The president’s son was indicted after a plea agreement on tax and gun charges fell apart in July and as House Republicans investigate his finances.
Federal prosecutors have indicted Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, on gun charges, court documents show.
Biden was indicted Thursday in federal court in Delaware on three counts tied to possession of a gun while using narcotics.
Two counts accuse Biden of having completed a form indicating he was not using illegal drugs when he bought a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018. The third count alleges he possessed a firearm while using a narcotic. The indictment says Biden certified on a federally mandated form “that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance, when in fact, as he knew, that statement was false and fictitious.”

WNU Editor: I for one would not be surprised if these charges are dismissed before trial. Robert Barnes legal and political analysis is probably correct (see tweet below).
Goal here is to tie up Hunter such that he can’t be subpoenaed to testify in any impeachment effort, and can claim the 5th. It’s not a real effort to punish. https://t.co/wranfhrVkz
