Americans have all kinds of reasons to be thankful for Wyoming voters who kicked Liz Cheney out of Congress.
Never Trumper Liz Cheney made taking down Donald Trump a crusade that ultimately destroyed her political career instead of his like she hoped.
Wyoming voters ditched Cheney in 2022 when Harriet Hageman beat her soundly in the primary.
Now, Hageman is proving her mettle as a Representative for the conservative state by calling out Joe Biden’s Department of Justice.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has played up his role as the Biden regime’s henchman, but his latest move makes it clear he’s just as dedicated to protecting the president’s son as he is attacking Donald Trump.
Merrick announced that David Weiss would be granted special counsel status in Hunter Biden’s investigation.
Incredibly, Weiss is the attorney who cut a sweet plea deal for Hunter Biden that ultimately fell apart when the judge got a good look at his absurd proposal.
Appointing Weiss as special counsel is like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse.
In fact, Merrick’s plan could benefit Weiss by keeping him from being put in the position of answering questions about his role in the Hunter Biden investigation already.
But Hageman, an attorney herself, called out this new scheme as corrupt.
Speaking to Breitbart, Hageman said, “This is the same guy that gave the sweetheart deal. This is the guy who tried to get Hunter Biden immunity from future prosecutions for violating the law. And the only reason that he was stopped was because the judge smelled the rat and started asking some questions.”
“This is the same guy who took so long to charge Hunter Biden with anything. In the most important tax aspects of the case against him, he allowed the statute of limitations to run. Now he’s either incompetent or he’s in on the deal,” Hageman added. “There’s no other explanation for it. Under no circumstances should he be the person investigating this.”
The whole point of appointing a special counsel is to find an impartial sleuth to investigate a matter, rather than empowering someone who has been involved in a matter for years.
“There are a lot of people who want to make sure that Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family are never exposed for what they are because it has too many tentacles. That’s one thing to keep in mind,” Hageman pointed out. “I have to say about Hunter Biden, when people say, ‘well, there’s no smoking gun, and you don’t see direct payments made into Joe Biden’s bank account, and how can you say he benefited from this?’ All we have to ask is one simple question, and that is, ‘What was the skill set that Hunter Biden was selling?’ Hunter Biden was, by his own admission, a crackhead from 2003 to 2019, a serious user of drugs — do you think that these companies were hiring him to help them with contract negotiations? Or that he was an expert in employment law in the Ukraine? Or that perhaps he knew how to write very complicated oil and gas agreements between the government and the companies?”
Hunter Biden’s sketchy international business deals don’t even come close to standing up to any sort of sniff test in most Americans’ eyes.
The Biden administration’s fake it until you make it approach is getting old fast, but the stakes are so high the First Family is willing to do whatever it takes to keep pretending everything is above board.
