Moderate Republicans Sound the Alarm on
David Weiss’s Special Counsel Appointment

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 8/12/2023 12:57:02 AM

House Republicans are seemingly unified in condemning U.S. prosecutor David Weiss’s appointment as a special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation, including several moderate members of the GOP conference. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Weiss as special counsel in the “ongoing investigation” into Hunter Biden, “as well as for any other matters that arose or may arise from that investigation.” Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) said he hopes Weiss “gets to the truth,” but expressed concern with his appointment. “I hope Special Counsel David Weiss informs Americans just how many millions of dollars Hunter Biden made on what his ex-partner called an “illusion” of access, and if the President financially benefited,”

Weiss has already proven that he is willing to twist the laws and give the Biden Crime Family a slap on the wrist for any crime. He shouldn't be allowed to do this.

if Weiss has the consent from Garland, he's already compromised and cannot be trusted to do a thorough and honest investigation

The special council will do what they always do. "All investigations by congress must stop because it will interfere with the special council." That happened back in the Clinton admin. I forget the topic. But finally after many months of seemingly no progress congress called the DOJ investigator to testify about the progress of the case. A guy showed up and he seemed to no nothing. When finally they asked when had he been assigned to the case he admitted it was that morning.

Weiss' job is to keep Hunter out of jail and from testifying against his father.

I knew they would appoint a tainted special prosecutor and wondered why they waited so long. That's how you bury an investigation, make people testify before a grand jury, and those people are barred from discussing anything they said to the grand jury. Lots of people appointed by Trump were deep state or RINOs because those picking nominees were compromised.

This is like Jim Jordan being appointed as special council against Trump! Weiss.. the one who drew up the plea deal for Hunter, Weiss the one who allowed Hunters tax debts to expire, Weiss the one who's been investigating Hunter for years...

What prosecutions came out of the hillary special prosecutor's work? If the pubs sit back and let this happen, they are the problem. You already know this man is crooked, so don't waste our tax dollars making these people rich with no benefit to US. Kevin McCarthy needs to stop talking and do something!

Oh. I see! Let's have another dysfunctional investigation led by an alleged truth-seeking Special Counsel who will eventually issue a "bombshell" report condemning the government's foot-dragging during the Hunter affair. This appalling and disgraceful report will not yield even a single minor conviction. Instead, we'll be told that all government bodies will henceforth be required to implement dozens of corrective actions to prevent similar future missteps. Riiight. Until the next time.

The Georgia indictment relates to Donald Trump’s (and 18 other defendants’) post-election efforts to reverse the apparent result of the 2020 election, in Georgia and elsewhere. That Trump made such attempts is not disputed. The question is, what did he do that was illegal? The indictment alleges a vast conspiracy, supported by 161 “overt acts,” that ultimately comprises Count I, a violation of Georgia’s RICO statute. The problem is that, with two exceptions, the “overt acts” are all legal. You can’t aggregate a series of legal acts and make them a crime by calling them a conspiracy.

“Democracy Dies in Darkness” is the (sometimes ironic) slogan of The Washington Post. But it’s also a fair description of what’s happening in Tennessee, as the state Legislature is being called to a special session even as local and federal officials withhold information that might be critical to its decision-making. Gov. Bill Lee ordered the special session to begin Aug. 21 in response to a March 27 mass shooting in which three adults and three children at the Covenant School, a Christian school in Nashville’s Green Hills neighborhood, were killed. The Nashville Tennessean article refers only to “a shooter.” The shooter was a female-to-male transgender shooter named Audrey Hale, aged 28

The former legal counsel for Al Gore who challenged – and lost – the presidential election results in 2000 says Gore's team did "the same thing" as what a Georgia prosecutor is claiming Trump committed as a crime. Donald Trump is facing a fourth indictment, this time from Fulton County, Georgia district attorney Fani Willis, involving allegations that Trump sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, speaking to Fox News Digital, criticized the pending indictment, calling Trump’s actions "very similar" to that of Al Gore’s legal strategy in the Bush v. Gore case that decided the 2000 presidential election.

