Hunter Biden’s lawyers have asked the judge to dismiss the gun charges against Hunter. Prosecutors have asked the judge not to dismiss the charges citing a lab report that found there was cocaine residue found on the gun pouch that Hunter kept the gun in. When the younger Biden filled out the document for his gun permit he swore that he was not doing drugs, which is not surprising since he is a Biden. Bidens are allergic to the truth.
Hunter has been charged with three crimes concerning a violation in gun ownership including making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm, one count of making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer, and one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. If convicted on all three counts, Hunter is facing up to 25 years in prison.
Special Counsel David Weiss, says that FBI agents found a white substance on the gun case and sent it to a lab for testing and concluded it was cocaine residue:
“Eleven days later, on October 23, 2018, the defendant’s then-girlfriend discovered the defendant’s gun in his open, unlocked vehicle (that had its windows down) inside his brown leather pouch along with a box of ammunition and speed loader. She discarded these items in a trash can behind a grocery store in Wilmington, Delaware. The defendant’s gun, speed loader, 23 rounds of ammunition, and brown leather pouch were found by an elderly man who routinely collected recyclables from trash cans in the area. The police later obtained the gun case from the defendant and obtained the defendant’s gun, the ammunition contained in the ammo box, speed loader, and brown leather pouch from the older man. These items were placed in an evidence vault by state authorities and no charges were brought at that time.”
“In 2023, FBI investigators pulled sealed evidence from the state police vault to take photographs of the defendant’s firearm. After opening the evidence, FBI investigators observed a white powdery substance on the defendant’s brown leather pouch that had held the defendant’s firearm in October 2018. Based on their training and experience, investigators believed that this substance was likely cocaine and that this evidence would corroborate the messages that investigators had obtained which showed the defendant buying and using drugs in October 2018. An FBI chemist subsequently analyzed the residue and determined that it was cocaine. To be clear, investigators literally found drugs on the pouch where the defendant had kept his gun.”
According to the court filing:
Prior to October 12, 2018 (the date of the gun purchase), the defendant took photos of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia on his phone.
– Also prior to his gun purchase, the defendant routinely sent messages about purchasing drugs.
– On October 13, 2018, and October 14, 2018 (the day after and two days after he purchased the firearm), the defendant messaged his girlfriend about meeting a drug dealer and smoking crack. For example, on October 13, 2018, the defendant messaged her and stated, “. . . I’m now off MD Av behind blue rocks stadium waiting for a dealer named Mookie.” The next day, the defendant messaged her and stated, “I was sleeping on a car smoking crack on 4th street and Rodney.”
– On October 23, 2018 (the day his then-girlfriend discarded his firearm), the defendant messaged his girlfriend and asked, “Did you take that from me [girlfriend]?” Later that evening, after his interactions with law enforcement, he messaged her about the “[t]he fucking FBI” and asked her, “so what’s my fault here [girlfriend] that you speak of. Owning a gun that’s in a locked car hidden on another property? You say I invade your privacy. What more can I do than come back to you to try again. And you do this???? Who in their right mind would trust you would help me get sober.” In response, the girlfriend stated “I’m sorry, I just want you safe. That was not safe. And it was open unlocked and windows down and the kids search your car. You have lost your mind hunter. I’m sorry I handled it poorly today but you are in huge denial about yourself and about that reality that I just want you safe. You run away like a child and blame me for your shit . . .”
– After the firearm was taken from him and recovered by police, the defendant continued to send messages to various people about his use of drugs, including telling his girlfriend that he is an “addict” on November 8, 2018, and on November 21, 2018, telling Person 1, “. . . I’m a fucking better man than any man you know whether I’m smoking crack or not.” He also continued to send messages about purchasing drugs. He sent a message to his girlfriend on November 29, 2018, stating, in relevant part, “I DONT BLAME MY ADDICTION ON YOU . . .” and another message to Person 2 on December 18, 2018, acknowledging that he is “an addict.” On December 28, 2018, he messaged Person 2 stating, “I’ll fuxking [sic] get sober when I want to get fucking sober.”
– During November and December 2018, the defendant took multiple photographs of videos apparent cocaine, crack cocaine, and drug paraphernalia.
