There is a buzz going on about the appointment of David Weiss as the special counsel for the Hunter Biden investigation.
As it turns out, the appointment may be in direct violation of the Department of Justice guidelines.
But, in the process of outing Weiss, these people may have also created a problem regarding the John Durham probe into Russian collusion, reports Just the News.
The DOJ rule states: "An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decision-making, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies.
"The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government."
David Weiss was the Delaware U.S. Attorney when appointed as special counsel, so he was clearly an employee of the United States Government.
Attorney and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz stated, "Someone else, without a doubt, would have followed the regulations of the department, which [is to] say that the person has to be from outside the government.
"I surely wouldn't have appointed a man from Delaware, where there's a lot of home cooking that goes on -- the Bidens live in Delaware -- who made a sweetheart deal that I predicted on your show would not be accepted. And he's going to want to justify that sweetheart deal. So, he's not going to want to admit that he did anything wrong."
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett added, "I see this as a farce, more cover-up and corruption by Merrick Garland, and he's covering his own behind.
"I mean, the Attorney General is not allowed to appoint David Weiss as Special Counsel under federal regulations, and I have them right here in front of me, CFR 600.3. The Attorney General can only appoint somebody, quote, 'outside' the government."
So, here is the thing…
When John Durham was appointed as the special counsel, he was the U.S. Attorney for Connecticut, but nobody brought up this rule at the time, which I find curious, especially since Trump was in office at the time.
I would have thought Democrats would have jumped all over this, or perhaps they just did not know the rule.
The real problem I have with Weiss, however, is the fact that he was part of the team that negotiated that ridiculous plea deal for Hunter, giving him immunity on all future charges.
If Weiss was ready to look past those possible charges before, why would anything think that he would bring any serious charges against Hunter now that he has the case?
Let me just say one name, then tell me how fair this justice system is right now… Paul Manafort.
Among the charges that Manafort was found guilty of were two counts of bank fraud, five counts of tax fraud, and one count of failing to declare a foreign bank account, reported NPR.
Let's also not forget that the DOJ had charged Manafort with failure to register as a foreign agent, something else Hunter Biden has been accused of doing.
The entire government system is corrupt, my friends, every branch, from top to bottom.
