Hunter Biden steps out in Malibu – 24 hours after Special Counsel said he would indict him on gun charges

Hunter Biden took a stroll in Malibu with his Secret Service detail – 24 hours after Special Counsel David Weiss warned they were seeking to indict him by the end of September for buying a gun while using drugs.

The president’s scandal-hit son donned his trademark aviators and cap after spending an hour in an upscale restaurant near the $15,800-per-month pad he’s renting with wife Melissa and son Beau.

The 53-year-old look relaxed, despite his growing legal problems and the firearms charges that could land him a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Hunter had reached a deal that would have allowed him to avoid trial for the firearms charges if he abided by parole conditions over 24 months.

But the deal spectacularly collapsed in court in July when the judge picked apart the agreement between prosecutors and his defense lawyers.

Now the charges for lying on a federal firearms form appear to be back on the table, according to a new filing signed on Wednesday by Special Counsel Weiss.

‘The Speedy Trial Act requires that the Government obtain the return of an indictment by a grand jury by Friday, September 29, 2023, at the earliest,’ the filing read. ‘The Government intends to seek the return of an indictment in this case before that date.’

Hunter Biden is also under investigation for his foreign business dealings, which are also the focus of probes started by House Republicans in Congress

He was supposed to be spared from jailtime when Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, and his lawyers inked a plea deal where the younger Biden would plead guilty to two misdemeanor crimes of failure to pay more than $100,000 in taxes. 

Hunter had made more than $1.5 million in income in 2017 and 2018.   

As part of the plea deal, he would have avoided prosecution for the gun charge if he met certain conditions over a 24-month.

Hunter had lied on a 2018 application to buy a gun. 

A photo of the form shows he answered ‘no’ when asked if he was an ‘unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.’ 

Hunter wrote about his extensive drug use during that period of his life in his 2021 memoir, Beautiful Things.  

Republicans in Washington complained that the president’s son had gotten himself a ‘sweetheart deal.’