The Georgia indictment unveiled Monday night by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis just before midnight on Monday claims former President Donald Trump and 18 others pursued a “conspiracy” with mundane acts such as tweeting about hearings. In one passage, for example, the indictment states (original emphasis): “On or about the 3rd day of December 2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused to be tweeted from the Twitter account @RealDonaldTrump, ‘Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Amazing!’ This was an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy.” Similar tweets are also included (original emphasis): On or about the 30th day of December 2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused to be tweeted

The entertainment conglomerate had announced in February that it would eliminate 7,000 jobs in its global workforce as part of an effort to save US$5.5 billion (S$7.4 billion) in costs and make its money-losing streaming business profitable.

The Georgia grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the Peach State handed up 10 indictments Monday night. After approximately 10 hours of hearing testimony and voting on potential charges, the bill was presented to Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney, who signed off on the charges shortly before 9 p.m. Hours earlier, the court clerk’s office appeared to prematurely post the potential charges Trump was facing in the case. The prematurely posted docket included 13 counts against the 77-year-old former president, including violation of the Peach State’s anti-racketeering law, conspiracy, false statements and asking

On Monday afternoon, the pace of that presentation appeared to be moving faster than expected, with witnesses who were initially planning to appear Tuesday called in a day early. The journalist George Chidi, who had originally been summoned to testify on Tuesday, was told to be there Monday, according to a tweet he posted. "Change of plans. I'm going to court today.

Well, that didn't take long. As RedState reported, Joe Biden stunned onlookers earlier on Monday by answering "No comment" to multiple inquiries about the devastating Maui fire. The Hawaiian Island has been battling deadly wildfires, with the death toll currently sitting at 89 people. One would think this would be an all-hands-on-deck affair, much like when a hurricane causes widespread devastation, but the president has been enjoying yet another vacation in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware.

I never post on Facebook, but I remain on it to follow a group that posts pictures of women’s clothes from the 1850s to the 1960s. When it comes to street scene photos from the 1930s onward, the comments invariably include people noting how well-turned-out everyone was: hats, gloves, polished outfits. The word the commenters are looking for is decorum. We are a society without decorum in our appearance, speech, and behavior. We are the kids who flunked out of kindergarten.

Georgia state prosecutors are set to bring charges including conspiracy to commit forgery against Donald Trump, Reuters reports. The charges appeared on a document posted to the Fulton County court website on Monday - but it was later taken down. Other charges listed included violation of the state's RICO act, and solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer. The document was dated 14 August and labelled the case as "open". It's unclear why it was removed from the website, and a spokesperson for the district attorney said it was "inaccurate" that charges had been filed.

It’s been a week since wildfires on Maui ravaged the island and sent residents streaming into the ocean to avoid the flames. So far, Joe Biden has “no comment” about the casualties and, presumably, he has nothing to say about the massive relief efforts that are surely underway. But are they underway? According to the Wall Street Journal, “State and federal aid is trickling into the region in the wake of the deadliest U.S. wildfire event in over 100 years.” So after a full week, aid is just “trickling in” from FEMA to deal with the destruction of most of the Western part of Maui?

Folks, now you know it. I know it. Everyone with a brain knows it. Even Democrats (deep down) know it. The 2020 election was stolen. The debate is over. How do I know?

Never in the 235 years since the ratification of the Constitution has an administration premeditatively and blatantly prosecuted, on specious and conjecturable charges, the titular leader of the opposition party and leading candidate for president. And doing so while overtly flaunting their egregious actions to protect and cover-up for the incumbent president who has been exposed as potentially complicit in massive bribery and fraud. In any previous election cycle, these overt and unabashed actions would have been the death knell for the incumbent president’s campaign and his party.
