Jury to resume deliberations in Hunter Biden gun case

Jurors will resume deliberations on Tuesday in the criminal case against Hunter Biden over a gun he bought in 2018 when prosecutors say he was in the throes of a crack cocaine addiction.

Jurors deliberated for less than an hour on Monday afternoon before leaving the federal courthouse in Delaware. They’re weighing whether Joe Biden’s son is guilty of three felonies in the case pitting him against his father’s justice department in the middle of the Democratic president’s re-election campaign.

Prosecutors spent last week using testimony from his ex-wife and former girlfriends, photos of him with drug paraphernalia, and other tawdry evidence to make the case that he lied when he checked “no” on the form at the gun shop that asked whether he was “an unlawful user of, or addicted to” drugs.

The trial began last week in Delaware’s federal court with prosecutors seeking to show that Hunter Biden was addicted and regularly using drugs during the 11-day period when he bought and owned the gun.

Hunter Biden’s defense team sought to show he didn’t consider himself an “addict” when he filled out the form and said he was trying to turn his life around at the time.
