IRS Halts Hunter Biden Probe Per DOJ Request

An attorney representing a whistleblower within the Biden administration delivered a compelling testimony to Congress on Monday, shedding light on the sudden removal of his client and the entire investigative team assigned to the high-profile Hunter Biden tax probe at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The attorney revealed the Department of Justice (DOJ) played a pivotal role in this decision.
In a letter obtained by The Federalist, addressed to congressional leaders, the attorney expressed his client’s distress.

In the letter, he conveyed that the representative of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Supervisory Special Agent was notified that both the agent and the entire investigative team would no longer be involved in the ongoing and sensitive investigation concerning a prominent and contentious matter.

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has publicly acknowledged since December 2020 that he is under investigation for tax fraud. IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel testified before the House Committee on April 27 that “no retaliation” would occur against anyone making whistleblower allegations.

However, the DOJ’s reported decision to remove the informant and the investigative team from the case appears to contradict this statement. The insider also revealed two political appointees within the Biden DOJ that ignored career investigators’ recommendations to indict Hunter Biden for tax charges.

Furthermore, the leaked letter to congressional committee chairs raises doubts about statements made by Attorney General Merrick Garland. During a Senate committee hearing, Garland assured Sen. Chuck Grassley that U.S. Attorney David Weiss, who is investigating Hunter Biden, would have the autonomy to pursue charges.

In response to the witness’ removal from the Hunter Biden probe, attorney Mark Lytle is urgently calling on Congress to address the matter promptly.

“Removing the experienced investigators who have worked this case for years and are now the subject-matter experts is exactly the sort of issue our client intended to blow the whistle on to begin with,” the attorney’s letter emphasized.

Congressional leaders are expected to engage in further discussions on the whistleblower’s accusations, weighing the potential implications of the DOJ’s involvement and its impact on the ongoing investigation.
