Jesse Watters, the Fox News host, recently expressed his skepticism towards the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation on ‘Jesse Watters Primetime.’ Watters argues that this appointment is not an investigation but rather a cover-up, as the Delaware prosecutor chosen for the role has a long history of covering for the Bidens. He highlights how the same prosecutor, David Weiss, failed to follow up on crucial leads, never opened Hunter Biden’s laptop, and did not investigate allegations of bribery. Watters questions the integrity and impartiality of Weiss, suggesting that he is not qualified for the position and that his appointment serves to stall the investigation for political reasons.
Moreover, Watters criticizes Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to hand-pick Weiss, asserting that this move effectively prevents Republican lawmakers from subpoenaing Biden family financial records and requesting testimony from Weiss. He points out that the special counsel appointment is likely to delay any resolution and testimony related to the Hunter Biden matter, further fueling suspicions of obstruction of justice. Watters believes that this entire situation is part of a larger cover-up orchestrated by the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the White House. He predicts that the ultimate outcome will be a report exonerating Joe Biden, along with the media’s support in portraying the investigation as a thorough examination. However, House Republicans, viewing this as obstruction of justice, are considering an impeachment inquiry to push for documents and witnesses, potentially unveiling a different narrative.

This article will provide background information on Fox News, discuss the appointment of the special counsel, examine the criticisms surrounding the appointment, analyze Weiss’s history of covering for the Bidens, evaluate Weiss’s qualifications and integrity, discuss the potential obstruction of justice, and suggest an impeachment inquiry as a way forward.

Appointment of Special Counsel
The recent appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation has raised concerns and controversy. Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, hand-picked David Weiss, a Delaware prosecutor who has been involved with the Bidens for the past 25 years. After considering Weiss’s request to continue his work as a special counsel, Garland concluded that it was in the public interest to appoint him. This decision has raised questions about the integrity and impartiality of the investigation.
Criticism of the Appointment
Jesse Watters, the host of ‘Jesse Watters Primetime’ on Fox News, expressed strong criticisms of the appointment of David Weiss as the special counsel. He argued that Weiss has a history of covering for the Bidens and questioned his qualifications and integrity. Watters also raised concerns about the potential obstruction of justice and the possibility of this appointment being a cover-up rather than a genuine investigation.
Weiss’s History of Covering for the Bidens
Watters highlighted some instances where David Weiss allegedly covered for the Biden family in the past. In 2008, when Joe Biden approached a Delaware beer baron for a donation, Weiss reportedly sent the beer baron to prison for suggesting that employees donate as straw donors. However, Weiss did not take any action against Joe Biden, who was implicated in the scheme. Years later, Weiss attempted to secure a plea deal for Hunter Biden that would provide blanket immunity, but it fell apart under public scrutiny. These incidents raise concerns about Weiss’s impartiality and his willingness to hold the Bidens accountable.
Qualifications and Integrity of David Weiss
Watters questioned the qualifications and integrity of David Weiss to be appointed as a special counsel. To become a special counsel, one must have a reputation for integrity and impartial decision-making, as well as the ability to conduct thorough and expedient investigations. According to Watters, Weiss does not meet these criteria. He argues that Weiss’s investigation of Hunter Biden only resulted in two tax misdemeanors and a squashed gun crime, which calls into question his ability to prosecute expeditiously and thoroughly.
Obstruction of Justice
Watters argues that the appointment of David Weiss as a special counsel serves as a form of obstruction of justice. He believes that this appointment is designed to delay the resolution of the Hunter Biden matter and prevent Weiss from being questioned by House Republicans. Watters suggests that the scope of the investigation should be made public, as it may reveal limitations on Weiss’s ability to pursue leads related to Joe Biden, such as offshore bank accounts or the Biden family’s involvement with the Wilmington Trust Account.
Impeachment Inquiry as a Way Forward
In response to the appointment of the special counsel, Watters proposes an impeachment inquiry as a way forward. He argues that an impeachment inquiry would give House Republicans the investigatory power they need to obtain documents and witnesses. This would allow them to continue their pursuit of the truth without being hindered by the special counsel.
The appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation has been met with criticism from Jesse Watters and others who question the integrity and impartiality of David Weiss. They argue that Weiss has a history of covering for the Bidens and lacks the qualifications required for the position. Watters suggests that this appointment may be a form of obstruction of justice and proposes an impeachment inquiry as a way forward. As the investigation continues, it remains to be seen what impact these criticisms and proposals will have on the proceedings.
