In Gun Case, Hunter Biden’s Lawyers Seek to Subpoena Donald Trump
New court filing aims to uncover evidence of probe's political direction
Lawyers for Hunter Biden have asked a federal court in Delaware to approve subpoenas for former president Donald Trump, his former attorney general William Barr and other former senior Justice Department officials, as Biden fights federal gun charges by seeking to show the probe was politically motivated.
