Hunter sues IRS, alleges IRS whistleblowers improperly disclosed information

Hunter Biden launched a lawsuit against the IRS on Monday, alleging that IRS whistleblowers improperly disclosed information to congressional investigators about the Justice Department’s tax investigation into his financial affairs .

Hunter Biden’s lawyers say that when IRS agents briefed Congress and news organizations about the Justice Department’s alleged mishandling of its tax investigation into the president’s son, whistleblowers from the IRS allegedly improperly disclosed the damning allegations.

Among the allegations, whistleblowers alleged Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf refused to allow investigators to ask questions about President Joe Biden being “the big guy,” DOJ twice blocked U.S. Attorney David Weiss to bring harsher charges against Hunter Biden, Attorney General Merrick Garland. declined to appoint a special counsel in the tax investigation and the IRS recommended charges against Hunter Biden that were not approved by Garland.

“This attack on Mr. Biden’s rights involved the public disclosure of his confidential tax information during more than 20 nationally televised, non-Congressionally sanctioned interviews and numerous public statements,” the lawsuit alleges. government of his father.

The disclosures included “detailed allegations regarding the specific tax years under investigation, the amounts of deductions, the nature of those deductions, and allegations of liability regarding specific tax years and their amount, which could only be known to them based on an examination of the physical tax returns themselves,” the lawsuit claims.

In June, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to make public the numerous instances of alleged political interference in which the DOJ “thwarted, obstructed, or interfered” with the IRS tax investigation of Hunter Biden. In turn, IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel in July upheld the right of agency whistleblowers to make protected disclosures to Congress.

“As employees, you are the first line of defense in reporting issues that raise concerns, and I want to make it clear that we will always encourage the ‘see something, say something’ philosophy,” a- he writes.

Hunter Biden’s lawsuit against the IRS comes as his lawyers reportedly pushed the DOJ to pursue whistleblowers after the committee voted to approve public disclosure of IRS whistleblowers’ allegations.

According to new York Ttimesthe DOJ planned to let Hunter Biden go without charges until two whistleblowers came forward:

Today, IRS agents and their Republican allies say they believe the evidence they presented, at the precise time they did so, played a role in influencing the outcome, a claim disputed by senior law enforcement officials. Although Mr. Biden’s legal team acknowledges that IRS agents influenced the deal, his lawyers have argued to the Justice Department that by disclosing details of the investigation to Congress, they violated the law and should be prosecuted.

Earlier this year, the Times found, Mr. Weiss appeared ready to drop any charges against Mr. Biden, and his office came close to agreeing to end the investigation without requiring a guilty plea to any charges. But the correspondence reveals that his position, relayed by his team, changed in the spring, around the time two IRS officials handling the case accused the Justice Department of stalling the investigation. Mr. Weiss suddenly demanded that Mr. Biden plead guilty to tax crimes.

As the IRS agents’ testimony took hold, Mr. Biden’s legal team felt the ground shift beneath its feet. The U.S. Attorney’s Office suddenly went silent.

Last week, Weiss indicted Hunter Biden on three gun-related charges. No tax or FARA violations have been filed, although Weiss “may soon file a new indictment against Hunter Biden in another federal court – potentially in California – for alleged tax crimes that agents say they discovered while examining its finances from 2014 to 2019”, the Washington Post reported Monday.
