Merrick Garland Hit With Extremely Serious Allegations

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Anyone who is paying attention and not being sidetracked by other news stories should be extremely concerned about the Biden family scandal regarding Hunter Biden’s international business dealings and Joe Biden’s part in those dealings. The evidence found on Hunter’s laptop combined with other financial evidence is enough to make conservative members of Congress call for impeachment.

But, unlike the attempts to throw everything but the kitchen sink at former President Donald Trump, Democrats want the whole scandal swept under the rug and are blatantly announcing such.

This week, former U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) went on MSNBC to issue a furious warning to everyone looking into Hunter Biden and the influence-peddling scandal: “Everybody needs to back off!”

And roadblocks to addressing the scandal are being installed by none other than the Attorney General, Merrick Garland.

As Jonathan Turley wrote in his column this week:

Newly released evidence from the investigation indicates that McCaskill was not the only powerful figure issuing that warning. Two whistleblowers reportedly detailed highly disturbing actions from top officials to slow walk and undermine the investigation.

Many of us have already noted the absence of certain charges in the plea deal given to Hunter Biden. In addition to the lack of any charge as an unregistered foreign agent, there is no evidence that the Justice Department seriously investigated the influence-peddling efforts of the Biden family despite allegations of millions generated from foreign sources.

Now these whistleblowers are reportedly telling Congress that they were actively frustrated in their efforts to investigate as Merrick Garland was insisting that there was no interference or limitations.

This included preventing an effort to search a guest house of President Joe Biden. IRS official Gary Shapley allegedly recalled that Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf agreed that there was “more than enough probable cause for the physical search warrant there, but the question was whether the juice was worth the squeeze.”

Wolf allegedly said that they could never get approval for the search despite the sufficiency of the evidence.

Turley points out that the allegation that Delaware US Attorney David Weiss sought to bring charges against the 53-year-old in both the District of Columbia and Southern California last year and was denied both times directly contradicts statements made to Congress by Attorney General Garland.

Democrats whine that Weiss was a Trump appointee and thus the light plea bargain shows that there was no case to be made. However, Turley says, these sources are suggesting that Weiss tried and was rebuffed in his effort to prosecute in two different jurisdictions.

Turley notes that the only way to find truth would be to call Weiss, Wolf, and others to Congress to testify, and address impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden.

“As if there is not enough stalling in the matter, and evidence to move forward, now there is a new contradiction. Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.) read from an alleged July 30, 2017 Whatsapp message from Hunter Biden to one of his Chinese associates, Henry Zhao, the director of Harvest Fund Management and Communist Party official. Zhao was funneling money to Hunter’s firm BHR Partners.”

Turley says Hunter is quoted as writing:

“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.”

Turley likens the smoke and mirrors to a Houdini trick, and blames the media as well as the Democrats for trying to hide the scandal and focus the public on other matters. He writes:

“A year after the New York Post broke the laptop story, I wrote a column marveling at the success of the Bidens in pulling off one of the neatest tricks in political history. I analogized it to how Houdini used to make his 10,000-pound elephant Jennie disappear on a stage in front of a live audience.

The key to the trick is that Houdini knew the audience wanted her to disappear”, adding, “In the same way, the media wanted the Hunter Biden scandal to disappear — they still do. They are invested in the trick.”

Turley likens the scandal to an elephant in the middle of the room. “Of course, it still remains a challenge to hide an elephant if even one audience member goes looking. Polls show that the public overwhelmingly wants to pull back the curtain and see the elephant.”
