In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Senate Republicans demand that the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden be given special privileges as a lawyer.

A group of 33 senators, including Kentucky Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, believe the move is warranted, as the target of the investigation is the current president’s son.

And they noted that the Justice Department is currently embroiled in allegations of a partisan political organization.

“Given the politicization of the DOJ under your supervision and the importance of avoiding any appearance of impropriety, the undersigned requests that you notify the US Attorney [David] Weiss the full protection and powers of special counsel,” the letter reads.

They add that this would be “an important action you can take that will go a long way towards restoring confidence in our government institutions.”

Hunter Biden Special Counsel and what it means

Weiss, the US attorney for Delaware, has led the investigation into Hunter Biden and his tax affairs.

TSWT noted in July that the investigation had reached a “critical point” and focused primarily on alleged tax violations and “making a false statement in connection with Biden’s purchase of a firearm.”

The revelation prompted former TSWT host Brian Stelter, who went out of his way to shit the story as “Russian misinformation,” worrying it could take down President Biden’s 2024 campaign.

‘What about Hunter? Hunter under federal investigation, charges are due any minute. This is not just any right-wing media story,” Stelter was concerned. “This is a real problem for the Bidens.”

“Could he decide not to run for re-election given his son?”

The younger Biden’s laptop provided a wealth of information about his business dealings, arms purchases and his penchant for drugs and prostitutes.

By giving Weiss special counsel privileges, members of Congress would gain some insight into an eventual prosecutor’s decision on whether or not to charge Biden’s son.

TSWT reports that the move “would force Garland to explain to Congress that he disagreed with an action Weiss suggested during the investigation, up to and including a recommendation to indict Hunter Biden.”

Numerous Federal Crimes

The letter to Merrick Garland states that there is evidence that Hunter Biden may have committed “numerous federal crimes.”

“There is no way of knowing the full scope of the investigation, but evidence seems to be accumulating that Hunter Biden committed numerous federal crimes, including, but not limited to, tax fraud, money laundering and foreign lobbying violations.” the letter said. is reading.

The senators have criticized Garland’s DOJ for targeting electoral integrity laws in conservative states and conducting an unprecedented raid on a former president while ignoring violent threats against the Supreme Court and pro-life facilities.

By providing special protection to Hunter Biden’s accuser, Garland could maintain a certain level of confidence that can play on a flat field.

“Since the investigation concerns the president’s son, we believe it is important to provide U.S. Attorney Weiss with special counsel powers and protections to enable him to investigate an appropriate scope of possible criminal conduct, the appearance of of impropriety and provide additional assurances to the American people that Hunter Biden’s investigation is free of political influence.”

An investigation free of political influence seems to be a necessity.

The letter comes amid recent claims by Senator Chuck Grassley, who says senior FBI whistleblowers have accused the Bureau, along with the DOJ, of withholding negative information about Hunter Biden ahead of the 2020 election.

Grassley (R-IA) claimed in a July 25 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Garland that in 2020 the FBI had information about alleged “criminal financial and related activities” committed by Hunter Biden, but instead of investigating , a team to discredit it as “disinformation,” a move that “caused the investigation activity to stop.”

An FBI agent named by the whistleblowers for withholding negative information about Hunter Biden and his laptop and business dealings left the Bureau last month.

President Biden claimed in an interview with TSWT News that his son’s foreign business deals did not constitute a conflict of interest for him.

“There’s nothing I’ve noticed that would affect me or the United States compared to my son Hunter,” the president said.

Biden has met several of Hunter’s business associates over the years.

“Clearly, Hunter Biden thrived on a pay-to-play culture of accessing his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, in exchange for financial compensation,” the senators wrote.
