Dear Attorney General Garland:
We the undersigned write to request that United States Attorney David C. Weiss be extended special counsel protections and authorities to conduct the Hunter Biden investigation...

Under the long letter (see link) to Garland arguing why David Weiss should be named a special counsel are the signatures of 33 Republican US senators.

    Those are Swamp Republicans, Curt.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on August 12, 2023 9:41 am

    Check the date on the letter. pb thinks that, had Garland taken action, in good faith, then, most of the disaster of the past year wouldn't have taken place. But, alas...

    ...now all h3ll is really and truly breaking loose. And, an Impeachment Inquiry, at the very least, is a dun deal! Baha baha.

    Fun Fun fun.

    That letter was sent 11 months ago. What would cause Chuck Grassley, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson et al to change their minds about David Weiss a Republican who was appointed originally by the Trump administration to investigate Hunter Biden on income tax misdemeanors and a gun possession charge?

    The IRS "whistleblowers", whose opinions and perceptions HtS assumes to be fact, complained the David Weiss was hamstrung by his not having special counsel status.

    I'll answer your question if you, in honesty, assure me that you are so intensely steeped in progressive SwampMedia propaganda that you really don't know.

    No, Curt, you don't know. I could be wrong but I think we're experiencing a sea change among GOPs.

    The three goobers on my Legal Advisory Council are all very different from each other. None of them support Trump but the one who is EF Hutton among GOPs is Andy McCarthy. He's been crazed about Weiss for about a month...and GOPs are listening.

    I'll watch Shannon tomorrow. 10 to 1 odds, Fox News contributor Turley will get time in the first half hour. I'm specting to hear that the David Weiss part of this will be Turley's problem with what "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap's" DOJ has attempted. It's not Turley's thing to use the adjective "sham," or, "whitewash," as others are but my guess is that that'll align with his take.

    The GOPs are apoplectic right now. I doubt that Garland saw that coming. But, they are. For good reason.

    HTS, that is a rather dubious appeal to authority argument that you make. I believe it with you who said that this investigation of the Bidens is political. Agreed. There isn’t a coherent argument as to why the Trump appointed Republican attorney David Weiss is not qualified to be special counsel. At least I don’t believe the greater public will buy the argument.

    In fact, I don’t believe you could articulate an argument why Weiss shouldn’t have been appointed special counsel, other than the fact that he was not successful in charging or even implicating Joe Biden—-especially after Chuck Grassley, Ron Johnson and other Republicans requested that Garland appoint Weiss as a special counsel.

    By the way, it’s very possible your fondest hopes may be dashed if Hunter Biden takes a plea deal.


  8. by HatetheSwamp on August 12, 2023 11:48 am

    There's the actual law, Curt. According to the goober members of my Legal Advisory Council, a Special Counsel must come from outside the federal government. Weiss doesn't. AND, Garland has allowed Weiss to maintain his current position in government as well.

    But, the reason that I hear from GOPs has nothing to do with the law that determines who can be appointed as a Special Counsel. It's the nearly universal conviction among GOPs that Weiss has demonstrated that he's "corrupt." I've heard that word multiple times.

    And, that's the point. All h3ll is breaking loose over here. What Garland did has created a raging fire among GOPs. It doesn't matter a d@ng if Weiss is a legitimate appointment and it doesn't matter if Weiss possesses the integrity to be the Special Counsel. One GOP after another has come forward to denounce Weiss and to condemn what Garland did as an act intended to protect the Biden Crime Family.

    I can't see any alternative to the GOPs holding an Impeachment Inquiry. Further, pb has been 50/50 about whether, in the end, enough GOPs will support actual Impeachment. My sense, at the moment is that likelihood is now 75%.

    By the way, it’s very possible your fondest hopes may be dashed if Hunter Biden takes a plea deal.

    I can't see how, so please splain. At this point, this is 100% political. What happens with Hunter criminally is entirely irrelevant by now. So, splain.

    "I can't see how, so please splain." --HtS


    As I said, it's possible. A plea deal is an admission of guilt. Let's say Hunter pleads guilty to the misdemeanor tax charges, the technical gun possession charge (this headline appeared two days ago in Reuters: Drug user cannot be barred from owning guns, US court rules), and maybe illegal foreign lobbying, etc. Then there will be no trial or headlines breathlessly documenting the trial. Maybe Hunter even gets jail time.

    Then what do Republicans "investigate": the crimes that Hunter Biden already pleaded guilty to? If that isn't seen as double jeopardy, it will be seen as harassment.

    Curt,

    As much as you choose to live in denial, the GOPs have documentation of more than $20 million dollars that Hunter, a crack-addled neerdowell received from corrupt foreign businessmen and politicians. They need to find on piece of evidence connecting "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" to a single piece of it.

    They still have Tony Bobulinski, Rob Walker and those FBI whistle-blowers, plus who knows what else and who else.

    They're not as hopeless as you want to think.


  14. by Ponderer on August 12, 2023 2:01 pm

    And as much as you love to live in denial, Bill, it's been hysterical watching you defend Trump all morning when you say you never do.

    "They need to find on piece of evidence connecting [Joe Biden to illicit foreign money]" -- HtS

    Despite what you said (see link) flushed with hope more than a year ago, the Republicans have still not yet found the elusive evidence that incriminates Joe Biden.

    But even if they do, it isn't enough to connect Joe Biden to foreign money. Not that they are anywhere close to making that connection. That revelation always seem to be "coming soon".

    1. It has to be given to Joe Biden while he was in office, not the four recent years he was a private citizen. Since Trump left office and before (and almost certainly during) he has made deals with foreigners including the Saudis and their LIV golf association.

    2. It has to be connected to a lucrative favor to somebody (foreigners ideally) in exchange for money.

    3. The favor cannot be something that was done in our national interest at the behest of Congress or a past administration, even if it benefitted some foreigner(s).

    4. Proof of bribery requires demonstrating a “quid pro quo” relationship in which the recipient directly alters behavior in exchange for the gift. If I were to send James Comer $100 with a note saying "this money is so you investigate the Biden family", that's not a bribe because it's something Comer would do without my request.

    Bill, I was not talking exclusively about this thread.

    Despite what you said (see link) flushed with hope more than a year ago, the Republicans have still not yet found the elusive evidence that incriminates Joe Biden.

    You can't assume that, really.

    And, again. No one's talking about convicting "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" of a crime. Monitoring right-wing media as I do, my guess is that more than half of HouseGOPs would vote to impeach Joe now, based on what's already known...

    ...and, that doesn't include Tony Bobulinski and Rob Walker and the FBI whistle-blowers.

    It must just bust your gut that all of this is under the control of Kevin McCarthy and James Comer and Jim Jordan and that nuthin any HouseDem or Merrick Garland or David Weiss does'll make any, as po'd really say, effindifference.

    It has to be connected to a lucrative favor to somebody (foreigners ideally) in exchange for money.

    Really? According to whom?

    Proof of bribery requires demonstrating a “quid pro quo” relationship in which the recipient directly alters behavior in exchange for the gift. If I were to send James Comer $100 with a note saying "this money is so you investigate the Biden family", that's not a bribe because it's something Comer would do without my request.

    Noop. Because no one is thinking about convicting "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" of the crime...

    ...even INDICTING him. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!


  20. by HatetheSwamp on August 12, 2023 2:43 pm

    Anywhere, po. Anywhere at, as you'd really say, effinall.
