Attorney General William Barr, center, heading to President Trump's remarks about his Senate impeachment trial at the White House, has issued new restrictions over the opening of politically sensitive investigations.

WASHINGTON – In the wake of the Senate acquitting President Donald Trump in an impeachment trial over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political rivals including former Vice President Joe Biden, Republican senators are pressing ahead with their probes into the finances of Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

Last year, the top Republicans on two Senate committees - the Finance Committee and Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs - requested documents from the Treasury Department related to Hunter Biden's business relationship with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, as part of an investigation into whether the Obama administration acted improperly to benefit Burisma. The request sought "Suspicious Activity Reports" and other documents involving Hunter Biden and 10 other individuals and companies.
