Although many in the mainstream media downplayed pre-election allegations against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who was involved in dubious international business transactions.
Now that the subject is being revisited in the wake of Hunter Biden’s admission that he is under federal investigation, President Donald Trump is reportedly thinking about calling for a special prosecutor to dig up all the details, as reported by the Washington Examiner.
Trump explores his options
The president has already reportedly contacted a number of top staffers and advisers concerning the matter — including White House lawyer Pat Cipollone and chief of staff Mark Meadows.
Given U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s recently announced resignation, incoming acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen could potentially appoint a special prosecutor to the case.
In any case, Trump seems intent on getting to the bottom of Hunter Biden’s alleged wrongdoing.
He has also reportedly sought the advice of his personal attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, to determine whether he has the power to unilaterally appoint a prosecutor.
For his part, Hunter Biden recently acknowledged that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware had launched an investigation into his “tax affairs.”
“The American taxpayer deserves nothing less”
Whether that characterization is accurate or not, Fox News reported that he is either the target or subject of a grand jury investigation, though additional details were not immediately available.
Furthermore, a number of foreign transactions involving Hunter Biden have raised red flags and sparked multiple “suspicious activity reports” as part of the investigation.
Not only did the younger Biden speak out in his own defense, affirming that he is taking the matter “very seriously,” his father has maintained public support.
Asked recently for his reaction to the news involving his Hunter Biden, the former vice president declared: “I’m proud of my son.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), however, wants to hear more, as he explained from the Senate floor this week: “Based on all the facts known to date, Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do. I learned a lesson long ago when I first started my oversight focus and that is: No matter how difficult the media or the other side of the aisle makes it to find the facts – never give up, keep working hard. The American taxpayer deserves nothing less.”
