Hunter Biden pleads not guilty to tax charges at arraignment

Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty on Thursday to nine tax charges that included felonies and misdemeanors at a courthouse in Los Angeles, California.

Biden entered the plea himself rather than having his lawyers do it.

His appearance came one day after he appeared on Capitol Hill to make a statement as lawmakers debated whether to hold him in contempt for defying a subpoena in December.

Biden said he would only testify publicly, not behind closed doors, because he feared Republicans could selectively leak information that would be damaging to himself or his father, the president.

But that's not a determination he gets to make.

Seems like he's counting on his dad pardoning him on the contempt charges if the DOJ will even prosecute him. Biden has said he won't pardon Hunter, but since when doesn't he change his story when his family is concerned?
