Hunter Suffers HUGE Loss

(TheIndependentStar.com) – Following his conviction on three gun felonies earlier this month, Hunter Biden’s law license in Washington, D.C., is being suspended.

The D.C. Court of Appeals ruled that “The respondent is suspended immediately from the practice of law in the District of Columbia pending resolution of this matter.” He was a member of the D.C. bar in good standing until his conviction for “serious crimes” under D.C. bar rules.

Two weeks ago, a Delaware jury convicted Hunter on three federal gun charges after three hours of deliberation.

Hunter was convicted on two false statement charges and one possession charge for lying about his drug addiction on gun paperwork and possessing a Colt Cobra revolver for eleven days while addicted to crack cocaine. His attorneys are seeking a new trial and an acquittal on the gun charges.

A Yale Law School graduate, Hunter previously worked for Boies Schiller Flexner LLP and held various lobbying and business roles. Yet, House Republicans continue to investigate his foreign business dealings with entities in Ukraine, China, Romania, and elsewhere.

At trial, Biden’s defense team highlighted his professional achievements, omitting his foreign business dealings.

Since becoming sober, Hunter’s main sources of income have been his memoir, Beautiful Things, and his painting. His friend Kevin Morris has spent an estimated $6.5 million in recent years covering Biden’s personal expenses and overdue taxes.

Moreover, prosecutors played lengthy audiobook excerpts from Hunter’s memoir during the trial, letting the jury hear Hunter describe his crack cocaine-fueled episodes.

While Hunter’s sentencing is scheduled for later this year, his father, Joe Biden, has said he will not pardon him or commute his sentence. Hunter faces up to 25 years in prison but will likely receive a lenient sentence as a first-time, non-violent offender.

In September, Hunter will stand trial on nine federal tax charges for allegedly failing to pay over $1.4 million in taxes over a four-year period, but he has pleaded not guilty to the charges
