Hunter Biden sounds off on ‘political weaponization’ of his addiction: ‘All out annihilation of my reputation’

Hunter Biden called out a “political weaponization” of his addiction on Thursday in an op-ed for USA Today and argued that his mistakes have become “fodder for a vile and sustained disinformation campaign” against President Biden.

As Biden reflected on his troubles with addiction, he said his situation was different because he is the president’s son.

“My struggles and my mistakes have been fodder for a vile and sustained disinformation campaign against him, and an all-out annihilation of my reputation through high-pitched but fruitless congressional investigations and, more recently, criminal charges for possessing an unloaded gun for 11 days five years ago – charges that appear to be the first-ever of their kind brought in the history of Delaware,” he wrote.

Biden pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in a Delaware District Court in October.
