Weiss Steps Up: The New Face of the Hunter Biden Investigation


In a move that has captured significant attention across the nation, Attorney General Merrick Garland disclosed on Friday that David Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for Delaware, will now be playing a central role as special counsel in the intensifying probe into Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden.

Interestingly, it seems this new designation was suggested by Weiss himself. “On Tuesday of this week, Mr. Weiss advised me that… he should continue his work as a special counsel,” Garland remarked, indicating that this shift is backed by the gravity and uniqueness of the current circumstances.

Weiss, initially appointed by former President Donald Trump, now holds the reins of the Hunter Biden inquiry. With this renewed status, he’s been empowered to steer the investigation based solely on the foundations of evidence and law, free from daily oversight by departmental higher-ups. Garland reiterated this, emphasizing Weiss’ autonomy and decision-making freedom in directing where and how the probe progresses.

However, a prior claim made by an IRS whistleblower casts a shadow of intrigue, suggesting that Weiss had previously approached to be designated as a special counsel but was declined. Weiss has since dismissed these claims as baseless.

The timing of Garland’s announcement is poignant, to say the least. Just last month, a potential plea deal for Hunter faced an unexpected snag when it was perceived not to shield him adequately from potential future legal pursuits. The initial deal would have had Hunter admitting to minor tax evasion charges with an illegal firearm possession charge being deferred. However, this arrangement didn’t materialize as Hunter opted to plead not guilty.

Amidst all this legal whirlwind, the Biden family has faced other serious allegations. Claims have emerged that Hunter might have exploited his father’s position as vice president during the Obama era for monetary gains, especially in connection to Ukrainian energy giant Burisma.

Rep. James Comer, at the forefront of a congressional probe into the Bidens, took a swipe at the latest DOJ move, opining that it might be an attempt to overshadow the alleged Biden family dealings. According to him, the department’s actions might be more about deflection than genuine pursuit of justice.

Only time will reveal the veracity of these claims and how Weiss, in his elevated role, tackles the multifaceted maze of the Hunter Biden investigation. One thing is certain: the story is far from over, and every twist will be watched with bated breath.
