“Attorney General Merrick B. Garland announced the appointment of U.S. Attorney David Weiss to serve as Special Counsel for the ongoing investigation and prosecutions referenced and described in United States v. Robert Hunter Biden, as well as for any other matters that arose or may arise from that investigation.”

Analyst Comment: Weiss is the dirty prosecutor who tried to trick a federal judge into rubber stamping a plea deal that would grant Hunter Biden broad immunity in exchange for probation and no jail time. Nevertheless, this is a major blow to Biden’s DoJ who previously claimed a Special Counsel was not appropriate.
