Hunter Biden Seeks Dismissal Of Firearms Charges

Hunter Biden Now Claims IMMUNITY On Gun Charges

2110

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, is seeking the dismissal of multiple serious firearm-related charges through a legal motion. One of the key arguments in this motion is the assertion of “immunity” in his case. This legal maneuver follows a prior attempt by Hunter Biden to enter a not guilty plea remotely, which was rejected by a judge who insisted on a physical courtroom appearance.

The legal representatives of the President’s son contend that the initial plea agreement made in July, under the supervision of U.S. Attorney David Weiss, is still in effect. They argue that the charges should be dismissed based on the immunity clauses outlined in that agreement.

As per the indictment, Hunter Biden is accused of providing untrue information while acquiring a firearm in 2018 and subsequently disposing of the weapon. These charges entail substantial potential consequences, which may include a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.

Notwithstanding the submission of legal documents, the office led by Weiss refuted the assertion that any components of the unsuccessful plea agreement remained operational. They contended that Hunter Biden’s legal team had pieced together fragments in an attempt to impact the case. The special counsel’s office clarified that the ultimate agreement had not received approval from the presiding judge in the case.

It has been reported that Weiss is exploring various alternative charges against the President’s son, which may pertain to his business transactions and tax responsibilities. IRS informants have suggested the possibility of Department of Justice involvement in the inquiry into the younger Biden, particularly regarding alleged efforts to evade tax payments.

In the initial plea agreement, there was a stipulation in which Hunter Biden confessed to failing to report taxes on $1.5 million of income earned during the years 2017 and 2018. The initial investigation suggested that the President’s son had not paid $2.2 million in taxes on earnings totaling $8.3 million spanning the years 2014 to 2019. These earnings included income from foreign origins like Ukraine, Russia, and China.

Attorneys representing Hunter Biden assert that the sole modification that Weiss, who assumed the role of special counsel following the breakdown of the plea agreement, could enact is to bring forth charges connected to Hunter Biden’s tax matters.
