Discussions “Ongoing” About Appointing Special Counsel for Hunter Biden Probe

According to a Department of Justice source who spoke to Fox News this week, talks are currently being had about whether or not to appoint a special prosecutor to take over the agency’s probe of Hunter Biden. While Attorney General William Barr said earlier in the week that he did not think it necessary to take such a step, top officials are in disagreement, concerned that Joe Biden’s presence as president – even if he doesn’t interfere with the criminal investigation directly – will have a corrosive impact on the search for truth.

In a statement in early December, Hunter Biden acknowledged that he is under federal investigation for a situation involving his taxes, but it has since come out that prosecutors are also looking into his overseas business dealings, particularly as they relate to China. The DOJ source told Fox News that the subject of a special counsel is an “open discussion” and that those talks are “ongoing.” Another source said that many of the highest-level officials at the department believe that the special counsel statute was expressly made just for scenarios like this one.

“It was passed to deal with a potential conflict of interest of the attorney general or the president of the United States,” the source said. “A president-elect coming in, where his appointed attorneys will be investigating his son? That’s textbook conflict.”

Barr, who resigned this week, appeared to disagree with that assessment in a news conference on Tuesday. Asked by reporters if he saw the need to appoint a special prosecutor to take over the Hunter Biden probe, Barr said no.

“To the extent that there is an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the department, and, to this point, I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel, and I have no plan to do so before I leave,” he said.

In a press conference of his own this week, Joe Biden bristled at the idea that he might reconsider his past statements about news reports about his son were nothing more than “Russian disinformation.” Asked by a Fox News reporter if he still felt that way in light of the criminal investigation, Biden said, “Yes! Yes! Yes! God love you, man. You’re a one horse-pony.”

Since the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s affairs largely matches up to the now-revealed investigation, one has to think that the President-elect also believes that investigation to be the result of “Russian disinformation.” If that doesn’t call for the appointment of a special counsel, we’re not sure what would.

  1. How come all this information wasn’t part of the national news, before the election? I asked someone who voted for Biden if they had heard about his sons business dealings. Their answer was no. So if its not part of national news, and being withheld from the voting public. What does that say about freedom of the press and free speech? Was one or two of our constitutional rights ignored. And, if ignored, why?

  2. Never going to happen. Barr was bought months ago, probably the day he took office. What else would explain his lackluster job performance? Biden and the Democrats are just not going to allow his son’s crimes (many of which are also connected to the father) to get in the way of their socialist plans.

    My fellow Americans, just watch closely. When they start their gun grab, you’ll know that your wealth is next on their list of confiscations.

  3. If Biden were a Republican, with these charges, the Dems,
    would scream so loud and long, he and his whole family would have to Leave this Nation

  4. Nothing is going to happen to Hunter, evidence is being destroyed, cover stories concocted, people paid off, or threatened by the FBI, IRS.

    Business as usual for Obama & company. They don’t give a damn about any Biden legacy but they are not going to let a Hunter problem interrupt their timeline with China.

  5. With “free speech” you are also allowed NOT TO SPEAK at all. That is what the Main Stream Media chose to do—NOT REPORT THE FACTS.

  6. ❤💥👍CHRISTrumPence and all his/our honorable US TRUMPlican Lawmakers successfully US 2020/2021 Elected/Reelected Landslides
    Amen & Amen👍💥❤

  7. A special council made up of corrupt FBI and DOJ. They will milk the tax payer for about a year, playing detective work, get paid millions and final result. No evidence of money laundering found, case close. Mock my words.
