“The link could pose a potential conflict of interest as the Justice Department is investigating Hunter Biden over his tax affairs and foreign business dealings.”
Hampton Dellinger, Biden’s nominee for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, worked with Hunter Biden at a law firm that represented the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Do you think that’s a coincidence?
During Trump’s presidency, Democrats and the media constantly warned that Trump would use the White House to enrich his family and friends. Now the same people act as Biden’s defenders.
Chuck Ross reports at the Washington Free Beacon:
DOJ Nominee Worked with Hunter Biden at Law Firm Tied To Ukrainian Energy Giant
Joe Biden’s nominee for a top Justice Department position worked alongside Hunter Biden at a prominent law firm that represented Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings, emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop show.
Hampton Dellinger, who President Biden nominated on Friday to lead the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, worked on the Crisis Management and Government Response team at Boies Schiller Flexner, an international law firm where Biden served as counsel. Emails from Biden’s laptop show he worked closely with lawyers on Boies Schiller Flexner’s crisis management team. He referred Burisma Holdings to the crisis unit as a client in April 2014. Biden’s laptop emails also indicate he attended a private dinner party with Dellinger and several other Boies Schiller Flexner lawyers in March 2014.
The link could pose a potential conflict of interest as the Justice Department is investigating Hunter Biden over his tax affairs and foreign business dealings. Federal prosecutors are also reportedly investigating whether a Democratic consulting firm that worked closely with Biden illegally lobbied for Burisma.
Compare that to this Reuters report by Caroline Spiezio. See if you can spot the difference:
Biden taps ex-Boies partner to lead DOJ policy office
U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday tapped former Boies Schiller Flexner partner Hampton Dellinger to lead the Justice Department’s policy office, which advises on nominations for federal judgeships.
Dellinger, who if confirmed would become assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Policy, has worked in government before. He served as deputy attorney general in the North Carolina Department of Justice and as chief legal counsel in the North Carolina governor’s office, where he oversaw the judicial appointment process.
“I’m honored to be nominated, and I recognize the important work OLP does on judicial nominations as well as the range of legal policy issues facing the Justice Department,” Dellinger said in an email.
There’s not a single mention of Hunter Biden in the entire Reuters article. Weird, huh?
Hunter Biden’s former law partner tapped for a senior DOJ role. Nothing to see here folks.

Good thing Hunter Biden isn't under federal investigation or this might look really bad. https://t.co/2lhjSKR0e1
