Attorney General Bill Barr said in a Monday press conference that he will not appoint special counsel prosecutors to investigate either President-elect Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden or voter fraud in the 2020 election, another significant break with President Donald Trump. Only the attorney general, not the president himself, has the authority to appoint a special counsel. And on Monday, Barr, who is set to leave the DOJ on December 23, threw cold water on the idea of naming a special counsel for either matter.
