Baselines are always important when reviewing information; I cannot stress this enough. When the corrupt instititional officials within the DOJ and FBI need to justify their corrupt activity, or get out in front of any exposure of their corrupt activity, they consistently run to two media outlets, The New York Times and Politico. [State Dept use CNN, Intelligence Community use Washington Post] This is the one constant you will notice in all reporting.
That is the baseline for Politico writing today about U.S. Attorney David Weiss intentionally burying information about an investigation of Hunter Biden in the summer and fall of 2020 in order to protect the candidacy of Joe Biden. USAO Weiss of Delaware stopped the investigation of Hunter Biden, stopped issuing grand jury subpoenas, and stopped the issuance of search warrants in order to keep the public from knowing that Hunter Biden was under a criminal investigation.

Contrast that -now confirmed- defensive activity, with these exact same DOJ and FBI officials leaking everything they could about investigations of Donald Trump, or anyone in Trump's orbit, even when those investigative statements were false, in order to undermine his candidacy and presidency.
This glaring contrast is one of the most brutally obvious examples of political manipulation within the DOJ as an institution. Two solid and confirmed tiers of justice.
POLITICO (with the DOJ spin) - Last summer, federal officials in Delaware investigating Hunter Biden faced a dilemma. The probe had reached a point where prosecutors could have sought search warrants and issued a flurry of grand jury subpoenas. Some officials involved in the case wanted to do just that. Others urged caution. They advised Delaware's U.S. Attorney, David Weiss, to avoid taking any actions that could alert the public to the existence of the case in the middle of a presidential election.
"To his credit, he listened," said a person involved in the discussions, reported here for the first time. Weiss decided to wait, averting the possibility that the investigation would become a months-long campaign issue.
Since taking office, President Joe Biden has left Weiss - a Republican appointed by Donald Trump on the recommendation of Delaware's two Democratic senators - in place. That puts him in one of the most sensitive positions in the Justice Department, deciding how to proceed with an investigation of the president's son that has proven politically fraught on several fronts.

Of course there is no reason for Joe Biden to remove USAO Weiss... by his action and inaction, Mr. Weiss has shown his intention to protect the installed occupant of the White House from any corrupt investigative scrutiny. Additionally, David Weiss now holds a get-out-of-jail leverage card against any action by the DC machine. This is the way of the swamp.
However, and I share this with full intent and seriousness, these examples of corruption within the DOJ and FBI that continue piling up upon each-other will not end well for these institutions. You cannot have the American people see this many examples of ‘two-tiered justice' and simultaneously expect the American people to have any confidence in the rule of law.
This is not going to end well. I'm not sure exactly how this is going to end, but I am certain that a bulging and tenuous powder-keg of unstable nitroglycerine exists in the minds of the overwhelming majority of Americans.
When the justice system of a nation is subverted for one-sided political benefit by a small group of institutional elites, and it happens so openly and brazenly while the participants act with such incredible hubris, there will -eventually- be a response in direct proportion to the severity of the corruption.
The administration efforts to have the allied communication platforms control information is a sign of desperation and fear. The regime knows that something very bad is possible because the scale of their corruption is too vast to continue hiding. The evidence is leaking out everywhere. They are exposed, naked and vulnerable. Their grip on the control aspect is tenuous at best.
History tells us there will eventually be a reckoning of biblical proportions; and it will be very, very uncomfortable for everyone. ( bolding added )
