The Office of the Special Counsel has been facing some heat from Congress lately. There’s been pressure to investigate how the Biden administration handled a certain investigation involving none other than Hunter Biden. But guess what? President Joe Biden didn’t seem to be bothered by that at all. In fact, he went ahead and nominated someone with ties to Hunter Biden to oversee the Special Counsel’s office. Can you smell the conflict of interest brewing?
The lucky nominee is Hampton Dellinger, who used to work with Hunter Biden at the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner. They were just like two peas in a pod, working together on some fancy Ukrainian energy company called Burisma Holdings. You might remember Burisma because that’s the company Hunter Biden served on the board of while his daddy was the Vice President. Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?
Emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop reveal that Dellinger and Biden Jr. hung out quite a bit at Boies Schiller Flexner. They had lunch dates and even went to dinner celebrations together. Well, isn’t that cute? It’s like a buddy cop movie, but with a lot more shady dealings. But hey, who needs an independent investigator when you can just appoint your pals instead?
🚨 BREAKING: Joe Biden has nominated Hampton Dellinger, a former colleague and friend of Hunter Biden, to lead a top federal watchdog tasked with protecting our nation’s civil servants from political targeting.
THE CORRUPTION CONTINUES!!!https://t.co/TPh6s5Xtz1

Oh, but it gets better. If Dellinger gets confirmed, he’ll have to face some tough questions from Congress. They want him to look into whether the Biden administration retaliated against two IRS whistleblowers who spoke up about the investigation into Hunter Biden. These whistleblowers are claiming that the Justice Department didn’t do a thorough job in investigating some tax evasion and foreign lobbying by Hunter Biden. Those are some serious allegations! But don’t worry, the Biden administration has denied everything and even threatened the whistleblowers with prosecution. Gotta love that transparency.
At the end of the day, it’s just business as usual in the swamp. The Biden administration seems to have no problem putting their friends and family in positions of power, even if it raises some serious conflict of interest concerns. But hey, at least they’re consistent. And by consistent, I mean consistently shady. Who’s ready for some real transparency and accountability in government? Anyone? Bueller?
