Attorney General Bill Barr, just days away from leaving office after his resignation, has delivered one last dagger to the heart of President Donald Trump.
In a major announcement on Monday the outgoing attorney general said that he would not appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden, son of President-elect Joe Biden.
“I think to the extent that there’s an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the department and 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,” he said.
A reporter asked the obvious question, with no special counsel if he frightened that the Biden administration would end the probe in Hunter Biden.
“I’m hoping that the next administration handles that matter responsibly,” he said.
Yeah, sure, the next president is going to investigate his own son.
Barr announced his resignation last week amidst bad blood between him and the president, though his resignation letter made it appear as though none existed.
