Hunter Biden, President-elect Joe Biden’s son, is currently under investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware for his tax affairs.
The Biden’s deny any wrongdoing.
A number of bombshell reports suggest Hunter Biden’s business dealings overseas in countries like Ukraine may have gone unreported in his income reports.
“To the extent that there’s an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally within the department,” Barr said during a press conference on Monday.
Barr added, “And to this point I have no seen reason to appoint a special counsel, and I see no reason to do so before I leave. If I thought a special counsel was the right tool, I would name one, but I haven’t.”
Barr’s resignation from the Department of Justice is effective in two days. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that Barr was aware of a federal probe into Hunter Biden before the election.
President Donald Trump who has been at odds with Barr, criticized the DOJ for failing to report “the Biden matter BEFOTE the Election,” adding, “Oh well, it’s OK, we won the Election anyway – 75,000,000 VOTES!!!”

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts
After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.
Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”
National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”
Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.
National Review reports:
“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.
He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
