News broke on Tuesday that Biden’s crooked IRS fired the entire investigative team that was looking into Hunter Biden’s suspicious financials and his criminal avoidance of taxes.
The whistleblower is now saying that Biden axed the investigation because he had come forward with information about the work the IRS was doing.
The firings was allegedly performed at the orders of Biden’s crooked Department of Justice.
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,” Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt wrote, according to the New York Post.
The whistleblower has not publicly stated that the investigation was looking into Hunter, but congressional sources have confirmed it.
Per the Post:
“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,” the lawyers went on.
“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 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,” Lytle and Leavitt wrote.
The whistleblower’s team added: “We respectfully request that you give this matter your 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.”
This is just another example of the deep state moving to protect Democrats from suffering the consequences their criminal actions should warrant.
The DOJ has moved to shield Hunter Biden from an investigation into his criminal activity just ahead of the 2024 election cycle.
