Justice Department Declines Special Probe into Biden Family

AG William Barr said Department previously reviewed allegations.

At what was likely his final press conference as attorney general, William Barr addressed the request for the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to look into Hunter Biden’s potential tax issues. Though certain members of Congress had hoped to advance the current investigation to a higher level, Barr stated that there was no need.

“I think it’s being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the department, and to this point I have seen no reason to appoint a special counsel, and I have no plan to do so before I leave,” said Barr. “If I thought a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate, I would name one, but I haven’t and I’m not going to.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For William Barr as he steps down from his position as U.S. Attorney General.
  • That the Justice Department would uphold the law without partisan interests.
  • For the Lord to lead this investigation to reveal the truth.
