Jurors seated in Hunter Biden gun trial

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR)— Jury selection started Monday for President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

The federal trial stems from three felony charges related to the younger Biden’s unlawful purchase and possession of a gun.

It’s the first time in U.S. history the son of a sitting president will face a jury of his peers in a courtroom.

Prosecutors say Hunter Biden lied when he said he was not on drugs when he filled out a form to buy a gun.

“These forms are filled under the penalty of perjury,” said former federal prosecutor Steve Baric.

Former federal prosecutor Steve Baric told NewsNation he believes Hunter will take the stand.

Potential jurors answered questions about their views on guns, drugs and politics.

President Biden kept his son close this weekend, riding bikes and going to church.

Monday morning, he released a statement saying, “As the president, I don’t and won’t comment on pending federal cases, but as a dad, I have boundless love for my son, confidence in him and respect for his strength.”

“Striking a tone where you’re supportive of your son, but not commenting on the legal side of things is probably the most appropriate under these circumstances,” said Baric.

If convicted, Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison.
