According to a bombshell report published this week, federal attorneys had enough evidence to seek warrants and issue grand jury subpoenas in the cases involving President Joe Biden’s crack-smoking, swindling son, Hunter, as early as last summer.

“The probe had reached a point where prosecutors could have sought search warrants and issued a flurry of grand jury subpoenas. Some officials involved in the case wanted to do just that. Others urged caution,” according to Politico.

However, lead prosecutor David C. Weiss ultimately chose to do nothing for the time being on account of the then-going 2020 presidential election.

“Weiss decided to wait, averting the possibility that the investigation would become a months-long campaign issue,” Politico reported Friday.

“To his credit, he listened,” a person reportedly involved in the discussions told the outlet.

“Weiss’s decision to avoid revealing the investigation in a highly charged political atmosphere — a move that might have boosted Donald Trump’s campaign, even at the cost of politicizing the probe — was consistent with his sober-minded approach to his job, said people familiar with Weiss’s career,” the outlet added.

While his decision may be “consistent” with the way Weiss has always operated, that doesn’t necessarily mean it wasn’t motivated by something more sinister, according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Later Friday evening on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” he pointed to how intelligence officials had handled the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter’s laptop as an example of why government officials cannot be trusted.

Listen (the crotch comment can be heard in the clip):

“In October, a group of corrupt intelligence officials, 50 of them, signed a letter blaming Vladimir Putin for the laptop. ‘Hunter Biden story is Russian disinformation, dozens of former intel officials say.’ That was the headline in Politico,” he said.

“It was a lie from top to bottom, totally unsupported by evidence of any kind. But it came just in time for the presidential debate. That was the point. Joe Biden picked it up and wielded it like a club from the stage,” he added.

Two months later, after the conclusion of the 2020 election, it finally leaked that no, the laptop story wasn’t “Russian disinformation.” It was fact.

“It was real. Real enough to be used as evidence in an ongoing investigation into, ‘potential money laundering and Hunter Biden’s foreign ties.’ Hunter Biden, we learned, was facing possible indictment for what was on the laptop,” Carlson noted.

So why had officials essentially lied in October? The Fox News host believes they’d lied specifically because of Weiss’s decision to “bury” Hunter’s case at the time. And that decision, he further claims, was made specifically to protect Biden himself.

“Just say it out loud now: He didn’t want to hurt Joe Biden. And he did this at the request of the Biden family and their lawyers,” Carlson speculated.

As proof, he pointed to the unnamed person who’d praised Weiss for having “listened” to those who’d urged him to not move forward with the Hunter investigation.

“In other words, he ‘listened’ to the Bidens and their lawyers. Because he did that, apparently, David Weiss has kept his job as a federal prosecutor,” Carlson claimed.

It’s true that Weiss is one of a very few Trump appointees who still remain employed in the Biden administration. Most have been purged, particularly the white male ones.

Concluding his remarks, Carlson claimed that Hunter’s allegedly preferential treatment by Weiss is yet another example of how upside-down the Department of Justice has become.

“Hunter Biden doesn’t have to worry about the SWAT team showing up at his house at down with a CNN camera crew in tow. He can violate all the federal gun laws he wants and never be charged. Merrick Garland works for his dad. He’s fine,” he said.

“He can do literally whatever he wants — and as we’ve seen, he definitely has. But there’s a different standard for you. If you step out of line, you’re done. They mean it too. Ask Ashli Babbitt’s family — or Chewbacca Guy, the harmless shaman of January 6th. He’s still in solitary,” Carlson added.

But in fairness to Weiss, the investigation into Hunter is still ongoing.

“[T]he probe continues, with most expecting that Weiss will not drop the case until making a full assessment of Hunter Biden’s culpability,” according to Politico.

While it’s seemingly taking a long time for him to make a “full assessment,” keep in mind that John Durham’s probe into the Russia predicate has been just as lengthy.

But by the same token, Durham’s inability to render a judgment is a “disappointment” that may bode badly vis-a-vis the separate Hunter case, according to Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.

“Who knows? We have been disappointed in actions from the DOJ. Frankly, we have been waiting for the Durham report now for over a year. We will have to wait and see,” he said Friday on Fox News’ “Fox News Primetime.”

Listen:

That being said, he continued, there’s more than enough evidence to indict Hunter.

“We had an eyewitness last fall, Tony Bobulinski. We had actual documents, emails that everyone knew was accurate that talked about the ‘big guy,’ Joe Biden, linked to Hunter Biden’s business dealings. We had all that information,”  he said.

“It’s good at least this information is public. But, you know, again, you put all that together: the laptop, the eyewitness, the emails we know are accurate and real. Let’s hope there is a real investigation that’s done in the appropriate way,” he added.
