Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss as a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden. The news comes two weeks after Biden’s plea deal, previously handed down by Weiss’ office, fell apart in federal court after a judge discovered a broad immunity clause for future charges buried in the agreement — including felony violations of the Foreign Agent Registration Act.
Previously Weiss claimed he had all the tools and independence necessary to investigate Hunter Biden without Special Counsel designation. After five years of investigation, Weiss charged Hunter Biden with two misdemeanors and a diversion program for the illegal possession of a firearm, which is always a felony offense.
