Biden Says His Son Is What?

President Biden talked about how “proud of” Hunter Biden as he is “on the straight and narrow.” Hunter Biden is currently facing several criminal allegations relating to tax fraud and the purchase of a firearm.

In an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper on Tuesday, Biden said that he was proud of his son for all that he has overcome, including his drug addiction. He also noted that his son has made a life for himself despite that rough period.

Tapper also asked Biden about the potential charges that his son might face, which include tax and false statements charges from David Weiss, the US Attorney for Delaware, and according to recent reports, tax fraud and withholding the information of his past drug use during the purchase of a gun.

President Biden, who has maintained that he does not know his son’s business dealings, said that he is confident his son is telling the truth about what happened. Biden also pointed out that Hunter had previously written a book where he had opened up about his struggles with drugs.

The allegations regarding the gun purchase specifically relate to an application made by Hunter Biden, where he wrote no to the question of whether he was currently using drugs. This incident was one that Hunter Biden also recounted in his book.

In 2014, Hunter Biden was discharged from the Navy after he tested positive for cocaine. The gun purchase incident occurred in 2018, at the time he had withheld the truth regarding his usage of drugs. He has been under federal investigation since then.

House Republicans have said that they were going to probe into Hunter Biden’s case if they retake the House majority.
