Hallie Biden Set To Testify In Hunter Biden's Firearm Trial

 June 4, 2024

Hallie Biden, the widow of Hunter Biden's brother and his ex, will testify about using crack with Hunter, according to prosecutor Derek Hines.

Hunter Biden is currently facing charges linked to misleading statements regarding a gun purchase and possession while reportedly addicted to crack cocaine.

Breitbart News reported that Hunter Biden, son of U.S. President Joe Biden, has been indicted on several counts, including making a false statement during the purchase of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a person unlawfully using controlled substances, and supplying false information required by federal firearms dealers.

The trial, which has drawn widespread media attention, is consequential not only for its high-profile defendant but also for the implications it may have on public and legal perspectives on substance abuse and firearm possession.

Substance Use and Legal Implications

Court documents reveal that Hunter Biden was involved with crack cocaine during the period he purchased a handgun, a Colt Cobra .38. This detail emerged through evidence found on a laptop Hunter Biden reportedly abandoned.

This case has also highlighted the actions of Hallie Biden, Hunter’s former partner and the widow of his late brother Beau Biden, who discovered and disposed of the firearm in a grocery store trash bin, fearing potential misuse amid Hunter's struggle with substance abuse.

The prosecution, led by Prosecutor Derek Hines, considers the testimonies from Hallie Biden and others vital to their case. Hines has stated that while Hallie’s testimony might be embarrassing, it is essential for their argument.

In addition to Hallie Biden, the trial witnesses include Gordon Cleveland, who sold the firearm to Hunter Biden, and Zoe Kestan, another associate of Hunter's. Kathleen Buhle, Hunter’s ex-wife who reportedly never used narcotics, will also take the stand without an immunity deal, further extending the array of personal and intimate testimonies to be heard.

Secret Service Alleged Involvement

One controversial aspect of the case involves the alleged interference by the Secret Service. Reports suggest that agents might have intervened in the investigating process, particularly concerning the retrieval and handling of the gun disposed of by Hallie Biden. This element adds another layer of intrigue and complexity to the proceedings.

Derek Hines emphasized the pivotal role Hallie played in the brief possession period of the firearm by Hunter Biden, stating, "The only reason he had the gun for 11 days is because Hallie took it from him."

Thus far, the courtroom settings have been stringently controlled, with prohibitions on TV, audio, and Slack messaging capturing the proceedings, thus spotlighting traditional court reporting methods.


As the trial progresses, it remains a key point of public and media attention, highlighting the complex interplay of personal, legal, and familial issues. The involvement of family members and close associates in the testimonies highlights the personal impact of legal proceedings related to substance misuse, which has significantly affected the Biden family.

The trial illustrates the intersection of substance abuse with legal challenges, particularly around gun ownership and required legal disclosures, showcasing the broader societal struggles with substance abuse and legal integrity.
