Three jurors speak to CNN after Hunter Biden trial [View all]



Three jurors who spoke to CNN after they reached a guilty verdict said that they believed they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty — but said that they question whether the criminal case ever should have been brought against the president’s son.

The case “seemed like a waste of taxpayer dollars,” one female juror told CNN.

Another male juror said that the process was “a little but frustrating because it felt like we couldn’t get the full story.”

End snip

Seems like the appeal will be interesting.

My wish is that the MEdia will move on now, but it seems we are all Hunter all day all week now.
