Garland Names David Weiss as Particular Counsel in Hunter Biden Probe

Garland Appoints Weiss As Tax Investigation’s Special Counsel Merrick Garland on Friday named David Weiss—the identical prosecutor who manufactured a court-rejected plea arrangement with first son Hunter Biden—as the specific counsel during the tax probe. On Tuesday, Garland said that Weiss, the United States attorney for the District of Delaware, had asked him to be special counsel in the case.

Garland told reporters on Friday, “After considering his request, as well as the extraordinary circumstances regarding this matter, I have concluded that it is within the public interest to nominate him as particular counsel.” “This job shows my dedication to supply Mr. Weiss all of the sources he requests. It also confirms that Mr. Weiss is free to investigate thoroughly and take whatever actions he sees fit on his own.

In the same week of his appointment, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee released documents from the president’s family’s banks showing that they had received at least $20 million from foreign individuals and organisations.

The Democrats in Congress didn’t seem interested in making a statement. Many Democrats have taken notice of Trump’s nomination of Weiss to be U.S. attorney general. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) claims that Weiss knew of an FBI form that claimed then-Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden each took a $5 million bribe from a government official at Burisma, the Ukrainian power company where the younger Biden worked as a board member.

This is Joe Biden’s second specialised counsel appointed to investigate a specific issue. In January, Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former U.S. Attorney for Maryland, to investigate whether the president had any classified documents in his possession while out of the office.
