Hunter Guilty Verdict Is A Distraction, Trump Campaign Says

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign is warning that the guilty verdict handed down to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in his felony gun case, is a “distraction from the real crimes of the Biden Crime Family.”

In a prepared statement after the guilty verdict came in on Tuesday, Trump campaign spokesperson Karoline Leavitt said, “This trial has been nothing more than a distraction from the real crimes of the Biden Crime Family, which has raked in tens of millions of dollars from China, Russia and Ukraine.”

“Crooked Joe Biden’s reign over the Biden Family Criminal Empire is all coming to an end on November 5th, and never again will a Biden sell government access for personal profit,” she added.

Biden has been accused of profiting off his son’s influence peddling scheme and had a GOP impeachment inquiry panel dedicated to investigating the case. The inquiry has been on hold.

While he acknowledged that Hunter’s guilty verdict was a “step toward accountability,” House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY), who led the panel’s investigations, accused the Department of Justice of providing Biden a cover with Hunter’s case instead of investigating Hunter’s business dealings which Biden benefitted from.

Former Republican presidential primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy also called the gun-related trial “a sham” and “a smoke screen to legitimize the Trump conviction & to deflect attention from the Biden family’s actual likely crimes.”

In a video message posted on X, Ramaswamy argued that the case “avoids accountability for the Biden crime family on the actual things that Hunter Biden should have been charged for, like for example, peddling foreign influence while his actual father, Joe Biden, was the vice president of the United States.”

He also pointed out that the verdict was intended to legitimize Trump’s conviction, as he noted the close timings of the verdicts.
