Hunter Biden was indicted Thursday on a federal gun charge out of Special Counsel David Weiss’ investigation.
Biden was charged with making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm; false statement related to information required to be kept by a 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.
The charges come after an original plea agreement collapsed in July. Hunter Biden was expected to plead guilty in July to two misdemeanor tax counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax as part of a plea deal to avoid jail time on a felony gun charge.
Hunter Biden was forced to plead not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
