Former President Trump’s representatives have voiced concerns over the recent decision to appoint a special counsel for the investigation into Hunter Biden, decrying the perceived corruption of the Biden administration’s Department of Justice.

The Trump team released a statement on Friday in response to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of Delaware District Attorney David Weiss to investigate Hunter Biden, asserting that the Justice Department has long shielded the Biden family.

“Crooked Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the entire Biden Crime Family have been protected by the Justice Department for decades even though there is overwhelming evidence and credible testimony detailing their wrongdoing of lying to the American people and selling out the country to foreign enemies for the Biden Cartel’s own financial gain,” Donald Trump’s spokesman Steven Cheung said in the statement.

“If this special counsel is truly independent — even though he failed to bring proper charges after a four-year investigation and he appears to be trying to move the case to a more Democrat-friendly venue — he will quickly conclude that Joe Biden, his troubled son Hunter, and their enablers, including the media, which colluded with the 51 intelligence officials who knowingly misled the public about Hunter’s laptop, should face the required consequences.”

Previously, Trump had brought Hunter Biden’s business engagements to the forefront during the 2020 presidential race. Simultaneously, House Republicans have reignited inquiries concerning the potential involvement of President Biden in his son’s corporate activities — allegations both the president and the White House have refuted.

On Friday, Garland assigned Weiss, the Delaware federal prosecutor who has been at the forefront of the Hunter Biden investigation, as the overseeing special counsel. This decision was prompted after Weiss requested such a designation.

Republicans have been vocal about their dissatisfaction with the management of a tax inquiry related to Hunter Biden. They point to allegations from two IRS informants suggesting that Weiss was deterred from acquiring the special counsel title; however, both Weiss and the Justice Department have resolutely rejected these claims.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy hinted at potential grounds for Garland’s impeachment, highlighting disparities between the informants’ testimonies and the combined narratives of Weiss and Garland regarding prosecutorial powers. Moreover, House Republicans expressed reservations concerning Weiss’ recent appointment.

McCarthy articulated his apprehension on X, formerly known as Twitter, writing, “This action by Biden’s DOJ cannot be used to obstruct congressional investigations or whitewash the Biden family corruption. If Weiss negotiated the sweetheart deal that couldn’t get approved, how can he be trusted as a Special Counsel? House Republicans will continue to pursue the facts for the American people.”
