In a letter sent to Congress, the anonymous whistleblower’s attorney, Mark Lytle, alleges that his client is willing to provide specific details about a serious criminal tax charges case.
The whistleblower did not specifically mention Hunter Biden, but Just The News has separately confirmed that the investigation he is blowing the whistle on — which is being led by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee — is related to the president’s son.
According to Lytle’s letter, the whistleblower is an IRS agent that has witnessed the Department of Justice (DOJ) using “preferential treatment and politics” to block any serious effort to criminally prosecute Hunter Biden.
If his claims are proven true, they would confirm that Attorney General Merrick Garland lied under oath when he stated that the DOJ was not involved in the Hunter Biden probe and claimed that Weiss’ office had complete control over the investigation.
The letter states: “The protected disclosures: (l) 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.”
The whistleblower’s attorney specifically sent the letter to the tax-writing committees in Congress because federal tax privacy laws provide those committees with special authority to receive and view this kind of information when it is related to a tax crimes investigation.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has responded to the whistleblower allegations, stating that he believes it is possible that the Biden administration had committed “obstruction of justice.”
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” Comer wrote in a statement. “The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has been following the Bidens’ tangled web of complex corporate and financial records.”
In December 2020, Hunter Biden admitted that he was being investigated for tax-related crimes. Last year, a representative for Hunter revealed that the president’s son had paid roughly $2 million in overdue tax bills — claiming that he was confident Hunter would be cleared of any wrongdoing in the matter.
Speaking with conservative podcast host Benny Johnson, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) discussed the whistleblower and the implications for the “Biden Crime Family.”
“We’ve got a Biden Crime Family, but it doesn’t stop there, I think it’s gonna spill over to the other people as well and I think you’re gonna see people come in and try to cover this thing up and try to destroy documents,” Biggs said.
