He faces a maximum of 25 years in prison for the charges.
“This was an extraordinary scene that unfolded in the courthouse behind me, the son of a sitting president facing felony gun charges,” Herridge stated.
“As Hunter Biden entered the courtroom on the second floor he passed by me, I was no more than about five feet away, and there was a sense of nervous energy, a nervous smile, a sense of real apprehension as we headed into the proceeding.”
“It lasted about 20 minutes. The federal judge asked the president’s son if he understood the charges, the potential serious penalties and that he had a right to remain silent.”
“And to each he responded with a strong and soft voice, ‘Yes, your Honor,’” Herridge added.
“And when it came time to enter the plea that was done by his attorney, Abbe Lowell, who said, Mr. Biden pleads not guilty to the three charges.” (Trending: As Fauci’s Net Worth Surpasses $11 Million, Americans Take A Closer Look At His Disturbing Lies)
“What’s striking to me is that just two months ago, Hunter Biden entered this courthouse with the degree of optimism and a lot of confidence,” she continued.
“But as we saw that plea deal collapse, and I was inside that courtroom, what we see now is that the chapter is not closing for Hunter Biden or for his family, or for his father, the president,” Herridge concluded.
