The Justice Department has not confirmed that special counsel David Weiss will testify in October about his investigation of Hunter Biden.
Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte shared a vague response concerning Weiss testifying that stopped short of a commitment to his testimony.

“The volume and requested pace of the Committee’s proposed scheduled far exceeds the Department’s resources, especially in light of the Committee’s other pending requests and subpoenas to the Department on other topics,” Uriarte wrote. “We remain committed to providing information voluntarily, without unnecessary escalation.”
“However, any additional testimony and documents shared at this early juncture must continue to be appropriately limited to protect the ongoing matter and important confidentiality interests,” he added.
DOJ signals that it will allow Special Counsel David Weiss to speak to the House Judiciary Committee. Weiss also helmed the Hunter Biden probe as U.S. attorney for Delaware. https://t.co/w7IkpZUu4h

"House Republicans have pointed to testimony from IRS whistleblowers who claim Weiss said he lacked authority to bring charges against Hunter Biden. Weiss, for his part, has stated in correspondence to lawmakers that he had full freedom to carry out the probe," Punchbowl News reported.
"A plea agreement between Hunter Biden and the Justice Department — which was heavily criticized by GOP lawmakers — fell apart in late July. The younger Biden was indicted on felony gun charges on Sept. 14, and more charges may follow," it added.
The big question to today is what the hell happened after that assurance was given to David Weiss?https://t.co/QV2czn09Mh

"If you look at the way he’s conducted that investigation and if you look at the IRS whistleblowers’ testimony, it’s very clear David Weiss is on Hunter’s team," Megyn Kelly reported.
"Then he tried to sneak through this settlement agreement that would have given Hunter immunity for everything – Burisma, foreign agent, all this stuff – with just a slap on the wrist for the remaining lame tax charges and the gun charges," she argued.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) claims that Weiss has contradicted himself concerning charges against Hunter Biden.
Weiss has argued at times that he could bring charges against the first son. At other times, he has argued that he did not have the authority to do so.
The inconsistencies with Weiss in the investigation appear to continue as he may or may not testify during Hunter Biden's October hearing.
