Special counsel appointed for Hunter Biden investigation as trial expected

In a surprising move, Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed Trump-appointed U.S. attorney David Weiss as a special counsel, potentially extending and intensifying the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden. Weiss, who currently serves as the U.S. attorney for the District of Delaware, requested the special counsel status for his investigation into the president's son.

During an impromptu press conference, Garland announced that Weiss will continue serving as the U.S. attorney for the District of Delaware while conducting the investigation. He also assured the public that a final report will be produced by Weiss at the conclusion of the investigation, with an emphasis on making as much of it public as possible.

This development has attracted significant attention, as any investigation into the president's family members carries political implications. The appointment of a special counsel suggests that the investigation may delve deeper into the activities of Hunter Biden, potentially leading to more serious consequences. However, it is important to note that this is a developing story, and further updates are expected.
