    Attorney General William Barr said a probe of President-elect Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is being handled responsibly by the Justice Department and that he sees no reason or plans to appoint a special counsel for the case.

    “To this point I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave,” Barr said at the Justice Department on Monday.

    In a letter to President Donald Trump last week, Barr said he intends to step down Dec. 23. He’ll be replaced in an acting role by Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen.
