Administration’s Reaction to Inquiries Regarding Potential Presidential Pardon for Hunter Biden

It is now being reported that President Joe Biden is refusing to pardon his son, Hunter, who was hit with an indictment on Thursday accusing him of nine tax charges, including three felony charges. If found guilty on all counts, Hunter could be looking at a maximum sentence of 17 years behind bars. The White House was asked to comment on Hunter’s charges and whether the president is considering a pardon for his son. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded by saying that the president supports his son and that he would not be pardoning Hunter.

Amidst these allegations of tax evasion, Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, criticized the charges as politically motivated. Lowell has also spoken out against the accusations, claiming that if Hunter’s last name wasn’t Biden, these charges would not have been brought against him.

In addition to the tax charges against Hunter Biden, there are existing allegations that the president has used his family’s dealings for profit. Recent polls have shown that the majority of Americans believe that President Biden acted improperly in handling his son’s international business affairs, with evidence suggesting his involvement in Hunter’s business dealings. The House Oversight Committee has even released this evidence.

The latest indictment against Hunter Biden was brought forward by special counsel David Weiss, accusing him of deliberately failing to pay taxes between 2016 and 2019. The indictment also alleges he used millions of dollars to fund a luxurious lifestyle, rather than fulfill his fiscal duties. These allegations include three counts of failure to pay taxes and three counts of failing to file tax returns for the years 2017 and 2018.

Some of Hunter Biden’s legal woes also extend to gun-related charges. Earlier this year, he faced several felony charges in relation to allegations of making false statements to a gun dealer and possessing a firearm while using drugs. A plea deal that would have seen him enter a diversion agreement to avoid a criminal trial fell apart, with prosecutors stating that its terms were not in effect. Democrats have expressed concerns that these charges could be politically damaging for President Biden.

In light of these charges faced by President Biden’s son, the world watches as both Hunter and Joe Biden attempt to navigate through these legal and political challenges.
