Gregg Jarrett breaks down Hunter Biden's 'crazy' defense

Attorney Greg Jarrett slammed Hunter Biden's "crazy" defense on Fox & Friends Monday morning, saying what would otherwise be a "a slam dunk" trial could face an uphill battle in the progressive state's courtroom.

"The best witness against Hunter Biden is Hunter Biden," Jarrett said. "I mean, [he] wrote a book explaining in detail how he was a drug addict and the exact time that he bought a gun and then allegedly lied about it, so he incriminated himself, and it was incredibly foolish to cash in by peddling a book about your addiction when you know you're under criminal investigation for an addiction related crime."

Jarrett said Hunter's main defense hinges on denial of addiction and rehab, with a backup defense of being too strung out to intend wrongdoing. His defense may also attempt to challenge the Second Amendment, despite his father's advocacy for stricter gun laws.

"His dad is on record railing against the Second Amendment," Jarrett said. "And arguing strict gun laws should always be enforced, except for you know, maybe against my own son. So it's a crazy defense."

The trial stems from federal gun charges brought against him by special counsel David Weiss. Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty to federal gun charges in U.S. District Court for Delaware after Weiss charged him with making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm; making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a licensed firearm dealer; and one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. 

With all counts combined, the total maximum prison time for the charges could be up to 25 years. Each count carries a maximum fine of $250,000 and three years of supervised release.
