Texas Messes With Battleground States

A Shot In The Arm

Hunter Biden Under Investigation

  • Hunter Biden announced on Wednesday that federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating his tax affairs.
  • According to CNN, the probe began in 2018, before current Attorney General Bill Barr’s tenure.
  • “I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said in a statement.
  • The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday that Barr had known about the probe since the spring, and had worked to keep it out of public view during the contentious campaign season.
  • That sure irked Trump, who complained on Twitter about being kept in the dark on the probe: “Why didn’t the Fake News Media, the FBI and the DOJ report the Biden matter BEFORE the Election,” Trump wrote in a Thursday night tweet.”
