If no one else has noticed that there are countless conflicts of interest in the entire Hunter Biden laptop fiasco, a couple of wily old U.S. Senators have. Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson posed an open question to the prosecutors in the state of Delaware regarding one case.
Johnson (R-Wis.) and Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to US Attorney David Weiss, saying that Attorney General Merrick Garland ignored three letters they sent last year regarding McQuaid’s possible recusal from the Weiss-led investigation.
“Dear Mr. Weiss: On Feb. 3, 2021, March 9, 2021, and Nov. 10, 2021, we wrote letters to Attorney General Garland with respect to Nicholas McQuaid…and his conflicts of interest in the Hunter Biden criminal case,” the senators wrote.
“In those letters, we specifically raised concerns about the fact that Mr. McQuaid worked with Hunter Biden’s criminal attorney until he was hired by the Biden administration on Jan. 20, 2021,” Johnson and Grassley wrote.
“This association creates a clear conflict of interest yet the Department has failed to provide adequate responses to answer the threshold questions about whether Mr. McQuaid has or had any role in the Hunter Biden criminal case and whether he has been recused from it.”
That seems to be a fairly simple question to answer. Has the man recused himself or not? Hunter Biden had business affairs with people all over government, both state and local, for decades. Finding people who do not have a conflict of interest may be a difficult task, and it would be helpful if those who are in the conflicted camps would actually admit as much and do the right and responsible thing and bow out.
