White House reveals Biden's view on pardoning Hunter if he's convicted

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre revealed the Biden administration's position on how it would respond to a potential pardon for Hunte Biden if he is convicted.

Jean-Pierre confirmed that the president would not commute or pardon his son's sentence for any crimes he may be sentenced for while he is in office.

The answer

“Would the president pardon or commute his son if he’s convicted?” a reporter asked.

“So, I’ve answered this question before, it was asked of me not too long ago, a couple of weeks ago,” she said. “And I was very clear, and I said, ‘no.'” Jean-Pierre said Monday.

The charges

"Hunter Biden, has been indicted by special counsel David Weiss in connection with a gun he purchased in 2018, the first time in US history the Justice Department has charged the child of a sitting president," CNN reported last week.

"The three charges include making false statements on a federal firearms form and possession of a firearm as a prohibited person," it continued.

The arraignment

"Hunter Biden is battling federal prosecutors in trying to have his initial court appearance on federal firearm charges held via video conference, according to an order filed by a federal judge on Monday," Fox News reported.

"U.S. Magistrate Judge Christopher J. Burke issued the order asking Hunter’s lawyers to explain no later than Tuesday why they want his arraignment held via video conference — a request prosecutors have opposed, Burke wrote," it added.

The first son could face up to 25 years in prison for the firearm charges in the maximum sentence over the three counts. The penalties could also include up to $750,000 in fines.

The House Oversight Committee is also investigating the president's son on additional issues related to allegations of business bribery involving millions of dollars with companies in China and Ukraine.

Hunter Biden's situation continues to grow worse, with the White House now publicly acknowledging that there are no plans for the president to intervene through a pardon if he is convicted of any of the firearm charges.
