Sources: DOJ officials in "ongoing discussions" about Hunter Biden special counsel

“It is an ongoing discussion,” the source told Fox News. “No decisions have been made either way.”

Another source told Fox News that some high level DOJ officials believe a special counsel is “warranted,” and cited the special counsel statute.

“It was passed to deal with a potential conflict of interest of the attorney general or the president of the United States,” the source told Fox News. “A president-elect coming in, where his appointed attorneys will be investigating his son? That’s textbook conflict.”
