Hunter Biden Federal Gun Trial: Jury Deliberations Begin

Jurors Begin Deliberations

Jurors have started deliberations in the federal gun trial of Hunter Biden. He is accused of owning a firearm while being a drug addict. The deliberations began late Monday afternoon and lasted for about an hour before being adjourned for the day.

Prosecution’s Argument

In their closing argument, prosecutors emphasized the importance of proving whether Hunter Biden was an unlawful drug user or addict when he purchased the firearm. They presented various pieces of evidence including witness testimonies, text messages, photographs, bank withdrawals, and Hunter Biden’s memoir to make their case.

Charges Against Hunter Biden

Two of the three charges against Hunter Biden relate to allegations of making false statements on a federal gun form regarding his drug use. The third charge is about unlawfully owning the gun and possessing it for a period before it was discarded by his romantic partner.

Defense Argument

Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty to the charges. His defense lawyer, Abbe Lowell, argued that the prosecution’s case was built on conjecture and suspicion. He highlighted gaps in the evidence and suggested that Hunter Biden did not consider himself an addict at the time of gun purchase.

Witness Testimonies

Witness testimonies played a crucial role in the trial. Testimonies from Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, ex-girlfriend, and other individuals close to him were presented. Hallie Biden, a key witness, testified about Hunter Biden’s drug use and their relationship.

Impact of Family Members

While family members of the Bidens attended the trial, the prosecution reminded the jury that their presence should not influence the case. President Biden’s wife and other family members were present in the courtroom during the trial.


The jury deliberations will continue on Tuesday as the case unfolds. Stay tuned for more updates on this high-profile trial.
