What’s funny is that many of the Republicans now claiming this is some attempt at a coverup (wut) were the same people who demanded a special counsel a few months back.This appointment just shows what a grifting, lying hypocritical shitshow the Republican party has become...
Interestingly, the MAGA wing of the House of Representatives as characterized by Jim Jordan, et. al, are not pleased with this news. It is nearly all I need to know about this appointment.
Already there is an outcry that a special counsel must be appointed from outside the DOJ. Even though there was no fucking outcry from them when John Durham was appointed from inside the DOJ by Bill Barr.
Most people for the rule of law were mostly happy when a special prosecutor was appointed to investigate Trump. Republicans seem to be upset that a special prosecutor has been named to investigate Hunter Biden.
Republicans want to get some dirt, any dirt, on Joe Biden, but their rejection of any and all sources of authority (government, courts, journalists, etc.) means they don’t have any forum in which to demonstrate (lie about) his guilt. They know Joe did something wrong, and they seem mad that we don’t all just take their fucking word for it. They’re surely bothered by the likelihood of a genuine investigation coming up with the "particular results they are not looking for.
They are not serious people. This is, as always, an exercise where they pretend to be serious and the media inexplicably pretends to believe them.
