BOOM! Hunter Biden Prosecutor Comes Under Microscope After Controversial Plea Deal

(Republican Leader) – Following the sweetheart deal made with Hunter Biden, many Republicans are now looking into the case’s prosecutor, U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who cut the deal, which hands the first son probation instead of jail time for the numerous felony charges he is facing involving tax evasion and gun violations. This is a prime example of the two-tiered system of justice you’ve likely been hearing about from conservatives all across the country.

The rules are apparently only for the plebs, while the rich and liberal are immune to the consequences of their actions.

Terresa Monroe-Hamilton of BizPac Review wrote, “The Justice Department is being accused of corruption over the ruling by Republicans who decry a two-tier justice system. Weiss hotly denied claims on Monday by two IRS whistleblowers who alleged officials at the Justice Department, FBI, and IRS interfered with his five-year investigation into President Biden’s son. Attorney General Merrick Garland has also denied it.”

Weiss defended the investigation into the president’s troubled son after coming out in June to announce that Hunter agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax violations and to partake in a diversion program for a felony gun charge, which prevents him from being sent to prison.

“Weiss hails from Philadelphia. He started his legal career in 1984 as a law clerk to Justice Andrew D. Christie of the Delaware Supreme Court. Despite the fact that he’s a registered Republican, it does not appear that he’s made any kind of meaningful donations to the party, according to Federal Election Commission records,” Monroe-Hamilton said.

In the past, Weiss has served as an assistant to the U.S. attorney beginning in 1986 with his time in the position ending several years later in 1989. While in office, he prosecuted cases concerning money laundering, corruption, and mail and wire fraud. He then spent a decade in the private sector working for Duane Morris and The Siegfried Group, before coming back to serve as the first assistant U.S. attorney.

Former President Donald Trump nominated Weiss as U.S. attorney in November 2017 after receiving recommendations from Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons from Delaware.

“David is a career prosecutor and dedicated public servant, longtime Delawarean, and valued member of our law enforcement community,” Coons stated at the time, trying his best to sell Weiss to Trump. “I want to thank the White House for working with Sen. Carper and me to present an excellent nominee for US attorney.”

Weiss was later confirmed by the Senate and sworn into office as an attorney for the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware in Feb. 2018.

“In February 2021, shortly after President Biden took office, the DOJ pressured Trump-appointed U.S. attorneys to resign, but Weiss was asked to stay on due to the Hunter Biden probe, which began sometime in 2018,” Fox News divulged.

“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent letters to Weiss and Garland in June, demanding answers amid allegations from the whistleblowers suggesting the probe was slow-walked and influenced by politics,” the media outlet added.

Whistleblowers gave testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee stating that Weiss was “constantly hamstrung, limited, and marginalized by DOJ officials as well as other US Attorneys.” They also revealed that Weiss had made a request to have special counsel authority, however, it was rejected.

“It is imperative these allegations are addressed head-on,” Graham noted in a letter addressed to Garland, going on to ask him if he was “aware of any request” by Weiss to be given authority as special counsel. Weiss himself issued a response to the letter on Monday denying he ever made such a request, saying he has “never been denied the authority to bring charges in any jurisdiction.”

Folks at the Justice Department are also rejecting the claims being made by the whistleblowers.
