While President Sleepy Joe’s model-citizen son, Hunter Biden, argues that prosecutors should honor a pulled plea deal that would have amounted to a pass for illegal gun charges he faced among other legal issues he is battling, federal prosecutors have cited new evidence supporting why there is no way Biden’s charges should be dismissed.

USA Today reports:

Investigators found cocaine residue on a leather pouch where Hunter Biden stored his gun, federal prosecutors revealed in a court filing as they urged a judge not to dismiss weapons charges against the president’s son.

Snapping back at allegations by Hunter Biden’s lawyers that the gun charges were “trumped up” under political pressure, Justice Department special counsel David Weiss said in a court filing that “the strength of the evidence against him is overwhelming” and stood out “from any other person who was not prosecuted for similar crimes.”

The clash came as the younger Biden battles criminal indictments on both coasts and a slew of Congressional investigations that seek to tie him and his foreign business dealings to President Joe Biden.

Hunter Biden was indicted in his home state of Delaware last September on three federal charges alleging he lied about his drug addiction when buying a gun in 2018. The indictment came after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika rejected a plea deal that would have resolved potential tax and gun indictments in July. Congressional Republicans and former President Donald Trump criticized the scuttled deal as too lenient, leading Biden’s lawyer to argue that the charges were spurred by political pressure.

The younger Biden was indicted last week on federal tax charges in California. The charges arise from his alleged failure to pay $1.4 million in taxes owed over several years. Congress has also turned up the pressure on investigating both Biden’s business dealings while the now-president was serving as VP under Barack Obama, and evidence is mounting that there was definitely money flowing in both Biden’s bank accounts as the result of some shady dealings.

Hunter Biden reportedly faces up to 25 years if found guilty of all the gun charges he’s facing, though as a first time offender—and sitting president’s son—he will likely see little if any jail time.
