IRS Whistleblower Will Testify to Congress That He Investigated Hunter Biden's Dodgy Foreign Income for Five Years, Until the Head of the IRS Removed Him Based on an Order from Biden's Wingman Merrick Garland

Remind me to email Jonah Goldberg, David French, and AllahPundit to thank them for saving the nation from corruption.

A second IRS whistleblower in the criminal investigation of first son Hunter Biden emerged Monday in documents sent to Congress following the purge of the entire investigatory team looking into President Biden's son for tax fraud and related crimes.

The new whistleblower is a special agent in the IRS's international tax and financial crimes group and worked on the Hunter Biden case since it was opened in 2018 -- until he was ousted without explanation last week.

The agent joins his supervisor, who plans to testify behind closed doors before the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday, in publicly registering concerns about how the Justice Department has handled the investigation.

Both IRS whistleblowers expressed concerns internally for years about the case being swept under the rug but got nowhere, and they lay out extensive claims of retaliation in new disclosures to Congress.

Hunter wrote in communications retrieved from his abandoned laptop that he had to share "half" of his income with his father.

The IRS supervisor, who oversaw the probe since January 2020, and his 12 subordinates were removed from the case -- allegedly on Justice Department orders -- after he contacted Congress on April 19 to allege "preferential treatment" and false testimony to Congress by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The "preferential treatment" was, if I remember correctly, refusing to grant additional US Attorneys the power to investigate Hunter Biden's crimes in jurisdictions outside of Delaware, or permitting the US Attorney for Delaware tasked with the (fake) investigation of Hunter Biden's Delaware crimes to investigate cases he wasn't already assigned. In other words, as new crimes were discovered, Merrick Garland made sure they weren't investigated by refusing to appoint any attorneys to investigate them.

New documents sent to Congress indicate investigators were cut out of discussions with prosecutors even earlier following a contentious meeting in October where IRS and FBI concerns about inaction were shared with an unnamed US attorney.

A whistleblower retaliation complaint sent last week to the Office of Special Counsel and shared with Congress says: "In a charged meeting on October 7, 2022, U.S. Attorney for the District of [redacted] became aware that both the IRS and the FBI had longstanding concerns about the handling of the case ... After [redacted] continued to communicate concerns to the [redacted] USAO in a prosecutorial team call on October 17, 2022, he and his IRS team were no longer invited to any further prosecutorial team calls and meetings on the case, effectively excluding them from the case."


The newer whistleblower, who worked on the probe since 2018, wrote in an email Thursday to seven senior IRS officials, including Commissioner Daniel Werfel, that he believes he was removed for doing the "right thing," including raising internal alarms about the Justice Department "acting inappropriately."

"As I'm sure you were aware, I was removed this week from a highly sensitive case ... after nearly 5 years of work. I was not afforded the opportunity of a phone call directly from my [special agent in charge] or [assistant special agent in charge], even though this had been my investigation since the start," the new whistleblower wrote.

"There is a human impact to the decisions being made that no one in the government seems to care about or understand," the 13-year veteran of the agency added.

"I ... have spent thousands of hours on the case, worked to complete 95% of the investigation, have sacrificed sleep/vacations/gray hairs etc., my husband and I (identifying me as the case agent) were publicly outed and ridiculed on social media due to our sexual orientation, and to ultimately be removed for always trying to do the right thing, is unacceptable in my opinion," he wrote.

It's unclear if the IRS agent's sexual orientation was criticized by supporters of Hunter Biden or by detractors who mistakenly assumed the detail meant he wouldn't conduct a serious investigation of a Democrat.

This is the garbage liberal Rupert Murdoch rag the New York Post. It's pretty clear to me.

"For the last couple years, my [supervisor] and I have tried to gain the attention of our senior leadership about certain issues prevalent regarding the investigation. I have asked for countless ... meetings with our chief and deputy chief, often to be left out on an island and not heard from," the agent wrote.

"The lack of IRS-[Criminal Investigation] senior leadership involvement in this investigation is deeply troubling and unacceptable. Rather than recognizing the need to ensure close engagement and full support of the investigatory team in this extraordinarily sensitive case, the response too often had been that we were isolated (even when I said on multiple occasions that I wasn't being heard and that I thought I wasn't able to perform my job adequately because of the actions of the USAO and DOJ, my concerns were ignored by senior leadership)."

....

According to the first whistleblower, an assistant US attorney and an attorney for the DOJ's tax division on Oct. 24, 2022, demanded from the IRS "all his emails related to the case" and "made a similar request of the FBI."

The FBI allegedly was "shocked by it, and the FBI refused."
