The Attorney General of the United States appears to have taken the active step to assist the Joe Biden presidential campaign by hiding details of an investigation into his family from the American public.
The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday night:
Attorney General William Barr has known about a disparate set of investigations involving Hunter Biden’s business and financial dealings since at least this spring, a person familiar with the matter said, and worked to avoid their public disclosure during the heated election campaign.
Republicans and President Trump have pressed Mr. Barr for months to pursue Mr. Biden, especially as his father, Joe Biden, gained momentum in his ultimately successful bid for president. Mr. Barr has staved off pressure from Republicans in Congress for information into the investigations, the person said, without elaborating on his actions.
National Pulse editor Raheem Kassam reported on November 5th that Barr refused to discuss the matter when approached by public figures:
.@Harlan bumped into him lounging at the Trump Hotel last week and asked him what action he was taking over the hard drive from hell.
Barr just pretended not to see or hear him. Which was weird coz they were one on one. https://t.co/1DRqU4pv2j

The WSJ report continues:
One investigation became public this week after federal investigators served a subpoena on Hunter Biden. The subpoena sought detailed financial information in connection with a criminal tax investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware, according to people familiar with the matter.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan had also been looking at Hunter Biden’s business and financial dealings, as part of a broader criminal investigation that two people familiar with the matter described as an international financial investigation that had been going on for at least a year. Hunter Biden is implicated in that investigation but was never a specific target for criminal prosecution, the people said. They declined to provide details on the substance of the probe.
The federal scrutiny dates back to 2018, the people familiar with the matter said.
The National Pulse reported at length on the so-called “Hard Drive from Hell” – gaining exclusive access to the device. The stories remain available at www.BidenLeak.com.
The Biden family is under broad investigation, including rumored investigations into whether or not the family has been compromised by the Chinese Communist Party as well as Joe’s brother Jim’s involvement in a number of business deals.
Meanwhile, House Republicans are calling on Barr to instruct a Special Counsel to investigate election irregularities. It remains unlikely that AG Barr would appoint a special counsel who may find against the AG himself.
The Barr-Biden friendship goes back decades, with Joe Biden stating in 1995:
“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general… You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”
Just 51 percent of Americans feel the election was fairly conducted, a number sure to sink given the revelations about Barr using the U.S. Justice Department as a cover-up department for the Biden campaign.
