Why David Weiss as special counsel is a ruse to protect Hunter and Joe Biden


Don’t be fooled.

The appointment of Delaware US Attorney David Weiss as special counsel to head the probe into first son Hunter Biden’s web of shady activities is likely no more than a complex feint by his dad and his pet attorney general, Merrick Garland. 

Why else leave Weiss in charge

Garland had claimed, essentially, that Weiss has had all the powers of a special counsel all along.

Was he lying again then — or is he lying now, by pretending the prosecutor will get new powers to investigate and bring charges?

Recall that Weiss served as point man on slow-walking the first Hunter case until after the 2020 election and the statute of limitations had expired for some of his alleged crimes. 

Then he delivered a joke of a plea deal that appeared to let Hunter skate for past crimes yet to be turned up.

(The deal has since collapsed, after heroic judge Maryellen Noreika called Weiss out on it). 

Indeed, Garland’s move shows the same utter contempt for the rule of law that Team Biden has shown from the start on this.

The regulations around special counsel appointments require that they come from outside the US government.

That’s to help add a measure of independence.

Yet Weiss is an employee who serves under Garland, the AG tapped by Hunter’s dad, Joe Biden.

We’re really supposed to believe that Weiss is going to hold his bosses to account?

Recall too Weiss’ use of the “ongoing” probe into Hunter as an excuse to refuse a request for documents from House Republicans like Oversight’s Rep. Jim Comer (R-Ky.).

The stage seems set now for even more obfuscation meant to stymie those sincerely trying expose the Biden family’s high-powered influence-peddling operation and determine if any laws were broken.

Particularly those involving President Biden himself. 

Prepare, too, for more delay: With Slow-as-Molasses Weiss at the helm, there’s no reason the probe can’t stretch until long after the 2024 election.  

The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

Americans should see this move for what is: a desperate coverup.

Which makes you wonder: What exactly are Biden & Co. trying to hide?

Could this all be worse than anyone thought? 

Comer and other lawmakers clearly need to keep pressing, no matter how much political interference may come their way. 

This is a brazen move by Joe Biden and Merrick Garland to try to sweep everything under the rug — and the only place for the truth to emerge is Congress.
