Biden Administration Provides Cover for Hunter Investigation

Written by David E. Smith

Last Friday afternoon, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he had named Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel to continue the investigation into Hunter Biden “as well as any matters that arose from that investigation or may arise from the Special Counsel’s investigation.” This appointment has been criticized as illegal by many, including liberal Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley is also on record in a column for The Hill pointing out significant problems with the appointment:

This is, after all, the same Weiss who headed an investigation that was trashed by whistleblowers, who alleged that his investigation had been fixed from the outset.

It is the same Weiss who ran an investigation in which agents were allegedly prevented from asking about Joe Biden, obstructed in their efforts to pursue questions and compromised by tip-offs to the Biden team on planned searches.

It is also the same Weiss who reportedly allowed the statute of limitations to run out on Hunter’s major tax offenses, even though he had the option to extend it.

It is the same Weiss who did not indict on major tax felonies and cut a plea deal that brushed aside a felony gun charge.

It is the same Weiss who inked a widely panned “sweetheart” deal that caused a federal judge to balk and trash a sweeping immunity grant — language that even the prosecutor admitted he had never previously seen in a plea deal.

Even the New York Times pointed out that the decision of Weiss as special counsel raises eyebrows because he already was “the Trump-appointed U.S. attorney for Delaware who has been leading the investigation into President Biden’s son Hunter,” and

…that both Mr. Garland and Mr. Weiss have already said the prosecutor was empowered to act independently. That means making Mr. Weiss a special counsel may be more of a cosmetic gesture — essentially formalizing what has already been the case — than a new reality.

The attorney general’s move came against the backdrop of accusations by Republicans that Mr. Weiss had offered what they portrayed as a sweetheart plea bargain to the younger Mr. Biden because of political manipulations by Mr. Garland or by the White House. Functionally, the formalization of Mr. Weiss’s independence could serve as a shield against such accusations.

As mentioned above, it is important to point out that the plea deal fell apart when it was rejected by the presiding Judge Maryellen Noreika, yet Weiss has now been appointed special counsel to investigate the same matter. This raises concerns that Weiss may be biased in favor of Hunter Biden, or that he may be trying to protect him. This is further evidence that implicates the Department of Justice in obstructing an honest investigation. According to an article in The Federalist, Weiss was already “slow-walking” the investigation, and according to whistle blowers:

others in the office impeded the normal investigative techniques, prevented them from interviewing witnesses and executing search warrants, kept them from asking pertinent questions, and did many other things to interfere in the probe of the president’s son. Weiss also axed the whistleblowers and their elite team of experts who specialized in international money laundering and tax evasion investigations, likely leaving inexperienced or less experienced agents in their place.

This is an important story of political corruption at the highest levels of our federal government. Every voter should understand what the Bidens are being accused of and why they need to be investigated. The liberal media will not cover this important national story as they should, so alternative trustworthy sources are needed.

Therefore, we highly recommend watching/listening to this latest episode of “Verdict With Ted Cruz” podcast to get a better understanding of this scandal that involves millions of dollars of payments to the family and associates of Joe Biden from foreign nations from Russia, Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan .
