Juror: Hunter Biden’s Lifestyle, Politics Not Considered in Verdict

0:00

A juror in Hunter Biden’s gun trial revealed that neither the lifestyle of President Joe Biden’s son nor the politics were a factor in the guilty verdict.

“We didn’t use Jill. We didn’t use President Biden,” the juror explained, adding that Joe Biden’s “name was only brought up once” over the course of the trial.

“When he said he did not want that gun back and that gun sat in evidence for almost five years, I think that’s what may have been what led to his downfall,” the juror said, adding that if Hunter “had taken possession of that gun,” there probably wouldn’t have been a trial.

Judge Maryellen Noreika, who oversaw Hunter’s gun trial, recently gave a one-year sentence to a defendant in a similar case.

Hunter is currently facing up to 25 years in prison and roughly $750,000 in fines, according to court documents.

Over the course of the trial, ten witnesses were brought forth by the prosecution, while one witness, Naomi Biden Neal, was brought forth by the defense.

A “sweetheart” plea deal unraveled in July 2023 after Judge Noreika had raised concerns regarding the terms of the plea agreement.

As Truth Voices reported:

THE ORIGINIAL “SWEETHEART” PLEA DEAL GAVE HUNTER BIDEN THE OPTION TO PLEAD GUILTY TO NOT PAYING TAXES ON MORE THAN $1.5 MILLION IN INCOME IN 2017 AND 2018, RECEIVING PROBATION RATHER THAN JAIL TIME. IN ADDITION, SPECIAL COUNSEL DAVID WEISS DEVISED A SEPARATE DIVERSION AGREEMENT THAT GAVE HUNTER IMMUNITY FROM POTENTIAL FUTURE CHARGES, INCLUDING A PROVISION TO POTENTIALLY WIPE A FELONY GUN VIOLATION FROM HIS RECORD.

After the jury’s guilty verdict, the president stated that he was “so proud” of Hunter, pointing out that “many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone” they love and care about “come out the other side.”
