McCarthy: DOJ’s Slow Investigation of Hunter Biden Smells like a Cover-Up

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said the Justice Department’s slow investigation of Hunter Biden, which followed a ‘sweet heart’ plea deal to avoid prison time, “smells like a cover-up” under Attorney General Merrick Garland.

McCarthy wrote in an op-ed for Fox News titled, “On Biden’s watch, Lady Justice has been weaponized. But Merrick Garland can’t do this one thing,” that mounting evidence shows that Biden’s Justice Department “enforces the law unequally by tilting the scales to favor friends and family while unleashing the FBI and prosecutors on President Biden’s political opponent.”

McCarthy also pointed out the statute of limitations ran out on any tax evasion charges that could be brought against Hunter Biden for payments from Ukrainian energy firm Burisma he received while Joe Biden was vice president.

“After slow-walking this investigation for five years, the DOJ turned what the whistleblower described as a ‘slam dunk’ felony case against Hunter Biden into a sweetheart plea deal and possibly buried evidence of crimes that have sent other Americans to prison,” McCarthy also wrote.

“When a prosecutor shields his boss’s son from investigators, it smells like a cover-up. Garland’s DOJ did not aggressively follow the money. Why? Are they afraid of where that trail ends?”

The Republican House Speaker added that “someone is not telling the truth,” and Congress is responsible for finding the answers.

McCarthy also calls on David Weiss, the Delaware U.S. Attorney leading the Hunter Biden probe, to testify before Congress.

“Our committees will continue to gather evidence and conduct oversight, and we will follow the facts wherever they lead. Nothing will stop us from getting to the truth for the American people,” McCarthy added.

As The New York Post reported:

McCarthy indicated Tuesday that the Delaware federal prosecutor leading the investigation into first son Hunter Biden will be forced to answer questions from lawmakers about allegations of a cover-up in the probe.

McCarthy (R-Calif.) dismissed US Attorney David Weiss’ contention that he cannot answer specific queries about the case after IRS whistleblowers involved in the investigation alleged that the prosecutor’s request to be named special counsel was denied by the Justice Department — and that Weiss was prevented from charging the 53-year-old Hunter in both Southern California and Washington, DC.

“There’s a lot of questions here that continue to rise from every time, the more you look at it, and I think for the American public you should look at all of it,” McCarthy told reporters on Capitol Hill.

“Weiss had not come before us and talked to us. Weiss wrote a letter that raises even more questions,” the House speaker shot back when a reporter noted that the prosecutor in a letter had denied that he had asked to be named special counsel and maintained that he had “ultimate authority” in the investigation.

“If you knew this was a question, if you knew because of the attorney that you were because you worked for the Attorney General and others, and that it would rise to such a constitutional question, why wouldn’t you step out the first day and say, ‘I got nothing to hide, let’s talk about what was said.’ This was right, or this was wrong. Why do you want to mince words inside a letter?” the speaker added.

lol. It does? Really? It smells like a coverup? Well I’ll be damned. Do you think that might be possible? We’ve only known about the extent for 3 years. And you McCarthy, just now had a eye opening epiphany that there might be a coverup? My god man. You are either part of it or to stupid to know what a coverup is. You do, it appears, know J6 is a coverup.
