Joe Biden just signed an executive order that could have serious implications for the Hunter Biden investigation.
The Washington Examiner reports:
An executive order from President Biden instructs all his appointees to sign a pledge to refrain from “improper interference” with any prosecutorial or investigative decisions at the Justice Department.
The new directive comes after Biden selected Judge Merrick Garland to be his nominee for attorney general and as Biden’s son, Hunter, is under a federal criminal investigation. There is also a criminal inquiry into the Trump-Russia investigation being conducted by special counsel John Durham.
Pledge or no, there is significant reason to be concerned about the Biden administration interfering in the investigation. The extreme politicization of the Obama administration was where Biden cut his teeth.
Not only that, but Biden has been violently opposed to any suggestion of improper dealings by Hunter.
As the Examiner notes:
“Biden talked about the investigation into his son during a December interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, when the host asked the former vice president what he will do about people who want to “use your adult son as a cudgel against you.”
“I have, we have, great confidence in our son,” Biden replied, adding, “I’m not concerned about any accusations that have been made against him.” Biden claimed that “it’s used to get to me” and “I think it’s kind of foul play.”
Biden said: “Don’t get me wrong, doesn’t mean I’m not angry — doesn’t mean I wasn’t angry, and it doesn’t mean if I were back in the days in high school I wouldn’t say, ‘Come here,’ you know, and go a round.”
How’s that for fake bravado?
