Hunter Biden’s guilty verdict upends a core Trump message​

By Jonathan Allen, Allan Smith and Katherine Doyle​


Former President Donald Trump’s argument about the “weaponization” of the justice system just ran smack into a Delaware jury’s conviction of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

The result, according to some Republicans, is a major blow to one of Trump’s favorite talking points — and a boost to Biden’s case that he respects the rule of law.


“Hunter Biden’s conviction definitely weakens the argument,” said Dan Eberhart, a major Republican donor who backs Trump and thinks he should be focused on the economy rather than court cases. “To me, the justice system is working.”

The younger Biden, 54, was found guilty Tuesday on three counts related to his illegal purchase of a handgun when he was using narcotics. The elder Biden was a major proponent of the so-called Brady Bill, which made it a crime for addicts to buy guns, and it was a special prosecutor working under his Justice Department who prosecuted his son.

Last month, a New York jury convicted Trump on 34 counts related to falsifying business records to cover up hush money payments to a pδrn film actor. He faces charges in federal court over his retention of classified documents. And in separate cases in Georgia and at the federal level, he has been indicted on charges related to his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

He has routinely accused Biden — without evidence — of directing a multi-jurisdictional legal campaign to take him off the political battlefield through criminal trials. But some Republicans say it will be hard to convince voters that Biden has turned the justice system into a weapon when his own son has now been struck.


That dynamic appeared to create a confusing complication for Republicans, who splintered in their responses to the Hunter Biden verdict.

Kash Patel, a former Defense Department official and a national security adviser to Trump, called it “a rare example of constitutional justice.” But Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt called Tuesday’s outcome “nothing more than a distraction” from what she said are the “real crimes” committed by Biden and his family.

And Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida effectively yawned, posting on X: “The Hunter Biden gun conviction is kinda dumb tbh.”

Every one of their talking points is a lie.

This is their strategy, undermining trust in institutions so they can win elections and take over or dismantle institutions.

It upends nothing. People are not stupid. Hunter got a sweetheart plea deal and wouldn't have had any charges. They felt the country waking up and turning on them for going after Trump so they resurrected the gun charge, the only charge not associated directly with Biden. Not only is it still a two tiered justice system, it's even more corrupt than ever. I'm glad everyone is calling them out and everyone has the same message. And they won't even set a sentencing date for hunter but they think it will be 3 or 4 months down the line. Why was Trump's sentencing date announced immediately after the verdict? Why did he have to post 175 million bond in the other case like he's a mass murderer? To interfere with the election and to ultimately try to put him in jail. We see through the bµllsh!t and gas lighting.

So you are lol suggesting we don’t have two tiered justice in the US?

Be clear the only reason they went after THIS president is because our elite don’t like him. Wake me when any other US president is charged with international war crimes for Iraq, Afghanistan, or funding a genocide in Gaza. Just a minute fraction of the crimes these people have and will continue to get away with.

I won’t hold my breath waiting: don’t be a coward, downvote and run! Prove me wrong!

Of course there is no way in hell you can

Where are the charges against Trump for his foreign policy?…waiting…

Reasonable, thinking people of all classes see the lying, racist, criminal, charlatan that Trump is….

And yes our criminal justice system is often broken and unfair to black, brown, poor people…and?

Try again with your bizarre Trump boosterism.
