Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) predicted this week that President Joe Biden is going to pardon his son Hunter Biden this December regardless of the outcome of the presidential election in November.
Cruz made the prediction during the most recent broadcast of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson as Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty this week in a California federal court to nine criminal counts related to alleged tax crimes. Hunter Biden also faces federal gun charges, which he already pleaded not guilty to late last year.
“My prediction is in December of 2024, Joe Biden will pardon Hunter Biden,” Cruz said. “Win or lose. If Biden were to win, I think he’ll delay the pardon until right before Hunter goes to jail. But if Biden is losing, I’d put the odds at 95% that in December of this year, if Biden has just lost the general election, that he pardons his son, and he gives him a scot free get-out-of-jail pass.”
“And so, understand Hunter’s legal strategy is delay 11 months, don’t go to jail for 11 months, and then daddy gives you a get-out-of-jail free card — and it’s why the House needs to keep their eye on the ball and bring Hunter for the public hearing,” he continued.
I predict that Joe Biden will pardon Hunter Biden.
If Biden wins in 2024, I believe Hunter will be pardoned right before he goes to jail.

Cruz also addressed Hunter Biden getting up and leaving a U.S. House hearing this week during the middle of the hearing, saying that the president’s son showed up to show his defiance to lawmakers.
“Hunter Biden didn’t show up just to say screw you to the Congress, but to say screw you to the American people, that I’m the son of the President, I can do whatever I want,” Cruz said. “And he knows the Biden Department of Justice, they’re going to be no consequences.”
“The arrogant contempt, and by the way, it’s consistent,” he continued. “It is Hunter Biden’s approach. It is Fauci’s approach. It is Merrick Garland’s approach; it is Alejandro Mayorkas’ approach. It is Joe Biden’s approach.”
