Elderly Witness Testifies About Discovering Hunter Biden’s Discarded Gun

In a surprising turn of events during Hunter Biden’s gun trial, an 80-year-old witness named Edward Banner testified Thursday that he found the first son’s gun while rummaging through trash. Banner, who has been collecting recyclables from trash cans since his retirement, said he discovered the silver gun in a trash can outside a Delaware grocery store and took it home.

“I definitely remember finding that,” Banner said of the gun, according to the Washington Post. Although former Delaware state trooper Millard Greer had testified that Banner placed the gun inside a sock at his home, Banner denied this claim. However, he did admit to finding a brown bag containing the gun, which had white powder on it that tested positive for cocaine. Banner denied that any of his family members used cocaine, a drug Hunter Biden has been known to use.

Other witnesses who took the stand on Thursday included Hallie Biden, Hunter Biden’s former girlfriend and the widow of his brother Beau Biden, and police officer Josh Marley. Hallie Biden admitted to throwing away the gun, which Hunter Biden had allegedly purchased illegally by failing to disclose his drug addiction. Marley testified that he searched for the gun in the trash after Hallie Biden called the police but was unable to locate it.

The prosecution is expected to rest its case on Friday after calling two more witnesses, while the defense plans to rest on Monday. It is unclear whether Hunter Biden will testify in his own defense, as defendants rarely do so.
