(TheRedWire.com) – On Monday, prosecutors leading the probe into Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, indicated that he is willing to provide his testimony this fall.
On Monday, the Department of Justice indicated Hunter Biden’s intention in a letter sent to Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the House Judiciary Committee Chairman. Further, the Justice Department offered to open up U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss’s availability for several days in September and October for a public hearing to take place following the recent IRS whistleblower claims that prosecutors had slow-walked the investigation into Hunter Biden and had not treated it in the same way as all other cases.
Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte pointed out in the letter that it is deeply concerning that the work of the Department of Justice has been misrepresented either deliberately or because of misunderstanding. He added that this could hurt public confidence in the department focused on bringing justice.
Uriarte further pointed out that the Department believed it would be in the best public interest of Congress and the American people if Weiss directly addressed all of the questions and claims regarding handling this case.
Last month, Hunter Biden entered a plea deal, which critics have referred to as a sweetheart deal, where he would agree to plead guilty to two minor tax crimes and to join a different pretrial diversion program that is connected to the unlawful possession of a firearm, this latter charge could be dropped based on specific requirements being met.
