Hunter Biden just got some bad news…and soon enough he might be stuck defending himself in court. Biden’s defense lawyer in his gun charges case has just abruptly quit.
The Hunter Biden gun charge case has been making news for weeks now, as a federal indictment was brought against him by Special Counsel David Weiss. Recently, however, Richard Jones, the attorney representing Hunter in his case abruptly withdrew from it – leaving many people asking what is going on and who is paying for all these lawyers?

Recently, Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty to three counts of gun-related charges in Delaware court. These charges include False Statement in Purchase of a Firearm, False Statement Related to Information Required to be Kept By Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer, and Possession of a Firearm by a Person who is an Unlawful User of or Addicted to a Controlled Substance.
If convicted on all three counts he could face up to 25 years in prison and fines up to $250,000.
Additionally, Special Counsel Dave Weiss withdrew tax-related charges against Hunter which were previously filed in Delaware but believed that venue lies either in California or DC instead. However, due to an impasse while plea negotiations have been ongoing between parties involved it looks like this case may be headed for trial instead.
This isn’t the first time one of Hunter’s legal team has abruptly quit either; back in 2019 when he blew off a court hearing over child support payments Dustin McDaniel suddenly dropped out during that Arkansas courtroom session too.
With news that each lawyer can cost up to $1 million per month some are wondering how exactly all these attorneys are getting paid? Well there hasn’t been any confirmation yet from any sources however, some speculate that Joe Biden may be footing the bill with his own finances due to his extensive wealth – though this still remains unconfirmed at this time.
