Hunter Biden investigation: Garland names David Weiss as special counsel |

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Friday that he has appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss to serve as special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation after Weiss asked to be given the authority this week.

“Having considered his request, as well as the extraordinary circumstances surrounding this matter, I have concluded that it is in the public interest to appoint him as special counsel,” Garland said.

Federal investigators in Delaware opened an investigation into Biden in 2019, according to Garland, and cited his laptop from a repair shop as part of it.

Garland noted that Weiss, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, began leading the investigation at the time based on allegations of “certain criminal conduct by, among others, Robert Hunter Biden.”
