Every week brings new damning evidence that cements the bribery and influence peddling case against Joe Biden.  At the same time, facts are emerging of just how his Department of Justice worked overtime to shut down the prosecution of Hunter Biden to protect his father and preserve his presidency.

Instead of aggressively pursuing crimes that were clearly committed, Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss slyly operated behind the scenes as the Bidens’ personal defense attorney.  He spent five years scuppering the investigation and burying the incriminating evidence of historic graft that enriched the Biden family beyond imagination.  They banked tens of millions of dollars from America’s foreign adversaries by exploiting the power of his office as vice president to sell access to Joe and promises of influence.  The Bidens filled a Brinks truck worth of cash from Ukraine, China, Russia, Romania, Kazakhstan, and other countries over which the VP exerted foreign policy authority.

Internal documents show that Weiss was so determined to shield Joe Biden that the U.S. Attorney planned to let Hunter skate on dozens of crimes “without requiring a guilty plea on any charges.”  The protection racket was working splendidly until a funny thing happened on the way to the felony cemetery.   Two IRS Whistleblowers stepped forward and began exposing Weiss’s chicanery.  Gary Shapley and Josepha Ziegler informed Congress of the U.S. Attorney’s constant political interference and preferential treatment by slow-walking, suppressing, and diverting the case.  They cited specific examples.

Someone is lying, either Weiss or Garland or both.  It is certainly not the whistleblowers.

Weiss purposefully allowed the statutes of limitations to expire on many of the most egregious crimes, tipped off Hunter’s lawyers about a surprise interview of their client, divulged privileged information to those same attorneys, halted the execution of planned search warrants despite probable cause, forbid any questions about Joe Biden’s active involvement in his son’s corrupt schemes, refused to follow the immense paper trail of overseas payola, overlooked compelling evidence of money laundering and racketeering, and tore up the written agreement by both investigators and prosecutors to bring six felony charges against Hunter.

Once Shapley and Ziegler blew the whistle, Weiss was caught dead to rights.  He had to do something to save face.  So, he scrambled to conjured up a couple of pathetic tax misdemeanors and a watered down gun charge that would allow Hunter to escape jail time in a ludicrous plea deal that would end the burgeoning case.

But there is more to the story.

Late last year, Hunter Biden’s lawyers penned a 32-page letter to Weiss threatening to call Joe Biden as a witness for the defense if any serious charges were brought against the president’s son.  “This of all cases justifies neither the spectacle of a sitting President testifying at a criminal trial nor the potential for a resulting Constitutional crisis,” wrote Hunter’s lawyer Chris Clark.  Fearful that his efforts to protect the president would evaporate, the U.S. Attorney’s resolved to ignore all the felonies and bring no charges whatsoever.

Of course, when the whistleblowers outted Weiss’s skullduggery, he invented the infamous “sweetheart deal” that no other U.S. citizen would ever receive.  It’s implosion in court further sullied the U.S. Attorney’s already tattered reputation and left the entire investigation in limbo.  That’s when Attorney General Merrick Garland moved to consolidate Weiss’s power by naming him special counsel with unfettered authority to do as he pleases.

As I’ve noted in earlier columns, Weiss is the last person on earth who should be special counsel.  He is hopelessly biased in favor of the Bidens which is exactly why Garland acted as he did.  In making the appointment, the AG blatantly defied federal regulations that require an independent person “outside the government” to conduct the investigation and any prosecutions.

So, the fix is in to further protect Joe and Hunter Biden.  Don’t expect Weiss to do anything.  He will pretend to investigate while even more statutes of limitations lapse, the probe will drag on in perpetuity, and incriminating evidence will vanish into a black hole.

Granted, it’s conceivable that Weiss may experience an epiphany and decide to do the right thing.  But, as I’ve said before, I’d rather bet on a lame horse.

In the meantime, the House Oversight Committee is doing excellent work uncovering the Biden family corruption.  As for the mainstream media that has long behaved as Biden apologists offering up vacuous excuses for the president and his son, some are now taking the scandal seriously by beginning to dig into the wealth of incriminating evidence.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who is the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, this week issued subpoenas to IRS investigators and DOJ officials who have direct knowledge of a pivotal meeting on October 7, 2022 in which David Weiss allegedly claimed he was prevented from bringing charges against Hunter Biden and was not the final authority on such matters, which contradicts what Merrick Garland said in his congressional testimony.

Someone is lying, either Weiss or Garland or both.  It is certainly not the whistleblowers.
