Lawyers, Guns, and Money: Hunter Biden Delaware Trial – Day 1

Published June 4, 2024

We turn our attention now from Manhattan to Wilmington, Delaware, where another high-profile political figure is standing trial on felony charges. Granted, Hunter Biden isn’t himself a politician, but given his relationship to the President of the United States, I’d say he qualifies.

Monday marked Day 1 in his Delaware gun trial. I couldn’t hope to provide a better, more thorough overview of the case than Mia Cathell did over at our sister site, Townhall. I highly encourage you to read her detailed explainer.

READ: Hunter Biden’s Gun Case Explained

Just a brief excerpt from Mia’s article to set the table:

Namely, President Joe Biden’s No. 1 Boy is charged with making a false statement during a background check to deceive a federally licensed firearms dealer in Wilmington, Delaware—his father’s home turf (Count 1), making a false statement on a form that the seller kept as the firearm transaction record (Count 2), and illegally possessing the gun over an 11-day period (Count 3).

The prosecution will argue that Hunter Biden knowingly lied on the federal form (“ATF Form 4473“) by falsely attesting he was not an unlawful user or addict of a controlled substance, i.e. crack cocaine, when he was both, thereby violating federal law; thus, by lying, Hunter Biden was able to illegally buy the gun, a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver, on October 12, 2018, and he chose to unlawfully possess that firearm until it was taken from his possession about a week and a half later on October 23, 2018.

If convicted, the charges are punishable by up to 25 years in prison, plus $750,000 in fines and nine years of supervised release.

As an added bonus, Mia is actually attending this trial, so Townhall Media (of which RedState is a proud part) will be able to bring you the latest on it quickly throughout.

Trial kicks off in earnest Tuesday with opening statements

Published June 4, 2024

WILMINGTON, Del. — First son Hunter Biden’s criminal trial kicked off Monday in Delaware with jury selection, which revealed that the majority of potential jurors have personally been affected by drug addiction in their own families or social circles.

“This is Delaware. You can’t swing a cat without hearing something [about the case],” one male potential juror told the court Monday.

President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is facing three felony firearm offenses regarding the 2018 purchase of a .38 revolver from a gun shop in the state. Prosecutors are expected to dive into the first son’s crack cocaine addiction related to the purchase of the handgun amid the case.

Biden has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On Monday, the court heard from more than 60 potential jurors, who appeared before the court individually after filling out a questionnaire related to whether or not they could serve as impartial jurors in the case. By late Monday afternoon, 12 jurors and four alternates were selected from the pool.

The primary body of jurors is composed of six men and six women.

Jury selection lasted the entirety of the day, with the majority of potential jurors telling the court that they have personally experienced addiction issues through their friends and family. Many of the jurors, no matter their racial background, sex or age, responded that they have had a relative who struggled with drug addiction or alcoholism



RELATED: House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith to Criminally Refer Hunter Biden For Lying to Congress

Published June 3, 2024

The very powerful House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) will criminally refer Hunter Biden for lying to Congress.

Last month Chairman Smith accused Hunter Biden of lying under oath during his closed-door deposition before Congress in February.

New documents provided by a whistleblower contradict Hunter Biden’s testimony to Congress. Hunter Biden repeatedly lied to Congress about his family’s international influence-peddling scheme. according to Chairman Smith.

“Hunter Biden has shown once again he believes there are two systems of justice in this country – one for his family, and one for everyone else. Not only did Hunter Biden refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he then came before Congress and lied,” House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith told Fox News. “The Ways and Means Committee’s investigation, and the documents released today, are not part of a personal vendetta against Hunter Biden, but are meant to ensure the equal application of the law.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
