The Blackout

Delayed legal actions for Hunter Biden

On July 16, 2021, Politico published an exclusive. According to their source, that allegedly had witnessed the discussions on the matter, US Attorney David Weiss decided to pause a criminal investigation of Hunter Biden in the summer of 2020 in order to "avoid taking any actions that could alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election".

The article states: "The probe, which is focused on possible tax law violations, has also examined Hunter Biden’s business dealings with foreign interests — a topic that has animated Biden detractors — and its existence first came to light amid a controversy about the leak of Hunter Biden’s laptop files."

Since the emails suggested a possible involvement of Joe Biden, if the decision was in the best interest of the American voters could have been debated. It was not, though.
