Rep. Langworthy Reacts to Hunter Biden’s Special Counsel Investigation


Attorney General Merrick Garland announced on Friday that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss has been appointed special counsel in the investigation of President Biden’s son Hunter and his business dealings.

Congressman Nick Langworthy, who represents Schuyler and Steuben Counties in the 23rd Congressional District, released a statement in the hours after the special counsel announcement was made.

“Attorney General Garland’s decision is a clear attempt to cover up mounting evidence from the House Oversight Committee, exposing President Biden’s involvement in his family’s pay-for-play schemes with foreign nationals,” said Rep. Langworthy. “The Department’s misconduct already allowed the clock to run out on serious crimes committed by Hunter Biden, while officials ignored incriminating leads and negotiated a lenient plea deal. This move underscores the Biden Justice Department’s bid to obstruct congressional oversight of the President’s corruption and compromised leadership. The Oversight Committee will not be stopped in its investigation and pursuit of the facts for the American people.”

The White House would not comment on Friday’s special counsel announcement.
