(ConservativePeak.com)- President Donald Trump called on Attorney General William Barr to “act fast” in investigating Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden after new evidence was released last week suggesting he was involved in a scheme to leverage his influence as vice president into cash.
A New York Post bombshell report published last week showed emails retrieved from a laptop understood to have been abandoned by Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, at a computer store in Delaware. The legally-obtained emails showed Hunter Biden communicating with an executive from Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company that he was employed by, and discussing a meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
President Donald Trump said during a Fox and Friends interview that Attorney General Barr needs to act.
“He’s gotta act,” he said. “And he’s gotta act fast. He’s gotta appoint somebody.”

President Donald Trump reacted to a letter that was sent by House Republicans on Monday to Attorney General Barr, urging him to appoint a special counsel to investigate the former vice president and his family.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter reads.
The Biden campaign has denied the reporting but has not denied the authenticity of the emails discovered on the laptop abandoned at a Delaware computer repair store.
“Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as ‘not legitimate’ and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing,” the campaign claimed.
Well, let’s see what the investigations say…because the Hunter Biden emails suggest otherwise.
