Hunter Biden Expects Special Counsel to Find ‘No New Evidence’

Attorney General Merrick Garland recently granted special counsel status to David Weiss, the federal prosecutor overseeing the long-running investigations into Hunter Biden’s business dealings and personal conduct. In response, Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, has indicated that he does not anticipate any new evidence surfacing against his client.
Hunter Biden was on the brink of a plea deal involving misdemeanor tax charges and a diversion agreement for a felony gun charge. However, the deal faced obstacles during a federal court hearing, leading to the judge’s refusal to approve it in Delaware.
Lowell presented three potential reasons for the deal’s collapse during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” He suggested that unclear wording, miscommunication, or a change of perspective by the prosecutors might have contributed to the situation. Lowell also hinted at the possibility that external factors, such as political pressure, played a role in the prosecutors’ decision to backtrack on the deal.
Having represented Hunter Biden throughout the extensive investigations, Lowell expressed confidence that the conclusion reached on July 26th, involving two tax misdemeanors and a diverted gun charge, remains valid. He noted that David Weiss, despite his change in title to special counsel, has been consistently involved in the case for five years. Lowell emphasized that if there are any deviations from the existing conclusions, questions should be raised about the factors influencing the process, rather than the evidence and legal aspects.
