US President-elect Joe Biden will not discuss allegations about his son, Hunter, with candidates for the attorney general position, an aide says.

Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki told Fox News on Sunday that he is looking for an AG at “the highest level of integrity.”

“And that person, whomever it is, will be overseeing whatever investigations are happening at the Department of Justice,” she said.

The Trump administration has been targeting Biden’s son from the beginning of the 2020 presidential campaign.

“He will not be discussing it with anyone he is considering for the role and he will not be discussing it with a future attorney general," Psaki said. “It will be up to the purview of a future attorney general in his administration to determine how to handle any investigation.”

Democratic Senator Doug Jones and Merrick Garland, a federal appeals court judge, are among the top candidates to supervise the Justice Department.

Trump and his allies in Congress have raised questions about potential conflicts of interest from Hunter Biden’s position on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma at the time his father was vice president.
