Attorney General Bill Barr has gone full anti-President Donald Trump in the weeks since the election and the two are not on friendly terms.

But some of his work that has caused the president to be furious with Barr started before the election took place.

Reports say that Barr knew about the investigation into Hunter Biden and actively worked behind the scenes to stop Americans from knowing the investigation was taking place, The Daily Mail reported.

Bill Barr has known about investigations involving Joe Biden’s son Hunter since at least the spring, according to a report, and did his best to stop the information leaking out before the election.

In news which angered his boss Donald Trump, the attorney general – whose job is already said to be hanging in the balance – acted to stop the investigation being made public, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Justice Department guidelines advise investigators against taking overt actions in a run-up to an election so as not to be seen as affecting the outcome.
