For two years now, we’ve been updating readers on the Hunter Biden scandal that the media has mostly ignored – even as they like bloodhounds investigated every financial transaction by Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and his son-in-law Jerad Kushner.
Things are about to get ugly for the Biden family, with a credible whistleblower stepping up to say the Biden DOJ directly interfered with an investigation to protect Hunter. Worse, AG Garland lied to Congress.
John Solomon reports:
The whistleblower alleged that Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss could not legally bring charges in Delaware. Because of where Hunter Biden lived at the time his tax returns were filed, Weiss needed the permission of Biden-appointed U.S. attorneys in other districts to bring charges outside of Delaware. The agent alleges two such U.S. attorneys appointed by Biden declined his requests, according to interviews.
In testimony as recently as last month, Garland told Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley that Weiss had full authority to bring charges in any district he needed. “If it’s in another district, he would have to bring the case in another district,” Garland said. “But as I said, I promise to ensure that he’s able to carry out his investigation and that he’d be able to run it. And if he needs to bring it in another jurisdiction, he will have full authority to do that.”
The IG has obtained contemporaneous government emails and memos in DOJ files documenting to IRS leadership what the agent believed was evidence of political interference and biased behavior by DOJ employees. The agent is willing to make the same evidence available to Congress, according to Lytle’s letter.
