The special counsel prosecuting Hunter Biden in Delaware has asked a judge to deny an “improper” attempt by President Joe Biden’s son to prove vindictive or selective prosecution by subpoenaing former President Donald Trump and former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr.

Special counsel David Weiss on Monday told U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika that Hunter Biden’s “motion is meritless and should be denied” for several reasons, including for being an impermissible “fishing expedition.”

In mid-November, Hunter Biden cited an excerpt from Bill Barr’s book “One Damn Thing After Another” in an effort to bolster the claim there was “more than a mere appearance” that Trump “improperly and unrelentingly pressured DOJ to pursue an investigation and prosecution […] to advance […] partisan ambitions.”
