Hunter Biden Juror Reveals Texts That Led to Conviction

Text messages between Hunter Biden and his sister-in-law played a crucial role in his conviction, according to a juror.

Hunter Biden was found guilty on Tuesday of three felony charges: lying about his drug use when purchasing a firearm in 2018, making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm, making a false statement related to information required by a federally licensed firearms dealer, and possession of a firearm by an unlawful user or addict to a controlled substance, as reported by the New York Post.

A juror who spoke to the New York Post indicated that messages between Hunter Biden and Hallie Biden, the wife of his late brother Beau Biden with whom Hunter had a relationship, were significant in illustrating Hunter Biden’s state at the time he bought the gun.

“[The text messages showed], in my opinion, he was training to get drugs,” said a juror described by the Post as a 51-year-old black woman from upper Delaware.

The Post reported that Hallie Biden, during her testimony, was shown a text from October 13, 2018, one day after Hunter Biden purchased the gun. The text mentioned he was in a car waiting for a dealer named Mookie.

Hallie Biden testified that she believed the text meant “that he was buying crack cocaine.”

A text from Hunter Biden the following day stated he was smoking crack and sleeping in a car.

Hunter Biden “looks kind of defeated. He looks kind of helpless to me,” the juror said.

“I think he just needs to get away somewhere and get some real rehab, if he hasn’t. Hopefully he’s still not using,” she added.

According to the Post, although the verdict was reached quickly on Tuesday, that was not the case on Monday after an informal vote, according to another juror.

That juror mentioned that five jury members changed their minds overnight.

The final juror was initially unsure whether Hunter Biden was using crack when he bought the gun but eventually reviewed the evidence and changed her mind.

The upper Delaware juror noted that the panel “worked together really well.”

“I was expecting all of us to be at each other’s throats, you know, because of who his father is and how the political climate is in this country,” she said.

Juror 10 told CNN that the Biden family was not a factor during deliberations.

The jury focused on the evidence, not Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, during their discussions, the juror explained.

“We didn’t use Jill. We didn’t use President Biden,” he said, noting that Joe Biden’s “name was only brought up once during the trial.”

“No politics came into play, and politics was not even spoken about,” the juror said.

“I really don’t think that Hunter belongs in jail,” the juror added. Although Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $750,000, as a first-time offender, the sentence is likely to be less severe.

CNN also reported that three jurors said, “They believed they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty.”
