After his inauguration, President Joe Biden asked all U.S. Attorneys for their resignations, except two: John Durham and David Weiss.
Durham is, of course, the special counsel appointed by former U.S. Attorney General William Barr to review government spying and investigation of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Less well-known is the U.S. Attorney for Delaware whom President Joe Biden retained because of his investigation into possible criminal acts committed by Hunter Biden. Joe Biden reportedly faced political pressure to allow the Trump-appointed attorney to continue his work.
Between his father’s election victory and inaugural, Hunter Biden announced he was under federal investigation for tax-related issues. It was later learned the FBI began investigating Biden in 2018. The absence of updates from the Department of Justice had convinced many that the FBI would treat him as generously as Hillary Clinton was.
The alleged investigation of the president’s son seemed to progress slower than molasses in January while observers waited for word about the case.
Neither the DOJ nor the U.S. Attorney for Delaware have issued any official update about their case against Biden. A report last week in The Washington Post cited sources who claim FBI agents believe they have enough evidence to criminally charge him. In addition to tax charges against him, Biden allegedly lied on a handgun purchase application.
In October 2018, Biden allegedly answered “no” to the purchase application question asking if he was “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”
A memoir, titled “Beautiful Things,” was published in March 2021. In his memoir, the president’s son details his long struggle with drugs, including during the time he bought the gun.
Hunter Biden attorney Chris Clark accused investigators of leaking information.
“It is a federal felony for a federal agent to leak information about a Grand Jury investigation such as this one,” Clark said in a statement. “Any agent you cite as a source in your article apparently has committed such a felony. We expect the Department of Justice will diligently investigate and prosecute such bad actors.”
Weiss has maintained his silence regarding the investigation.
