The Hunter Biden Scandal Is Going ‘Nowhere’

The Internal Revenue Service has removed the “entire investigative team” from the ongoing Hunter Biden tax fraud inquiry. That has led some to suggest the investigation is going ‘nowhere’.

The removal comes on the heels of a whistleblower’s disclosures to Congress about cover-up; the removal is allegedly a retaliation against the whistleblower.

And now, the case is reportedly “going nowhere.”

The latest updates have fueled anger and speculation.

The Hunter Biden Case Is Going ‘Nowhere’ 

“This is the narrative that the administration wants in the press. When you remove the entire investigative team you have to start from scratch, you have to get together with a team report and figure out what the information is,” Armstrong Williams told KATU.

“This administration has made a decision with the Justice Department that Hunter Biden will be charged if anything when taxes and it will be a slap on the wrist. No matter what happens the President will barn his son.”

Williams continued: “We need not remind the listeners that Hunter Biden is the son of the President of the United States and the President of the United States has made an emotional decision, not a decision whether someone is above the law that his son is going to protect him even in his criminal activities. He’s got to protect them until the bitter end and that’s the decision he made as a father. This investigation is going nowhere. They removed the whistleblower and this is the narrative that they’re putting out there talking about everything about Excel is criminal activity.”

The whistleblower is not happy either

Armstrong Williams isn’t the only one upset with the development; the IRS whistleblower has also condemned the move.

Through attorneys Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt, the unnamed whistleblower expressed that “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.’” But, in the eyes of the whistleblower, that’s exactly what happened next. Now the whistleblower is claiming the removal was retaliatory and may in fact constitute obstruction of a congressional inquiry. According to Lytle and Leavitt, the whistleblower had a right to make disclosures to Congress and is protected under 5 U.S.C. Section 2302.

Did Hunter Biden fail to pay taxes?

It appears that Hunter Biden did fail to pay taxes on millions of dollars worth of income – which is why the IRS is investigating him in the first place.

Hunter Biden confirmed in 2020 that the IRS was looking into his finances. And Biden borrowed $2 million to pay back IRS back taxes.

But paying the back taxes doesn’t absolve Biden of his original sin. So, Biden is still on the line for his initial failure to pay his taxes.

As a result of the IRS investigation, the DOJ appears to be on the verge of charging Hunter Biden. Last month, Hunter’s attorneys and DOJ officials met last month. Observers believed that the meeting suggested that charges were imminent.

If charges are brought against Biden, don’t expect Republicans to be sated; they’ve been gunning for Hunter Biden for years.

The ongoing House Oversight Committee investigation will continue churning, despite having failed so far to turn up any meaningful evidence to suggest that Hunter Biden has committed the alleged wrongdoings.
