The Department of Justice, politicized and weaponized under Joe Biden, is being accused of filing charges against a U.S.-Israeli citizen "linked to the House Republicans' probe into the Biden family" in order to silence him.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said, "Is DOJ trying to silence Dr. Gal Luft from publicly exposing Biden family corruption? The American people deserve the truth and Dr. Luft must have the chance to testify before Congress."

The New York Post noted that Luft, key in the investigation into the Biden family's "international influence-peddling," suddenly is facing claims of arms trafficking and acting as an unregistered lobbyist for China.

The report explained, "Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York say, Luft, 57, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen who was arrested in Cyprus this past February and went on the run after being released on bail prior to his extradition, agreed in 2015 to let former Hong Kong official Patrick Ho send $350,000 each year to Luft’s think tank, the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security. In return, the indictment said, Luft agreed to 'recruit and 'educate'' a former high-ranking U.S. official to 'make public statements … which were in the interest of China.'"

Newsweek took its report directly to the heart of the controversy, explaining, "The indictment of Gal Luft, a U.S.-Israeli citizen linked to the House Republicans' probe into the Biden family, has prompted conspiracy theories that the charges announced by the Department of Justice (DOJ) were part of an effort to hinder an investigation into U.S. President Joe Biden."

The report said Luft, of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security, a think tank, now faces eights counts.

"Luft previously came forward as an informant in the probe into allegations about the Biden family's overseas business dealings, telling The New York Post that he was aware of dealings between them and Chinese energy firm CEFC."
