Federal prosecutors are scheduled for private interviews with the House Judiciary Committee this week as part of the panel’s examination of potential political influences on the Hunter Biden investigation.
According to reports from Fox News, Martin Estrada, the U.S. attorney for the Central District of California, will undergo a transcribed interview on Tuesday, while Stuart Goldberg, a DOJ Tax Division attorney, is set to participate in his interview on Wednesday.
These requests for DOJ officials to provide answers before the committee stem from allegations of politicization and misconduct within the Justice Department during the extensive probe involving the president’s son.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, has been engaged in negotiations with the Justice Department for several months, seeking the participation of federal prosecutors connected to the Biden investigation in providing testimony before the committee.
Special Counsel David Weiss, who is overseeing the government’s investigation into Biden, is anticipated to have his transcribed interview behind closed doors on November 7.
Notably, the Justice Department had initially offered Weiss for public testimony in July. A source from the Justice Department informed Fox News that they preferred Weiss to testify in a public setting.
Attorney General Merrick Garland designated Weiss as special counsel in August, granting him authority over the Biden investigation and any associated matters that may have arisen or could arise during the course of the probe.
Weiss, who serves as the U.S. attorney for Delaware, has been leading the Biden investigation since 2018. His appointment as special counsel followed allegations that political considerations had influenced or impeded prosecutorial decisions in the lengthy examination of the president’s son.
In his initial action as special counsel, Weiss charged Biden with multiple offenses, including making false statements in connection with a firearm purchase, making false statements related to information required by a federal firearms dealer, and unlawful possession of a firearm by an individual addicted to a controlled substance.
The president’s son entered a plea of not guilty to all charges earlier this month.
Weiss has indicated that the investigation into the president’s son remains ongoing.
This interview with Weiss occurs within the context of House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry against President Biden. However, the status of the impeachment inquiry has become uncertain following the removal of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California, from his position as House speaker.
