A jury in the trial of Hunter Biden found him guilty on three felony counts of purchasing a firearm while an active drug user, setting the son of President Joe Biden up for potential prison time with less than five months before Election Day.

The jury, which deliberated for just three hours across Monday and Tuesday, was asked to weigh whether Hunter lied on official documents when he denied using drugs while purchasing a handgun in 2018. Prosecutors with the office of special counsel David Weiss later charged him by citing portions of his 2021 autobiography where Hunter admits to smoking crack cocaine around the time of the purchase. His sister-in-law and former lover Hallie Biden testified in court that she witnessed Hunter using crack cocaine around the same time. Photographic evidence pulled from Hunter's laptop showed him surrounded by drug paraphernalia and appearing to smoke crack.

“He knew he was using drugs. That's what the evidence shows. And he knew he was addicted to drugs. That's what the evidence shows,” prosecutor Leo Wise told the jury in closing arguments on Monday.

In opposition, the defense argued that Hunter did not consider himself an “addict” at the time of the firearms purchase. The government form, which asks whether a gun purchaser is “an unlawful user of, or addicted to” drugs, was marked “no” by Hunter at the time. His attorneys argue that his completion of rehabilitation in August of 2018 supported the argument that he was not an active drug user at the time. In addition, defense lawyers argued that no one saw Hunter using drugs in the 11 days while he possessed the gun before Hallie, upon discovering it, threw it away.

“With my last breath in this case, I ask for the only verdict that will hold the prosecutors to what the law requires of them,” said Hunter's lawyer Abbe Lowell, referencing a not-guilty verdict.

The development will certainly throw the White House into chaos as press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre prepares to answer questions before the press corps on Tuesday afternoon. The White House has steadfastly maintained that President Biden loves his son unconditionally, even as former aides have suggested that Hunter downplay his court appearances and distance himself from his father's reelection campaign.
