AG Barr says he sees no reason to name special counsels to investigate Hunter Biden or election fraud
Attorney General William Barr resigns and will leave the Trump administration before Christmas
Attorney General William Barr said Monday he saw no reason to appoint special advisers to investigate Hunter Biden or unfounded allegations of election fraud.
Barr, who is stepping down on Wednesday, said he had no intention of making such appointments despite President Donald Trump weighing such measures.
The attorney general also said there was "no basis" for seizing voting machines to investigate unsubstantiated allegations of fraud.
In the Hunter Biden case, Barr said that the tax investigation, involving President-elect Joe Biden's son, was being "handled responsibly and professionally" by the Delaware federal prosecutor's office.
