(RightWing.org) – Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has had a spotlight shone on his business dealings with Ukrainian oligarchs and the People’s Republic of China (Communist/PRC) based on the content of a laptop he abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop in the fall of 2020. Since the Republicans gained the majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections, heavy scrutiny has come upon Hunter and has resulted in a federal investigation into his taxes. Adding to the mix, a senior Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agent has recently stepped forward and asked for whistleblower protection from Congress so he can provide them with information.
Kyiv… Beijing… The White House
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has been investigating Hunter Biden for potential crimes that include tax fraud, money laundering, violating lobbying laws, and a felony gun charge. The probe stretches back to at least early 2019, and concerns over his business dealings were raised with then-Vice President Joe Biden in 2015.
A letter has been sent by attorney Mark D. Lytle, who is a partner with Washington, DC, law firm Nixon Peabody, to several of the chairs and ranking members of committees in both the House and the Senate. In it, he says he represents “a career IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent” who is seeking protection under the whistleblower statute “despite serious risks of retaliation.”
Hunter Biden’s camp is trying to claim the person wanting to speak has committed a felony already.
The document maintains the unnamed agent has already made “legally protected disclosures” to the US Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and to the DOJ Office of Inspector General and listed several of the topics discussed. Lytle says his client can provide testimony that would contradict that which was given “by a senior political appointee” during a previous congressional hearing.
Further, Lytle indicated his client would provide Congress with details of conflicts of interest and give them examples of preferential treatment given to Hunter Biden because of “politics and properly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed… if the subject were not politically connected.” The IRS agent understands that disclosure regarding a person’s tax returns is prohibited by law unless the lawmakers invoke appropriate federal statutes and pointed out his client has not even discussed it with him.
The story of Hunter Biden’s laptop was broken by the New York Post in October 2020. There were allegedly emails found on it that could possibly point to influence-peddling on behalf of the PRC by Hunter with his father while he was the sitting Vice President of the United States. However, the mainstream media did everything it could to bury and/or discredit the story. Days prior to the 2020 election, 51 “former intelligence officials” knowingly signed a letter falsely stating the Post’s story was a Russian disinformation tactic to disrupt the election.
The House Judiciary Committee said in an April 20 press release that it had received testimony from former Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Michael Morell that implicates Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Biden presidential campaign of being “the impetus of the public statement.” That same day, Ohio Congressmen Jim Jordan and Michael Turner wrote a letter to Blinken saying the new information makes it clear to them “the Biden campaign played an active role [in] preventing American citizens from making a fully informed decision” in the election.
