The less time there is until the US presidential election, the more intriguing news is coming from abroad about the main candidates for the highest offices. Before passions calmed down in May over the conviction of Donald Trump, who hid the payment of money to a woman to keep silent about their intimate relationship, the son of the current occupant of the White House, Hunter Biden, was court .

Today in Delaware, after a week-long trial, a jury found him guilty of committing the crime of fraudulently purchasing a firearm in 2018, which he had no right to possess because he was a chronic drug addict. The jury returned its verdict unanimously. Now the judge leading the trial will determine the punishment for Biden Jr. Under US law, he could face up to 25 years in prison. But, since Hunter committed the crime for the first time, most likely he will not be deprived of his liberty and fined $750 thousand.

President Joe Biden has the right to pardon his son, but he has already stated that he will not do so and will accept any court decision. Hunter himself never admitted his guilt, stating that by the time he purchased the gun he had almost stopped using drugs and that he had only had the gun for 11 days. The trunk was accidentally found by the presidential son’s then-lover and she threw it away, fearing that Hunter, after suffering an overdose, might commit suicide. But these arguments did not convince the jury.

As the American media that covered the trial noted, during the reading of the verdict the defendant “stared” and “showed almost no emotion.” His current wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, was in court.

But this was just the first act of Hunter Biden’s legal ordeal. Another trial against him will begin in September in California, for tax evasion. And there, if he is convicted, Hunter could face a much more serious punishment. It’s clear that this will definitely impact his father right before presidential election day.
