Bill Barr Suggests a Special Counsel is Necessary Regarding Hunter Biden
Of all of the concerns that the nation had about Joe Biden during the 2020 election, perhaps none was quite as troublesome as his family’s wide scope of international business deals. After all, having a President who’s somehow beholden to foreign interests is a fairly obvious national security threat.
But the Biden family has been at this a long time, and Americans have been keen to it. They see Hunter Biden, son of the President, executing large international business deals and receiving cushy corporate gigs in places like Ukraine, all without any discernible experience.
Americans, by and large, fear that nepotism has come to roost in the White House.

This is why one of the nation’s former top cops thinks it’s time to begin investigating the situation.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr said on Thursday that President Joe Biden’s top law enforcement officer should appoint a special counsel in the Hunter Biden investigation, following revelations by whistleblowers within the FBI that top brass were working to discredit allegations against the first son.

Trump-appointed U.S. prosecutor David Weiss is investigating Hunter and associates for tax violations and lying to law enforcement about illegally purchasing a firearm, CNN reported. Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division, Matthew Olsen, on Thursday confirmed to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) in a congressional hearing the agency is investigating Hunter Biden.
The case has been largely under wraps until Monday, when Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) revealed “highly credible” allegations of efforts within the FBI and the Justice Department to downplay or dismiss negative information about Hunter Biden.
Bill Barr believes the credible allegations are enough for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel.
Barr was dead serious, too.
“ ntervening events, especially recent reports about FBI whistleblowers and the possible reach of the investigation, warrant adding the protections of special counsel status to assure that key decisions are made independently without political ‘favor,’” Barr told the Federalist.
Garland hasn’t yet suggested that a special counsel could be forthcoming, but, for whatever it’s worth, has suggested that he won’t interfere with the current probe.
