How should Biden’s good-for-nothing son, Hunter, be treated by the government for his misdeeds and sketchy, “bagman”-like activities? According to former special counsel Ken Starr, the man who investigated the Clintons, it’s time to appoint a special counsel to investigate what Hunter was up to.
That comment came while Starr was appearing on The Evening Edit, a show on Fox Business Network. He discussed Hunter Biden’s situation on that show, specifically the independence of the US attorney involved called:
“There is a grand jury investigation and the Justice Department is restricted by law. You cannot disclose specific information pending before a grand jury. So that’s a real problem with “notifying members of Congress what’s going on in an ongoing and ongoing investigation,” but it begs the question, well, who is in charge of this investigation?
That’s a different topic, but that’s the topic that I think is screaming. As we receive this information, which at least potentially involves the President, family members, etc., a serious question arises as to how the investigation under the auspices of the Department of Justice is being conducted.”
Continuing this train of thought, explaining why AG Garland’s authority on the matter might cause problems, he said:
“Is there independence and the appearance of independence? No one need question the integrity of the US Attorney in Delaware conducting the investigation. I certainly don’t. He’s a very respected person, but the problem is that he’s part of the Justice Department. That means he’s part of the executive branch. That means he reports to Merrick Garland. And who does Merrick Garland report to? The President of the United States.”
This isn’t the first time Starr has suggested that special counsel might be needed. He did so about a week ago, and made roughly the same point in The Ingraham Angle as in the Evening Edit: The point was that the Justice Department is not independent enough to conduct such a sensitive investigation, so a Special Counsel is needed.
Answering Peter Doocy’s question on the subject, Jen Psaki said:
“Well, first of all, the President has never had a conversation with the Justice Department about an investigation into a member of his family. He said that during the election campaign and will continue to do so. So I would refer you to the Department of Justice for further steps they would take. You would make these decisions independently.”
She also defended the DOJ’s independence in her back-and-forth with Doocy, saying, “Ron Klain also said the Justice Department is independent and will make its own decisions.”
So while a special attorney might be required, for now, Team Biden has shown little inclination to go along with such an idea.
