New Whistleblower Comes Forward in Hunter Biden Tax Case. And Things in the Case Could Now Explode – One whistleblower is cause for concern, but two constitute a pattern. That’s what is happening in the Hunter Biden investigation into his tax practices.

Another whistleblower has come forward – one who has been on the IRS investigatory team into alleged Hunter wrongdoing since 2018.

The IRS agent was part of the team that was moved from the investigation when his entire group was dismissed from the case in supposed retaliation.

Second Whistleblower Charges

The new person who came forward is a special agent in the IRS’s international tax and financial crimes group.

He worked under a supervisor who also wanted to testify in front of Congress because the investigation may have been slow-walked due to political interference from the White House.

The supervisor plans to testify in a closed meeting in front of the House Ways and Means Committee on May 26 about the way the Department of Justice has handled the investigation into the president’s son.

What Is Hunter Biden Being Accused Of?

The team investigating Hunter at the IRS has been at it for five years.

Hunter allegedly did not file tax returns and misstated his income to improve his tax liability so he would not have to pay as much to the IRS.

It is not clear why the probe into these transgressions has taken so long.

Hunter had allegedly failed to report millions of dollars he received from foreign business dealings while his father was vice president. Then he allegedly engaged in tax fraud. He could be charged with two misdemeanor counts of not filing tax returns and a felony count of tax evasion. The FBI is also looking into whether Hunter lied on a federal gun purchase application.

Like his supervisor, the new whistleblower is liable to talk about retaliation in his testimony to Congress and explain why he tried to raise his objections about delays in the investigation but was not able to resolve his concerns internally.

Hunter May Have Been Given ‘Preferential Treatment’

The supervisor had 12 workers beneath him, and all were removed by the Department of Justice after he reached out to Congress on April 19.

The first whistleblower alleged that Hunter was getting “preferential treatment.” The second whistleblower claims the leadership of the Department of Justice was “acting inappropriately.” He said he was threatened with “criminal conduct” by the IRS after coming forward and sharing more details about the DOJ.

letter obtained by the Washington Examiner from the lawyers of the original whistleblower said the IRS, “quickly responded with accusations of criminal conduct and warnings to other agents in an apparent attempt to intimidate into silence anyone who might raise similar concerns.”

The Bidens Believe They Are Innocent

Hunter Biden admitted there was a federal investigation into his taxes in 2020 after his father won his presidential election. But he said he was innocent, and his father said Hunter had done nothing wrong.

It will be interesting to see what the first whistleblower says to Congress. The hearing will not allow the media to be present, but details of the meeting will likely leak. The main point of contention is that the investigation has been going on for five years. It is time to either charge Hunter or leave him alone. The whistleblowers alleged that there was political interference, perhaps from the White House pressuring the DOJ and IRS.

If that is indeed the case, it would illustrate that the Biden administration is deeply afraid of Hunter being indicted.

Discovery during his trial could unearth more materials that show the president having financial ties to his son. This connection would be fodder for the president’s critics to point out that the elder Biden is not honest about his connection to Hunter’s business activity.

This could sway some voters to look at voting for the Republican challenger instead of the president.
