In yet another example of the blatantly incestuous behavior of the D.C. swamp, Joe Biden has just appointed Nicholas McQuaid, a colleague of one of his son Hunter Biden’s lawyers, to temporarily head the criminal division of the Department of Justice.

Tucker Breaks the Story

The story was originally broken on the Fox News primetime show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” To get the full context behind it, one must recall that late last year, Hunter Biden admitted that he was under federal investigation. That investigation centered around corrupt and nepotistic business dealings that he had in countries like China and Ukraine.

There are very strong indications that Hunter Biden was able to leverage the political power of his father Joe, who was the vice president at the time these deals happened, in order to bring his foreign business partners to the table.

But after he was put under federal investigation for these activities, Hunter Biden hired a lawyer named Christopher Clark to defend him.

As Tucker Carlson pointed out on his show, “Both McQuaid and Clark were law partners together at Latham and Watkins, they worked the same cases right up until McQuaid took the job at the Department of Justice.”

In short, the current head of the DOJ—the organization that’s supposed to be investigating Hunter Biden right now—is a former law partner of Hunter Biden’s current defense attorney.

When Axios attempted to reach Christopher Clark for comment, he did not respond.

The DOJ’s ethics guidelines prevent federal officials from being involved in cases concerning their former employees. As such, this whole arrangement presents a blatant conflict of interest and has invited suspicion that Joe Biden is simply setting things up to clear his son of all charges of wrongdoing while manufacturing the appearance of an impartial investigation.
