Garland Appoints the Prosecutor Who Gave Hunter a Sweetheart Deal as Special Counsel in the Probe

Garland Appoints the Prosecutor Who Gave Hunter a Sweetheart Deal as Special Counsel in the Probe

Federal prosecutor David Weiss told Garland that “his investigation has reached a stage at which he should continue his work as a special counsel, and he asked to be appointed.”

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced he appointed a special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation.

Whoa, are they actually taking the case seriously?

Oh, wait.

Garland chose David Weiss, who brought the charges against Hunter:

“I’m here today to announce the appointment of David Weiss as a special counsel consistent with the Department of Justice regulations governing such matters. In keeping with those regulations, I have today notified the designated members of each House of Congress of the appointment,” Garland said at a press conference in Washington, D.C.

Weiss is the federal prosecutor who has investigated the business dealings of Hunter Biden and brought charges against him in Delaware. His appointment as special counsel indicates that, contrary to Biden’s defense lawyers’ claims, the Justice Department investigation into President Biden’s son is not over.

Garland said on Tuesday that Weiss told him that “in his judgment, his investigation has reached a stage at which he should continue his work as a special counsel, and he asked to be appointed.”

The thing is, Weiss is the one who offered Hunter the sweetheart plea deal. Hunter would plead guilty to tax evasion charges to avoid a federal gun charge.

It’s not just that. Weiss tried to slip past the court that the agreement included immunity for Hunter in any future prosecutions.

Thank goodness U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika saw through everything and told them as such.

Hunter ended up pleading not guilty to the tax evasion charges.

The government also admitted to Noreika that it still had Hunter under federal investigation.

Garland confirmed that during his press conference with the appointment of Weiss.

But is the DOJ really still investigating Hunter? I would believe it if the DOJ didn’t appoint Weiss.

Appointing Weiss is beyond ridiculous. Just when you think the administration couldn’t get more obvious that it covers up everything they do something like this.

Weiss thinks anyone can trust him to be a special counsel and Garland agreed.

Weiss’s actions with the deal and trying to sneak it past Noreika is the reason why the probe needs a special counsel.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan went off on Weiss’s appointment: “David Weiss can’t be trusted and this is just a new way to whitewash the Biden family’s corruption. Weiss has already signed off on a sweetheart plea deal that was so awful and unfair that a federal judge rejected it. We will continue to pursue facts brought to light by brave whistleblowers as well as Weiss’s inconsistent statements to Congress.”

But the DOJ also filed “to dismiss the Hunter Biden plea deal case in Delaware.”

The DOJ said since Hunter pled not guilty, they will have a trial. The trial cannot take place in Delaware because it doesn’t have jurisdiction:

“On June 20, 2023, the United States filed a criminal information charging the Defendant with two counts of failure to pay taxes, in violation of 26 U.S.C. § 7203. ECF 2. Venue for these offenses does not lie in Delaware. Rather, venue for these offenses and any other related tax offenses lies either in the Central District of California or in the District of Columbia,” the filing also says.

“The information was filed in this District because the parties had previously agreed that the Defendant would waive any challenge to venue and plead guilty in this District. However, during the July 26, 2023, hearing that the Court set on this matter, the Defendant pled not guilty,” it adds. “Since that time, the parties have engaged in further plea negotiations but are at an impasse. The Government now believes that the case will not resolve short of a trial.”

Nice stitch up. Done and out of the headlines.

    They can only get away with this if we let them.

    Calling McConnell!…. Oh, never mind.

    Calling Ronna Romney McDaniel!….. Oh, never mind.

    Calling on ANYONE in the GOPe!!…. Wait: there’s a reponse: “FU*K YOU!”

      Calling on Donald Trump!

      Oh, never mind, he endorsed Ronna Romney McDaniel.

      You’re just calling the wrong number, the number you want is Trump’s. He’s the one who backed these people, still does to this day.

        There are two versions of Mitch McConnell and Romney McDaniel

        There is the real one, where Mitch McConnell is a real but flawed human being like the rest of us, with some ways he agrees with me, some ways he doesn’t, who has done stellar work pushing through Republican Judges, blocking Democrat ones, and is absolutely hated by the left but a vast majority of Americans have never heard of him.

        One version of McDaniel is a woman of very little importance who does not have any silver bullets for our political issues. doesn’t really have much of a say in government.

        Both have issues that other people take issue with.

        And there is the version that cultists like TheFineReport have who aren’t actually humans but boogeymen they conjure up and dehumanize in order to tar people by association.

        The question is who the hell does he think he is talking to?

        Not a single leftist will be persuadable by that tactic, and I can say with confidence that moderates abhor dehumanization be it towards one person or an entire group.

          Yeah, whatever, Danny, Rona is completely toxic. And I have no idea how Kentucky,the same Kentucky that reelects Rand Paul, keeps electing the least popular member of Congressional leadership. It stinks to high heaven.

