In a compelling Wall Street Journal op-ed published on Thursday, IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to “appoint a special counsel” to ensure an unbiased and transparent investigation into the Hunter Biden case. Ziegler, previously identified as “Whistleblower X,” first revealed his identity during his testimony in front of the House Oversight committee, where he raised concerns about preferential treatment in the investigation.

Ziegler emphasized that justice officials hindered investigators from pursuing the evidence diligently, warranting the appointment of a special counsel to uphold the integrity of the investigation. He expressed hope that transparency and equal treatment under the law for all U.S. taxpayers would be restored through this action.

In the op-ed, Ziegler criticized the notion of “sweetheart deals” being granted to the rich, powerful, and politically connected, highlighting the need for impartiality in the investigation process.

The whistleblower shared his motivation for coming forward, stating that he witnessed irregularities during the investigation that were beyond the norm, which fueled his desire for transparency and accountability.

While Ziegler’s testimony has been challenged by some Democrats, including Jamie Raskin, D-Md., and the White House, he remained steadfast in his belief that Hunter Biden should have faced more severe charges and that the investigation had deviated from normal investigative procedures, according to reports from Fox News.

Ziegler disclosed his disagreement with prosecutors in the past but stressed that the Hunter Biden case was the first instance where he felt “handcuffed” by the Justice Department. He characterized their behavior as obstruction, further emphasizing the need for an independent special counsel.

Despite denials from the Justice Department regarding any undue influence, the call for a special counsel persists. The investigation into Hunter Biden remains ongoing, with U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware leading the probe. The ongoing scrutiny surrounding the case continues to spark debates about the pursuit of justice and the principles of transparency in government affairs.

CNN announces controversial presidential debate rules obviously intended to benefit Biden

CNN announced its several presidential debate rules over the weekend sparking controversy. The rules will govern the upcoming debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden on June 27. A

After Trump publicly stated he would debate the president “any time and any where” the Biden campaign agreed to a total of two debates that would be closely regulated. Not only did the administration demand a ban on audiences, it also approved CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash as its moderators. Breitbart reports Tapper is one of Trump’s sharpest critics.

CNN announced its own additional parameters on Saturday, which likely were done in partnership with the White House:

  • Two commercial breaks (Likely to benefit Biden)
  • Campaign staff will not be able to interact with their candidate during the break
  • No opening statements, two-minute closing statements
  • Two-minute answer shot clock, one minute for rebuttals
  • Mics will be muted “except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak” (Likely to benefit Biden)

CNN reported its rules:

The 90-minute debate will include two commercial breaks, according to the network, and campaign staff may not interact with their candidate during that time. Both candidates agreed to appear at a uniform podium, and their podium positions will be determined by a coin flip.

Microphones will be muted throughout the debate except for the candidate whose turn it is to speak. While no props or pre-written notes will be allowed on the stage, candidates will be given a pen, a pad of paper and a bottle of water.

Some aspects of the debate – including the absence of a studio audience – will be a departure from previous debates. But, as in the past, the moderators “will use all tools at their disposal to enforce timing and ensure a civilized discussion,” according to the network.

Breitbart reports that the President is planning to spend about a week preparing to debate Trump who has also requested Biden receive a drug test before the debates. The White House did not respond in May as to whether Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates.

Ron Klain, Biden’s former chief of staff who is going on vacation to help Biden prepare for the debates, did not respond to Politico Playbook’s request for comment about “whether any illegal substances are used as part of Klain’s debate prep.”
