So, Who Exactly is this ‘Trump Hand-Picked’ US Attorney David Weiss?

For those of us fortunate enough to watch the House Oversight Committee investigating Hunter and Joe Biden receiving preferential treatment from both the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service, it was rather illuminating.

Without fail, nearly every single Democrat somehow managed to bring up Orange Man Bad. It was a textbook example of distraction.

More than a few members of the Jackass Party made a point of referring to US Attorney David Weiss as the Trump Hand-picked nominee to be the US Attorney for Delaware.

Interesting that both of the US Senators from the state of Delaware, Democrats Tom Carper and Chris Coons, were the ones who did their level best to get Weiss to be nominated.

So just how influential are senators when it comes to nominating US Attornies? From (emphasis mine);

“It’s true that Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons, both Democrats, played a part in selecting Weiss, because of a longstanding Senate policy that allows home-state senators to sign off on presidential appointments of U.S. attorneys.”

Follow the money.

Further information on Weiss from the Washington Examiner (emphasis mine);

“David Weiss is the little-known United States attorney for Delaware who brought criminal charges against Hunter Biden amid whistleblower allegations that the Justice Department’s investigation was politicized.”

“Hunter Biden reached a plea deal on federal charges related to tax crimes and the illegal purchase of a handgun, Weiss’s office wrote in a court filing on Tuesday.”

“The experienced federal prosecutor, 66, was nominated by then-President Donald Trump in November 2017. Sens. Tom Carper (D-DE) and Chris Coons (D-DE) had urged Trump to accept Weiss for the role. He was easily confirmed by the Senate in February 2018.”

“Weiss had already taken over as acting U.S. attorney in March 2017. He had previously twice served as first assistant U.S. attorney under President George W. Bush from 2007 to 2009 and President Barack Obama from 2012 to 2018, and had been the acting and interim U.S. attorney under Obama from 2009 to 2011.”

“In February 2021, Joe Biden asked all Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys appointed by Trump for their resignations, with the exception of Weiss.”

Legit tax deduction? Somehow, this offends Democrats.
