During a hearing on the Hill on Wednesday, Lousiana Senator John Kennedy asked Attorney General Merrick Garland why the DOJ let the statute of limitations run out on Hunter Biden’s tax crimes.

“Mr. Hunter Biden did not pay taxes on $1 million in 2014 and 2015, and he deducted payments from his income tax for personal expenses when he did file for hookers, for a Lamborghini, for strip clubs, for sex clubs, for porn website memberships,” Kennedy said. “Why did the Department of Justice let the statute of limitations run so you can’t prosecute?”

“As you well know, Senator, that investigation is being conducted by Mr. Weiss, who was appointed by President Trump to be the U.S. attorney in Delaware,” Garland answered. “Much of the investigation you’re talking about occurred during the previous administration under Mr. Weiss. Mr. Weiss has continued his investigations, is now a special counsel. He will issue a report, which will explain those.”

“So are you saying it’s Trump’s fault?” Kennedy asked.

“No, I don’t know whether there’s fault or not. Mr. Weiss will explain this in his report,” Garland said.

“Again, I’m not going to comment on decisions made in a pending investigation,” Garland added. “In the end, Mr. Weiss will issue a report. I will provide a report to Congress. You will be able to question Mr. Weiss as to his reasoning and he will be able to defend his reasoning.”
