House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries defends Biden's comment that Hunter did 'nothing wrong

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., on Sunday defended President Biden's past comment that his son, Hunter Biden, "did nothing wrong." 

Jeffries' remarks came a day before the scheduled beginning of jury selection in the federal gun case against Hunter – and just days after former President Trump, President Biden's main election opponent, was convicted on 34 counts following the hush-money trial brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. 

"President Biden commented as a loving father, as I would hope any loving father would do. Hunter Biden, of course, is entitled, as was Donald Trump, to the presumption of innocence and to a trial by a jury of his peers," Jeffries said during an appearance on NBC’s "Meet the Press." "And this Justice Department is going to proceed in that fashion, present the facts and the law and then we’ll all have to wait for a determination that is made by a jury as to Hunter Biden’s guilt or innocence."
