    The Facts

    • Pres. Biden's son Hunter Biden will plead not guilty to three federal gun charges, his attorney said in a court filing on Tuesday.

    • Adding that his client is requesting not to appear in federal court in Wilmington, Hunter's lawyer said: "There is no reason why he can't utter those two words [not guilty] by videoconference."


    The Spin

    Democratic narrative

    Hunter Biden is cooperating fully with this witch hunt of an investigation and indictment. The Republicans are desperate to take any avenue possible to bring frivolous charges against him and link Pres. Biden to alleged misconduct, even if that means fabricating ridiculous stories and trumping charges.

    Republican narrative

    Hunter Biden knowingly lied on a federal form and purchased a firearm while addicted to a controlled substance. He could have seriously injured someone while incapacitated by drugs and deserves to be punished to the full extent of the law.
