Can the Hunter Biden cover-up get any sleazier?
After sidelining the IRS investigative team working on the Hunter Biden case, the prosecutors working on it were also apparently sidelined.
Lawyers are questioning whether the Delaware attorney’s office kicked its most experienced prosecutors off the Hunter Biden case – just before it filed minor charges against the president’s son…
In a letter to a federal judge last week announcing the charges against Hunter, Delaware US Attorney David Weiss listed three different prosecutors who have apparently had no previous involvement in the case – leading to questions of a last-minute overhaul by the Delaware DoJ.
Under Weiss’s signature, the June 20 letter lists Assistant US Attorneys Leo Wise, Derek Hines, and Benjamin Wallace.
A lawyer for IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley, who ran the agency’s five-year criminal probe into the First Son, told DailyMail.com: ‘None of the three were involved in the underlying investigation during Gary’s tenure, to my knowledge.’
When an investigation sidelines two teams working on the case and then offers a sweetheart deal to the president’s son, that ought to ring as many alarm bells as a forest fire.
In more than 400 pages of transcribed sworn testimony published by the House Ways and Means Committee last month, the two IRS officials named several members of Weiss’s office who they worked with for years on the probe. But Wise, Hines and Wallace’s names are nowhere to be found in their testimony.
When you have to take this many years to work on a case that just leads to a slap on the wrist while few of the people who work on it show up at the finish line, that’s an indicator that something is very wrong either with the case or how it was resolved.
The media can only go on describing this as a case resolved by a ‘Trump-appointed’ prosecutor for so long.
