David Weiss, US Special Counsel overseeing the investigation into Hunter Biden, is scheduled for a private meeting with the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.
Appointed during Trump’s presidency and continuing under the current administration, Weiss has been leading the inquiry into the president’s son since 2019. His appearance before the committee occurs amidst an impeachment investigation targeting President Joe Biden, with allegations from House Republicans of Justice Department meddling.
In the course of his investigation, Weiss has brought forward charges against Hunter Biden concerning illegal drug use and firearm possession. These developments followed after negotiations broke down over a plea agreement related to lesser tax and gun law violations. As the impeachment scrutiny intensifies, Weiss is anticipated to clarify his role in the investigation, countering whistleblower claims by affirming his complete authority over the decision-making process.
House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan highlighted perceived discrepancies in Weiss’s earlier communications with lawmakers, promising transparency by releasing interview transcripts. Weiss, adhering to Justice Department norms, is expected to refrain from discussing investigation particulars.
