AG Barr: No reason to name special counsels to investigate Hunter Biden or election fraud

Departing Attorney General William Barr continued to distance himself from President Donald Trump, saying Monday that he saw no reason to appoint special counsels to investigate Hunter Biden or unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud.

Barr, who is set to leave office Wednesday, also broke with Trump by publicly blaming Russia for a massive cyber attack that has affected more than a half-dozen government agencies and an untold number of private companies, even as the president pointed the finger at China over the weekend and sought to downplay the breach.

“From the information I have, I agree with Secretary Pompeo’s assessment,” Barr said, referring to State Department chief Mike Pompeo. “It certainly appears to be the Russians, but I’m not going to discuss it beyond that.”
