On Tuesday afternoon, Joe Biden released a statement after a jury found his son, Hunter Biden, guilty on all three felonies in the criminal gun trial against him.

Hunter Biden should be facing 25 years in prison, however, it’s likely he will face no prison time.

Prosecutors demonstrated that Hunter Biden was using crack cocaine when he purchased a firearm in 2018.

Joe Biden’s statement did not address his son Hunter’s gun crimes directly; instead, he focused on Hunter’s struggle with drug addiction in an effort to garner sympathy.

“As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today. So many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone you love come out the other side and be so strong and resilient in recovery,” Biden said.

“As I also said last week, I will accept the outcome of this case and will continue to respect the judicial process as Hunter considers an appeal. Jill and I will always be there for Hunter and the rest of our family with our love and support. Nothing will ever change that.”

Joe Biden has consistently stated that he will not pardon his son Hunter.

In an interview with ABC News, Biden repeated, once again, that he would not pardon Hunter if convicted on the federal gun charges.


However, immediately following Hunter’s conviction, CNN pointed out that Joe Biden still has the option to commute whatever sentence Hunter may be given.
