Hunter Biden is asking the federal appeals court to delay his June trial on gun charges

Hunter Biden is asking a federal appeals court to delay his trial on gun charges, set to begin next month in Delaware.

An attorney for the president’s son filed the request Monday with the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals — two weeks before the trial is set to start in Wilmington. A three-judge panel has already rejected Biden’s request for the judge’s denial of several motions to dismiss the case.

“There is no urgency in having an immediate trial against Robert Hunter Biden, but the district court is moving forward with a trial on June 3, 2024 and imposing all pretrial burdens that come with it, even before this Court has granted its mandate to exercise jurisdiction to give back. to court,” Biden attorney Abbe Lowell wrote in the lawsuit on Monday.

At the same time, he asked the full bench of the 3rd Circuit to reconsider Biden’s previous appeal regarding motions to dismiss the indictment on several grounds.

Biden was indicted in September on federal charges that he had a gun when he used narcotics, including allegations that he filed a form falsely stating he did not use illegal drugs when he bought the revolver in 2018. He pleaded not guilty in October.

In a separate case, Biden is facing federal tax charges. That case will go to trial on June 20 in California. Biden has also denied guilt on these charges.

Both cases are being prosecuted by Special Counsel David Weiss, who was appointed by President Donald Trump as U.S. attorney for Delaware. Attorney General Merrick Garland later appointed Weiss to his current position.
