President Joe Biden has announced his nomination of a former colleague of his son to a prosecutorial position.
President Biden said Oct. 3 he was tapping Hampton Dellinger to head the Office of Special Counsel, which has investigative and prosecutorial powers.
Mr. Dellinger worked in the U.S. Department of Justice until June, where he “played a key coordinating role in the department’s implementation of the president’s Executive Order on Advancing Effective, Accountable Policing and Criminal Justice Practices as well as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act,” the White House said. “In addition, Dellinger worked to enhance the reliability of forensic science in investigations and prosecutions.”
“The first word that comes to mind is ‘brazen.’ In the current climate where many Americans are concerned about the politicization of the government, law enforcement, and justice, this move looks to be a pretty firm thumb in the eye of the American public,” Michael Chamberlain, director of the watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust, told The Epoch Times via email.
