Jen Psaki, Joe Biden’s election as White House press secretary, said over the weekend that he would not discuss the investigation of his son Hunter with someone he was interviewing to nominate him for attorney general.
“Republicans were very concerned about whether or not President Biden would end his investigation into his son,” said Fox News host Chris Wallace. “A few details here, he promises to let David Weiss, who is the US attorney in Delaware, promise to quit, and what does he think of President Trump possibly hiring a special lawyer to do the job.” Appoints Independent Investigation Of Hunter Biden? “
Biden speaker speaks
“Let me be crystal clear and I appreciate your asking that question,” replied Psaki. “He won’t speak to any attorney general about an investigation into his son. He won’t discuss it with anyone he considers for the role, and he won’t discuss it with the prospective attorney general. “
“It will be up to the future Attorney General and his administration to determine how to deal with an investigation,” she added.
“As you know, US lawyers, this is a personnel decision,” continued Psaki. “We’re still a long way from there at this point, as we haven’t announced a labor or education secretary, we still have a few to go, but we will allow the process to work as it should, for a Justice Department which is run independently by the Attorney General at the top. “

Trump denies any involvement in the investigation
Hunter confirmed earlier this month that he is being investigated for tax fraud. On Friday, President Donald Trump spoke out to deny that he had anything to do with the probe.
“I have NOTHING to do with the possible persecution of Hunter Biden or the Biden family,” Trump tweeted. “It’s just fake news. Actually I find it very sad to see! “
