Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr recently shared his views on the Hunter Biden investigation during an interview on CBS’ “Face The Nation.” While Barr didn’t outright accuse anyone of criminal activity, he expressed concern about potential impropriety and the need for a thorough examination.
Barr emphasized that actions could be deemed shameful without necessarily being illegal. He pointed out the apparent “cashing in” on the office, referring to Hunter Biden’s actions, which he believed warranted scrutiny.
The testimony of IRS whistleblower agents Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler raised concerns for Barr, who questioned the deferral of certain investigative steps before the election. He insisted that after the election, there should be no reason to delay investigative actions.
The decision to appoint a special counsel rested with U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, who assumed office in March 2021. Barr clarified that he had no conflict of interest in the investigation.
Barr defended his own approach, explaining that he refrained from prejudging the situation to ensure an unbiased decision from Garland. He believed that preemptively interfering could have compromised the investigation’s integrity.
While Barr concurred with House Republicans on the need for a special counsel at some point, he didn’t explicitly state whether it was still feasible for Garland to make such an appointment. Time constraints may be a factor, but Barr remained open to understanding the investigation’s progress.
As we await further developments, Barr’s call for a thorough inquiry aligns with the values that define the Republican Party – a commitment to justice, integrity, and accountability. The Department of Justice must conduct a fair and transparent investigation to shed light on Hunter Biden’s actions and uphold the principles of the nation’s justice system.
