Appointment of David Weiss as Special Counsel Violates Federal Law

Republicans have been requesting a special counsel be appointed in the Hunter Biden case almost since it started.

Merrick Garland finally broke down and appointed a special counsel.

Only when he did it, he broke the law, but this is far more involved than just that little tidbit.

Breaking the Law

By rule, when a special counsel is appointed, it is supposed to be someone that is outside the United States Government.

When Garland appointed Weiss, he did not technically qualify because he is the U.S. Attorney for Delaware.

Harvard University law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz explained, "It's illegal. The regulation provides clearly that special counsel has to come from outside the government for good reason.

"What's so special about a special counsel is that he doesn't have to answer to the present administration, he's independent.

"But if you have somebody who serves at the pleasure of the attorney general, and obviously as the U.S. attorney serves his pleasures [as] part of the administration, that person shouldn't be serving.

"It's in clear violation of the regulation itself," reported Fox Business.

When Garland explained the appointment, he stated that it was Weiss that stated the work he had done should be moved to a special counsel, then he requested to be appointed.

Rep. James Comer (R-KY) immediately went off about this…

Now, we can cry to the high heavens about this, but remember that John Durham was serving as the U. S. Attorney for Connecticut when he was appointed special counsel for the Russian collusion investigation.

I am still trying to figure out why Democrats did not pitch a bitch when Durham was appointed due to this rule.
