Jake Tapper Says Conservatives Have ‘Legitimate Questions’ About Garland’s ‘Odd’ Special Counsel Pick In Biden Probe

CNN’s Jake Tapper reacted to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s decision to appoint David Weiss as Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden. On Friday, Garland tapped Weiss – the U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware – who was already prosecuting Biden over his failure to pay taxes, as well as lying on a federal firearm application. "I think there are some legitimate questions about this whole situation," Tapper said on "CNN News Central." "First of all, I do think it’s fair to question why would U.S. Attorney Weiss be appointed to special counsel. Usually, a special counsel is an outside attorney. Now, it has happened before. Durham came from inside, and the attorney general has the right to do that, but it is odd."
