Attorney General Merrick Garland faced intense scrutiny during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee as he declined to answer questions related to the ongoing Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into Hunter Biden. This reluctance to provide clarity has raised concerns and fueled speculation about potential interference in the high-profile case.

House Republicans Seek Clarity on Hunter Biden Investigation

House Republicans pressed Garland for answers, viewing his testimony as a crucial step in their pursuit of evidence for a potential impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. They believe that Garland may possess information regarding whether the President benefited from his son's business dealings, a matter at the center of the investigation.

During the questioning, Garland cited "internal deliberations" as the reason for his refusal to discuss the ongoing Hunter Biden investigation or two federal indictments involving former President Donald Trump. He reiterated this stance on multiple occasions, stating, "I'm not going to get into the internal deliberations."

Garland's Silence on Key Matters

Despite repeated inquiries, Garland also refrained from commenting on whether he had collaborated with David Weiss, the special prosecutor overseeing the Hunter Biden investigation. Weiss has faced allegations of making unusual decisions during the inquiry, including initially supporting felony tax charges against Hunter Biden before subsequently dropping them.

One pressing issue raised during the hearing was Weiss's decision to allow the statute of limitations to expire on potential charges related to Hunter Biden's work for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma in 2014 and 2015. Garland opted not to discuss the statute of limitations and deferred the matter to Weiss, stating, "I don't know anything about the statute of limitations here."

Garland's Controversial Appointment of David Weiss

Garland's testimony has intensified scrutiny of his role in the Hunter Biden investigation. The attorney general appointed David Weiss as the Justice Department's special counsel for the inquiry on August 11, a decision that has drawn criticism from Republicans who believe Weiss may not be pursuing the case with the necessary vigor.

Two whistleblowers from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have alleged that Weiss made questionable decisions during the investigation, initially supporting significant charges against Hunter Biden before reversing course. They also claim that higher-ups at the Justice Department blocked certain charges against the President's son.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio expressed skepticism, stating, "The fix is in." Jordan accused Garland of deliberately selecting Weiss to protect Joe Biden's interests.

Garland's Defense of Weiss and DOJ's Handling of the Case

Garland has defended Weiss and the DOJ's handling of the investigation, emphasizing that he has refrained from interfering with Weiss's work to maintain the appearance of impartiality. He claimed to have kept his promise, made during his confirmation in 2021, not to interfere with Weiss's investigation.

Additionally, Garland maintained that Weiss, as a competent career attorney, was the sole decision-maker in the cases he handled. Garland's refusal to provide further insights into the "extraordinary circumstances" influencing Weiss's appointment and the handling of the Hunter Biden investigation continues to raise questions.

The attorney general's testimony underscores the ongoing controversy surrounding the investigation and its potential implications for the Biden administration.
