Hunter Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen entered the federal courthouse in Wilmington, Delaware, on Tuesday, ahead of opening statements in his federal criminal firearms case.

A jury was seated in Hunter’s trial Monday and opening statements began Tuesday morning.

By late Monday afternoon, a jury of six men and six women had been chosen to oversee the case and decide Hunter Biden’s fate. Of the twelve panelists and four alternates, nine are African American, and all four alternates are women.

Hunter held his wife’s hand as he entered court Tuesday. His lawyers stayed behind.

Prosecutors blasted Hunter Biden in their opening statements on the first day of the federal gun trial.

“It doesn’t matter who you are or what your name is,” prosecutor Derek Hines said Tuesday. “No one is above the law.”

In September, Hunter Biden was indicted on federal weapons charges. He was indicted in a Delaware court on three counts related to his possession of a firearm while on drugs.

Hunter pleaded not guilty to all three gun crimes in October.

According to text messages, Hunter Biden made a drug deal with ‘Mookie’ a day after illegally purchasing his gun on October 12, 2018.

A few days later he went on a crack-smoking bender and passed out in his car.

The Gateway Pundit reported in October 2020 that Hunter’s then-lover and late brother’s widow Hallie Biden threw the gun in the trash. Hunter admitted this in an online conversation with his family when they accused him of inappropriate behavior in the presence of a child.

Prosecutors told the court Tuesday that Hunter Biden bought the firearm while smoking crack every 15 minutes.

NBC News reported:

During opening statements, prosecutor Derek Hines told jurors they would hear from a witness who was romantically involved with Hunter and saw him smoking crack “every 15 minutes.” Her name is Zoe Kestan, Hines said.

Here’s how she was identified in the preliminary files:

“Witness 2 previously had a romantic relationship with the suspect between approximately December 2017 and October 2018. During their relationship, Witness 2 observed the suspect using crack cocaine frequently – every 20 minutes except when he was sleeping. Witness 2 visited the suspect in Massachusetts while he was in rehab in the fall of 2018 (after his gun possession) and for three days she saw the suspect smoking crack cocaine every 20 minutes.

If convicted of tax-related charges, Hunter Biden faces up to 17 years in prison.
