In a shocking turn of events, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan has revealed that the special counsel and Delaware U.S. Attorney investigating Hunter Biden did not have the full authority he requested back in 2022. It seems that Weiss didn’t receive special counsel authority until it was given to him by Congress over a year later. This revelation directly contradicts the testimony of Attorney General Merrick Garland and vindicates IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley.
According to Jordan, Weiss himself admitted that he had requested special attorney authority under Section 515 back in the spring of 2022 but was denied that request. He never had that authority throughout the time he was pretending to have it. It wasn’t until August of this year that he finally obtained the special counsel status when he requested it from the Attorney General. This raises serious questions about Weiss’s credibility and the legitimacy of his investigation into Hunter Biden.
Stuart Goldberg told us that the Hunter Biden case received “closer supervision” than most cases — and required high-level approval to bring charges.
Why not just treat Hunter like every other American?
What happened to equal treatment under the law?

Jordan further points to the testimony of Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart Goldberg, who stated that the Hunter Biden case received “closer supervision” than most cases and required high-level approval to bring charges. This raises the question of why Hunter Biden was being treated differently from every other American. Shouldn’t there be equal treatment under the law?
It seems that David Weiss knew all along that he didn’t have the authority to charge Hunter Biden, yet he continued to claim that he had “ultimate authority.” This lack of honesty and transparency is deeply concerning. It calls into question Weiss’s motives and the integrity of his investigation. How can we trust the conclusions of an investigation led by someone who was not forthright about their authority?
Furthermore, the testimony given by Goldberg contradicts Attorney General Merrick Garland’s previous claims that Weiss had “ultimate authority.” It’s clear that there is a disconnect between what the Attorney General stated and what actually transpired. This raises serious concerns about Garland’s credibility and integrity as well.
Overall, it is becoming increasingly evident that there were serious irregularities in the investigation into Hunter Biden. The denial of special counsel authority, the lack of honesty about authority, and the contradictions in testimony paint a picture of a biased and flawed investigation. It’s crucial that these issues are thoroughly investigated to ensure equal treatment under the law and to hold those accountable who may have obstructed justice in the process. The American people deserve answers, and they deserve a justice system that operates fairly and transparently.