        Even I would have trouble picking Ronna Romney McDaniel out of a lineup, and I highly doubt she is on many peoples list of “people I have heard of”.

        I also wonder do you even remember who her predecessor was without looking it up?

        “Head of the RNC” isn’t exactly the top of the list of public officials.

        I agree with you we could use someone better at the job, my point was that McDaniel is not someone it is reasonable to blame for bad behavior by the DOJ.

      And do what?

      List in your own words the authority the senate minority leader has over the Justice Department.

      McDaniel has no authority either.

      The response to you trying to blame Republican Figures for things they have absolutely no control over should be F “”.

      I don’t care that McDaniel is a Trump appointment, she has no authority in this.

      It is time to stop living in fantasy land where you live and get back to Earth. Mitch McConnell isn’t god he can’t control the justice department (that is unless he becomes president of the United States).

    What I find particularly irritating is various pundits/commentators entertaining the proposition that this is somehow legitimate and not another grossly political and corrupt maneuver by Garland. There is nothing proper about this appointment under the regulations or as a matter of policy. The DOJ is a corrupt entity protecting corrupt parties. It is a mistake to view this as the normal course of justice. We don’t have the rule of law anymore and until certain republicans realize that things will never change.


Start the impeachment inquiry and let’s get to the bottow of the corruption and abuses of power.

Two snakes collaborating to to keep Hunter out of jail, or maybe avoid charges of Treason & all that entails.

If the government really cleaned house, few would be left.

Well played, Garland, well played.

Sneaky, unethical sunuvabitch. At least he isn’t on SCOTUS.

Dear God

You convinced yet about the false charges against President Trump yet

You know who I’m talking to

UnCivilServant | August 11, 2023 at 2:37 pm

Impeach Weiss and Garland. Bring it all into the light.

Weiss was appointed because he already had his final report as Special Counsel drafted, and was able to run it by AG Garland prior to Weiss commencing his duties as Special Counsel. Garland thought it was great, and demonstrated that Weiss is a true comrade.

Get ready for a dog and pony show, immediately followed by a new sweetheart deal that will put all this in the rearview for Hunter and the Big Guy.

Steven Brizel | August 11, 2023 at 2:42 pm

This appointment is a classical case of the fox guarding the chicken coop

“We can’t comment while an investigation is underway.”

I had to look it up..

A special counsel is an attorney appointed to investigate, and possibly prosecute, a case in which the Justice Department perceives itself as having a conflict or where it’s deemed to be in the public interest to have someone outside the government come in and take responsibility for a matter.

Isn’t Weiss in this mess up to his eyeballs? This DOJ is a living breathing monty python skit.. Nudge nudge, wink, wink. Say no more.

    ChrisPeters in reply to amwick. | August 11, 2023 at 2:54 pm

    Facts no longer matter to these people. They are Marxists, and they are doing everything they can to fully secure their hold on the government and to make the citizens subservient.

    Milhouse in reply to amwick. | August 13, 2023 at 8:11 am

    Special counsels are rarely from outside the government. They’re usually DOJ employees.

I cannot even express my contempt for the DOJ.

Reminds me (here we go) of all the laws the Commies and Nazis passed so that their future actions were “legal”.

If Jim Jordan can use the House Sergeant at Arms to cudgel recalcitrants like Wray, why isn’t he doing so?

For that matter, any and all perjurers ect etc.

    Pub. L. 104–53, title III, §313, Nov. 19, 1995, 109 Stat. 538 , provided that:

    “(a) The Sergeant at Arms of the House of Representatives shall have the same law enforcement authority, including the authority to carry firearms, as a member of the Capitol Police. The law enforcement authority under the preceding sentence (…)

Where the hell is that moron Ronna Romney McDaniels?????????????

    She’s out partying with her best friend Donald Trump, who endorsed her to head up the RNC

      He endorsed her because he thought what we all thought: that the GOP could not possibly be in league with the communists.

      Trump was wrong, and so were we.

      Ronna the moron is out partying, but it isn’t with Trump.

        Well, if Trump was so stupid that he endorsed someone who was in league with the communists to head up the GOP, then maybe Trump ought not to be president.

        This is a joke, right? He endorsed her in ’22, and if you honestly believe that Trump didn’t get the deep state or the perfidy rife within it by then (we all saw it back in at least ’07-’08, right? Just us normal people, but Trump was blind to it?), then you are proving the point that Trump is not only clueless but has learned NOTHING.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | August 11, 2023 at 10:53 pm

          Revisionist, I had nearly 3 decades of Beltway experience and while I knew there was corruption, I underestimated the problem by orders of magnitude. Other than the swamp, none of us understood how bad it is, and if not for Trump, we would all still blissfully ignorant.

          Trump endorsed her AFTER being president for 4 years. Obviously, you didn’t learn anything after 3 decades of swimming in the swamp.

          JohnSmith100 in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | August 12, 2023 at 12:18 am

          I already said that we did not understand how bad Deep State was, neither did Trump, but their going after him did show us that we have a huge problem, perhaps the end of America as we knew it.

