Recently, Joe Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, named U.S. Attorney David Weiss as special counsel in the Hunter Biden probe.
Of course, he only made the appointment after the sweetheart plea deal that Weiss cut with Hunter Biden collapsed.
Weiss had tried to get away with handing Hunter Biden lifetime immunity from prosecution if he pled guilty to two minor tax charges and entered a diversion program on federal charges that he lied on a background check form when purchasing a firearm in 2018.
That’s right, Weiss was trying to give Hunter immunity for ALL crimes he has committed, might have committed, or will commit.
Most observers saw the deal for what it was, a pure power play by Weiss, Garland, and Joe Biden.
The point of the deal being to cut off all investigations into the alleged Biden family’s foreign influence-peddling scheme that threatened to ensnare President Joe Biden.
In fact, Attorney General Garland only named Weiss as special counsel in the Hunter Biden probe after two IRS whistleblowers came forward with damning testimony.
Their testimony about how the Biden Justice Department protected Hunter Biden from facing more serious criminal charges caused Garland to act to try and stop any further probes.
Then, everything went south again.
Now, it looks like Weiss is going to indict Hunter Biden on the gun charges.
A new court filing shows Weiss is planning to indict Hunter Biden on the gun charge by the end of the month.
“[T]he Speedy Trial Act requires that the Government obtain the return of an indictment by a grand jury by Friday, Sept 29, 2023, at the earliest,” the court filing reads.
“The Government intends to seek the return of an indictment in this case before that date,” the filing continued.
The gun charge seems like an open and shut case, as Hunter Biden checked a box stating that he was not addicted to drugs on a federal firearms background check form at a time when Hunter Biden admitted in his book that he was addicted to smoking crack.
A conviction on these charges carries a potential 10-year prison sentence.
And some are now convinced Weiss announcing his intention to indict Hunter Biden on the gun charges means other criminal charges are potentially in the offing.
CNN: "There's the question about whether … there are other potential crimes that are now back on the table" for Hunter Biden.

The Biden administration’s attempt to use the original Hunter Biden plea deal to cover up leads that likely point to President Joe Biden was destroyed by a judge questioning the constitutionality of the plea deal.
The big question now is, since the Biden administration knows they’re under a microscope in this case, will they play it straight?
Most Americans aren’t holding their breath.
