Special Counsel David Weiss is opposing Hunter Biden’s request for documents related to Donald Trump, arguing that the charges against Biden are not due to selective prosecution.

Hunter Biden’s defense claims the charges stem from a vindictive or selective prosecution, but Weiss’s filing disputes this, stating that no charges were brought against Biden during the prior administration.

Hunter Biden’s attorneys claim his charges are, “possibly a vindictive or selective prosecution arising from an unrelenting pressure campaign beginning in the last administration.”

“His motion is meritless and should be denied,” the document filed by Weiss’s office said, labeling the motion an “unsupported, improper attempt to circumvent the rules applicable to criminal subpoenas.”

“Defendant’s attempts to manufacture discriminatory treatment or intent on behalf of the U.S. Attorney fall apart under the most minimal scrutiny,” wrote Weiss’ office.

Special Counsel’s office emphasized that the request for documents was “notably deficient.”

“[N]ot only does defendant’s motion fail to identify any actual evidence of bias, vindictiveness, or discriminatory intent on the Special Counsel’s part, his arguments ignore an inconvenient truth: No charges were brought against defendant during the prior administration when the subpoena recipients actually held office in the Executive Branch,” wrote Weiss’ office in response.

“Defendant has not shown, nor can he, how external statements by political opponents of President Biden improperly pressured him, his Attorney General, or the Special Counsel to pursue charges against the President’s son,” continued the government’s attorneys.

“In addition to offering no evidence that the now-Special Counsel had any animus or improper motivation against defendant, he offers no evidence that the current Attorney General acted out of any improper motive in empowering the Special Counsel to continue pursuing prosecution,” continued the filing.

“Defendant himself acknowledged committing criminal conduct relevant to this case when he authored a book admitting that he was addicted to crack cocaine in 2018, the year in which he illegally purchased a gun,” highlighted the prosecutors.

Additionally, Weiss was criticized by IRS whistleblowers, who claimed that decisions benefited the subject of the investigation.

These whistleblowers are scheduled to testify in a closed-door session of the House Ways and Means Committee regarding the Biden family’s finances.
