US Attorney probing Hunter Biden asked to stay on

Washington: The prosecutor overseeing the tax investigation tied to Hunter Biden will remain in his post, while the Biden administration asks other U.S. attorneys appointed by President Trump to resign, according to Fox News.

U.S. Attorney David Weiss of Delaware, who is handling the investigation into the president’s son, will stay on in his role. It is standard practice for a new administration to request the resignation of all U.S. attorneys upon entering office.

John Durham, the U.S. district attorney in Connecticut who was appointed as special counsel to probe the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation, will resign from his post but remain on as special counsel.

The DOJ has been investigating Hunter Biden’s finances since 2018, including taking a closer look at some of his Chinese business dealings and other transactions. He confirmed the existence of the investigation in December after federal investigators served him with a subpoena seeking financial information.
