Airwaves Heating Up After Garland Appoints Special Counsel for Hunter’s Case – Watch

The prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden was appointed to special counsel status last week, and various figures surrounding the politically-explosive inquiry are making their concerns known.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced at the end of last week that he had granted a request by Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss to be appointed special counsel, a designation that will allow the prosecutor to more easily bring charges outside of his district. Garland said he made the decision after considering the “extraordinary circumstances” of the case and “concluded that it is in the public interest.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who has spearheaded the Biden-focused investigative effort in Congress, said “the Biden Justice Department is trying to stonewall congressional oversight as we have presented evidence to the American people about the Biden family’s corruption.”

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo that the special counsel appointment elevates the need for an impeachment inquiry against the president.

“It makes it more important because they will have subpoena power if they do the impeachment inquiry,” Blackburn said. “And I think everyone knows David Weiss is not a prosecutor. He’s not a special counsel. He is a collaborator.”

“If this special counsel is truly independent — even though he failed to bring proper charges after a four year investigation and he appears to be trying to move the case to a more Democrat-friendly venue — he will quickly conclude that Joe Biden, his troubled son Hunter, and their enablers, including the media … should face the required consequences,” an unnamed spokesperson said.

White House adviser Steve Benjamin declined to make any comment about the special appointment during a weekend appearance on MSNBC —sticking to the stated view that the criminal case is a personal matter for Hunter Biden.
