It turns out that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), shortly after Joe Biden became president, demanded a briefing on the ongoing criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.
Just the News reports:
A mere 16 days after Joe Biden assumed the presidency, top officials in his Justice Department raised suspicion among career IRS agents by demanding a briefing on the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, according to evidence turned over to Congress that raises new questions about Attorney General Merrick Garland's claims of an interference-free probe.
Now, why would the DOJ demand this briefing 16 days after Biden became president? Could it be that, upon taking office, Biden immediately began using his power as head of the executive branch to get his son, Hunter Biden, off the hook?
That's for you to decide.
This new information comes from documents that have been released by Congress. House Republicans obtained the documents in their investigation of the situation.
The documents contain email exchanges that took place between federal prosecutors and IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler. You can read the emails for yourself here.
The email exchange regarded a Feb. 5, 2021, meeting that took place between Biden's new assistant attorneys general in DOJ's Washington headquarters and Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who, at the time, was leading the investigation into Hunter Biden.
This is the same meeting that is referred to above - the one that the DOJ requested 16 days after Biden became president.
In one email, Delaware Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf - who has been accused of running interference for Biden - writes:
The 5 attorneys have the briefing at 1130 with the AAGs. It is scheduled for an hour, but if we aren’t on at 1230, you will know that it ran long. You guys can either start without us or people can log out and we will shoot an email out when we are done.
Shapley responds by forwarding Wolf's message to the IRS' chain of command. He wrote:
We learned today that USAO and DOJ Tax are briefing the new AAG on the tax case today. NSD asked for a briefing so they could understand the tax side of the case. I don’t understand why this matters to them since they are NSD…but I just wanted to give you an update that this meeting was occurring.
This is the big question: why did this meeting take place?
What this appears to be is the latest evidence that the claim U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland repeatedly has made to Congress - namely, that the DOJ did not interfere with Weiss's investigation of Hunter Biden - is false.
At this point, it would be safe to conclude, simply, that Garland lied. There is just too much evidence that contradicts Garland's claim.
If Garland did lie, and if the DOJ did interfere with Weiss's investigation, then the question becomes "Why?" The only answer that would seem to make any sense is: to protect the president's son. And, if this is true, it is more evidence of Biden family corruption.
