Washington, D.C. – This morning, Special Counsel David Weiss sat for a closed-door, transcribed interview with the MAGA House Judiciary Committee. Per multiple members of the committee, the testimony revealed what was already known: Weiss had full authority to pursue charges in the Hunter Biden investigation.

In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement: 

“Today’s testimony with Mr. Weiss only revealed what MAGA House Republicans already knew. Weiss asserted, clearly, that he had full decision-making authority in the Hunter Biden investigation and that there was no interference in Mr. Weiss’ decision whether or not to pursue charges. MAGA Republicans have spent months investigating weaponization of the federal government by the Biden administration and have not turned up a single shred of evidence of wrongdoing. With yet another government shutdown fast approaching, MAGA Republicans are focused on their political partisan stunts rather than addressing the issues keeping working families up at night like health care and the cost of living.”
