A whistleblower with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is accusing Joe Biden-appointed federal prosecutors of intentionally weakening investigations that could potentially lead to criminal charges for Biden’s son, Hunter.
The allegations came in a letter shared on April 19, 2023, by attorney Mark D. Lytle of the Washington, D.C.-based Nixon Peabody LLP, who revealed that his client has been overlooking the “ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020 and would like to make protected whistleblower disclosures to Congress.”
Fox News reported that it was able to confirm the authenticity of the story.
Lytle’s letter notes that the IRS staffer has already gone through the proper legal challenges within their own agency. It also points out that these safeguarded disclosures “contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee” and that they “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.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) charged that “obstruction of justice” may have taken place.
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” Comer said in an exclusive statement to Just the News. “The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has been following the Bidens’ tangled web of complex corporate and financial records.”
“It’s clear from our investigation that Hunter and other members of the Biden family engaged in deceptive, shady business schemes to avoid scrutiny as they made millions from foreign adversaries like China,” he continued. “We’ve been wondering all along where the heck the DOJ and the IRS have been. Now it appears the Biden Administration may have been working overtime to prevent the Bidens from facing any consequences.”
Upon being asked for comment on the controversy, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to provide a response, claiming the Biden administration will not comment on anything related to an investigation.
Lytle stressed that despite facing a grave risk of retaliation, his client is willing to offer Congress the necessary information to exercise its constitutional oversight function and hopes to “make the disclosures in a non-partisan manner to the leadership of the relevant committees on both sides of the political aisle.”
