The D.C. swamp only ever looks out for itself. It doesn’t matter how many laws they have to break.
And this IRS whistleblower dropped a shocking bombshell that’ll make you sick.
If there’s one thing you’ll learn when you follow politics long enough is that there are two tiers of justice in this country.
If you were to do a quarter of the things politicians and their families do, you’d be locked away for life.
But when the elites do it, the system bends over backward to ensure they never see a cell.
And an IRS whistleblower is sounding yet another alarm that will make your head spin.
A whistleblower told Congress on Monday that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) removed the “entire investigative team” working on the Hunter Biden case at the request of President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to the New York Post, the whistleblower has been supervising the Hunter Biden inquiry since 2020.
In a letter to Congress, whistleblower attorneys Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt stated:
Today the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Supervisory Special Agent we represent was informed that he and his entire investigative team are being removed from the ongoing and sensitive investigation of the high-profile, controversial subject about which our client sought to make whistleblower disclosures to Congress. He was informed the change was at the request of the Department of Justice.
According to the Post, the whistleblower told congressional leaders last month through Lytle that he wanted to come forward with information about “preferential treatment” in Hunter Biden’s case and claimed Attorney General Merrick Garland gave false testimony to Congress when he assured lawmakers that Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss has unilateral authority to make charging decisions.
According to the attorneys’ letter, the IRS’s decision to dismiss the investigative team was “clearly retaliatory.”
The lawyers went on to say:
On April 27, 2023, IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel appeared before the House Committee on Ways and Means. He testified: “I can say without any hesitation there will be no retaliation for anyone making an allegation or a call to a whistleblower hotline.” However, this move is clearly retaliatory and may also constitute obstruction of a congressional inquiry.
Our client has a right to make disclosures to Congress … He is protected by 5 U.S.C. § 2302 from retaliatory personnel actions—including receiving a ‘significant change in duties, responsibilities, or working conditions’ (which this clearly is) because of his disclosures to Congress.
Any attempt by any government official to prevent a federal employee from furnishing information to the Congress is also a direct violation of longstanding appropriations restriction. Furthermore, 18 U.S.C. § 1505 makes it a crime to obstruct an investigation of Congress
The attorneys requested that Congress give the problem “prompt attention.”
“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,” Lytle and Leavitt added.
Hunter Biden’s counsel met with DOJ executives one week after the whistleblower came out last month, indicating an impending charging decision in his case.
Hunter Biden is being investigated for tax evasion, among other things, in connection with his foreign business dealings.
