Joe Biden empowered Attorney General Merrick Garland to go after his political opponents.
And Garland was eager to do it.
Now Garland might’ve created a massive headache for the Bidens.
Attorney General Merrick Garland is no friend of the Republicans after he was denied a confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court.
Since assuming his role, Garland has gone after Democrats’ political enemies, including parents protesting at school board meetings.
But more troubling, Garland seemingly intervened to protect Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden from serious criminal charges regarding Hunter’s foreign business dealings.
Garland recently gave U.S. Attorney David Weiss Special Counsel status to investigate Hunter Biden’s alleged crimes, the same Weiss who allowed the statute of limitations to run out on serious tax charges against Hunter.
Weiss also tried to cut a sweetheart deal with Hunter’s lawyer that was ultimately blown up by a shrewd judge.
And Garland’s actions could backfire.
Appearance of fishy business at Garland’s DOJ, the Office of Special Counsel, and NARA called out by a renowned legal scholar.
Liberal legal analyst Jonathan Turley said that his actions could force the Republicans to open an impeachment inquiry.
Turley wrote, “Even some liberal pundits are mystified by these moves and why Garland would not simply appoint someone in compliance with the regulations who could guarantee a new and full investigation. So Weiss is now investigating crimes that continue to dwindle in number due to the long delays in prosecution. It is like waiting for winter to go goose hunting in Canada, long after the geese have flown South…Now…Congress will have a more difficult time getting answers out of Weiss because he can claim he is engaged in an ongoing special counsel investigation, and he can use the eventual special counsel report as much to defend his own actions as to detail any potential crimes.”
Weiss also has previous ties to the Bidens in his capacity as U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware.
USA David Weiss may be the least qualified, most compromised person to serve as special counsel in faux investigation and non-prosecution of Hunter Biden, but that suits AG Merrick Garland's purposes just fine.

Turley continued, “[T]he Biden administration still is resisting the sharing of information with the House, including records held by the National Archives. For months, I have discussed a potential impeachment of the president with Republican House members and have encouraged them not to repeat the abuses of House Democrats in the use of ‘snap impeachments’ and the discarding of fact hearings in the House Judiciary Committee. Garland, however, has effectively forced their hands.”
So Garland’s attempts at shielding Hunter could end up taking down Joe.
Turley added, “With the investigative impediments created by the Weiss appointment and by Garland’s refusal to expressly extend the special counsel’s mandate to the allegations of Biden family influence-peddling, there is little choice but to commence an impeachment inquiry. The authority of the House is at its apex when carrying out its duties under the impeachment clause.”
The Bidens are not even close to being out of hot water.
