Barr said, “That there is an investigation. I think it will be handled responsibly and professionally. Currently, within the department and until now, I have seen no reason to appoint a specific attorney and I have no plans to do so before I leave. “
Barr also said he saw no reason to appoint a special lawyer to investigate election fraud.
Trump-appointed US attorney in Delaware is already investigating Hunter Biden’s tax returns.
The reason Barr is down as attorney general is because he refused to follow Trump’s conspiracies over election fraud.
The law urges a special lawyer to investigate Hunter Biden for planting the false seeds of the scandal in the Biden administration. President-elect Biden told Stephen Colbert he knew Republicans were using his son to get to him.
Republicans have tried to smear Hunter Biden for years, and Barr’s refusal to appoint a special lawyer is yet another sign that there is nothing there.
