Hunter Gets Bad News

(DCWatchdog.com) – Getting more desperate by the day, Hunter Biden received bad news as his latest attempt to delay his gun charges trial was denied.

The judge overseeing the trial dismissed claims that Hunter’s legal team needed more time to prepare for the June 3 start date.

This happened after Hunter’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, appeared in federal district court and argued to push the trial to September.

Lowell emphasized the difficulty in securing expert witnesses for Joe Biden’s son, especially those knowledgeable in drug addiction and drug forensics. He also remarked that this situation was unlike anything he had encountered before.

“We have not been delaying, we have not been tardy,” Lowell stated. “We have been trying.”

Moreover, the lawyer mentioned that three potential expert witnesses had been found but were hesitant to commit due to the case’s high-profile nature.

Hunter Biden faces three felony counts for allegedly possessing a gun while using drugs and lying on a form when purchasing the gun in 2018. The charges were brought by special counsel David Weiss.

Judge Maryellen Noreika, appointed by Donald Trump, declined the delay.

She pointed out that the indictment was issued eight months ago and that Hunter’s lawyers had known about the investigation long before that. When Lowell pleaded for a postponement until early July, Noreika remained firm.

“I am pleading with your honor to give me the time to do this,” Lowell claimed.

Noreika was unimpressed and expressed irritation with the defense. She curtly told Lowell, “I do not need to be your scheduling secretary.”

In addition to the gun case in Delaware, Hunter Biden faces separate charges in California over tax issues. Both cases stem from a long investigation led by Weiss.

Hunter’s legal team has also tried to dismiss both indictments, but the judges overseeing the cases, Noreika and Judge Mark Scarsi in California, have rejected these motions, which led to longshot appeals.

Hunter’s lawyers hinted they are running low on resources to manage both cases.

“They have the resources to be ready on both coasts,” Lowell expressed, referring to the prosecutors. “I wish we did. But it’s not for want of trying.”

Lowell also announced plans to seek an injunction from an appellate court to halt the trial. However, Noreika was not moved, was skeptical about the success of such an appeal, and doubted Lowell’s claim of unpreparedness.
