Attorney General William Barr said on Monday that he sees no reason to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden.
"To this point I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave," Barr said Monday morning.
Multiple Republicans have expressed interest in appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden's business dealings in China and Ukraine after it was revealed that the he is under investigation by a District Attorney's Offices in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
A special counsel would allow the investigation more independence from the executive branch when President-Elect Joe Biden takes office in January.
This is a developing story.
