Jonathan Turley: Time for Special Counsel to Probe Hunter Biden Scandal

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley of George Washington University on Thursday wrote in an opinion piece that ”there are legitimate questions” for the Biden administration about appointing a special counsel to investigate allegations against Hunter Biden.

Turley wrote that recent reports about emails that allegedly link President Joe Biden to Hunter Biden’s bank account ”is the latest contraction of President Biden’s repeated claims that he was unaware and uninvolved in past dealings by his son.” 

He added, ”Given these links, there are legitimate questions of why the Justice Department has not sought a special counsel in the ongoing investigation of alleged money-laundering and tax violations linked to the president’s son. More importantly, even if there are no criminal charges, there is now a compelling need for an independent report on the alleged influence peddling operation by Hunter, his uncle James Biden, and potentially his father, President Biden.”
