Outraged Republicans say IRS is ‘complicit in the cover-up’ of Hunter Biden crimes


Republican lawmakers are slamming the IRS for being involved in an alleged ‘cover-up’ scheme by the Biden administration to conceal Hunter Biden‘s financial crimes.

According to a letter to Congress obtained by DailyMail.com, the IRS has removed the entire team probing Hunter Biden’s tax returns ‘in retaliation against a whistleblower who alleged his colleagues were covering-up the president’s son’s financial crimes.’

Those dismissal orders came from the Justice Department, the whistleblower’s attorneys said in the letter Monday.

Following the whistleblower’s revelations, House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., accused the IRS of being ‘complicit’ in the ‘cover-up’ of Hunter Biden’s illegal activities by the Biden administration.

‘The IRS is complicit in the cover-up of Hunter Biden’s tax fraud,’ Stefanik tweeted Tuesday. ‘There must be accountability.’

Hunter, 53, was spotted Monday, along with his father President Joe Biden, and First Lady Jill Biden, at University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for his daughter Maisy's graduation

‘Today the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Supervisory Special Agent we represent was informed that he and his entire investigative team are being removed from the ongoing and sensitive investigation of the high-profile, controversial subject about which our client sought to make whistleblower disclosures to Congress,’ the letter on behalf of the whistleblower states.

‘He was informed the change was at the request of the Department of Justice,’ Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt wrote.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., also slammed the alleged action by the IRS detailed in the letter, accusing the federal government of ‘once again’ may be ‘abusing its power’ by retaliating against a whistleblower.

A whistleblower, who is specifically alleging that the Biden administration is ‘obstructing justice’ by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for federal violations, he continued.

The top Republican said that Congress will ‘thoroughly investigate’ and hold accountable any administration officials ‘covering up’ any of Hunter’s crimes. 

IRS commissioner Daniel Werfel recently told Congress that his agency would not retaliate against whistleblowers. 

On April 27, Werfel testified before the House Committee on Ways and Means. 

He said: ‘I can say without any hesitation there will be no retaliation for anyone making an allegation or a call to a whistleblower hotline.’

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., brought up the letter by the whistleblower’s attorney during a separate hearing by the Senate Finance Committee Tuesday.

He called Hunter Biden a ‘wealthy tax cheat,’ pointing to the whistleblower’s allegations as another example of the weaponization of the government to protect Biden’s family.

He questioned former IRS official John Fort on the situation, who said that in his ’30 years’ in the IRS, he had not seen any team pulled off a case.

‘Former IRS official testified that in 30 years, he never saw an entire investigatory team pulled off a case. But that’s what happened to Hunter’s investigators,’ Johnson said. 

‘Unequal application of law and weaponizing agencies against citizens is becoming routine in Democrat administrations.’

Comer told FOX Business’ Larry Kudlow Tuesday that he’s ‘outraged.’

‘This is another example of this administration just completely out of control.’

The House Oversight Committee has accused 10 members of the Biden family – including Hunter – of being involved in ‘shady’ business deals where they profited off of the family name. 

Hunter, 53, was spotted Monday, along with his father President Joe Biden, and First Lady Jill Biden, at University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for his daughter Maisy’s graduation.

He still waits to find out if he will be charged with tax fraud as corruption claims pile up against his family.
