DOJ Releases Text Messages That Look Bad For Hunter Biden

While President Joe Biden is vehemently anti-gun, Hunter was more than ready to carry a firearm in violation of federal law. Allegedly.

Currently, he's facing charges regarding his purchase of a firearm while apparently being 98 percent made up of crack cocaine. That is a federal crime, and there's been ample evidence to show that he is, in fact, guilty of this crime.


After a sweetheart plea deal fell apart, Hunter faced a far more real prosecution, and based on what the Department of Justice released, it's not looking good for him.

Texts messages and photos from Hunter Biden’s iPhone around the time he purchased a gun in October 2018 indicate he was addicted to drugs, according to a Tuesday court filing by the Department of Justice.

Biden is currently being prosecuted for allegedly lying about his illicit drug use on a federal form when buying the firearm.

The 10-page DOJ court filing contained pictures and text messages from the time period, both before and after Biden’s gun purchase, showing he was addicted to drugs.


“On October 13, 2018, and October 14, 2018 (the day after and two days after he purchased the firearm), the defendant messaged his girlfriend about meeting a drug dealer and smoking crack,” the DOJ said.

“For example on October 13, 2018, the defendant messaged her and stated, ‘… I’m now off MD Av behind blue rocks stadium waiting for a drug dealer named Mookie.'”

There is a Blue Rocks stadium in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden’s hometown.

In another text on Oct. 14, 2018, Biden wrote, “I was sleeping on a car smoking crack on 4th Street and Rodney,” which are cross-streets in Wilmington.

So the text messages make it pretty clear he was using drugs around the time he purchased the firearm.

That is a crime. Whether it should be or not is a matter of debate, and I can make the case that it shouldn't be.

It doesn't matter, though, because it is.

Interestingly, the text messages also cover the point in time when Hallie Biden, Beau's widow and Hunter's then girlfriend, tossed his gun in a trash can.


In another he wrote, “Who in their right mind would trust you would help me get sober?” and referenced an encounter he had with the “f***king FBI” regarding the gun.

Hallie had discarded the gun that day, which was later recovered by police.

Hunter texted her that his gun had been in a “locked car on another property.”

Hallie answered, “I’m sorry, I just want you to be safe. That was not safe,” and then refuted him, texting that the car “was open unlocked and windows down and the kids search your car.”

Additional text messages make it clear that Hunter knew he was addicted to drugs, which means he can't even play the whole "I thought that part on the paperwork was for addicts and I didn't think I was addicted" card.

It wouldn't have worked because the question on the Form 4473 is pretty clear, but I could see him try that.

Meanwhile, Hunter's father is trying to use what happened in Kansas City to justify gun control as we learn just how little existing laws mattered to his own son.

Rules for thee but not for me, apparently.
