WASHINGTON — Delaware US Attorney David Weiss told the House Judiciary Committee that he was refused “special attorney” status in his investigation of first son Hunter Biden, the panel’s chairman said Tuesday — though Weiss insisted that his decision-making was not impeded in the case.
Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told reporters that Weiss said he initially requested special attorney status in spring 2022 from the Justice Department’s principal assistant deputy attorney general, but was not granted it…
Jason Foster, founder of Empower Oversight, which represents Shapley, tweeted Tuesday: “So who denied Weiss special attorney charging authority, for what reason, and why didn’t he and Garland just say so when Congress asked? It went down just as IRS whistleblowers described.”
