His son’s legal troubles cast a shadow over Biden’s re-election campaign

In the US, the Justice Department has poured petrol into the charges against Hunter Biden, the president’s son Joe Biden It was determined on two minor charges tax fraud for non-payment of federal income taxes for 2017 and 2018, which he later settled for more than $1 million.

In the last few hours, the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, appointed David Weiss, the Delaware federal prosecutor who served as special prosecutor in the investigation into Hunter Biden. The appointment makes him a prosecutor with more powers than a normal prosecutor to act on the case.

The move is controversial because it comes while a pending settlement with Hunter on those charges is still pending. Now, Garland says, he’s making the decision after Weiss ran for the appointment himself. “On Tuesday of this week, Mr. Weiss informed me that he believed his investigation had reached a stage where he should continue his work as a special counsel and was seeking appointment,” Garland said. “After considering his application and the exceptional circumstances surrounding this matter, I have come to the conclusion that it is in the public interest to appoint him as a special prosecutor,” he told the press.

Weiss will write a report that the Attorney General is expected to release once the investigation is complete. This has been standard practice for special prosecutors such as Robert Mueller and John Durham in recent years.

The Republican opposition is foaming at the mouth. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has directly blamed Biden hinder your child’s investigation with the appointment. McCarthy expressed doubts about whether Special Counsel David Weiss could be trusted and said in a statement that lawmakers would continue their investigations into the president’s family. “This action by the Biden Department of Justice cannot be used to obstruct congressional investigations or cover up Biden family corruption,” he stated in X. “If Weiss negotiated the favorable deal that could not be approved, how can you then trust him?” as a special prosecutor? “Republicans in the House of Representatives will continue to look for facts for the American people,” he said.

The representative in turn Russell dyeSpeaker for the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jim JordanHe also questioned whether Weiss could be trusted, saying the appointment as special counsel was “simply a new way of covering up the corruption of the Biden family.” Weiss has already agreed to a plea deal so unfair and unfavorable that a federal judge rejected it. “We will continue to search for facts revealed by courageous whistleblowers and Weiss’ contradictory testimonies before Congress,” Dye continued.

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, also reacted in this direction, for whom the measure also “is part of the Justice Department’s effort to cover up the Biden family”. “Let’s get clear on what today’s movement really means,” he said in a statement. “Biden’s Justice Department is attempting to impede congressional scrutiny while we presented the American people with evidence of Biden family corruption,” he said.

Both Comer and Jordan pioneered the investigation into President Biden’s family businesses and have been harshly critical of the way the Justice Department conducted its investigation into Hunter Biden. But the truth is, it’s not clear if this inquiry will be of any use in the House of Commons, let alone reach the Senate, where the President now has a slim majority.

Meanwhile, Biden is continuing his presidential agenda as usual, while a slight spike in inflation last July seems to be the only problem for his campaign in a country where nothing is more important than the economy.
