Hunter Biden’s gun case may go to trial in June


WASHINGTON — Hunter Biden could go on trial in Delaware on federal firearms charges in June, amid his father’s reelection campaign.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika set the tentative date in a brief phone hearing Wednesday, but is still considering several defense motions to throw out the case, which could derail any potential case against the president’s son.

The trial is scheduled to begin June 3 and could last up to nine days. A separate trial on tax charges against him in California is now tentatively scheduled to begin later that month.

President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden admitted lying about his drug use in October 2018 to buy a gun he kept for about 11 days. He admitted to having a crack cocaine addiction during this period, but his lawyers said he had not broken the law and it would not be the first time another non-violent offender has been charged.

He was indicted in July 2023 after a plea deal that would have resolved the case without the semblance of a trial that exploded with a barrage of questions from a judge who was supposed to approve the case.

Hunter Biden’s lawyers have since sought to dismiss the case, arguing that prosecutors bowed to political pressure after the deal was publicly criticized as “a sweetheart deal” by Republicans, including former President Donald Trump.

They also argue that the immunity provisions in the original agreement, which defense attorney Abbe Lowell argued with the judge on Wednesday, still apply.

Noreika said he hasn’t decided exactly how he will handle his four pending motions to dismiss the case, but he wants to make sure there will be time in his calendar for any hearings.

Prosecutors said there was no evidence the case was politically motivated, the evidence against him was “overwhelming” and the immunity deal was blown up along with the rest of the plea deal.

Hunter Biden also pleaded not guilty to separate tax charges in Los Angeles alleging a four-year scheme to avoid paying $1.4 million in taxes while living a lavish lifestyle.
