Fox News on Wednesday tried to reignite interest in the criminal investigation being conducted into Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

In a tweet posted on Wednesday morning, Fox News wrote that its sources claim the "Hunter Biden probe [is] 'active and ongoing' without White House interference."

Many of Fox News' Twitter followers noted that lack of White House interference in criminal investigations is actually supposed to be the norm, as former President Donald Trump in his four years repeatedly meddled in the DOJ's internal affairs by ordering his attorneys general to investigate his political opponents while also trying to remove former special counsel Robert Mueller.

Fox News was roundly mocked for its latest effort to revive the purported Hunter Biden scandal -- check out some reactions below.
