The alleged “weaponization” of the legal system in the United States and the conviction of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden on felony gun charges

For former United States President Donald Trump and his supporters, the trials he has faced, and especially his recent conviction on 34 felony charges in New York City, are politically motivated: "Can a President order his Department of Justice to indict an opponent just prior to an election?" (all-caps removed). But now President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden has been convicted on three felony charges for federal gun violations. As one joke I saw put it, President Biden is apparently not very good at "weaponizing" the legal system. It's also a nice irony that Trump and his "Second Amendment" supporters got the Hunter Biden conviction they wanted – but on gun charges. (Andrew Shields, #111Words, 12 June 2024)
