On Friday, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he would be appointing a special counsel in the federal investigation of Hunter Biden. The special counsel Garland tapped for the job is David Weiss, the U.S. attorney already heading the investigation. Weiss reportedly asked for special counsel status after an attempted plea bargain in which Biden would plead to tax evasion and gun charges fell apart. That prompted questions as to the actual strength of Weiss’ case.
Republicans have been demanding the appointment of a special counsel for months, and so of course are meeting the news with incandescent outrage that it … happened.
