A whistleblower with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has alleged that federal prosecutors are going out of their way to stonewall a criminal investigation of Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden.
As reported by Just The News, a letter sent to Congress by the whistleblower’s attorney, Mark Lytle, alleges that he is willing to provide specific details to the congressional tax-writing committees regarding a major criminal tax charges case. While the whistleblower himself did not specifically mention Hunter Biden, Just The News separately confirmed that the probe in question is indeed related to the younger Biden. The probe in question is being led by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee.
The letter states that the agent has witnessed “preferential treatment and politics” being used by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to block any serious attempt to criminally prosecute Hunter. If revealed to be true, this would prove that Attorney General Merrick Garland lied under oath when he claimed that the DOJ had no involvement in the probe against Hunter, which he stated was being left entirely up to Weiss’s office.
Lytle’s letter reads, in part: “The protected disclosures: (l) contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee, (2) involve failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case, and (3) detail examples of preferential treatment and politics improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected.”
The letter was sent to the tax-writing committees since federal tax privacy laws give those committees special authority to receive and view such information when related to a tax crimes investigation.
As a result of the letter’s allegations, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) declared that it was entirely possible that “obstruction of justice” had been committed by the Biden Administration.
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” said Comer in a statement. “The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has been following the Bidens’ tangled web of complex corporate and financial records.”
Hunter Biden himself acknowledged in December of 2020 that he was under criminal investigation for tax-related matters. His representative revealed in 2022 that Hunter had paid approximately $2 million in overdue tax bills, and expressed his confidence that Hunter will ultimately be cleared of criminal wrongdoing.
