Hunter Biden Enters Not Guilty Plea on Firearm Charges, Tests Negative for Drug Use

 October 4, 2023

On Tuesday, Hunter Biden entered a not-guilty plea to three firearms charges, as Breitbart News reported.

Prior to this, he had been subjected to random drug testing since his court hearing in July 2023, during which he did not test positive for any substances.

According to the reports of journalists present in the courtroom, Hunter Biden was allowed to leave the federal courthouse after being freed on various conditions by Judge Christopher Burke.

These terms appear to be the same as his plea deal that he agreed to in July, including that he does not own a firearm, consume alcohol, or ingest controlled narcotics.

The Evidence

CNN stated that authorities fingerprinted and took a photograph of Hunter Biden in the month of July, but the photo has allegedly been kept hidden in accordance with Justice Department procedure.

One count of making a false statement in connection with the purchase of a firearm, one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and one count of making a false statement in connection with information that is required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer are the charges that have been brought against the first son.

He faces to up to 25 years in jail and given a fine of up to $750,000.

When the "sweetheart" arrangement fell through in July due to judicial scrutiny, the Special Counsel David Weiss had previously offered Hunter Biden a plea deal.

The Deal

If Weiss does not offer Hunter Biden a plea deal now, as he did in July, then Hunter Biden could be tried in the future. Last month, Hunter's attorneys asserted that the accusations against their client could be dropped before to the trial.

“It’s a sharp turnaround from a plea deal that would have had Biden entering a diversion program on the matter and comes as prosecutors mull whether to file charges on the tax crimes also initially covered by the deal,” the Hill reported.

IRS whistleblowers allege that Weiss, who was chosen for his role as a federal prosecutor by two Democratic senators, investigated Hunter Biden for a period of five years while serving as a federal prosecutor but allowed the statute of limitations to run out on other cases.

During the arraignment, Biden's attorney, Abbe Lowell, stated that he intended to file a motion to dismiss the charges, challenging the constitutionality of a law that prohibits drug users from possessing firearms. According to the attorney, this provision violates the Second Amendment.

He stated that he will also seek dismissal of the charges, arguing that the initial plea agreement would have granted immunity for them.

The criminal case commences as Republican legislators accelerate their investigation of President Biden, having held their first impeachment hearing last week.
