According to information obtained by Fox News, the U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss is in charge of making the charging decisions in the Hunter Biden investigation while Attorney General Merrick Garland and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco are taking a hands-off attitude.
Periodically, updates on the progress of the inquiry on President Biden’s son are provided to Garland and Monaco. Since 2018, Hunter Biden has been the subject of a federal investigation.
Currently leading the probe is Weiss, a prosecutor who former President Donald Trump selected.
FEDS WEIGH CHARGES AGAINST HUNTER BIDEN; SOURCE: ‘IMMINENT’ DECISION IN YEAR-LONG CASE
The investigation had reached a “critical point,” according to a July report by Fox News, and federal prosecutors were considering whether to indict Hunter Biden for multiple tax and foreign lobbying offenses, as well as for making false statements and other offenses.
According to a source close to the investigation, there is growing dissatisfaction with how long it is taking Delaware to decide whether or not to charge Hunter Biden.
According to a July report by Fox News, the federal grand jury investigating Hunter Biden’s business transactions completed its most recent term in June and expired. At the time, a source claimed that no charges had been brought.
On the other hand, according to a former senior Justice Department official who spoke to Fox News on Thursday, the government can bring charges as part of a plea deal even without an active grand jury.
A disposition or resolution may be “imminent” before to a potential Republican takeover of the House of Representatives, according to the official who spoke to Fox News about the renewed media attention on the inquiry.
If a new grand jury has been appointed, a representative for Weiss declined to comment.
In July, Fox News reported that Weiss and Justice Department officials were considering whether to accuse Hunter Biden of a number of tax offenses and, more gravely, potential transgressions involving foreign lobbying. Hunter Biden might be charged with making false statements, the source stated at the time.
According to a story from The Washington Post on Thursday, a potential false statement allegation may be connected to whether he lied when buying a rifle in 2018.
When a gun belonging to Hunter Biden was discarded in a trash can outside a Delaware market in 2018, Fox News was the first to disclose that police had been called.

According to a source with knowledge of the police report from October 23, 2018, Hallie Biden, the wife of President Biden’s late son Beau, who was dating Hunter at the time, was accused of tossing a gun owned by Hunter into a bin outside a market close to a school.
According to a weapons transaction report examined by Fox News, Hunter Biden bought a gun earlier in the month. Hunter Biden responded “no” when asked if he was “an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressive, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other prohibited substance” on the weapon transaction report.
After testing positive for cocaine in 2014, Hunter Biden was released from the Navy.
According to Chris Clark, the attorney for Hunter Biden, “for a federal agent to leak material about a grand jury inquiry such as this one” is a federal crime.

Any agent you include in your story as a source has allegedly committed such a felony, according to Clark. “We anticipate the Department of Justice will thoroughly look into and bring charges against such wrongdoers.”
In addition to the evidence presented by the agents, Clark stated, “we believe the prosecutors in this case are assiduously and thoroughly assessing all the other witnesses in this case, including witnesses for the defense. “Prosecutors are responsible for doing that. They shouldn’t be pushed or hurried through their work or given negative feedback.”
As the defense’s primary attorney in this case, Clark continued, “I have had no interaction at all with any federal investigative agent.”
HUNTER BIDEN IS THE SUBJECT OF A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION FOR “TAX AFFAIRS,” RESOURCES SAY; LINKS TO CHINA FUNDS
As a result, Clark claimed, “a rendering of the case from such an agent is necessarily prejudiced, one-sided, and false.” It is terrible that law enforcement officers appear to be breaking the law to unfairly pursue someone based only on the name of his family.
A representative of the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment on the potential allegations.
According to a trusted government source, Fox News first revealed in December 2020 that Hunter Biden was a subject or target of the grand jury inquiry. Hunter Biden’s federal probe was partly sparked by reports of suspicious activities including dubious international transfers.
