Lead Investigator in Hunter Biden Case Paused Probe to Avoid Alerting Public Ahead of Election

Center for Strategic and International Studies via Flickr

The federal prosecutor leading the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes waited until after the 2020 election to obtain warrants. while U.S. Attorney David Weiss started his investigation in 2018 but ultimately waited to obtain the warrants over fear the investigation would become politicized.

Fox News reports:

“It was a close call,” one anonymous person who is familiar with the investigation told the outlet. “That case has way more credibility now.”

Weiss is a Republican who was appointed to his position on a permanent basis by former President Donald Trump in 2018 on the recommendation of Delaware’s two Democratic senators.

Weiss began investigating Biden’s business dealings with China and Ukraine in 2018, as well as possible money laundering. He then turned his attention to whether Biden paid taxes on all of his income, Politico reported.

By the time investigators were ready to issue grand jury subpoenas and search warrants, election season was in full swing and Weiss reportedly feared the public knowing about the investigation and it would become politicized.

During the 2020 campaign, The New York Post posted a bombshell story about Hunter Biden’s laptop which revealed his lucrative business deals in Ukraine while his father was Vice President. However, the story was widely censored and ignored by major networks and Democrats attempted to claim it was Russian collusion.

Sounds more like this will remain a politicized, slow walk, “go nowhere” investigation.

Whatever happened to Durham? Is he still alive or did he move into O’Biden’s basement?

I don’t believe Durham ever existed. Have you ever seen him on a news show or seen him walking out of the DOJ or anywhere? His supposed investigation should have shown some results or issued press comments after all this time. I believe the Durham investigation is a complete lie of the deep state(Rep&Dems) to placate conservatives into the belief that the crimes of Dems and deep state employees of the Federal govt. will be prosecuted.

His bio states that he was “asked” by the Biden administration to stay on as a U,S, Attorney…..I guess he gave Beijing Biden assurances that it will be a slow walked investigation of Hunter until it all blows over.

Remove him for putting politics ahead of the law. It might even be a criminal offense to do so. Isn’t it akin to evidence tampering?

Another thing to have to worry about since Hunter is not a politician is the statute of limitation time limit on the case as well so he is intentionally trying to stall the clock for Joe to make sure his son doesn’t have to do the time for the Biden family crime!

Yeah as he bragged about it yet nothing at all done. He admitted to it even is worse part yet still becomes a President through more and more fraud. It will come out and people will go straight to a jail cell near you and me. Has to happen and if not then we are just like China as a bunch of sheep with wool puled over our eyes like what they do to their stupid people who are dumb enough to put up with it. America won’t no way or we go to war before Biden puts us in one as all Countries just see a Demented old fart.

It’s already out there, david, for all the world to see! And yet, no actions being taken. We live in a world where the only rule/law the demented Democrats follow is one of their own making: “Do as I say and not as I do; freedom for me but not for thee!” And I pray it doesn’t have to go that far, but war just may be the only answer if we want to save America and our freedom! 🙁

Most of the Federal systems are corrupt as hell. President Trump was starting to get them straightened out and that is why these slugs did everything they could to get rid of President Trump. Unfortunately, their corruption is so deep that they stole the election. And sadly, they will also be stealing all future elections. The system is BROKE.

What President Trump did not know was how deep the water in the swamp really was. The more he exposed the more nervous the swamp creatures from BOTH parties became. He found out the hard way, that dishonesty is a common trait of many of those in Washington both representatives and senators. The good news is that the creatures have exposed their loyalties, and it is NOT to the American people. More house-cleaning is required.

Once the NY Post announced the story, it immediately became political. The prosecutor should have made Americans aware of the investigation as soon as the Post published it’s first story. Especially after that story was censored by every other media outlet and all social media platforms. Now, tell me that wasn’t political in protecting a family of corrupt criminals who should never have been allowed to step foot in the White House.

Do you really think Hunter Biden’s FBI investigation is going to be any different then Hillary Clinton’s FBI investigation about all her subpoenaed e-mails that she destroyed after receiving the subpoena?

Politics rule the FBI, because they are all Democrats, and everyone knows that Democrats are hypocrites and liars, that are completely lacking in honesty, integrity, and honor, that can’t even spell morals, let alone posses any.

Yeah, there are some Americans that know what the FBI has become, I just wonder how they are able to corrupt all their agents? It must be during their intensive training, because there aren’t any whistleblowers, and we’ve learned that the FBI commonly and daily break our laws, even getting caught lying under oath when they are officially interviewed.

Hey Sally Kent,
Stop using Democratic!
It’s Democrat Senators, not Democratic Senators.
I’m tired of you so called Journalists saying, Democratic. It’s not Democratic, it’s Democrat. Democrat Representative, Democrat Senator, Democrat Party. Get the idea? Not Democratic this or Democratic that. There is no Democratic Party, it’s Democrat Party. There is nothing Democratic about Democrats. You never see the word Republicanite used to describe Republicans or the party. So stop saying Democratic.

It’s a crime that the current mainstream news media will not give any details on all the Biden’s corruption! Their family has been laundering illegal funds for years. And it’s no secret among a large number of America news media. But they say nothing. There must be a huge number of Americans who have sold-out their nation. Making them, “Bought-Off Whores!”

This is way Americans hate the swamp, corruption, protection of swamp creatures even if they screw the tax payors brains out, Hunter lied on federal forms ,traveled on government planes at the tax payor expense, cut private deal for the Biden family an they were worried this corruption might interfere with an already corrupt election process. David Weise should be charged with obstruction of justice for his decision.

One has to wonder if the same courtesy would have been extended to the Trump’s family if they were investigating Don jr……YEAH RIGHT !

I feel like a cancer has taken over our government in order to destroy America for everything that we stands proud of . And they are determined to do this evil weather we the people like it or not. I just don’t believe that our armed forces which is made up of we the people will let this small group of traitors get away with taking over our country. I do believe that when everything comes to a head and all those involved in this take over are punished severely that Peace will come to America once again.
