Merrick Garland is presiding over the most lawless Justice Department in history.

He was hoping no one noticed one of his political favors.

And John Kennedy asked one simple question that had Merrick Garland sweating bullets.

Overlooked Justice Department decision keeps Hunter Biden out of hot water

The Justice Department’s investigation into Hunter Biden for tax evasion and other crimes was marred by political interference.

Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who was leading the probe into the President’s son, reached out to District of Columbia U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves about partnering on the case.

Graves – who was appointed by President Joe Biden – strung Weiss along and then decided not to join the case.

That decision had major implications in the Hunter Biden investigation.

IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler testified that Graves’ refusal to cooperate allowed the statute of limitations to expire for tax crimes that they were investigating Hunter Biden for, involving income he was paid by Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Hunter Biden avoided potential charges from the IRS investigation into him because of a decision by a federal prosecutor appointed by his father.

John Kennedy puts Merrick Garland in the hot seat

U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) grilled Attorney General Merrick Garland about the Justice Department’s decision to allow the statute of limitations to expire in the case.

“Mr. Hunter Biden did not pay taxes on $1 million in 2014 and 2015, and he deducted payments from his income tax for personal expenses when he did file for hookers, for a Lamborghini, for strip clubs, for sex clubs, for porn website memberships,” Kennedy said. “Why did the Department of Justice let the statute of limitations run so you can’t prosecute?”

“As you well know, Senator, that investigation is being conducted by Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump to be the U.S. Attorney in Delaware,” Garland replied. “Much of the investigation you’re talking about occurred during the previous administration under Mr. Weiss. Mr. Weiss has continued his investigations, is now a special counsel. He will issue a report, which will explain those.”

Of course, the question that Kennedy asked was about something that happened during the Biden administration.

“So are you saying it’s Trump’s fault?” Kennedy asked.

“No, I don’t know whether there’s fault or not. Mr. Weiss will explain this in his report,” Garland said.

Kennedy slammed the Justice Department for letting Hunter Biden evade potential tax charges by letting the statute of limitations expire.

“Again, I’m not going to comment on decisions made in a pending investigation,” Garland said. “In the end, Mr. Weiss will issue a report. I will provide a report to Congress. You will be able to question Mr. Weiss as to his reasoning and he will be able to defend his reasoning.”

Weiss had nothing to do with the Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney’s decision not to join the case.

The fact is, Biden’s Justice Department went out of its way to protect the President’s son.
