There is a thing everyone is missing about the case of Hunter Biden

The Story of Hunter Biden: An Addiction Witness Accused of Lying About His Use of a Colt Resonance, and of Using a Weapon to Defend His Anonymity

The verdict, handed down after three hours of deliberations, capped a weeklong trial in federal court in Wilmington, Del. The jury found Hunter Biden guilty on two counts of making false statements about his drug use when he bought the weapon, and one count of illegal possession of a firearm by a drug user or addict.

After the verdict, Hunter Biden said: “I’m more thankful for the support I received from my family, friends and community than I am disappointed by the outcome.”

The Colt revolver the president’s son bought at a gun store in Delaware was the subject of this story. It was thrown away in a trash can outside a grocery store 11 days later.

Over the course of the trial, prosecutors sought to prove that Hunter lied when he purchased the gun and that he was a drug user.

Three women involved with Hunter Biden, including his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, were called to testify by prosecutors.

Buhle, who was subpoenaed to testify, told the jury about first discovering her then-husband’s drug use when she found a crack pipe on the porch of their home the day after their 22nd wedding anniversary. The couple divorced in 2017.

Hallie Biden testified that she and Hunter Biden were romantically involved after Hunter Biden’s brother died. She told jurors that Hunter had introduced her to crack, and that they smoked it together—a period of her life, she said, that she was embarrassed and ashamed of.

The story of Hunter Biden is about careless choices made by a drug addicted person. It’s about the fact that addicts weave tragedy into their own lives and into the lives of those around them. People who are addicted think about themselves, not other people. And they lie — that’s how they supply their addiction.

He bought the gun a few days before he sent the text messages. He claimed in one that he was sleeping on a car and in the other that he was waiting for a dealer named Mookie.

The jury was given a short period of time to focus on, which was 11 days prior to Hallie Biden finding the gun and throwing it in a trash can.

The drug texts the government did produce dating to the period Hunter Biden owned the gun Lowell tried to diffuse as nothing more than facetious messages his client sent to Hallie Biden.

What if he had lied about his addiction to cocaine had been a drug or a weed? The tale of a teenager who might have killed someone

I was an amphetamines addicted person when I was a teenager in the early 20s. I had prescription drugs and meth in the garage, but I went to the doctors and lied about it. When my fondness for speed led me to cocaine, I got behind the wheel of my car and drove home some nights up a winding, treacherous canyon road thinking nothing of the fact that I might kill someone on that road, including myself.

Some have focused on the fact that if he had just agreed to a more modest plea deal, he could have lessened his family’s pain by sparing everyone this very public trial. Maybe. When selfishness leads to wrong roads after the addiction loosened its grip, there is more of a need for drugs.
