Judge Slaps Down Hunter Biden Request for Special Treatment

1 min read

A federal judge denied a request from Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, regarding his arraignment next week on felony gun charges.

A lawyer for the president’s son argued in a court filing that Hunter Biden should not have to appear in person at his arraignment.

The filing said a virtual arraignment would “minimize an unnecessary burden on government resources and the disruption to the courthouse and downtown areas when a person protected by the Secret Service flies across the country and then must be transported to and from a downtown location.”

Hunter is currently living in California, while the arraignment will take place at a federal courthouse in Delaware.

His lawyer, Abbe Lowell, also said Biden would “enter a plea of not guilty, and there is no reason why he cannot utter those two words by video conference.”

However, U.S. Magistrate Judge Christopher J. Burke disagreed.

“Defendant should not receive special treatment in this matter,” he wrote in an order requiring Biden to appear in person. “Any other defendant would be required to attend his or her initial appearance in person. So too here.”

The judge scheduled the arraignment for the morning of September 26th.

President’s Son Faces Felony Gun Charges

Hunter was indicted on three counts of felony gun charges related to possession of a gun while using narcotics.

Two of the counts accuse him of lying on a federal form indicating he was not using drugs when he bought a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018. The indictments states he certified that “he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance, when in fact, as he knew, that statement was false and fictitious.”

The third count alleges he possessed a firearm while using a narcotic.

Two of the counts carry maximum sentences of 10 years in prison while the other carries a maximum of 5 years. Each count also carries a maximum fine of $250,000.

At the time, Hunter’s lawyer said the charges are politically influenced.


  1. If me or any other peon such as me did one tenth of what they have on this arrogant entitled POS we would be behind bars and they would have thrown away the key.

  2. What is this crap that H.Biden is living in California. He has been living in the White House for months and months. That’s why his drug stash was found in the W.H.

  3. If He gets off with no jail tme, then this will be a travesty to the “justice is blind” slogan pushed by the government. The corruption in Washington DC is being exposed and this Country can not survive till we get morally elected Officials in Congress and the Senate who are working for the people they were elected to serve rather than the Party they belong to. Are there any
    moral elected officials anymore? or have they all been corrupted with Money and Power? Thats why we hate Politicians who Favor ratings are in the low 15%-20%. and the SAD part of it is they just don’t care!
