Pence 'can't relate' to Biden regarding the appointment of Hunter as special counsel

Former Vice President Mike Pence says that he "can't relate" to President Joe Biden in regard to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his son, as Fox News reported.

According to the former vice president, he has no frame of reference for the Hunter Biden investigation, as his own son was "defending this country" while he was serving in the White House during the Trump administration.

The former vice president and current 2024 presidential candidate made the statement on Friday saying that he "can't relate" to Biden, whose son is the subject of a special counsel probe.

The Candidate's Comments

"I just heard news that the appointment of the special counsel in the matter involving President Biden's son Hunter. To be honest with you, I can't relate to what his son was doing when he was vice president," Pence stated.

"When I was vice president, my son was flying an F-35 for the Marine Corps defending this country," Pence said during a press gaggle at the Iowa State Fair.

"But I think it's about time that we saw the appointment of a special counsel to get to the bottom of not only what Hunter Biden was doing, but what the Biden family was doing. The American people deserve answers, and I welcome the appointment," he added.

The Special Counsel Appointment

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation, as well as in any other matters that originated from or may arise from this investigation.

Weiss is the federal prosecutor who conducted an investigation into Hunter Biden's business dealings and filed charges against him in Delaware.

His appointment as special counsel indicates that, contrary to the claims of Hunter's defense attorneys, the Department of Justice investigation into the son of President Biden is not complete.

Other Republicans have criticized Garland's appointment of Weiss, who headed the prosecution in Hunter Biden's tax and gun charges, to lead the special counsel investigation.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, (R-KY), characterized Garland's announcement as "part of the Justice Department's efforts to attempt a Biden family coverup in light of [House Oversight Republicans'] mounting evidence of President Biden's role in his family's schemes to sell 'the brand' to foreigners for millions of dollars."

Comer said Garland's "move is really about" the DOJ "trying to stonewall congressional oversight as we have presented evidence to the American people about the Biden family's corruption."
