Bidenís Son Hunter Discharged From Navy Reserve After Failing Cocaine Test

WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended.

Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43 when he was to be commissioned—he needed a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to people familiar with the matter. Military officials say such drug waivers aren’t uncommon.

Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy. In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.

I suspect he was trying to burnish his “credentials” for future political purposes instead of looking for a future military pension.

Oh this won’t effect his political future. Are you kidding, liberals will flock to the polls to vote for a crack head. They did for Obama.

Let's be honest (cause I'm one of them).

Us inbred Irish are definitely prone to addictive disorders.

That is a different son, Beau Biden, currently Attorney General of Delaware. He was in the JAG corps in Iraq.

I p**ed in the bottle, starting in Vietnam until 2010, active & reserve. Locking down the unit for urinalysis wastes half a day minimum, 100% tested or 10% monthly, just to catch a few users. Major headache for first sergeant.

Always fun when somebody pops hot. This idiot couldn’t stay off his pixie dust for 72 hours before his very first drill assembly, that’s how long cocaine is in the system.

I served on `admin sep’ boards, heard every excuse imaginable. But this is beyond even Biden stupid.

Dems elected Marion Berry a DC councilman after his crack bust. It is a resume builder for libs.
