Biden ignores press questions while departing WH following Hunter Biden special counsel appointment

After the appointment of a special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation, Vice President Biden walked out of the White House while ignoring questions from the press.

On Friday, as he was leaving the White House for Delaware, Biden was confronted by shouted questions from members of the press,

This came shortly after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel in the investigation of his son, Hunter Biden, as Fox News reported.

Reporters were seen in a video taken by a reporter for the New York Post named Steven Nelson shouting questions about the appointment of the special counsel, the president's alleged involvement in Hunter's overseas business activities, and whether or not the president expected to be impeached by the House of Representatives.

The Interaction

At one point, Biden had the appearance of smiling, but he kept on walking by them and towards Marine One.

Since the appointment of the special counsel, Biden, who is famously reluctant to give interviews to the media, has not responded to a single question from the press.

Garland made the announcement earlier in the day that U.S. Attorney David Weiss would be taking on the role of special counsel in the investigation into Hunter Biden, as well as any other concerns that have arisen or may emerge from that inquiry.

Weiss is the federal prosecutor who is responsible for the investigation into Hunter's business operations and the filing of charges against Hunter in the state of Delaware.

His nomination as special counsel suggests that the investigation into Hunter Biden, who is the son of Vice President Joe Biden, is not yet complete, despite the assertions made by Hunter's defense attorneys.

Hunter Biden's Case Details

On Friday, Garland stated unequivocally that the inquiry has not been closed. Weiss will act as special counsel, according to the Justice Department, "for the ongoing investigation and prosecutions referenced and described in United States v. Robert Hunter Biden, as well as for any other matters that arose or may arise from that investigation." This information was provided in a news release.

This statement does not rule out the prospect that additional members of the Biden family, including former Vice President Joe Biden, could be investigated for their possible involvement in this matter.

A spokesperson from the Department of Justice declined to comment earlier in the day when asked whether or not former Vice President Joe Biden is being probed as part of this new phase of inquiry.
