In a recent revelation that has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, it has been discovered that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, now appointed as the special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation, had previously collaborated with Hunter’s late brother, Beau Biden. This collaboration dates back to a significant fraud case in 2010.
During this period, Weiss was the acting Delaware U.S. Attorney. He joined forces with then-Democratic Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden. Their combined efforts were directed against the state’s largest healthcare provider, Christiana Care Health System. The duo successfully secured a $3.3 million settlement against the healthcare provider, which was found guilty of violating federal and state False Claims Acts by misappropriating federal and state healthcare funds.
This collaboration was first reported by the Washington Post, which highlighted the close working relationship between Weiss and Beau Biden. Tim Mullaney Sr., Beau Biden’s chief of staff at the state attorney general’s office, mentioned that their office frequently collaborated with the U.S. attorney’s office during Weiss’s tenure. However, he emphasized that Beau Biden and Weiss had a strictly professional relationship.
The recent appointment of Weiss as Special Counsel for the Hunter Biden investigation has raised eyebrows, especially given the lengthy timeline of the case. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy expressed concerns about the transparency and trustworthiness of the Department of Justice under the Biden administration.
This revelation adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing Hunter Biden investigation. With such close ties between the special counsel and the Biden family, questions about impartiality and fairness are bound to arise.
Beau Biden, whose full name was Joseph Robinette “Beau” Biden III, was the eldest son of Joe Biden. He passed away on May 30, 2015, from a type of brain cancer called glioblastoma. He served as the Attorney General of Delaware from 2007 to 2015. His legacy in Delaware politics is well-known, and his collaboration with Weiss on the healthcare fraud case is a testament to his commitment to justice.
The Hunter Biden investigation itself has been a topic of much contention. Earlier this month, the appointment of Weiss as Special Counsel to oversee the investigation into Hunter Biden garnered much contention. The lengthy timeline of the case, which has spanned five years without an indictment, suggests a deliberate strategy to let the statute of limitations run its course.
On June 20, 2023, the DOJ charged Hunter Biden with two counts of failing to pay taxes. These charges were initially filed in Delaware due to an agreement where Hunter would not challenge the venue and would plead guilty. However, in a twist during the July 26, 2023 hearing, he pleaded not guilty. This unexpected plea and the stalled plea negotiations are said to be the reason for the DOJ’s push to move the case.
According to IRS whistleblowers, charges against Hunter Biden were mysteriously dropped by Weiss even after he approved them. Weiss also appeared to not have total authority in his investigation as he had previously led Congress to believe. There are also allegations that Weiss hid damning evidence from investigators and that his office actively prevented its probe from exploring Joe Biden’s prospective role in his son’s business dealings.
In conclusion, the revelation of Weiss’s past collaboration with Beau Biden adds a new dimension to the Hunter Biden investigation. As the case unfolds, the public will be keenly watching how the special counsel navigates the complexities and potential conflicts of interest that arise from his past associations.
