- AMERICAN THINKER - Warren Beatty - APRIL 24, 2023 -
Harken back to 20 January 2021 when the doddering fool who occupies the Bully Pulpit was inaugurated. He appointed Nicholas McQuaid, a White House lawyer during the Obama presidency, as Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General and Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division.
Why should we care? McQuaid was a colleague of Chris Clark, the lawyer Hunter Biden hired in December 2020 to assist with his federal tax problems. A month later Joe Biden appointed McQuaid to oversee the agency that began its investigation of Hunter's tax situation in 2018.
Does Joe's timing look suspicious? Do you think McQuaid influenced the Hunter Biden tax investigation? Why revisit this issue?
Because it has become current. As Matt Steib says, "It's Raining Hunter Biden News." Federal prosecutors have considered charging Hunter Biden with a felony count of tax evasion. That consideration is now causing frustration "within the FBI about the amount of time prosecutors are spending weighing possible criminal charges against first son Hunter Biden for alleged tax evasion."
In addition, an IRS whistleblower, a criminal supervisory special agent who has been overseeing an ongoing case involving Hunter Biden's tax returns, alleges that Hunter Biden got special treatment in the form of "political interference and improper handling of the case by the Biden administration."
The whistleblower is seeking protection so he can publicly testify to Congress. He says he has proof that Merrick Garland, Biden's AG, lied to Congress while under oath when he insisted the Hunter Biden investigation was free from political interference and that the attorney in charge had full autonomy.
Joe Biden dismissed the allegations that the investigation had been influenced by politics.
