The White House has not yet addressed the possibility of President Joe Biden pardoning his son Hunter Biden for any federal charges he may face. However, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said last week that “we certainly wouldn’t comment on an ongoing investigation.” It is not clear whether President Biden has considered the possibility of pardoning his son, but it does seem unlikely.
If charges were to be brought against Hunter Biden, it would be up to the Department of Justice to decide whether to prosecute them. If they were to decide to move forward with a criminal prosecution, then the decision of whether to pardon his son would be up to the president. As President Biden has not commented on the topic, his intentions remain unclear.
