WSJ: AG Barr 'Worked to Avoid...Public Disclosure' of Hunter Biden Investigation During Election, Knew 'Since at Least this Spring'

Somebody’s got some explaining to do.

As the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on Thursday, “a person familiar with the matter” has disclosed that U.S. Attorney General William Barr knew about “investigations involving Hunter Biden’s business and financial dealings since at least this spring,” saying that Barr “worked” to suppress the information from the public during the weeks and months heading into the 2020 election.

According to the WSJ:

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, [Democratic presidential nominee] 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.

A Media Research Center (MRC) poll released on November 24 stated that 9.4 percent of Biden voters surveyed wouldn’t have voted for the Democrat if they had “full awareness of the Hunter Biden scandal.”

CNN claims that a "person with knowledge of the [Hunter Biden] probe" said the Justice Department suppressed the investigation because of "guidelines" that prevent them from providing information that could affect an election.

That makes absolutely no sense. So hypothetically, if the DOJ was investigating a murder charge for a presidential candidate, they wouldn't tell anyone that said candidate might have committed murder because they don't want to affect an election? That's stupid. The people have a right to know, because they pay for the Justice Department to exist in the first place. Wouldn't you want to know before making a big decision, like who to vote for in an election? If you don't care about the information, fine. If you do care, fine. But that should be up to the people, not an unelected government department.

Stories like this make people wonder what else people in the radical media or establishment government figures hid from them in the lead up to the election. If it turns out that the WSJ’s source is accurate on their information concerning the Attorney General of the United States, who are you supposed to trust as an American citizen?

These people are supposed to be looking out for the American public, not keeping information that the taxpayers pay for from them.
