AG Garland Testifies Concerning Hunter Biden Special Counsel

Attorney General Merrick Garland testified before a House committee this week, claiming U.S. attorney David Weis had full authority over the Hunter Biden investigation.

Garland told the House Judiciary Committee that he did not talk details with Weiss over the investigation.

"I promised the Senate that I would not interfere… I would not influence the investigation," Garland said. "I do not intend to discuss internal Justice Department deliberations, whether or not I had them."

"Garland repeatedly said during the first hours of his testimony that he never had discussions with Weiss about the investigation, and said the prosecutor had the necessary tools to continue his years-long probe into President Biden’s son," Fox News reported.

Garland also downplayed his role in connection with President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

"Our job is not to take orders from the president, from Congress, or from anyone else, about who or what to criminally investigate," Garland stated, according to Reuters.

"I am not the president’s lawyer. I will add I am not Congress’s prosecutor. The Justice Department works for the American people," he continued.

The testimony comes just one week after the House launched an impeachment inquiry against the president related to allegations of bribery in international business deals.

The alleged deals included his son Hunter Biden during the years the president served as vice president under then-President Barack Obama.

The testimony may attempt to dismiss his role, but Garland's leadership during Hunter Biden's laptop scandal and other concerning issues remain areas of question that continue to receive scrutiny from conservative lawmakers.
