What is the Ministry of Justice hiding?
Republican senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney David Weiss about the Hunter Biden investigation.
They wanted to know if Nicholas McQueed, the acting assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, had resigned from the Hunter Biden investigation.
McQuaid previously worked with Hunter Biden’s attorney, Chris Clark.
The Justice Department appears to have thwarted efforts by two Republican senators to get answers about Hunter Biden’s tax audit from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, according to the Washington Examiner.
Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent a letter in May to U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who is leading an investigation involving the president’s son.
In their letter, the two senators pressured Weiss to reveal whether the Ministry of Justice is senior. [DOJ] a Hunter Biden liaison officer withdrew from the tax investigation.
Instead of receiving the answers, the Ministry of Justice responded by saying that “the department’s lawyers receive training in ethics and professional responsibility as appropriate” and that it could not provide more information to the senators.
“This is in line with your letter to the Department of Justice dated May 9, 2022, regarding the hiring of certain employees of the department and about certain actions that may or may not be taken by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Delaware County,” Assistant Attorney General Peter Hyun said in a letter last week to Grassley and Johnson, with the spokesman saying the Justice Department responded to similar letters in February 2021, March 2021, July 2021 and February 2022. .
Hyun told senators: “The department’s lawyers receive ethics training and professional responsibility as appropriate, sign a pledge to maintain public confidence in government and are subject to strict ethics and withdrawal protocols” and that “it will not be able to provide you with any additional information on the employment of the staff of the department or specific dismissal decisions. “
The double standard of justice continues.
