters Plea In Federal Case

Hunter Biden has entered a plea in the federal gun case against him.

Following the collapse of an earlier deal made between him and prosecutors, Biden is now pleading not guilty to the charges against him.

Prosecutors allege that Hunter illegally possessed a firearm when he failed to disclose his drug use on a firearm application—something that could potentially saddle him with 25 years behind bars.

Here’s what everyone is saying about the ongoing case against Hunter Biden:

The Associated Press presented more details:

President Joe Biden’s son has been charged with lying about his drug use in October 2018 on a form to buy a gun that he kept for about 11 days.

He could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted. When asked by Magistrate Judge Christopher Burke if he understood the charges against him, he said, “Yes, Your Honor.”

Axios also provided this related update: “Hunter Biden’s lawyer says he may challenge the constitutionality of the gun provisions and file a motion to dismiss the case against his client.”

Fox News reports:

Magistrate Judge Christopher Burke presided over the hearing and laid out the conditions for Hunter Biden’s release, which require the president’s son to seek employment and communicate all international travel plans.

Biden also is prohibited from possessing a firearm and using alcohol and drugs, and he is required to get drug tested randomly and participate in a substance abuse counseling program.
