International Desk: US President Joe Biden said he will not pardon his son Hunter Biden if he is found guilty of federal charges. White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said on Friday. Hunter Biden will be sentenced if found guilty. Karin Jean-Pierre said in response to a question about whether President Biden would pardon or reduce her son's outfit. This is the first time since Hunter Biden was indicted in court that the White House has clearly said that he will not be pardoned by the president.

US President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden has been formally charged in the firearms case. He was charged with three counts of false information about drug addiction and illegal possession of firearms. Prosecutors charged him in Delaware federal court on Thursday (September 14) local time. Two days after announcing the start of a formal impeachment inquiry against Biden to remove him from power, son Hunter Biden was charged in the firearms case.

Prosecutors on Thursday filed charges against Hunter Biden in a Delaware court on several counts, including false information about illegal weapons and drug addiction. Hunter is accused of making false statements about drug use when purchasing a firearm in October 2018.

According to the complaint, he knowingly and knowingly made a false and fictitious statement that he was not an illegal user or addict of any stimulant, narcotic or other substance by certifying in the mandatory form, which is illegal. According to the country's law, two of the three charges against Hunter Biden carry a maximum sentence of 10 years and another a maximum of five years in prison. Tax evasion allegations against the president's son are also under investigation.

In 2017-18, Hunter allegedly did not pay taxes on $1.3 million in income. Lawyers said that if he is guilty of this charge, he can be sentenced to one year in prison. Earlier, the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Kevin McCarthy, announced the start of the official impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden last Tuesday.

The opposition camp has already begun investigating allegations of abuse of power, obstruction and corruption against Biden. However, President Biden has denied this allegation. He claimed that Republicans wanted to remove him.
