Yesterday Joe Biden said that accusations about his son Hunter are “foul play” designed to get to him. Ed Morrissey says that the context of the statement shows Biden was talking about political attacks and not the federal investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes. But Biden’s clearly expressed and very normal love for his son will create a complication when Biden takes office on January 20. It is better for the country, for the Department of Justice, and for Joe Biden if that investigation is protected from even the appearance of interference by Biden.
The way to do that is a special counsel, and either Trump’s AG of the week or Biden’s AG should appoint one promptly.
