Jury begins deliberations in Hunter Biden’s federal gun trial

Judge Maryellen Noreika sent the jury back to begin deliberations in Hunter Biden’s federal gun trial case on Monday afternoon.

Noreika gave the second portion of her final jury instructions to jurors shortly before dismissing them to deliberate.

MSNBC analyst defends Hunter Biden in gun case by citing own alcoholism: ‘Addiction is a disease’

(a choice, a self-inflicted disease that typically causes harm to others – dumbass)

MSNBC political analyst Molly Jong-Fast ran defense for Hunter Biden in a new column and TV appearance by calling addiction a “disease” and not a “moral failing” as his federal gun trial concludes this week.

“Addiction is a disease,” she wrote on MSNBC. “People who struggle with addiction are sick, not bad. Huge swaths of the country are affected by alcohol and drug addiction that affects not just them, but their family members and people who are even tangentially connected to them — the parents, grandparents and kids and brothers and sisters and acquaintances of the addict.”

“The reason why I wanted to come forward and write about this is because, even though I’ve been sober since I was a teenager, I felt that the disease that Hunter Biden has is the same disease that I have,” Jong-Fast said Monday on “Morning Joe.”
