Hunter Biden's Attorneys Just Went Scorched Earth on IRS Whistleblowers

Hunter Biden is suing the Internal Revenue Service, arguing whistleblower testimony from career agents was meant to embarrass him and was a violation of his privacy.

"President Biden’s son Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit Monday against the Internal Revenue Service, charging that when agents who were investigating him told Congress and news reporters about their concerns that the case was not being managed properly, they violated his privacy rights as a taxpayer," the Washington Post reports. "Biden charges in the lawsuit that when two IRS agents went to Congress and news organizations complaining of alleged mishandling of the investigation by Justice Department officials, they disclosed information about the investigation, and about Biden’s taxes, that the law aims to keep secret."

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley is crying foul and classifying the move as whistleblower intimidation.

IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joe Ziegler testified in July that the agency gave Hunter Biden special treatment. They said under oath and that the investigation into his tax evasion was handled improperly and was influenced by politics. 

Shortly after the testimony Hunter Biden's sweetheart plea deal, which had been announced in June, fell apart in federal court.

While Hunter Biden's finances are back under the microscope of Special Counsel David Weiss, with potential charges coming in California and Washington D.C., Weiss blew through the statute of limitations after slow walking a five year investigation as Delaware U.S. Attorney -- a prosecutorial cardinal sin. 

Rep. Michael Turner (R-Ohio) asked witnesses about Hunter Biden’s unpaid taxes on income from Burisma in 2014, which he attempted to categorize as a loan. Both whistleblowers testified that Hunter Biden owes $145,000 in unpaid taxes on $400,000 of income from 2014. Due to DOJ’s slow walking, the statute of limitations expired, allowing Hunter Biden to get away with this tax evasion.
