Trump Campaign Releases Statement on Hunter Biden Verdict, Calls Out ‘Biden Crime Family’

The presidential campaign of former President Donald Trump on Tuesday reminded the nation that the conviction of Hunter Biden is only a small piece of a larger picture.

Hunter Biden was convicted on three felony counts — making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm, making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federally licensed firearms dealer, and possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of or addict to a controlled substance, according to the New York Post.

The Trump campaign noted that the gun charges were barely the tip of the Biden family iceberg.

“This trial has been nothing more than a distraction from the real crimes of the Biden Crime Family, which has raked in tens of millions of dollars from China, Russia and Ukraine,” the Trump campaign said in a statement, according to CNN.

“Crooked Joe Biden’s reign over the Biden Family Criminal Empire is all coming to an end on Nov. 5, and never again will a Biden sell government access for personal profit,” the statement said.

“As for Hunter, we wish him well in his recovery and legal affairs,” the statement concluded. CNN said an updated version of the statement removed this phrase.

Noting that the conviction followed an attempt by the Department of Justice last year to wipe away the crimes in a plea deal that later collapsed, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer of Kentucky said that the verdict is not the end. Comer’s panel has been investigating connections between Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden, and other family members in deals that enriched the Biden family.

“Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal was smoked out after scrutiny by a federal judge,” he said, according to the committee’s website.

“Today’s verdict is a step toward accountability but until the Department of Justice investigates everyone involved in the Bidens’ corrupt influence-peddling schemes that generated over $18 million in foreign payments to the Biden family, it will be clear department officials continue to cover for the Big Guy, Joe Biden,” he said.

“I am glad to see that justice has been served. Nobody is above the law, including the President’s son,” Republican Rep. Josh Brecheen of Oklahoma posted on X.

After the verdict, Hunter Biden issued a statement focusing on substance abuse recovery, according to The Washington Post.

‘“I am more grateful today for the love and support I experienced this last week from Melissa, my family, my friends, and my community than I am disappointed by the outcome. Recovery is possible by the grace of God, and I am blessed to experience that gift one day at a time,” the statement said.

The trial is not the end of the legal challenges facing Hunter Biden. In September, he faces a trial on federal tax charges.

The tax charges were also part of a plea deal that fell apart last summer, leading to a new prosecution that resulted in the gun charges upon which Hunter Biden was convicted and the tax charges for which a trial looms.

      We will see. And if he does, then this would be yet another thing democrats claimed Trump would do, but Biden actually did.

      • Irishgal says:

        Remember: When a demo points a finger, they have 3 pointing right back. When they say “our democracy is in danger etc’ the real word is- Our POWER is in danger…
