In an interview with CBS News, Herridge highlighted the significant turn of events in the case, considering the recent developments. Recently, in late July, both the prosecutors and Hunter Biden’s defense team made an attempt to bring an end to this case that has spanned several years, according to her statement. The endeavor, nonetheless, proved unsuccessful as the plea agreement unraveled, leaving the judge’s determination on acceptance or denial in limbo.
In a press conference held on Friday, it was revealed that David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in charge of the investigation, had made a request to Attorney General Merrick Garland earlier in the week to be designated as a Special Counsel. This development emerged as the most significant news from the conference. According to Weiss, the current state of the case has reached a level that requires the implementation of said status.
Herridge proceeded to delve into the ramifications of this decision. In the near future, it is anticipated that Weiss will deliver a report to the nation detailing his determination regarding the Hunter Biden case. This report aims to provide clarification regarding the possibility of charges being brought forth or declined, which could potentially result in congressional testimony.
A former federal prosecutor, who spoke to Herridge prior to the announcement, highlighted that the appointment of a special counsel could potentially extend the timeline for resolving the Hunter Biden case. Significantly, the potential consequence of this development is the potential delay of Weiss’ anticipated testimonies to Republican members of Congress, who have been eagerly anticipating his account for a considerable period of time.
The recent change in approach, transitioning from previous efforts to conclude the case a few weeks ago to the appointment of a Special Counsel with broad powers, highlights the significance of Weiss’ remarks on June 7th. During that time, Weiss asserted his ultimate jurisdiction over the investigation.
IRS whistleblowers have alleged that charges against Hunter Biden were unexpectedly dismissed by Weiss, despite his prior approval. Weiss’s investigation seemed to lack the complete authority that he had previously conveyed to Congress.
There are allegations that Weiss concealed incriminating evidence from investigators and that his office impeded the investigation from examining Joe Biden’s potential involvement in his son’s business transactions.
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced on Friday that, after careful consideration of the request and taking into account the exceptional circumstances surrounding the issue, he has determined that it is in the best interest of the public to designate him as Special Counsel.
Similar to Herridge, there are individuals who are raising concerns about the credibility of the special counsel, considering the measures taken by the Biden Department of Justice to safeguard Hunter. Mike Cernovich claimed that due to an ongoing investigation, the individuals in question can now decline to provide documents to Congress, labeling the situation as fake.
Whistleblowers from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have provided testimony alleging that their investigation into Hunter Biden was impeded by political interference from higher-ranking officials. These individuals claim that charges that had been previously approved were inexplicably omitted when it came to charging the president’s son.
Whistleblowers have also noted that U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was assigned to investigate Hunter Biden, had limited powers and jurisdiction, despite unsuccessful efforts to acquire expanded authority.
The Biden family’s close relationship with one of the prosecutors in Weiss’s office is also a matter of concern. During the investigation, another act that raised concerns was the provision of advance notice to the Biden transition team regarding a scheduled interview between Hunter Biden and FBI and IRS agents.
The interview with Hunter was successfully prevented by the team, ensuring that he would not be available for questioning. The son of the president was informed in advance about a forthcoming search of his storage unit.
In their testimony, it was revealed that the Department of Justice (DOJ) often caused delays in legal proceedings, exhibited a lack of transparency, and actively defended Hunter against claims of tax liability, despite the presence of compelling evidence.
