According to a report from The New York Post, a whistleblower has come forward with information on an alleged coverup of a Hunter Biden tax evasion scheme. The report states the whistleblower is “a career IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent who has been overseeing the ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020.”
From The New York Post:
Although Hunter, 53, isn’t named in the letter, a congressional source confirmed the complaint pertains to the first son, who reportedly borrowed about $2 million last year to pay off a tax bill assessed on income earned overseas.
[Attorney for the whistleblower] Mark Lytle did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment, but in an interview with “CBS Evening News” said that his client has worked at the IRS for more than a decade and has extensive documentation.
“It really doesn’t come down to his credibility, whether you believe him or not,” Lytle said.
“Because the things he’s been through are very well documented in emails, and other communications with the Department of Justice.”
The White House referred The Post’s request for comment to the IRS and the Justice Department, which did not immediately respond. Representatives of Hunter Biden also did not respond.
Lytle addressed his Wednesday letter to the top Republican and Democratic members on the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees and on the House Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees, in addition to whistleblower caucus co-chair Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
“Despite serious risks of retaliation, my client is offering to provide you with information necessary to exercise your constitutional oversight function and wishes to make the disclosures in a non-partisan manner to the leadership of the relevant committees on both sides of the political aisle,” Lytle wrote.
“My client has already made legally protected disclosures internally at the IRS, through counsel to the US Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, and to the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General. The protected disclosures: (1) 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.”
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” said House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), who on Monday alleged that bank records show nine Biden family members appeared to benefit from overseas income.
Comer stopped by Hannity last night to address the latest developments on his end of the Biden Crime Family investigation.