          It doesn’t matter.

          Whatever relevance the RNC has, and whatever criticism you have for the management of it is not what the topic is for him.

          For him Ronna is just the next Karl Rove; someone to take from obscurity to use as a boogeyman (remember his shouting that Rove is running Florida/DeSantis?).

          Rove is failing because he has been irrelevant longer than vast swathes of voters have been alive, and whatever you think of his commentary is not a part of the current political scene.

          Ronna is just his next figure to use the name of.

          Next it might be you or me.

          There are two Ronnas. One is the person you are thinking of who owes her job to Donald Trump.

          The other is the boogeywoman he is trying to create.

          While you don’t have any good things to say about the real ones, unlike him your complaints aren’t her imaginary control of the DOJ.

          The joke is your never-ending criticism of President Trump. He is a victim of the police state corruption not a cause of it. But by all means, keep venting against him. I’m sure the corrupt hacks in the DOJ would much rather you continue to focus on him rather than them.

It’s a better cover-up than you see.

This is not a “we can’t comment for the next two years because the special prosecutor is investigating” cover-up.

This is a “special prosecutor gives Hunter the blanket immunity in EVERY jurisdiction, just as he tried to do in Delaware” cover-up.

Wait and see. Preferably on a Friday afternoon before a major holiday…

fishingfool55 | August 11, 2023 at 3:40 pm

Is this forum shopping? Probably get a more compliant judge in California and put up a new plea agreement before trial.

This is too little: the investigation should not be about Hunter Biden but rather the whole Biden clan – including the president.

And too late: this is rewarding a “prosecutor” that took the better part of 5 years to bring forth a couple of misdemeanor charges, allow other charges to lapse past their limitations, surreptitiously attempt to close the Hunter Biden case but was foiled by an alert judge, and obstructed congressional investigators by claiming that the investigation is ongoing when simultaneously telling Hunter Biden that the plea deal would close the matter.

The end result will be that any investigation results will not be forth coming for several more years (conveniently well past the election) and probably yielding at most an additional misdemeanor.

Your tax dollars hard at work.

Weiss will investigate this Hunter case with a big feather pillow that nothing will escape into the public and in 6 months find he couldn’t find anything.

retiredcantbefired | August 11, 2023 at 5:19 pm

Weiss is one of a few who were disqualified in advance from becoming Special Counsel.

So of course Garland went with him.

“Turn the other cheek” is supposed to be a message of forgiveness, not something the bully says so he can smack the other side of your face too.

Garland Appoints the Prosecutor Who Gave Hunter a Sweetheart Deal as Special Counsel in the Probe

Yeah … “Special” as in “Special Olympics”.

These are the most brazen criminals and traitors that America has ever encountered. Ever. The lunacy and treason that has been unleashed in America is unprecedented in history.

I’ve heard that the Special Counsel statute says that the special counsel must be from outside of the government. Not just outside the DOJ, but outside the government. That would obviously disqualify Weiss. Am I missing something?

Sec. 600.3

“The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the U.S. Government.”

What am I missing here?

    Paddy M in reply to tiger66. | August 11, 2023 at 8:47 pm

    That there is no more law and order at the federal level. Words on a piece of paper are meaningless when communists are in charge.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to tiger66. | August 11, 2023 at 8:51 pm

    That we no longer operate under the laws passed by Congress, but by the will of the Executive and the Bureaucracy.

    Looking at this chain of events, I would like to have the Gentle Readers explain how we are living and being ruled under the Rule of Law and the Constitution.

    Subotai Bahadur

    Milhouse in reply to tiger66. | August 13, 2023 at 8:22 am

    What you’re missing is that that is a regulation, not a statute. And that Garland did not base this appointment on that regulation.

If you made this kind of corruption up in a book or movie no one would buy it

E Howard Hunt | August 12, 2023 at 7:08 am

Garland, an obvious self-loather, has only two paths open to him in life- jealously attack decent, honest people and their modes of life or commit suicide.

dging: I’ve heard that the Special Counsel statute says that the special counsel must be from outside of the government.

There has been no special counsel statute since the expiration of the independent counsel statute in 1999, largely due to what was seen as excesses by Ken Starr’s investigation.

tiger66: Sec. 600.3 “The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the U.S. Government.”

Garland appointed Weiss under 28 USC §§ 509, 510, 515; not under 28 CFR § 600.3.

Paddy M: Words on a piece of paper are meaningless when communists are in charge.

It’s the same statute used by the Trump administration to appoint Durham, who was acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut at the time.

More particularly, this is exactly how everyone was told it would work. Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, would ask for and receive Special Counsel authority if and when he needed it. The aborted plea deal with Hunter Biden included a waiver of jurisdiction. However, to go to trial, Weiss will need to bring charges in D.C. or California, so it will require the additional authority, which was granted.

Garland – far worse than Holder.
