George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley had some dire news for first son Hunter Biden following Tuesday’s conviction in Delaware on federal firearms charges.

Biden was found guilty on three felony counts in relation to the 2018 purchase of a .38-caliber revolver on Tuesday after the jury deliberated for just over three hours. Turley mentioned that a criminal referral for perjury by the House of Representatives, along with the tax case involving President Joe Biden’s son, is currently pending.

“His counsel has got to refocus on that tax case. They are going into that case now with a convicted felon,” Turley told Fox News “Faulkner Focus” host Harris Faulkner. “Now, these are very different types of claims, but there is a third front developing. Congress just referred, what I consider to be a very strong case, for a perjury investigation of Hunter Biden after his testimony before Congress.”

“Now the expectation is that Garland is going to basically scuttle that referral, but the problem is that the House seems to have Hunter Biden dead [to] rights… on those perjury claims,” Turley continued. “It is hard to see how what he said before Congress was true. It is a much more serious offense. It is currently sitting on the desk of Merrick Garland.” Turley noted that the tax case carried “much more serious” charges, including ties to the Biden family’s business dealings.

Earlier Tuesday, Turley said that an effort by Biden’s attorneys to secure “nullification” of the felony charges was “overcome” by the jurors. “This was a very fair judge in my view, uh, she ruled for the defense and for the prosecutors on different issues. She went right down the middle of the road, and I think in the end, justice was done here,” Turley told Faulkner about United States District Judge Maryellen Noreika of the District of Delaware after the Fox News host contrasted the judge’s handling of the Biden case with New York Judge Juan Merchan’s handling of Trump’s business documents case. “This jury was able to overcome a nullification strategy.”

“Part of the problem was that Abbe Lowell, the defense attorney, put forward a bunch of defenses in the opening statement that collapsed within 48 hours,” Turley continued. “I mean, the prosecutors did an extraordinarily good job here. They were focused, they were disciplined, and they methodically took apart each of these defenses in front of the jury and when you pursue nullification strategy, it can go too far sometimes. It can make the jury feel like they are being treated as chumps and I think that here, the jury followed instructions and did their duty.”

Republican lawmakers claimed late last month that Hunter Biden lied to Congress during his recent deposition following the House Ways and Means Committee’s vote to release IRS whistleblower records. “Hunter Biden has shown once again he believes there are two systems of justice in this country — one for his family, and one for everyone else,” House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) said in a statement. “Not only did Hunter Biden refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he then came before Congress and lied.”

“Lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people expect the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States,” Smith said.
