Second IRS whistleblower surfaces in Hunter Probe after case purged

A second IRS whistleblower in the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) investigation of Hunter Biden for tax evasion has surfaced after the entire IRS team investigating the president’s son was expelled, it has been revealed. documents sent to Congress on Monday.

The whistleblower, a special agent in the IRS’ International Tax and Financial Crimes Unit, joins his supervisor who alleged in April that two Biden administration appointees in the Justice Department engaged in political interference in the investigation to block charges against Hunter Biden for tax violations against the recommendations. The first whistleblower also claimed that Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to appoint a special prosecutor in the case to provide some separation between the investigation and President Joe Biden.

The two whistleblowers intend to participate in a blockbuster hearing on Friday before the House Ways and Means Committee. They will share their concerns about alleged DOJ corruption within the department.

The second IRS whistleblower alerted Congress after the DOJ allegedly ordered him, along with his entire team, removed from the case. The new whistleblower has overseen the investigation since January 2020 and led 12 colleagues in the investigation.

The new whistleblower alleged on May 17 that management had excluded its team from the case after management learned of “long-standing concerns” about the handling of the investigation. The concerns reportedly angered a redacted “US district attorney…”

Delaware District Attorney David Weiss, appointed by the Trump administration, is the lead prosecutor in the case. Garland told Congress in March that Weiss had the autonomy to recommend changes, but Biden’s attorney general also admitted he had to approve the charges.

“In a busy meeting on October 7, 2022, the U.S. District Attorney of [redacted] became aware that the IRS and FBI had long-standing concerns about the handling of the case…After [redacted] continued to raise its concerns with the [redacted] USAO in a prosecution team call on October 17, 2022, he and his IRS team were no longer invited to further calls and prosecution team meetings on the case, the effectively excluding from the case,” reads a document sent to Congress.

The president's son is reportedly being investigated for tax evasion, money laundering, and gun and foreign lobbying violations by Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney David C. Weiss.

“For the past two years, my [supervisor] and tried to draw the attention of our senior management to some common issues with the investigation. I have requested countless…meetings with our chief and deputy chief, often to be left behind on an island with no news,” the agent sent to tax officials:

The absence of IRS-[Criminal Investigation] senior management’s involvement in this investigation is deeply troubling and unacceptable. Rather than acknowledging the need to ensure the close engagement and full support of the investigative team in this highly sensitive case, the response has too often been that we were isolated (even when I repeatedly said that I was not heard and thought I was unable to perform my job properly due to USAO and DOJ actions, my concerns were ignored by senior management).

The whistleblower also wrote that the DOJ and the U.S. Attorney’s Office are responsible for removing his team from the case.

“The final decision to withdraw the investigation team from [redacted] without really speaking with this team of investigators, in my opinion, the decision was made not to side with the investigators, but to side with the US Attorney’s office and the Department of Justice which we have been saying since been acting inappropriately for a while,” the person wrote. .

In turn, IRS Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the DC Field Office, Lola Watson, reportedly told the whistleblower on Friday to stand down:

You have been told many times that you must follow your chain of command. IRS-CI maintains a chain of command for many reasons, including trying to stop unauthorized disclosures. Your email yesterday may have included potential grand jury (i.e. 6e material) in the email subject line and content, and you included recipients who don’t not appear on the 6th list.

The whistleblower’s attorneys, Mark Lytle and Tristian Leavitt, wrote to the IRS on Monday fearing “retaliation” for the special agent that is “unacceptable and contrary to law.”

The first whistleblower supports much of the new whistleblower’s claims. According to the first whistleblower, “an assistant U.S. attorney and an attorney from the DOJ’s tax division on October 24, 2022 asked the IRS for ‘all of his case-related emails’ and ‘did a similar request to the FBI, “the New York Post reported.

IRS whistleblowers step in as Hunter Biden investigation may implicate Joe Biden. A witness who testified before the grand jury was reportedly asked to identify the “fat guy”.
