(Patriot.Buzz) – In a groundbreaking turn of events due to recently unveiled evidence boosting their case, federal prosecutors urged a judge to reject Hunter Biden’s motion to dismiss gun charges against him.
Investigators discovered cocaine residue on the pouch Hunter used for storing his gun, a finding that prosecutors argue demonstrates the overwhelming strength of the evidence against Joe Biden’s son.
Prosecutors pointed to Hunter’s own admissions in his 2021 memoir regarding his drug use, alongside the discovery of a white powdery substance on the brown leather pouch holding the gun.
The substance was identified as cocaine by an FBI chemist. “To be clear, investigators literally found drugs on the pouch where the defendant had kept his gun,” the prosecutors stated.
Hunter has pleaded not guilty to charges that accuse him of falsifying information about his drug use on a gun purchase form in October 2018. During this time, he admits to struggling with crack cocaine addiction, but his legal team contends that no laws were broken. Hunter has since claimed to have ceased using drugs and made efforts to turn his life around.
The possibility of a plea deal last year dissolved, leading to the current legal proceedings unfolding as Joe gears up for re-election. The breakdown occurred when a judge tasked with approving the plea deal raised several questions about its terms.
Under the initial agreement, Hunter would have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor tax charges and avoided prosecution on gun charges as long as he maintained a clean record for two years.
Hunter’s lawyers argued to get the gun case dismissed, alleging he was “selectively charged” for political reasons. They claim that David Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for Delaware and Special Counsel appointed by former President Donald Trump, succumbed to political pressure in pursuing more severe charges.
However, prosecutors have refuted these allegations, asserting that the charges are the consequence of Hunter’s actions and were brought despite political interference, not because of it.
Simultaneously, congressional Republicans have opened an impeachment inquiry into Joe for his alleged involvement in Hunter’s business dealing with foreign agents, with the ethics surrounding the Biden family’s international business ventures coming under scrutiny.
