According to recent reports, a whistleblower at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has alleged that the Biden administration could be mishandling the investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden. The lawyer for the whistleblower, in a letter to lawmakers obtained by ABC News, claims that his client is an IRS criminal supervisory special agent who has been overseeing the ongoing investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020.
While the letter does not specifically name Hunter Biden, lawmakers have confirmed that he is the “high profile, controversial” subject the lawyer is referring to. The letter alleges that Hunter Biden has received preferential treatment and that there are clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case. The allegations are serious, as they involve politics improperly affecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals.
The lawyer for the whistleblower has made protected whistleblower disclosures to Congress. According to the letter, the protected disclosures contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee, and they 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.

The lawyer for the whistleblower has not provided any specific examples to support the allegations of preferential treatment that Hunter Biden has allegedly received. The Department of Justice (DOJ) declined to comment on the matter.
The allegations made by the whistleblower are deeply concerning. It is alarming to hear that the Biden administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations. The House Oversight Committee, which was one of the recipients of the letter, has been following the Bidens’ corporate and financial records and wondering where the DOJ and the IRS have been. It appears that the Biden administration may have been working overtime to prevent the Bidens from facing any consequences.
The investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs has been ongoing for some time, and these allegations of mishandling by the Biden administration may impede the progress of the case. It is imperative that the investigation be conducted in a fair and impartial manner, without political interference or preferential treatment.
