According to information secured by the EFE news agency, Hunter Biden, son of US President Joe Biden, made an appearance this Tuesday.

He presented himself in a federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, pleading not guilty to the three charges he faces.

These charges pertain to the illegal purchase and possession of a revolver in 2018.

The allegations are tied to false statements on a form concerning drug use and possession of the firearm during his battle with crack addiction.

This marks Hunter Biden’s first court appearance since his indictment on September 14.

During the court hearing, which lasted approximately half an hour, Judge Christopher Burke ensured that Hunter Biden understood the charges against him.

This was before allowing the president’s son to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty, with him declaring the latter.

The legal proceedings are enveloped in significant media attention and security, owing to Hunter Biden’s public prominence as the son of the current United States president.

Hunter Biden, aged 53, is facing two counts of making false statements on a gun purchase form in 2018, specifically denying his drug addiction.

The third charge leveled at the president’s son pertains to the illegal possession of a weapon despite being cognizant of his drug addiction.

This judicial process stems from an investigation that commenced in 2018 during the government of Donald Trump.

The case has evolved into a recurring topic in the political arena, potentially influencing the upcoming 2024 elections.

The investigation and ensuing charges have been leveraged in the political arena as a means to assail the current President, Joe Biden.

This presidential figure is one whom Trump could potentially face in the 2024 elections in a bid for the White House.

Hunter Biden’s legal predicament also coincides with an impeachment investigation, initiated by the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

In this, President Biden is accused of favoring his son’s foreign business endeavors, allegations that the White House has robustly denied.

«The Hunter Biden case has shifted directions with the appointment of prosecutor David Weiss, designated as the special prosecutor for this case by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

According to EFE, Weiss has the authority to compile a report on his investigation, which could potentially be made public during the 2024 electoral campaign.

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden is gearing up for a trial that is likely to unfold in the midst of the election campaign,

which could substantially impact the political landscape and the upcoming elections.
