The Biden Administration Attorney General, Merrick Garland, just announced that a special counsel was appointed to conduct an investigation as part of the ongoing probe in the the business activities of Hunter Biden, the son of the current president.

Announcing the appointment of Weiss, AG Garland said, “As Special Counsel, he will continue to have the authority and responsibility that he has previously exercised to oversee the investigation and decide where, when, and whether to file charges. The Special Counsel will not be subject to the day-to-day supervision of any official of the Department, but he must comply with the regulations, procedures, and policies of the Department. Consistent with the Special Counsel regulations, at the conclusion of Mr. Weiss’ work, he will provide me with a report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by him. As with each Special Counsel who has served since I have taken office, I am committed to making as much of his report public as possible, consistent with legal requirements and Department policy.”

Continuing, Garland added, “On Tuesday of this week, Mr. Weiss advised me that in his judgment, his investigation has reached a stage at which he should continue his work as a Special Counsel, and he asked to be so appointed. Upon considering his request, as well as the extraordinary circumstances relating to this matter, I have concluded it is in the public interest to appoint him as Special Counsel. This appointment confirms my commitment to provide Mr. Weiss all the resources he requests. It also reaffirms that Mr. Weiss has the authority he needs to conduct a thorough investigation and to continue to take the steps he deems appropriate independently, based only on the facts and the law.

He also attempted to boost the FBI and DOJ a bit as more and more Americans look askance at them, saying, “The men and women undertaking this investigation are public servants who have dedicated their careers to protecting the citizens of this country. The appointment of Mr. Weiss reinforces for the American people the Department’s commitment to both independence and accountability in particularly sensitive matters.

In a statement on the special counsel announcement, Hunter Biden’s lawyer Chris Clark said, “Whether in Delaware, Washington, D.C. or anywhere else, we expect a fair resolution on behalf of our client.” Continuing, he added, “has diligently been investigating my client for five years and he had proposed a resolution which we fully intend to pursue in court. It is hard to see why he would have proposed such a resolution if there were other offenses he could have successfully prosecuted, and we are aware of none. We are confident when all of these maneuverings are at an end, my client will have resolution and will be moving on with his life successfully.

Even CBS indicated that something sketchy could be going on with the deal, suggesting that Weiss was made the special counsel to keep him quiet, as he is the one behind the Hunter plea deal that was tossed out.
