The start of the criminal tax trial for President Joe Biden’s son was postponed until June 5, as Hunter Biden’s legal team requested, following conflicts with a separate criminal trial in Delaware. Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, argued that the start of this trial on criminal gun charges in Delaware might have created an overlap with pretrial deadlines in the criminal tax case.

Besides, Lowell also said in court filings that he has been on two simultaneous appeals after Scarsi and the judge in Delaware refused to dismiss the criminal indictments. Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty to the charges in both criminal cases.

Next month, Hunter Biden is bound to become the first child of a sitting president to go on trial in a felony case. The Department of Justice charged him back in December with failing to pay $1.4 million in taxes between 2016 and 2019, while allegedly spending millions of dollars on drugs, escorts, exotic cars, and many other big-ticket items. He is also bound to face 17 years in prison if convicted.

Hunter Biden also faces three felonies in Delaware. They’re all related to lying about his use of illegal drugs when he bought a firearm in 2018. He faces up to 25 years on gun charges. The two trials take place as Joe Biden is currently fighting to remain in the White House.
