Appeals court declines to throw out Hunter Biden gun charges

by | May 9, 2024

A federal appeals court declined to dismiss Hunter Biden's federal gun indictment on Thursday, setting the stage for a significant criminal trial scheduled for next month in Delaware.

Hunter had sought to have the charges thrown out by overturning previous decisions from the trial judge, who ruled that the case should proceed. However, the appellate panel rejected Biden's appeal, providing another win for special counsel David Weiss, who brought the charges.

Weiss' team successfully contended that the appellate court lacked jurisdiction to review the matter and was therefore obligated by law to dismiss Biden's appeal.

A jury trial is slated to begin June 3rd at 8:30am. It is expected to last 3 to 6 days.
