Judge BLOCKS Key Witness – Biden’s Son HIT Hard!

**On June 2, the night before jury selection began, Judge Maryellen Noreika issued two rulings that could affect Hunter Biden’s defense in his gun trial.**

Hunter Biden, the president’s controversial son, has pleaded not guilty to three federal gun charges related to his 2018 purchase of a Colt Cobra revolver. The charges include making a false statement on Form 4473, making a false statement to purchase the gun, and being unlawfully in possession of a firearm as someone using or addicted to a controlled substance. These charges came after an indictment by Special Counsel David Weiss.

**In a move that’s sure to rattle Hunter Biden’s defense team, Judge Noreika sided with the prosecution, blocking testimony from one of Biden’s expert witnesses. This psychiatrist, based at Columbia University, was set to testify that Hunter Biden was unaware he was addicted to cocaine when he bought the gun in 2018.**

Noreika wrote that the “inadequacy of Defendant’s expert disclosure” left the government “in the dark as to what his opinions” would be, which means the government would not be able to prepare adequately for the trial. So, Hunter’s defense loses a potentially critical piece of their argument right out of the gate.

**But that’s not all. Judge Noreika also rejected Hunter Biden’s attorneys’ request to use a version of the 2018 federal firearms form that was altered by a gun store employee in 2021. The defense argued that this altered form was essential exculpatory evidence that could undermine the credibility of the gun store employees scheduled to testify for the prosecution.**

In her ruling, Noreika stated that using the altered form could mislead the jury, ruling it “irrelevant and inadmissible.” She didn’t hold back, accusing Hunter Biden’s attorneys of pushing “unsupported rhetoric” and “conspiratorial theories” about the gun store employees.

**So, it seems the jury will only see the original ATF Form 4473, where Hunter Biden allegedly lied about his drug use. According to the prosecution, when Biden purchased the gun, he was addicted to crack cocaine, a fact he himself admits in his memoir.**

**This ruling by Judge Noreika is a significant blow to Hunter Biden’s defense. It underscores the seriousness with which the court is treating these charges and highlights the challenges Biden’s legal team faces in defending their client.**

As the trial moves forward, these pre-trial decisions will undoubtedly shape the narrative and the strategies of both the defense and the prosecution. For a case already steeped in political intrigue and public scrutiny, these developments add another layer of complexity.

**This is more than just a legal battle; it’s a political lightning rod. The decisions made in this trial will resonate far beyond the courtroom, impacting public opinion and possibly even the political landscape as we head into an election year.**

Stay tuned, folks. The stakes are high, and the drama is just beginning.
