Opening statements in Hunter Biden’s criminal trial kicked off on Tuesday with the jury hearing in Hunter’s own words, via a recording played by the prosecutor, about his drug addiction, reported USA Today:

“WILMINGTON, Del – Hunter Biden did not take the stand, but the jury heard him loud and clear.

“They listened to a recording of the president’s son as he narrated an unvarnished account of his life as an alcoholic and a drug addict.

“‘I’ve bought crack cocaine on the streets of Washington, D.C. and cooked up my own inside a hotel bungalow in Los Angeles,’ Biden’s voice filled a courtroom in Delaware on Tuesday, where he is being tried on federal firearms charges. ‘I’ve been so desperate for a drink that I couldn’t make the one-block walk between a liquor store and my apartment without uncapping the bottle to take a swig.’

“But it was precisely his brutal honesty which was being used to prove him a liar by federal prosecutor Derek Hines, who played an excerpt from Biden’s audiobook memoir, Beautiful Things. The book is written and narrated by Biden himself.

“Hines was making the case that Biden lied on a federal background form when he bought a gun in 2018 by not checking the box asking if he was ‘addicted to or an unlawful user of controlled substances.’ The book, published in 2021, details his struggle over a four-year period of ‘active addiction,’ after his brother Beau Biden’s death of cancer, his failed 24-year marriage, and his romantic relationship with Beau’s widow.
