Joe Biden's Son Hunter Biden Found Guilty Of Gun Crimes, Faces Up To 25 Years In Jail

In a landmark decision, Hunter Biden, the son of sitting US President Joe Biden, has been found guilty on three felony counts related to illegal gun possession. The federal court in Wilmington delivered the verdict on Tuesday, marking the first time a child of a current US president has been convicted of a crime. Hunter Biden faced charges of lying about his drug use when purchasing a firearm and illegally possessing the weapon. The charges stemmed from a 2018 incident in which Biden, then struggling with drug addiction, bought a Colt Cobra .38-calibre revolver. When completing the mandatory background check form, Biden falsely stated that he was not using illegal drugs, a misrepresentation that led to his conviction. #HunterBiden #GunCrimes #GuiltyVerdict #LegalNews #BidenFamily #CourtCase #GunControl #JusticeSystem #USPolitics #BreakingNews #CrimeAndPunishment #FederalCourt #JudicialProcess #BidenAdministration #PoliticalImpact ~PR.152~ED.155~

‘Harris May Not…’: Biden Remains Doubtful of Harris’ Victory Even After Exiting the Race| Watch Here

President Biden announced his withdrawal from the 2024 race, endorsing Vice President Harris as the Democratic nominee. This decision was reportedly influenced by concerns about Harris' ability to defeat Trump. Harris' tenure as VP has been marked by high staff turnover and perceived reluctance to take on risky tasks. While some prominent Democrats have backed Harris, others have withheld endorsement. The coming weeks are crucial for Harris to unite the party and establish herself as a strong candidate against Trump. #Biden #KamalaHarris #VPHarris #PresidentHarris #Biden2024 #Trump2024 #BidenHarris #USElections2024 #Oneindia #Oneindianews ~HT.178~PR.320~ED.102~GR.125~
