Judge rejects motions to dismiss Hunter Biden’s gun case

by | Apr 12, 2024

A judge declined to dismiss a federal gun case against Hunter Biden on Friday, rejecting his assertion that he is being targeted for political reasons, among other arguments.

The judge has not made a ruling on the constitutionality of the gun charges.

Hunter Biden's legal team contended that the case was politically driven and maintained that an immunity provision from an initial plea deal that collapsed remains valid. They also challenged the appointment of special counsel David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware, who is overseeing the prosecution.
