Many have wondered when Hunter Biden would have his mugshot taken. Well, CNN reported that the first son’s mugshot was taken in July 2023, but has not been released publicly. This demonstrates the double standard of the Justice Department, considering that prosecutors had no trouble in releasing former President Donald Trump’s mugshot to the public in August 2023.
CNN reported that Hunter was “previously fingerprinted and had his mug shot taken when he was in court in July.”
CNN’s article reported that President Joe Biden’s son plans to plead not guilty to federal gun charges relating to false statements he made on a federal firearms form and possessing a firearm despite being an alcoholic and a drug user.
“Hunter Biden was previously fingerprinted and had his mug shot taken when he was in court in July when his plea deal collapsed. Because it was in federal court, the photo was not made public,” the outlet reported.
Fox News host Jesse Watters recently remarked on Hunter’s yet-to-be-released mugshot, as The Post Millennial reported. The host noted that “federal inmates rarely have their mugshots released to the public. Only in cases where the federal inmate escapes, and a leak would be very unlikely.”
“What is so special about a mugshot that they don’t want us to see? Did he smile? Did he look defiant? You know, in light of transparency, this mugshot must be released,” Watters asked.

Biden was recently indicted on federal gun charges in Delaware after his plea deal, which would have prevented him from going to jail, was struck down by U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika.
President Joe Biden’s son is being accused of lying on a background check form from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to purchase a firearm, claiming he was not a drug user when, it turns out, the opposite is true as he revealed in his memoir, “Beautiful Things.”
“I wasn’t a sloppy or mean drunk; I wasn’t an addled or dangerous crackhead. Whether it’s genetics or psychology, I have the capacity and tenacity to use to excess, and a single-minded unwillingness to quit. That makes addiction easy rather than hard,” Hunter wrote in his memoir.
