Graham, RS.C. he told reporters on Wednesday that he had not yet spoken to Trump about the situation, but added that he thought appointing a special prosecutor was “a good idea.” The senator has sought the help of a special adviser to investigate whether “crimes have been committed” and to identify possible “conflicts” in the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden.

“I definitely ask for special advice to investigate all things Hunter Biden does to see if he is in conflict with the Biden administration over his business dealings with Ukraine and his activities flooded by Russian agents. Chinese government,” Graham said.
Hunter Biden’s overseas business relationships have been under intense scrutiny in recent months. President Trump and other prominent critics have accused Hunter Biden of enriching his father’s political influence with his dealings in Ukraine and China during his time as vice president of the Obama administration.
The son of the elected president revealed earlier this month that the U.S. law firm in Delaware is investigating his “tax affairs.” Joe Biden said Wednesday he was “confident” Hunter hadn’t committed a crime.
Graham pointed out that a special adviser had been appointed as a precedent for a similar view of Hunter Biden’s dealings to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia after the 2016 election.

“Let me just say: If you think you needed special advice to see Trump’s world about Russia, how can you say you didn’t need special advice about Hunter Biden?” Graham said.
Trump spoke to top administrative officials, including White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, about the appointment of a possible special adviser, the Associated Press reported earlier this week. The president was reportedly “angry” that the resigning attorney general William Barr did not disclose the federal investigation against Hunter Biden before the 2020 election.
