Trump asks about special counsel for Hunter Biden tax investigation


Source: USA Today/AP

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is considering pushing to have a special counsel appointed to advance a federal tax investigation into Hunter Biden, son of President-elect Joe Biden, setting up a potential showdown with incoming acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen.

Trump — angry that out-going Attorney General William Barr didn’t publicly announce the ongoing, two-year investigation into Hunter Biden — has consulted on the matter with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, White House counsel Pat Cipollone and outside allies.

That’s according to several Trump administration officials and Republicans close to the White House who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity to discuss private matters.

Beyond appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the younger Biden, the sources said Trump is interested in having another special counsel appointed to look into his own baseless claims of election fraud. But if he’s expecting his newly named acting attorney general to go further than Barr on either matter, he could end up quickly disappointed.

Before the election the leftists were telling us that all the talk about the good-for-nothing junkie bagman to the Big Guy, Hunter Biden, was just Russian disinformation.  Now, all of a sudden, stories are popping up about how he has been under investigation--for taxes, they tell us.  What a crock of shit.

It's got to be something a whole lot worse than just tax problems.  They want to make the Hunter problem go away before we find out what it's really all about.  Any talk about Biden tax problems is just a feint to distract us from all the really evil shit that that crime family has been getting away with.

If the tax investigation were "just" being conducted by the IRS, Biden would quietly shut it down. If it's being conducted by a special counsel, shutting it down would be more complicated, and public.

Tax investigation should take a backseat to the pedophile charges.

 It appears that both the "Big guy" and his son have a penchant for tweaking little girls nipples. :mad:

Typical liberal "reporting".  Poorly phrased and always anonymous sources.  In other words, some guy or gal at a bar/gym/Starbucks told me something I wanted to hear.

My guess is that Hunter's "tax problems" have to do with him not reporting and/or dodging tax on funds from foreign entities for political reasons.

But what if some of that money was funneled to Quid Pro Joe and he dodged the IRS too?
