So, Hunter’s Convictions

Hunter Biden has been convicted on all three felony charges – two counts related to false statements in purchasing the firearm and a third count of illegally obtaining a firearm while addicted to drugs. This is, of course, a “historic moment,” the first time a sitting president’s offspring has been found guilty of felonies.

Truth be told though, this is only news at all because Hunter’s last name is Biden and that the DOJ tried to keep this whole thing – and his tax fraud – out of the courtroom in the first place. Aside from that, the only way this could have been news is if the jury had acquitted Hunter.

He’s not going to go to prison. First time, nonviolent offenders rarely do and even more rarely do so if they don’t make a spectacle out of the court proceedings, which Hunter, to his credit, didn’t. And, there’s really no way his conviction on these charges will in any meaningful way impact the upcoming elections. It take a great deal more than that to change anyone’s vote.
