(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – A whistleblower from the Internal Revenue Service has told the US Congress that he wants to expose a coverup in the tax evasion probe against First Son Hunter Biden, a report reveals.
The intention of the Hunter Biden investigation whistleblower is revealed by a letter that his lawyer sent to a group of congressional committee leaders, obtained by The New York Post.
You can see the letter further down this post.
Lawyer Mark Lytle informed the nine congressional leaders that his client wanted to disclose “preferential treatment” and false testimony to Congress by a “senior political appointee.”
Lytle wrote that the whistleblower is “a career IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent who has been overseeing the ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020.”
Even though 53-year-old Hunter Biden is not mentioned in the letter by name, a congressional source told the Post that it refers to President Joe Biden’s son.
According to reports, Hunter Biden borrowed some $2 million last year to pay a tax bill on his income from abroad.
“It really doesn’t come down to his credibility, whether you believe him or not,” Lytle told CBS Evening News in an interview, noting his client has been with the IRS for over a decade.
“Because the things he’s been through are very well documented in emails, and other communications with the Department of Justice,” he stated, adding that his client possessed extensive documentation.
Representatives of the First Son did not comment on the matter, while the White House redirected the request for comment to the Justice Department and the IRS.
The wannabe whistleblower’s attorney addressed his letter to the top Republican and Democratic members on the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees and the House Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees. Whistleblower caucus co-chair Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) was also among the recipients.
“Despite serious risks of retaliation, my client is offering to provide you with information necessary to exercise your constitutional oversight function and wishes to make the disclosures in a non-partisan manner to the leadership of the relevant committees on both sides of the political aisle,” Lytle wrote.
He informed the congressional leaders that his client “has already made legally protected disclosures internally at the IRS, through counsel to the US Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, and to the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General.”
The lawyer, who previously represented former Twitter censor Yoel Roth during a House Oversight Committee’s probe, noted tax-record privacy laws mean the case would require guidance from Congress.
“Some of the protected disclosures contain information that is restricted by statute from unauthorized disclosure to protect taxpayer and tax return information,” Lytle wrote.
He said his client would like to share with Congress information under a federal law covering tax returns filed jointly by married couples and another law outlining prohibited actions by executive branch employees.
“My goal is to ensure that my client can properly share his lawfully protected disclosures with congressional committees,” Lytle concluded.
The House Oversight Committee is already investigating the Biden family members’ income from abroad.
“It’s deeply concerning that the Biden administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations,” commented House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY).
He vowed his committee would “work to hold accountable anyone in the Biden administration who may be covering up this criminal activity.”
