News of an alleged whistleblower claiming that the Biden administration is intentionally mishandling the Hunter Biden investigation has caused an uproar among Republicans.
Attorney Mark D. Lytle has requested whistleblower privileges for his client, an IRS criminal supervisory agent, who previously made legally protected disclosures at the IRS.
The attorney’s letter claims that these disclosures contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee, and requests that congressional committees facilitate sharing this information with Congress legally and with the fully informed advice of counsel.
Many Republicans are calling for further investigation into Hunter Biden and the Biden administration’s connection to potentially shady dealings.
Former Homeland Security Under Director Michael D. Brown took to social media to say, “Congress has a duty to hear the information and consider it in whatever or any investigation they are or may pursue.” Kentucky Rep. James Comer is also calling for accountability for anyone in the administration who may be covering up this criminal activity.
While Hunter Biden has not been charged with any crimes, the allegations of preferential treatment and politics affecting protocols are a cause for concern.
