33 Senators Call for Hunter Biden Special Counsel, Cite DOJ ‘politicization’; See-No-Evil Biden Says He’s Not at All Concerned About Hunter ‘conflicts’; Most Voters Say Biden Was Consulted, Profited From Son’s Overseas Business Dealings

33 senators call for Hunter Biden special counsel, cite DOJ ‘politicization’:
One third of the US Senate has signed a letter asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to give US Attorney David Weiss the powers of a special counsel to investigate first son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
In the Monday letter, the 33 Republicans cited the “politicization” of the Justice Department, a lack of public trust in the authorities, and recent whistleblower allegations of a coverup within the FBI of evidence and testimony damaging to the first son.
“Given the politicization of the DOJ under your watch and the importance of avoiding any appearance of impropriety, the undersigned request that you provide U.S. Attorney Weiss the full protections and authorities of a special counsel,” the letter says.
“This is one important action that you can take that will go a long way in restoring faith in our governmental institutions.”
Weiss, the US attorney for Delaware and a Trump administration holdover, has been leading the investigation of Hunter Biden, who recently paid the IRS about $2 million in back taxes — using either a loan or gift from Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris — in an attempt to avoid prosecution.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) organized the letter, which was signed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and a diverse group of others. --->READ MORE HERE
See-no-evil Biden says he’s not at all concerned about Hunter ‘conflicts’:
President Biden claimed in a rare one-on-one interview that he hasn’t “observed” a “single thing” about his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals that create conflicts of interest for him — despite a variety of examples cited by Republicans as they prepare to launch investigations.
Biden gave a one-sentence brush-off when asked by CBS “60 Minutes” anchor Scott Pelley about GOP inquiries into “conflicts for you or for the United States” in places such as in China, Russia and Ukraine.
“There’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter,” the president said.
Biden also said, “I love my son, number one. He fought an addiction problem, he overcame it, he wrote about it.”
But Republicans have cited many apparent conflicts of interest as they prepare for probes with subpoena power next year if they retake the House or Senate.
“This false statement further highlights urgent need for special counsel,” tweeted Tom Fitton, president of the conservative transparency group Judicial Watch.
Columnist Derek Hunter tweeted, “This is embarrassing for both @ScottPelley and @60Minutes. No question about Joe’s numerous meetings with Hunter’s business partners after repeatedly saying he’d never once met them? Nothing? Not one, Scott?” --->READ MORE HERE
