Judge Slaps Down Hunter Biden Request for Special Treatment

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.


    • It doesn’t matter what happens with any trials that come up, we can bet that Hunter will not spend any time behind bars. Old senile Joe made millions of dollars in bribe money during his career, but now days his mind is shot so it’s Hunters turn to keep the family money coming in. I still find it strange how someone can go into politics with very little money and by the time they leave office they are millionaires. And we keep sending those type people to run our government, are we stupid or what?

  1. First of all why is Hunter Bidumb protected by Secret Service?? He is surly NOT special by any stretch of the imagination. And he certainly has enough “money”; thanks to all of he and his fathers bribery scams since Dad was a feckless V.P. to be able to afford his own security even if he needs it. The entire Bidumb Crime Family belongs in prison. I would recommend GITMO as long as we still operate it.

  2. A LOT of money is being spent on this guy because he’s Joe’s son. If he were anyone else he’d already be in jail. As it is, a lot more money will be spent and it will all be wasted because after Joe wins reelection – or not – Joe is going to give Hunter a full pardon. So it’s all political theatrics on both sides when anyone with half a brain already knows that Joe and his whole family are a bunch of crooks.

  3. A small thing compared to the laws being broken by Puppet Biden and the marxist crowd behind him. Isn’t Biden breaking federal law by refusing to secure the border?

  4. globalist puppet, god worshiping, crackhead hunter is protected by a globalist puppet, god worshiping, demonrat, crackhead secret service agent so when they forget their crack behind no one knows who to blame it on .

  5. He should be treated as his Father is Treating Trump . This man is owed NO Respect he is crooked as his old feble father. Guilty and a trader to our country as his father is. Yet not being brought on charges as such this is a travisty of justice . This is as useless as tits on Bulls .
