House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer said in a statement that the appointment of a special counsel for Hunter Biden is a "coverup."
Comer shared the concern shortly after Attorney General Merrick Garland announced David Weiss as Hunter Biden's special counsel.

“This move by Attorney General Garland is part of the Justice Department’s efforts to attempt a Biden family coverup in light of the House Oversight Committee’s mounting evidence of President Joe Biden’s role in his family’s schemes selling ‘the brand’ for millions of dollars to foreign nationals," Comer wrote.
"The Justice Department’s misconduct and politicization in the Biden criminal investigation already allowed the statute of limitations to run with respect to egregious felonies committed by Hunter Biden," it added.

“We’re not going to stop. This is just another day in the office for us leading this investigation of Biden corruption. They have obstructed every step of the way. They’ve intimidated our witnesses,” Comer said during a Friday interview with Laura Ingraham.
“I don’t think we need any more evidence to show that the Department of Justice is trying to obstruct our investigation. I think Merrick Garland made that argument for us today,” he added.
Republicans argue that Weiss serving as special counsel will stop the Delaware attorney from disclosing information about the Hunter Biden investigation before the Oversight Committee.
Comer remains undeterred, however, and has vowed to continue his efforts to reveal the truth about Hunter Biden's bribery efforts.
The allegations also include other Biden family members, including President Joe Biden, over events that occurred when he served as vice president.
The new move by the Department of Justice seems clearly political in the latest effort by the Biden administration to cover up Hunter Biden's past.
