During a hearing on Wednesday with Attorney General Merrick Garland, Republican Senator Charles Grassley revealed that more than a dozen whistleblowers had provided the FBI with potentially criminal information about Hunter Biden.
The son of President Joe Biden had previously been the subject of a federal investigation related to tax issues and a possible false statement made while purchasing a firearm.
Grassley urged the Justice Department to investigate the matter and asked what steps had been taken to determine the truth and accuracy of the information provided.
Attorney General Merrick Garland faced tough questioning from Republican lawmakers during the hearing, with accusations of bias and criticism of his handling of such probes.
The DailyMail transcribed the exchange between Grassley and Garland, where Garland promised to leave the matter of Hunter Biden in the hands of the US Attorney for Delaware.
Garland also confirmed that he did not know whether Weiss had sought permission from another US Attorney’s Office to bring charges against Hunter Biden.
