The top watchdog at the Justice Department has been informed by a decorated IRS agent-turned-whistleblower that federal prosecutors appointed by Joe Biden have blocked criminal tax charges against his son, Hunter Biden, through “preferential treatment and politics.” The whistleblower provided concrete evidence that contradicts Merrick Garland’s recent testimony to Congress regarding the decision to bring charges against Biden being left to the U.S. Attorney for Delaware appointed by Trump.
A letter obtained by Just the News from the whistleblower’s attorney Mark Lytle to Congress revealed that the IRS agent wishes to provide details about a high-profile, sensitive case to congressional tax-writing committees, which are authorized to receive such information under federal tax privacy laws. The details could be shared with other committees in the coming weeks.
The letter does not mention Hunter Biden as a subject of the whistleblower disclosure. According to multiple people directly involved with the investigation, Just the News has independently confirmed the agent’s allegations involve the Hunter Biden probe being headed by Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, a Trump holdover.
Democrat and Republican members of multiple oversight committees in Congress received a letter Wednesday from Lytle that stated: “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.”

Since December 2020, Hunter Biden has been under criminal investigation for tax matters. His representative revealed he paid $2 million worth of overdue tax bills last year. According to Hunter, he is confident he will be cleared of all criminal charges.
In a pledge on Wednesday, from two powerful members of the House of Representatives, they vowed to investigate and hold accountable the Biden administration if it was involved in criminal activity. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, expressed concern about the possibility of “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 said in a statement to Just the News. “The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has been following the Bidens’ tangled web of complex corporate and financial records.”
“It’s clear from our investigation that Hunter and other members of the Biden family engaged in deceptive, shady business schemes to avoid scrutiny as they made millions from foreign adversaries like China,” the statement continued. “We’ve been wondering all along where the heck the DOJ and the IRS have been. Now it appears the Biden Administration may have been working overtime to prevent the Bidens from facing any consequences.”
Jason Smith, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said he would investigate where the facts lead.
“We appreciate this outreach and look forward to sitting down promptly with this individual to better understand the scope and detail of the concerns raised,” Chairman Smith wrote in a statement. “The Committee takes seriously any allegations of misconduct by government officials or offices and will, on behalf of American taxpayers, look into concerns that are brought to our attention. It is our responsibility to ensure the tax code is applied fairly and appropriately to all Americans – whether through the oversight efforts this Committee initiates or the need for oversight that is brought to our attention.”
In addition to working on high-profile Swiss Bank prosecutions, the IRS agent (whistleblower) has won several merit awards for his work investigating tax crimes around the world. As a result of his appearance now in such a politically charged case, a debate over unequal justice in Washington is sure to erupt.
Just The News further noted:
The whistleblower originally approached the IRS’ internal watchdog and Congress late last year with the help of prominent Democrat lawyer Mark Zaid, who previously represented clients whose allegations about a call with the Ukrainian president led to Donald Trump’s first impeachment in 2019.
The agent subsequently hired Lytle, a former federal prosecutor with significant experience in prosecuting complex tax matters with the Justice Department’s Tax Division. Lytle also represented former Twitter head of Trust and Safety Yoel Roth in his recent congressional testimony and is currently defending a former FBI supervisor named Timothy Thibault who has been accused of pro-Biden political bias in anonymous whistleblower disclosures to the offices of Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan.
