A CBS News reporter noted Hunter Biden exuded “nervous energy” as he entered a federal courthouse for arraignment on Tuesday.
Hunter Biden entered a not guilty plea in a federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, to three counts surrounding the purchase of a revolver.
Biden was indicted on Sept. 14 by a federal grand jury on charges of illegally possessing a firearm while using illegal drugs, and for making false statements in the course of purchasing the firearm.
“This was an extraordinary scene that unfolded in the courthouse behind me, the son of a sitting president facing felony gun charges,” CBS Senior Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge said.
“As Hunter Biden entered the courtroom on the second floor he passed by me, I was no more than about five feet away, and there was a sense of nervous energy, a nervous smile, a sense of real apprehension as we headed into the proceeding.”
“It lasted about 20 minutes. The federal judge asked the president’s son if he understood the charges, the potential serious penalties and that he had a right to remain silent, and to each he responded with a strong and soft voice, ‘Yes, your Honor,’” Herridge continued.
“And when it came time to enter the plea that was done by his attorney, Abbe Lowell, who said, Mr. Biden pleads not guilty to the three charges.”
