Biden Reveals If He Will Pardon His Son Hunter


In his latest interview with ABC News’ David Muir, Biden revealed that he will not pardon his son Hunter.

Hunter Biden is currently under trial in a Delaware court after being charged with federal gun offenses.

When Muir asked Biden if he had ruled out pardoning his son Hunter, Biden replied, “Yes.”

Muir further asked if he would accept the trial results, to which Biden replied “Yes,” again.

Watch Biden’s complete response here:

Check out what NBC News reported:

President Joe Biden told ABC News in an interview Thursday that he will accept whatever a jury decides in his son Hunter Biden’s criminal trial and that he will not use his presidential power to pardon him if he’s convicted.

Biden made his brief statements on his son’s historic trial in an interview with ABC News anchor David Muir in Normandy, where Biden and other dignitaries were taking part in a service to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-Day, a turning point for the Allied forces in World War II.

Asked if he would rule out a pardon for his son, who’s facing three federal gun-related charges in court in Delaware, Biden answered simply, “Yes.” Asked if he would accept the outcome of the jury trial, a first for an offspring of a sitting president, he again replied, “Yes.”

The White House had previously said Biden would not use his pardon power on Hunter Biden, who is also facing a trial on federal tax charges in September. Presidents have the power to grant pardons in federal cases, but not state cases. “I’ve been very clear; the president is not going to pardon his son,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in December.

Many users on X don’t believe Biden:

Per Fox News:

President Biden said on Thursday he will not pardon his son Hunter and will accept the verdict in the ongoing felony gun trial.

In an interview with ABC News’ David Muir in Normandy, France, Biden was asked whether he would accept the results of the federal trial underway in Delaware, which he replied “yes.”

And when asked whether he would rule out pardoning Hunter if convicted, Biden also answered “yes.”
