David Weiss named special counsel in Hunter Biden probe


U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday named David Weiss as a special counsel in the investigation into President Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

Weiss is the U.S. attorney in Delaware. Speaking at the Justice Department, Garland said that Weiss informed him that the probe had “reached a stage at which he should continue his work as a special counsel,” and asked to be appointed.

The move deepens the investigation into Hunter Biden ahead of the 2024 presidential election, and comes as the Justice Department is also investigating President Biden’s main 2024 rival, Donald Trump.

Hunter Biden’s conduct, including foreign business dealings and taxes, has been under scrutiny. In late July, the younger Biden’s plea deal on two tax charges fell apart after the federal judge hearing his case expressed concern over a related agreement on a more serious gun-possession charge.
