Hunter Biden to Be Indicted by Special Counsel Weiss This Month

According to a recent court filing, David Weiss, the Special Counsel is close to indicting Hunter Biden.

The court filing by Weiss states that “the Speedy Trial Act” requires the Government to obtain an indictment from a grand jury at the latest Friday, Sept. 29, 2023. The Government intends to seek an indictment before that date.

Department of Justice prosecutors reached a controversial plea deal on Hunter Biden’s gun possession charges, which would have given him immunity from prosecution if he met specific conditions within a 24-month period. This plea agreement ultimately failed.

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as Special Counsel last month, a move that was highly controversial as it was seen as a calculated maneuver aimed at obstructing the ongoing probe by the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee. House Republicans not only have brought to light financial documents implicating the Bidens, but they have also collected damning testimony from witnesses.

Weiss’s selection also violated Department of Justice rules. According to 28 CFR SS 6000.3, a Special Counsel must be a lawyer who has “integrity and impartiality in decision-making” and “shall be chosen from outside of the United States Government.” Weiss’s impartiality was already questioned after the sweetheart deal he gave Hunter Biden, which would have granted him broad immunity. He also does not come from outside government. Garland wanted him to be special counsel so badly that he flouted DOJ regulations.

Weiss had been accused previously of botching the Hunter Biden case in order to protect Joe Biden. Andrew McCarthy, writing for National Review, explained that in our adversarial system, this is the way prosecutors protect the public’s interest in equal treatment and the rule of the law. Hunter was not represented by a second group of lawyers, but rather by Weiss and Biden’s DOJ. Weiss, a lawyer who is in a conflict of interest with the Justice Department, sought to protect and serve the president. This meant, on the surface at least, protecting Hunter from any real criminal prosecution. It was the main goal to divert the “ongoing investigation” away from Hunter’s beloved old dad.

How did Weiss get from being an accomplice to Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deal to the point where he was on the verge of indicting Biden? Weiss, is he trying to restore his image? Was he given the freedom to act as a Special Counsel that he had not before? Is this a bait-and-switch?

I don’t really know what to believe, but I doubt Hunter will be charged unless something bizarre happens.
