Special Counsel Aims to Indict Hunter Biden on Gun Charges

Special counsel David Weiss has announced plans to pursue an indictment against Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, in connection with gun-related charges by the end of this month, according to the Justice Department’s statement on Wednesday.

Hunter Biden had previously entered into an agreement related to a gun possession charge, which could have spared him from prosecution if he met specific conditions within a 24-month period. Following the breakdown of his plea deal in court, the fate of the gun-related matter has been uncertain.

“The Speedy Trial Act mandates that the Government secure an indictment from a grand jury by Friday, September 29, 2023, at the earliest. The Government intends to request an indictment in this case before that deadline,” stated the special counsel’s office in a court filing.
