(TargetLiberty.org) – The U.S. Department of Justice has assured Representative Jim Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee chairman from Ohio, that U.S. Attorney David Weiss would be cleared to appear before the House this fall. This assurance was provided via a letter dispatched on Monday.
The request for Weiss’ testimony, along with several others, is part of a larger push by the House Republicans regarding their investigation into Hunter Biden.
The letter, authored by Assistant Attorney General Carlos Felipe Uriarte, conveyed the department’s willingness to facilitate Weiss’ public testimony. It also emphasized that Weiss will be prepared to appear before the Congress once they reconvene after August.
Further, the letter asserted that it would be in the collective interest of Congress and the American public for Weiss to directly address and clarify questions and allegations related to his role in the investigation.
The scrutiny of Hunter Biden’s business dealings is being carried out collectively by the House Judiciary Committee, the House Oversight Committee, and the House Ways and Means Committee. As part of this federal investigation, there’s an ongoing evaluation as to whether Hunter Biden’s legal proceedings and decisions were influenced by his father or the political backdrop.
The list of individuals sought for testimony includes U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, who had earlier obstructed Weiss from pressing charges against Hunter Biden. Additional names include Jack Morgan and Mark Daly from the DOJ’s Tax Division, and various other U.S. attorney generals along with their aides.
