Senators Press Delaware Prosecutor on Recusal in Hunter Biden Tax Case

Republican Sens. Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley want the US attorney in Delaware to divulge whether a senior Justice Department official recused himself from the federal tax fraud investigation of Hunter Biden due to his links to the first son’s lawyer.

Nicholas McQuaid, who leads the Justice Department’s criminal division, formerly worked with Hunter Biden’s lawyer Chris Clark at the large multinational law firm Latham & Watkins.

Johnson (R-Wis.) and Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to US Attorney David Weiss, saying that Attorney General Merrick Garland ignored three letters they sent last year regarding McQuaid’s possible recusal from the Weiss-led investigation.

“Dear Mr. Weiss: On Feb. 3, 2021, March 9, 2021, and Nov. 10, 2021, we wrote letters to Attorney General Garland with respect to Nicholas McQuaid…and his conflicts of interest in the Hunter Biden criminal case,” the senators wrote.

“In those letters, we specifically raised concerns about the fact that Mr. McQuaid worked with Hunter Biden’s criminal attorney until he was hired by the Biden administration on Jan. 20, 2021,” Johnson and Grassley wrote.
