The Justice Department is hopelessly politicized under Attorney general of the United States Merrick Garland.
No place is this more apparent than in the Hunter Biden case.
And Jim Jordan revealed secret testament that had Merrick Garland hitting the panic button.
Special Counsel David Weiss appeared before your home Judiciary Committee for a closed-door interview about his work on the federal criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.
Weiss was designated by Attorney General Merrick Garland to be unique counsel after he dragged his feet for several years charging the President’s child as the US Lawyer for Delaware.
He supposedly testified that he requested the ability to bring charges against Hunter beyond his Delaware jurisdiction in 2015 without bringing the regional US Lawyer signing off but was denied the ability.
2 United States Attorneys appointed by President Joe Biden refused to greenlight charges being submitted versus Hunter in their jurisdictions.
Weiss claimed he had the complete authority to bring charges versus Hunter, but his statement exposed that wasn’t true.
House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that the “crucial takeaway” from the statement was that Weiss pretended to have authority that didn’t have.
“He will not respond to a great deal of concerns,” Jordan told reporters. “But that’s the crucial takeaway due to the fact that this whole deposition had to do with the changing story we obtained from DOJ, concerning the authority that he had.”
The Department of Justice declares that Weiss was free to bring charges in the probe without the agency’s approval.
Jordan included that Weiss’s statement corroborated what IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, who led the company’s investigation into Hunter’s tax crimes, had declared.
Shapley stated that when Weiss was the Delaware United States Attorney, he told agents working the case that he was not the “deciding person” on charges versus Hunter in an October 2022 meeting.
Shapley together with fellow IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler declared that the Justice Department slow-walked the examination into Hunter to permit some possible charges to fall outside the statute of restrictions.
Payments from Ukrainian energy business Burisma were among the potential tax crimes that were allowed to end from the foot-dragging by prosecutors.
Bursima’s CEO allegedly bribed then-Vice President Joe Biden and Hunter, who was serving on the company’s board, $5 million each to have a Ukrainian anti-corruption district attorney fired.
Garland previously affirmed before the Judiciary Committee that Weiss had the authority to bring any charges forward in the case.
“Once again Shapley and Ziegler’s statement continues to stand up to every witness we generated for an interview,” Jordan stated.
The Justice Department was meddling in the Hunter Biden probe to attempt and make sure that the President’s kid avoided jail.
