Republicans denounce ‘cover-up’ of Hunter Biden special counsel appointment: ‘Something is not right’ |

Republican lawmakers chimed in after Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday appointed a special counsel to investigate first-born son Hunter Biden.

Senior GOP lawmakers blasted Garland’s appointment of U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who led the prosecution in Hunter Biden’s gun and tax charges, to lead the special counsel’s investigation .

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., called Garland’s announcement “part of the Justice Department’s efforts to try to cover up the Biden family in light of [House Oversight Republicans’] mounting evidence of President Biden’s role in his family’s schemes to sell “the brand” for millions of dollars to foreign nationals.”

Weiss is the federal prosecutor who has investigated the first son’s business dealings and filed charges against him in Delaware. His appointment as special counsel could signal that, contrary to claims by Biden’s defense lawyers, the Justice Department’s investigation into President Biden’s son is far from over.
