The deep ties to the coverup for Hunter Biden have just gone further into the deep state in this country.
Reports are now surfacing that a top official at the Department of Justice has ties to Hunter Biden’s attorney.
Nicholas McQuaid, the acting head of the Justice Department’s criminal division, was a law partner with Chris Clark.
Both worked at the law firm of New York-based firm Latham & Watkins.
Conflict of Interest
So, how can the DOJ possibly be tasked with prosecuting someone when one of the top officials in the department has ties to the defendant’s attorney?
Does anyone seriously believe that information would not be leaked to the defense team in such as case?
It is not helping the situation that the White House and Department of Justice continue to dodge questions on this matter.
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) stated, “It’s yet another abject failure of accountability in a long list.
“If Republicans retake a majority in the Senate, the department can expect additional pressure and process from me as chairman [of the Judiciary Committee ] and from my colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“We’d be seeking information from dozens of individuals, and empowered by a committee majority — we’d no longer just be asking.”
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) has sent five letters to the DOJ on this subject.
His office stated, “Thus far DOJ refuses to provide responses to Sen. Johnson’s questions/requests.”
The only response the media has received on this front was that McQuaid signed Biden’s “ethics pledge” that stated he agreed to “not for a period of 2 years from the date of my appointment participate in any particular matter involving specific parties that is directly and substantially related to my former employer or former clients, including regulations and contracts.”
