Attorney denies claims he was told not to charge Hunter Biden

 July 11, 2023

A U.S. attorney is denying claims that he was blocked from charging first son Hunter Biden with crimes.

U.S. Attorney David Weiss made the remarks in a letter shared with the Senate Judiciary Committee's ranking member Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

The letter

“To clarify an apparent misperception and to avoid future confusion, I wish to make one point clear: in this case, I have not requested Special Counsel designation pursuant to 28 CFR § 600 et seq,” Weiss wrote.

“Rather, I had discussions with Departmental officials regarding potential appointment under 28 U.S.C. § 515, which would have allowed me to file charges in a district outside my own without the partnership of the local U.S. Attorney.
he added.

The news also comes as Hunter Biden's plea bargain deal over two tax charges and one gun charge may be delayed over pushback from Republicans.

“On July 26 a Delaware federal judge is set to decide whether to accept the First Son’s plea deal with prosecutors over two tax misdemeanors," the Daily Mail reported.

"Republican lawmakers are calling for Judge Maryellen Noreika to toss out the ‘slap on the wrist’ and ‘sweetheart’ deal entirely, after whistleblowers from the IRS who investigated Hunter for five years say that he could instead have been charged with a raft of more serious tax and corruption crimes. Now, a legal filing reveals the DoJ is considering delaying the finalizing of the plea deal amid the opprobrium," it added.

"Nearly a dozen current and former officials serving in the White House and Biden administration, including the president's national security adviser and the secretary of state, have extensive ties to Hunter Biden, who is accused by Republicans of selling access to his father, dating back over a decade," Fox News revealed this week.

"A Fox News Digital analysis reveals the extent of Hunter's potential reach in the White House, while the embattled first son is expected to make his first court appearance on July 26 for two alleged misdemeanor tax violations and a felony gun charge," it added.

The court appearance may now be delayed as even worse charges could face the president's son.

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden continues to travel with the president, appearing to show no concern over his future outcome in the case.
