The White House did not rule out President Joe Biden potentially reducing any prison sentence for his son, Hunter Biden, who was found guilty of lying about his drug use when buying a gun in 2018.

When asked about a possible commutation, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said she had no new information beyond what the president previously stated, emphasizing that Biden has said he won’t pardon his son.

Presidents can commute sentences for federal crimes, lessening the punishment without removing the conviction.

This case highlights the difficult position President Biden is in, balancing his role as a father and a leader.
