The report comes on the heels Trump announced Monday that outgoing Attorney General Bill Barr Leaving the judiciary before Christmas. In the absence of Bar, Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen will act as Attorney General.
Trump was dissatisfied with the bar for not making a public announcement Federal Inquiry into Hunter Biden’s Tax, According to the AP report. The president was also dissatisfied with the bar, claiming it was the judiciary and the FBI Evidence of widespread voter fraud is not available, Contrary to Trump’s election-related conspiracy theories.
Rosen said he was “honored to fulfill his role as the country’s top guard” and “will continue to focus on implementing the department’s key priorities.”
As Trump enters his final weeks, it is questionable whether the Acting Attorney General will submit to the president’s pressure to investigate his political opponents. The president was quoted in the AP statement as saying, “The president has asked his panel of lawyers, including personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, to examine whether the president has the authority to appoint a special adviser.”
If the judiciary is to take over the investigation under the Trump administration, it will be a “longer and more complex investigation” than the current Hunter Biden tax investigation, the AB said.
The trial is likely to extend Joe Biden’s term to Jan. 20, which could put the incumbent on responsibility for keeping Rosan or appointing another attorney general. The AP says the attorney general has the power to suspend special advisory hearings – but only “for specific reasons, such as abuse, dereliction of duty or conflict of interest.”
