Hunter Biden found guilty of federal gun charges in landmark case

He was also charged with illegal possession of the firearm, which he had held for just 11 days in October of that year.

The president’s son, who has written tirelessly about his addiction, said that at the time he bought the gun, he did not consider himself an addict.

Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison, although prison time as a first-time offender is unlikely.

He has long been a target of far-right Republicans, and Trump’s allies have extensively investigated him in Congress over allegations of corruption and influence peddling. No charges were ever filed.

Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China and Ukraine also provided the basis for Republican lawmakers’ attempts to initiate impeachment proceedings against his father. These efforts also came to nothing.

The White House has said there will be no presidential pardon for Hunter Biden.
