The controversy surrounding Hunter Biden in the lead-up to the 2020 election might have been buried by a vast majority of the media in the days since, but there are still a few out there — including Fox News’ Tucker Carlson — who are not keen on letting any potential Biden corruption be swept under the rug.
According to the Washington Examiner, during a show this week, Carlson uncovered the extremely disturbing revelation that President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice has hired the former business partner of the criminal defense attorney who represented Hunter Biden.
Nicholas McQuaid, a former federal prosecutor who worked with Hunter Biden’s attorney, Christopher Clark, as partners at the law firm Latham & Watkins, was recently selected by the Biden administration head up the DOJ’s criminal division.
Remember, Hunter Biden is still under federal investigation, which is overseen by the DOJ’s criminal division. This means that a close associate of Hunter Biden’s personal attorney is now in the upper ranks — the acting assistant attorney general — of the very division that will oversee Hunter Biden’s federal investigation.
But as Carlson confirmed, the situation gets even worse, as Biden’s DOJ — when contacted for comment on the matter — refused to answer one simple question that should be answered immediately.
“We reached out to the Justice Department for a comment on this,” Carlson said. “They refused to say whether McQuaid would recuse himself for matters involving Hunter Biden and his former partner, who is representing Hunter Biden. It’s all pretty amazing. Another reminder, there’s a lot going on within the Biden family.”
As the Washington Examiner previously reported, Hunter Biden has been the subject of a federal investigation since sometime in 2018. After the news of that investigation broke, then-candidate Joe Biden promised that there would be no conflicts of interest in any cases regarding his son.
“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict, with inappropriate distance from the presidency and government,” Biden said at the time.
As it stands with McQuaid’s new role at the top of the DOJ brass chart, one could easily argue that President Joe Biden certainly didn’t hold true to that promise.
