When asked on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday whether he would encourage the Department of Justice to act in investigating alleged corruption in the Biden family, President Donald Trump said Attorney General William Barr must act and fast to appoint a special prosecutor to do the job.

Trump echoed the sentiment of eleven Republican lawmakers who sent a letter Monday asking Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate the alleged corruption.

“We’ve got to get the Attorney General to act fast,” Trump said. “He’s got to appoint somebody. This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election and by the way, we’re doing very well. We’re gonna win the election.”

Last week, The New York Post published two reports alleging that former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden used his father’s position in the Obama administration to cash in big from firms in Ukraine and China.

And on Tuesday, Trump teased that more information could be coming out about Hunter Biden.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
