White House Hints: Joe Biden Might Commute Hunter Biden’s Sentence

The White House hasn’t ruled out the possibility that President Joe Biden may commute Hunter Biden’s upcoming federal sentence following his conviction on gun-related charges.

Hunter Biden’s sentencing date has not yet been scheduled. In the federal system, it’s common for there to be a two to three-month delay between conviction and sentencing.

“As we all know, the sentencing hasn’t even been scheduled yet,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Wednesday.

Joe Biden told ABC News last week that he would NOT pardon his son.

“He was very clear, very upfront, obviously very definitive,” Jean-Pierre said about a potential pardon. Regarding a commutation, “I just don’t have anything beyond that,” she said.

Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison and $750,000 of fines.

As we previously reported in a recent similar gun case, Judge Maryellen Noreika, who is presiding over Hunter Biden’s trial, handed down a one-year sentence. Despite the defense requesting a six-month sentence, but Noreika gave him one year.
