A jury has found Hunter Biden guilty of three felonies following a show trial designed to humiliate the son of the President over a bullshit gun charge that was so rarely brought against suspects that even Republicans Lindsay Graham and Trey Gowdy thought it was politically orchestrated. He was convicted of lying after failing to check a box indicating that he was abusing drugs when he purchased a firearm in 2018.

Hunter Biden faces up to 25 years in prison. Sentencing will take place in the next 120 days. His father, President Joe Biden, has said he will not pardon his son (at least until he’s on his way out of office). It was a trumped-up charge that should have been settled years ago with maybe a misdemeanor and a small fine. But the law is the law. Technically, Hunter Biden broke the law. Technically, the prosecutors had the discretion to bring the charges. The evidence supported the jury verdict, even if most of the evidence was unnecessary and only presented to embarrass and shame Hunter Biden for his past drug abuse. Deliberations only took three hours.

That said, I think we can all agree that the felony conviction should disqualify Hunter Biden from running for higher office. Certainly, three felony convictions should preclude him from running for President of the United States. Within the next five months, Congress should consider amending the Constitution to prohibit convicted felons from running for the highest office in the land. Such an amendment would certainly have my support.

Hunter Biden still has charges pending against him for tax evasion.
