BREAKING UPDATE: Special Counsel Investigating Hunter Biden to Testify on Tuesday Behind Closed Doors

Special Counsel David Weiss is scheduled to testify in a closed-door session before the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Eastern, regarding his involvement in the five-year investigation of Hunter Biden.

House Republicans are anticipating the interview to resolve contradictions among statements from Weiss, four IRS agents, two prosecutors, and Attorney General Merrick Garland. In June, Garland stated that Weiss “was given complete authority to make all decisions” in the Hunter Biden tax investigation.

It’s anticipated that Weiss will maintain he had complete control over his investigation but will refrain from addressing ongoing inquiries about the Hunter probe.

Weiss’s spokesman, Wyn Hornbuckle, informed reporters that, in line with department policy and the law, Weiss won’t be able to discuss the specifics of his investigation.

Garland’s claim about Weiss’s unrestricted authority contradicts assertions from four IRS informants and two senior prosecutors:

Four IRS whistleblowers contend the DOJ twice prevented Weiss from bringing stronger charges against Hunter Biden, including in separate jurisdictions, and that Weiss’s probe was politically influenced. U.S. Attorney for Washington, DC, Matthew Graves admitted on October 3 that he balked at partnering with Weiss to bring tax charges in 2022 against Hunter Biden, broadly corroborating IRS whistleblowers’ claims Hunter Biden received preferential treatment.
