Hunter Biden indicted

son Hunter Biden was indicted Thursday by special counsel David Weiss on three counts of illegally possessing a firearm while addicted to drugs.

The charges, which carry up to 10 years in prison, are the first to be filed by Weiss against the 53-year-old in his special counsel role and the first since a plea deal with Hunter’s attorneys collapsed in public fashion during a July court hearing.

The new charges were filed two days after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced an impeachment inquiry into President Biden’s involvement in his family’s overseas business dealings, which centered on Hunter and first brother James Biden.
