Hunter Biden's Mugshot Hidden Away by Joe Biden's Justice Department

 September 20, 2023

In a revelation that has raised eyebrows, federal authorities reportedly captured Hunter Biden's mugshot in July. However, this photograph remains concealed, shielded by the Justice Department's policy. This development has sparked a debate on transparency and the alleged double standards in the treatment of political figures.

The Mugshot That Never Saw the Light

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was processed at a Delaware courthouse by the U.S. Marshals Service in July. According to his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, Hunter underwent "the usual procedures," which included fingerprinting and having his photograph taken.

Despite this, the Department of Justice has not released the mugshot, citing a policy that "prohibits my office from providing photographs of defendants prosecuted in federal court," as stated by Kim Reeves, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware.

The Plea Deal That Collapsed

Hunter Biden was in court for a "sweetheart" plea deal that eventually fell apart. The deal would have allowed him to plead guilty for not paying taxes on more than $1.5 million in income for the years 2017 and 2018. He would have received probation instead of jail time.

However, the deal was withdrawn after scrutiny from the judge, and Hunter now faces up to 25 years in prison and a $750,000 fine if convicted.

The Quest for Transparency

Fox News's Jesse Watters has submitted a Freedom of Information request to release Hunter Biden's mugshot. He questioned why the photo remains concealed, stating, "In light of transparency, this mugshot must be released." This raises a pertinent question: What is so special about this mugshot that it remains hidden from the public eye?

The Double Standard

For our readers who have little love for Hunter Biden, this incident may appear as a glaring example of double standards, especially when compared to the scrutiny faced by figures associated with the Trump administration. The concealment of Hunter's mugshot, while not illegal, certainly raises questions about the impartiality of the Justice Department under the Biden administration.


The concealment of Hunter Biden's mugshot by the Department of Justice has ignited a debate on transparency and double standards in the political landscape. As the case unfolds, it remains to be seen whether the photograph will ever be released, and what implications this could have for public trust in the justice system.

"In light of transparency, this mugshot must be released."
