US President Joe Biden´s son Hunter asked a judge on Wednesday to issue a subpoena to Donald Trump, claiming an investigation that led to gun charges against him was politically motivated.

Hunter Biden, 53, in a filing with a US District Court in Delaware, is seeking documents and records from Trump, his former attorney general Bill Barr, former acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen and former acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue.Hunter Biden pleaded not guilty last month to three felony charges stemming from his purchase of a .38-caliber Colt Cobra revolver in 2018 when, by his own admission, he was addicted to drugs.He is charged with illegally possessing the handgun and two counts of making false statements for claiming on forms required for the gun purchase that he was not using drugs at the time.In the court filing seeking subpoenas, his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said there was evidence Trump had applied “incessant, improper, and partisan pressure” on Barr and the other top Justice Department officials to investigate Hunter. “Mr Trump has made a plethora of concerning public statements calling for an investigation or possible prosecution of Mr Biden, both while in office and since leaving,” Lowell said.He cited numerous tweets by Trump and a passage from a recent book by Barr, who served as attorney general under the former Republican president until resigning in December 2020. In the book, Barr says Trump asked him in October 2020 about the status of an investigation into Hunter Biden.
