Hunter Biden’s legal team has been scrambling this week to get Biden a new deal that grants him immunity. However, CELEB sources have learned all deals presented so far have been rejected. Biden had an original deal set that gave him immunity to all other illegal activities, but that one was killed after public backlash.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland has announced the appointment of a special counsel with enhanced powers to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. The move comes after a plea deal involving tax and gun charges against Hunter Biden collapsed earlier this month.
David Weiss, the federal prosecutor who has already filed criminal charges in the case, will be leading the investigation. The decision was made following a request by Weiss and will provide him with additional resources to delve into the matter more comprehensively, including the potential to bring forth additional charges beyond Delaware, where the case is based.
Merrick Garland highlighted the move’s commitment to both independence and accountability in sensitive matters during a news conference at the Department of Justice. He confirmed that the special counsel would produce a report upon completing the investigation, with the justice department intending to make it as public as possible.
Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Chris Clark, expressed confidence that the ongoing legal proceedings would eventually reach a resolution. Clark emphasized that the investigation has spanned five years already. A second and third attempt for a deal has faltered.
The case gained momentum when David Weiss, appointed by former President Donald Trump in 2018, opened an investigation into allegations of criminal conduct by Hunter Biden in 2019. The charges against Hunter Biden include misdemeanor tax offenses and an additional felony charge for possessing a firearm while allegedly addicted to and using illegal drugs.
The breakdown of the initial plea deal prompted new negotiations between Hunter Biden and prosecutors. Weiss’s team now expects the case to proceed to trial, possibly resulting in more serious charges in Washington DC or California.
Republicans have been vocal about their desire for Hunter Biden to face further criminal charges, along with allegations that he has financially benefited from his son’s business dealings in Ukraine and China.
