Report: Federal prosecutor put brakes on Hunter Biden probe ahead of 2020 election

According to a new report from Politico, a federal prosecutor in Delaware made what many now view as a highly controversial decision to temporarily put the brakes on a criminal probe of Hunter Biden ahead of the 2020 election in order to prevent information about it from making its way in to the public sphere and potentially impacting the outcome.

The outlet reports that U.S. Attorney David Weiss, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, delayed taking any steps to secure search warrants or to issue grand jury subpoenas in an effort not to “alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election.”

A person close to the discussions at the time told Politico that “concerns about affecting the presidential election loomed large when Weiss entertained arguments about advancing the probe,” and the top prosecutor eventually agreed with Department of Justice officials who suggested it was better to remain cautious and not press on with the probe until the election was concluded.

As Breitbart noted, it was back in 2018 that Weiss’ office began probing the son of now-President Joe Biden after receiving a number of leads that included information related to his foreign business dealings.

Though the investigations initially focused on the possibility of money laundering as well as potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, scrutiny eventually turned toward whether the younger Biden engaged in criminal violations of federal tax law.

That Hunter Biden was the subject of a criminal investigation in Delaware is fact which did not make its way into the public arena until his father had been declared the victor in the presidential contest. It was only then that a statement was released by Hunter acknowledging – yet downplaying – the existence of the probe he asserted was centered on tax issues alone.

Former President Donald Trump and his supporters have long blasted the Justice Department’s actions with regard to Hunter Biden, often citing the fact that a laptop computer purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden which was abandoned at a Delaware repair shop had been in the FBI’s possession since 2019, as the New York Post famously reported last fall.

Just prior to the 2020 election, the Post detailed a cache of emails gathered from that very laptop which seem to connect Joe Biden to his son’s questionable business endeavors in Ukraine as well as in China. Notably, Hunter Biden himself has never disputed the authenticity of the apparently incriminating information contained on the computer, which even he has admitted could “certainly” be his.

Despite the fact that a number of Republicans have called for the appointment of a special prosecutor to conduct the now-resumed probe of the president’s son, those demands have gone unheeded, and with Joe Biden sitting in the Oval Office, it is easy to acquire the sinking suspicion that Hunter Biden’s catalogue of misdeeds will continue to go unpunished.

I wish someone would start a petition to speed up the prob’s into the Biden crime family. We need to get Joe and his crooked cohorts out of office. Harris to be gone as well. I’d bet there would be millions of people to sign that petition .We would not be able to correct all the bad policies Joe implemented ,but we could stop any more bad and even dangerous moves on the part of the democratic party. By 2024 this nation will be doomed. Vary important, make that petition known to us to be signed by any and all people that think we are in trouble NOW.

It seems to me that info on the Biden’s would been vary helpful to decide who the next president would be.. Joe would have also been looked at and we would NOT BE in the mess were in now. Lack of info and the media hiding the Biden corruption has put our nation in the worst shape it’s been in more than 50 years .Thanks to the media, for the most part, we have been damaged in so many fronts it hard to count them all ,because all the truth’s have yet to to known. Thanks ABC,CBS,CNN and any other democratic controlled news outlets for helping to destroy out country. Good job

Why would information about the Bidens be withheld before the election? That is exactly the information that American public needed to make a good choice. Now we are stuck with a criminal for President.

When it comes to dems, they say we’re
conspiracy theorists but when it comes to
them, they have all the protections, even

They are the ones giving out misinformation.

Well sure! THE CRIME BOSS IS NOW OUR PRESIDENT(well, sort of)! So is there anybody on this planet that thinks his drug addict, pedophile, international criminal son will face any sort of punishment? Sadly, not until the Democrats lose their majority and power. Then MAYBE…

It was not fair to make a decision based on his Father’s running for office. How does the Son get away with doing whatever he wants? How many people got hurt from this delay, which still is being delayed. Are you waiting for Joe to die before you deal with Hunter? I don’t think you have any right to worry about the political side of it. A crime is a crime! Correct the situation NOW! Get it done NOW!

They should go with their investigations NOW. The people that are held in the DC jail have done NOTHING compared to Hunter. Those people need to be released. What is the HOLD UP on that? Biden and Hunter both need to be in jail for ALL their CRIMINAL ACTIVITES. GOD BLESS THE USA!
