Instead, U.S. Attorney John Lausch was in charge of the search. Sincerely, I have no idea how this is possible.
Merrick Garland asserts that Hur’s appointment was not a hasty one and that the plan was already in place when the official announcement was made on January 12, 2023. Nevertheless, the special counsel is utterly absent from the investigation while more records, some of which date back to Biden’s time in the US Senate, are discovered.
Does that make any sense at all? If Hur wasn’t prepared to assume control of what was plainly a very fluid, continuing situation, what was the point of having him on board? There is strong evidence of criminal intent on the table right now thanks to recently discovered records from the president’s time serving in the Senate. In theory, given the purported isolation from the larger, politically appointed-led DOJ, this is the time when the special counsel is most required.
Hur should be able to assume operational management within ten days, even if he must first direct and supervise events while building his staff. There are some strong warning signs since he hasn’t done this. How serious really is this special counsel? Hur was brought in as cover while the DOJ tried to wind things down, or did he ever want to undertake a full-fledged investigation?
I’ve said from the start that I think the special counsel is just there to sign off on Biden’s vindication. Garland appears to be uninvolved when the conclusion is still all but certain because of this. I’m even more certain of that now after learning that Hur is watching as the situation worsens from the sidelines.
The DOJ isn’t committed to treating Biden’s criminal activity fairly and seriously. They simply want this to go away, but the president’s stupid decision to maintain sensitive information from his time as a senator has complicated their plans.
