White House cancels news briefing after jury finds Hunter Biden guilty on gun charges

After Hunter Biden’s guilty verdict was announced, the White House canceled press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s scheduled briefing and said that President Joe Biden would spend Tuesday evening in Delaware to be with Hunter and other family members.

President Biden was scheduled to give a speech on his administration’s efforts to limit gun violence and toughen enforcement of gun laws at a conference hosted by the Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund in Washington. From there, he’s traveling to Wilmington, Delaware, before he leaves Wednesday for the Group of Seven leaders conference in Italy.
