CNN Confesses, Biden DOJ Doing Shady Business


This was a shocking but necessary confession from CNN.

Several Republicans express concerns over U.S. attorney David Weiss supervising the investigation into President Biden’s son. CNN anchor Jake Tapper also acknowledged some of these concerns on Friday, noting their validity.

According to Fox, Weiss, the federal prosecutor who faced criticism for a contentious plea deal for Hunter that fell apart upon scrutiny, has been appointed as a special counsel to oversee the ongoing inquiry into the president’s son. Attorney General Merrick Garland granted Weiss broader authority in bringing charges by designating him as special counsel.

In a statement, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer from Kentucky criticized Garland’s decision, suggesting it could be an attempt to conceal Biden family actions in the face of mounting evidence suggesting President Biden’s involvement in lucrative dealings with foreign nationals.

During a segment on “CNN News Central,” Tapper offered his perspective: “I think there are some legitimate questions about this whole situation. First of all, I do think it’s fair to question why would U.S. Attorney Weiss be appointed to special counsel. Usually, a special counsel is an outside attorney. Now, it has happened before. Durham came from inside, and the attorney general has the right to do that, but it is odd.”

Tapper proceeded to inquire about the rationale behind retaining the individual responsible for the failed Hunter plea deal, labeling it a “massive blunder,” and raising concerns about the adequacy of the original deal.


He further addressed the confusion about Weiss’ jurisdiction, whether he already possessed the authority to press charges beyond Delaware before being named special counsel. Tapper recalled instances where the U.S. attorney seemingly made contradictory statements about his authority, as reported by whistleblowers.

“While the Justice Department and Weiss denied the whistleblowers’ allegations, this move seems to lend credence to their claims. It appears that perhaps the whistleblowers were accurate in their assertions. It’s plausible that he lacked the power to press the charges he wanted to, and now, as special counsel, he does. So, I do have significant questions about this, and I do believe that some of the concerns raised by Republicans hold weight,” Tapper emphasized.

Tapper’s stance noticeably shifted compared to the previous day when he deemed House Republicans’ revelations of over $20 million wired to Biden family members from dubious foreign entities as “unethical” but not illegal during an interview with Comer.

Addressing Comer in the interview, Tapper began, “For the sake of discussion, let’s assume that Hunter’s actions were unethical, and the president’s relatives attempted to capitalize on the Biden family name, a topic CNN has extensively covered. What does this recent memo bring to light?” He proceeded to reiterate his view that he saw “no substantiated evidence” of wrongdoing by President Biden.

Comer raised concerns about multiple agencies seemingly obstructing the investigation’s progress, stating, “Biden’s legal representatives are obstructing the process, witnesses are facing intimidation, the DOJ, FBI, and others are uncooperative.
