Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) admitted on Sunday that the latest charges against Hunter Biden are “legally justified”.

Hunter Biden was charged with nine new tax charges last week, including three felonies and six misdeameanours. The lastest charges come in addition to his previous indictment for tax-related misdeameanors and failed plea deal over firearm charges filed earlier this year.

Murphy said that he looks forward to seeing the case against Hunter Biden continue, but noted that “The American people understand that Hunter Biden is not going to be on the ballot next fall — that Joe Biden is going to be on the ballot.”

Murphy added, “I think Hunter Biden is going to be held accountable in court for any violations of the law that he’s committed, and the American public is gonna get the chance to watch that play out in real-time.”

“I think this is a very troubled individual who has done things that are worthy of prosecution,” Murphy told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

Murphy tried to deflect the attention towards Donald Trump, claiming that the Trump family profited off of the Trump presidency.

“I think the American public are going to be very concerned about what has happened inside the Trump family since Donald Trump left the White House,” Murphy said.
