Hunter Biden investigation: Top FBI agent offers contradictory answers on Weiss’s authority

A top FBI agent on the Hunter Biden case offered contradictory answers during an interview with the House Judiciary Committee last week about whether Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, before his appointment as special counsel, could charge the president’s son anywhere he wanted.

The closed-door interview of FBI Special Agent in Charge Thomas Sobocinski raised eyebrows this week when reporting on a leaked transcript of his testimony suggested Sobocinski had refuted a key element of allegations made by two IRS whistleblowers: that Weiss had described to his investigative team last year a pattern of obstruction by the Justice Department.


Sobocinski indeed said he did not recall Weiss telling investigators during the Oct. 7, 2022, meeting in question that he was not ultimately the deciding authority on where and whether to bring charges against Biden.

But the FBI agent admitted that Weiss had to request the cooperation of U.S. attorneys appointed by President Joe Biden to advance his case, and he refused to answer questions about when and how Weiss approached other U.S. attorneys in search of prosecution agreements that never materialized.

“It is my understanding, based upon the U.S. Attorney's Office and prosecutors making that determination, that Delaware was not the appropriate venue,” Sobocinski told the House Judiciary Committee in his interview on Thursday, according to a transcript obtained by the Washington Examiner. “They were actively exploring other locations.”
