Attorney General Responds to Requests for Special Counsel to Investigate Hunter Biden

The United States Department of Justice, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Attorney General William Barr is rejecting House Republican’s request to appoint a special counsel to investigate the President-elect’s son, Hunter Biden. Once Biden revealed his “tax affairs” are currently being investigated calls for AG Barr to appoint a special counsel to take over the investigation began to ensure the investigation continues through the incoming Biden administration. Despite the pressure, Barr has revealed he has no plans to appoint the requested special counsel. [Keep reading: What AG Barr Must Do to Protect Hunter Biden Probe]

Fox News reports:

“I think to the extent that there’s an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally,” Barr said Monday about the investigation into Hunter Biden. “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.”

“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,” Barr said Monday during a press conference.

Hunter Biden revealed his “tax affairs” are under federal investigation.

A well-placed government source told Fox News that Hunter Biden has been a subject/target of the grand jury investigation. According to the source, a “target” means that there is a “high probability that person committed a crime,” while a “subject” is someone you “don’t know for sure” has committed a crime.

The source also told Fox News that this investigation was predicated, in part, by Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) regarding suspicious foreign transactions.

William Barr will be leaving the Department of Justice on December 23.

I once posted that he would do much of nothing. To date I was shown right in that assessment. Not one person has even been indited over spying on Trumps campaign. We still have no answers and will never get any now. Hillery is still walking around free, Obummer is as well. Funny how I was attracted for my words, yet now stand affirmed.

Don’t you get it, ALL OF GLOBALIST ELITE are nothing more then wealthy criminals with wealth, influence and power that they use all three to protect themselves. These are truly disgust human filth. You seriously need to read this investigative piece from a “real” journalist, trying to put the puzzle pieces together. This article infuriated me, and I went ballistic. Still confident in the Supreme Court?

A special counsel was apparently need for Trump but…..not for Biden and his crooked son. Something is very wrong with this picture. There was no viable evidence on Trump but there is tons of evidence on Joe, Hunter and Jim Biden and their corruption with China.

Why not have Barr’s replacement order a special Council before Jan 6? He can order this before Biden or Trump takes over as President . We know Biden had a Prosecutor fired who dared to investigate his son. So itb stands to reason anyone reporting to him will be on his team.

Can’t help wondering if Barr might have just received a really big bonus check from Soros. (or maybe a really big threat from Hillary). I guess he can now join Sessions over there, hiding under his bed, with his tail between his legs. He’s definitely showing what side of the fence he’s on now.

The tax question is but a small part of what was confirmed on Hunter B’s computer. Although a tax investigation may lead to uncovering other illegal and /or traitorous crimes involving his father, uncle, sister and many others as listed as “contacts” including Harris. Also is email to his father indicts his father and sister as involvement in his admitted pedophilia for which they all deserve jail time.

Now it is in the law there has to be some semblance of a law being broken, before a law enforcement agency can open any in investigation into anyone, that law prevents someone who does not like you having you investigated, and that applies to all of the people in this USA, any investigation originated must have the approval of a judge based on evidence, not accusations, and so far that is all there is, and if Barr refuses to grant Trump’s wish he must have good grounds.
