Special Counsel David Weiss’ office shredded President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in a court filing on Tuesday for attempting to get the felony gun charges he faces dismissed.

The filing came in response to a motion that Biden’s team filed last month that claimed he faced a “selective and vindictive prosecution” that was politically motivated.

“The charges in this case are not trumped up or because of former President Trump — they are instead a result of the defendant’s own choices and were brought in spite of, not because of, any outside noise made by politicians,” Weiss wrote in the filing this week.

Hunter Biden’s team argued that Weiss “buckled” under political pressure from “former President Trump (who appointed Mr. Weiss), extremist House Republicans, and the far-right media.”

Weiss fired back in his filing, saying that Hunter Biden produces no evidence to support his allegation that the Executive Branch, led by his father, President Biden, and its Justice Department, led by the Attorney General appointed by his father, authorized prosecution by the U.S. Attorney and Special Counsel of their choosing for an “improper political purpose.”

Weiss called Hunter Biden’s attempts to dismiss the charges as “absurd,” saying that his motion to dismiss was “stunningly weak and wholly unsupported by facts and law.”

The special counsel noted that Hunter Biden helped prosecutors in their case against him by giving them evidence after he knew that he was under investigation.

“After the defendant announced his awareness of a federal investigation of him in 2020, the defendant chose to author and sell a book in 2021 in which he made countless incriminating statements about his years-long drug usage, including during the time period he purchased and possessed the gun,” Weiss wrote.

Weiss went even further, noting that investigators “literally found drugs” on the pouch where Hunter Biden kept his gun.

“In 2023, FBI investigators pulled sealed evidence from the state police vault to take photographs of the defendant’s firearm,” Weiss said. “After opening the evidence, FBI investigators observed a white powdery substance on the defendant’s brown leather pouch that had held the defendant’s firearm in October 2018. Based on their training and experience, investigators believed that this substance was likely cocaine and that this evidence would corroborate the messages that investigators had obtained which showed the defendant buying and using drugs in October 2018. An FBI chemist subsequently analyzed the residue and determined that it was cocaine. To be clear, investigators literally found drugs on the pouch where the defendant had kept his gun.”
