Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) suggested that President Joe Biden's administration inappropriately appointed an attorney to temporarily head the Department of Justice's criminal division, and he was served up a slew of reminders about the recently departed administration's appointees.

The newly elected president's younger son Hunter Biden hired former federal prosecutor Chris Clark to assist in his possible criminal defense in December, and his father nominated Nicholas McQuaid, one of Clark's partners at the law firm Latham & Watkins, to serve as principal deputy assistant attorney general in the criminal division.

There's no indication that McQuaid, also a former federal prosecutor, did any work on the Hunter Biden investigation for possible tax and money laundering activities, but he did jointly represent at least one Latham client with Clark before started at the Department of Justice.

Cornyn, like Fox News host Tucker Carlson, suggested an improper relationship between the Biden family and McQuaid -- but other social media users pointed out his hypocrisy.
