Special Counsel David Weiss' appointment may violate DOJ regulations

 August 13, 2023

Attorney General Merrick Garland recently chose U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware to serve as special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden's alleged corruption, a move that may have violated standard agency regulations.

Typically, a special counsel is selected from outside of the current governmental hierarchy.

Specifically, according to Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations, "The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government."

Furthermore, the appointment of Weiss is unusual considering his previous involvement with the Hunter Biden probe.

Weiss' office is responsible for the insane "sweetheart deal” that would have effectively immunized the first son from future prosecutions. The deal was highly unusual and was swiftly rejected by the judge overseeing the case.

Many believe Weiss and the DOJ crafted the plea deal in order to get Hunter Biden out of trouble and prevent future investigations that would have been politically damaging to the Biden family. So, for Garland to break the regulations in appointing Weiss further indicates that the government isn't done trying to protect the Bidens.
