Hunter Biden in ‘dark and gloomy’ place at gun indictment: ‘They feel defeated’

Things in the Hunter Biden camp are pretty “dark and gloomy” following his gun indictment, according to one CNN journalist.

“I got the sense that it’s just pretty dark and gloomy over there,” journalist Paula Reid said of those close to the first son upon hearing the historic announcement. “They feel defeated.”

As BizPac Review reported, Joe Biden’s scandal-ridden son was slapped with three felony counts on Thursday: one count of False Statement in Purchase of a Firearm, one count of False Statement Related to Information Required to be Kept By Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, and one count of Possession of a Firearm by a Person who is an Unlawful User of or Addicted to a Controlled Substance.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.

Spirits among Hunter’s supporters began sinking, Reid said, after his sweetheart of a plea deal fell apart in July.

“They really thought they were gonna be successful with that plea deal that they had negotiated,” Reid said. “Even when it first fell apart they felt the judge would ultimately approve it.”

“And when that didn’t happen,” she continued, “there was quite a bit of despair because Hunter Biden is facing millions and millions of dollars in legal debt from his various legal issues.”

“And it’s very difficult for him to find employment right now or raise money,” Reid added, “so these charges today, I am told, this came as news to his team. They have not scheduled an initial appearance or how exactly he’s going to turn himself in.”

According to Reid, Hunter doesn’t want to “burden” the Big Guy with his legal woes.

“He’s actually still very close to his dad, they talk frequently but they don’t talk about this,” she said of Hunter’s relationship with President Joe Biden. “Hunter doesn’t want to burden his father with it.”

But, according to the Daily Mail, Joe Biden knew full well that his son was “having a drug-fueled meltdown” when he bought the .38 caliber Colt revolver and lied about his drug addiction on the form.

On October 15, 2018, three days after the firearm was purchased, Joe left Hunter an emotional voicemail in which he begged his son to get some help.

“It’s Dad, calling to tell you I love you,” the elder Biden said.

“I love you more than the whole world pal,” he continued. “You gotta get some help. I know you don’t know what to do, I don’t either. I’m here, no matter what you need.”

Considering the Democrats’ Constitution-crushing stand on guns, many are now wondering if President Biden will pardon his son, should he be convicted.

So far, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre says the answer is a simple, “No.”

Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) agreed that it would be a “mistake” for the president to pardon his son.

“And I don’t think there’s any chance that President Biden is going to do that…” he told ABC’s Jon Karl in July.

Unlike former President Donald Trump, Goldman argued, “President Biden has restored the integrity of the Department of Justice and I think you see that in this case.”

But not everyone agrees that a pardon is off the table.

According to Garrett Ziegler,  a former Trump White House aide who is currently being sued by Hunter Biden for disseminating information from the infamous “laptop from hell,” there’s no chance that Joe Biden won’t pardon his son.

“Even if it’s the last night he’s there,” Ziegler said, “Joe will pardon the family at the federal level because he’s terrified of what President Trump will do after the fact.”
