A brand new report coming out of Politico says that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss made the decision to avoid certain courses of action that might have alerted the public during the 2020 election to the investigation he was conducting into Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden.
The investigation has mainly been focused on trying to find out if Hunter has violated any tax laws, but has also looked into his business dealings with businesses in foreign countries.
During the summer of 2020, the investigation into Hunter had reached a level where search warrants could have been pursued, along with grand jury subpoenas. However, some individuals counseled Weiss to pursue that course of action, while others said to exercise caution.
As it turns out, Weiss decided to wait. According to Politico, the decision to wait was made to help avoid the possibility of the investigation becoming a campaign issue during the election.
“To his credit, he listened,” someone involved in the conversations went on to say.
Weiss, who is a Republican, was appointed to his position by former President Donald Trump and has been allowed to remain in it by President Joe Biden.
He has declined to provide a comment on this story.
“I remember thinking he’s a straight shooter, and he’s the perfect one to have it,” Lyons stated. The attorney has a history with Weiss that dates back to the 1980s.
Dan Lyons, a defense lawyer, said that he was relieved to find out that Weiss was the person overseeing the investigation.
But so is the fact that the probe continues, with most expecting that Weiss will not drop the case until making a full assessment of Hunter Biden’s culpability, Politico noted.
Meanwhile, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told Newsmax on Thursday that the White House and the Department of Justice must provide more answers concerning the activities of President Joe Biden’s son, including revealing the names of who is buying his artwork for large sums of money.
“We would like to know what is going on,” she commented on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.” “He is going to make millions of dollars selling these paintings, but the American people are not going to be allowed to know what the paintings sell for and who is going to be purchasing these paintings?”
The congresswoman then said that her constituents are “fed up with a two-tier system of justice and double standards … they see the Democrats treated one way and Republicans treated another way.”
