There seems to be yet another irregularity in how the Hunter Biden investigation was handled, according to yet another DOJ official who has come forward during a committee hearing.
Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Stuart Goldberg told the House Judiciary Committee that Hunter’s case was getting some extra attention.
This would seem to go against previous statements from Attorney General Merrick Garland on this matter.
Goldberg stated that the Hunter Biden investigation was considered a “significant” case and had “closer supervision than other, more run-of-the-mill cases.”
Justice Department lawyers would not allow Goldberg to go into greater detail on the matter, so there goes that transparency were are always hearing about.
Goldberg also stated that cases such as this would require an “ultimate sign-off,” which goes directly against testimony from Garland.
Whistleblower testimony was confirmed by Goldberg as well, which is not good news for Garland, who has been under a microscope over this probe and this alleged protecting of Hunter and Joe Biden on the matter.
In fact, the whistleblower testimony of IRS supervisory special agent Gary Shapley and special agent Joseph Ziegler has not been corroborated by multiple officials, so there is absolutely no doubt that there was interference by the higher powers to derail that investigation.
Even with mounting evidence, both Special Counsel Weiss and Garland maintain that Weiss always had “ultimate authority” in how this case was being handled and to pursue charges against Hunter Biden.
He may have had that authority, but I would be willing to bet dollars to donuts that Weiss was told not to exercise that authority by Garland.
This is all part of the impeachment inquiry being held by Republicans to decide if they have enough evidence to pursue impeachment against Joe Biden for benefitting from his son’s foreign business relationships.
