Biden Selects Ex-Hunter Colleague to Lead Watchdog Tasked w/ Protecting Whistleblowers

'While Joe Biden tries to convince America that there was zero influence between him and Hunter’s business deals, he appoints a close friend of Hunter to protect the Biden Crime Family from accountability...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) Joe Biden selected his son Hunter Biden’s old legal colleague to helm the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, whose primary purpose is protecting whistleblowers.

Before being nominated by Biden for the post of OSC on Wednesday, Hampton Dellinger worked on the Crisis Management and Government Response team at Boies Schiller Flexner in 2014, the New York Post reported.

In 2014, Biden’s son tapped that firm to assist Burisma Holdings — a Ukrainian energy company. In March of the same year, he also had dinner with Dellinger and others, according to the emails from his abandoned laptop.

The Post reported that Biden’s son served on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019, also adding that it is unclear whether Dellinger did any legal work on Burisma’s behalf.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, RIowa, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and other Republicans urged current Special Counsel Henry Kerner in July to probe claims of retaliation by IRS supervisory agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.

The U.S. Department of Justice was accused by those whistleblowers of meddling and favoritism in the sprawling inquiry of Hunter Biden.

“The president thumbed his nose at SSA Shapley and SA Zeigler with the nomination of his son’s former law partner to an agency overseeing their whistleblower cases,” Shapley’s legal team said.

Additionally, they said that, if he is confirmed, Dellinger should immediately let Congress and the American people know that he will “recuse himself from any involvement in the whistleblowers’ cases who have risked their careers to expose preferential treatment for” Biden’s son and the nominee’s former law partner.

According to the Post, Kerner has served in his role since late October 2017 and heads of the OSC serve five-year terms.

In late 2021, Dellinger was confirmed by the Senate to serve as the DOJ’s assistant attorney general to oversee the Office of Legal Policy.

The White House reported that Delligner worked in that capacity until June 2023.

“While Joe Biden tries to convince America that there was zero influence between him and Hunter’s business deals, he appoints a close friend of Hunter to protect the Biden Crime Family from accountability,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said.

He also added that Dellinger’s appointment — if confirmed by the Senate — would “send a chilling message to civil servants everywhere: you are not protected, and you will continue to be targeted by the Bidens if you look into the real crimes” that were committed by the corrupt family.

“Dellinger should withdraw his nomination,” Gaetz said.
