After President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, received a guilty verdict in his gun-related case in Delaware, Democratic lawmakers are trying to dismiss concerns regarding the nation’s justice system. According to them, Hunter’s conviction is proof that the nation’s justice system remains solid.

Per Fox News, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) opined, “That is not the result of a sham process or some vast conspiracy by the Biden administration. That is the result of the truth. And these attacks on our justice system have to come to a stop.”

Slamming attacks on the nation’s justice system from the right, the Democrat lawmaker added, “They are dangerous. They are irresponsible. They are nothing but false conspiracy theories being pushed to try and excuse the actions of the former president.”

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) repeated the same sentiments, noting that he had “not heard a single Democrat anywhere in the country cry fraud, cry, fixed, cry, rigged, cry, kangaroo court or any of the many epithets that our colleagues have” since Hunter’s guilty verdict came in.

“Why? We believe in the rule of law. We believe in the justice system and we stand by it,” he added.

Despite the attempts to restore public confidence in the U.S. justice system, there might still be some smoke on the mountain, as a former business associate of Hunter told Fox News that the case is “clearly more political gamesmanship with DOJ” and “a distraction from the main event with their influence peddling.”

“I am convinced that the entire Justice System is just an institution of people with agendas; not an institution of laws,” he continued.

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign has also pointed out that the guilty verdict is a distraction from the “real crimes” of the Biden family.

In a statement reacting to the conviction, the campaign national press secretary Karoline Leavitt said, “This trial has been nothing more than a distraction from the real crimes of the Biden Crime Family, which has raked in tens of millions of dollars from China, Russia and Ukraine.”

“Crooked Joe Biden’s reign over the Biden Family Criminal Empire is all coming to an end on November 5th, and never again will a Biden sell government access for personal profit,” she added.
