CNN reported on Tuesday that authorities fingerprinted and photographed Hunter Biden when he appeared in court after his “sweetheart” plea deal fell through.
Kim Reeves, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, said mugshots were hidden because Justice Department policy “prohibits my office from providing photos of defendants charged in federal court.” He told Newsweek magazine that it remained as it was.
FOX News’ Jesse Watters said Tuesday. It has been submitted Freedom of Information request seeking release of mug shot. He also questioned why the photos were kept private.
“It turns out Hunter Biden has a mug shot,” Watters said. “So what’s so special about the mug shot that they don’t want us to see? Did he smile? Did he look defiant? Considering transparency, this mug shot must be made public. No need.”
“Sources say mugshots of federal inmates are rarely released to the public, and only in the case of a federal inmate who escapes, so the likelihood of a leak is extremely low.” he said.
