Biden says he won't reduce any Hunter Biden jail sentence

 June 14, 2024

A day after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer questions about whether President Joe Biden would commute any prison sentence his son Hunter received for a conviction on three gun felonies on Tuesday, Biden said he would not reduce his son's prison sentence.

Biden had already said he would not pardon Hunter if convicted. Commuting a sentence does not expunge the conviction from a person's record, but it does keep them out of jail.

"I'm extremely proud of my son, Hunter," President Biden said during Thursday's news conference. "He has overcome an addiction. He's one of the brightest, most decent men I know. And I am satisfied that I'm not going to do anything."

Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison on the convictions, but he is unlikely to get a sentence anywhere close to that long.

What about Jill?

No sentencing date has yet been set in the case, so Hunter Biden went home to Malibu, California with his wife and young son to await the next step in the process.

He claimed he was in recovery when he purchased the gun in 2018, but photos and emails from his laptop contradicted his story.

First Lady Jill Biden was present for much of the trial, but has now begun a five-state campaign trip.

She has not commented on the outcome of the trial, but is presumably on board with her husband's non-interference plan.

"The same age"

Friday, she campaigned in Green Bay, Wisconsin, downplaying her husband's age and pretending it doesn't have an impact on his ability to do the job.

“Joe and that other guy are essentially the same age," she tried to say.

Actually, there is a three-plus year age difference, and Biden seems magnitudes more diminished than Trump.

“Joe Biden is a healthy, wise 81-year-old ready and willing to work for you every day to make our future better,” she added.

Her delusions aside, the first couple just essentially hung their son out to dry on these charges. Whether it will help Joe at the ballot box remains to be seen.
