Whistleblower Says Hunter Biden Getting Preferential Treatment

Remember the time when a whistleblower by the name of Alexander Vindman alleged before Congress that then-President Donald Trump tried to influence Ukraine? His testimony occurred during Trump’s first impeachment trial, and Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) were agog at the possibilities. Here’s the guy who’s going to take Trump down!

Vindman’s testimony went nowhere. But I wonder if those same Democrats are doing a happy dance over the allegations of an IRS supervisor who says that the Biden Department of Justice has been giving Hunter Biden preferential treatment? Or, more likely, will they just try to brush it under the table, with the help of their compatriots in the media?

Mark Lytle, the attorney for the unnamed supervisor, sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday asking for whistleblower protections for his client. Late in the day, Catherine Herridge tweeted the letter, which began:

I represent a career IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent who has been overseeing the ongoing and sensitive investigation of a high-profile, controversial subject since early 2020 and would like to make protected whistleblower disclosures to Congress.

Attorney Lytle claimed that his client would disclose “examples of preferential treatment and politics improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected.” Plus, his client would also “contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee.”


Hold On — the Letter Doesn’t Actually Name Hunter Biden

If you read the letter, you’ll see that attorney Mark Lytle doesn’t provide the name of the first son at all. So is his client referring to Hunter, or maybe someone else?

Good question. However, through multiple interviews with people familiar with the matter, Just the News confirmed that this does indeed involve a probe of Hunter Biden, with Delaware US Attorney David Weiss leading the investigation. Plus, CBS’s Norah O’Donnell also reported on CBS Evening News that this is about Hunter.

Meanwhile, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said in a statement that “obstruction of justice” may have occurred:

It’s deeply concerning that the Biden Administration may be obstructing justice by blocking efforts to charge Hunter Biden for tax violations. The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability has been following the Bidens’ tangled web of complex corporate and financial records. 

It’s clear from our investigation that Hunter and other members of the Biden family engaged in deceptive, shady business schemes to avoid scrutiny as they made millions from foreign adversaries like China. We’ve been wondering all along where the heck the DOJ and the IRS have been. Now it appears the Biden Administration may have been working overtime to prevent the Bidens from facing any consequences.

Well, let me show you my shocked face.


What Do We Know About the Whistleblower?

As O’Donnell reported, we learn the the whistleblower is a ten-year veteran of the IRS. Just the News reported that this agent is no lightweight in the IRS, either. He has also investigated tax crimes internationally, including high-profile Swiss Bank prosecutions, and has won several merit awards.

The whistleblower initially approached the IRS’ internal watchdog and Congress last year with his concerns about the Biden investigation. Assisting him was Democrat lawyer Mark Zaid, who — surprise! — had previously represented Alexander Vindman. We see here that the agent didn’t use the services of a political sycophant lawyer like Lin Wood or Sydney Powell.

Later, the IRS whistleblower hired attorney Lytle, a former federal prosecutor with experience in complex tax issues with the DOJ’s Tax Division. Lytle had also previously advised Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of “trust and safety,” which demonstrates his professional legal objectivity.

In an interview with the “John Solomon Reports” podcast, Lytle said that his client was apolitical, having never made any political contributions. He’s not even on social media.

He is just a guy who likes his job as a law enforcement officer, as an investigator, and he takes it seriously, and he’s dedicated. And when he sees something that is not routine and doesn’t follow the rules, or … something maybe is affected by politics — that’s what made him come forward.

Lytle also said that his whistleblower client wants to be questioned by both Democrats and Republicans.

He’s insisted that when he comes forward, this is not to talk to just one party or the other party. He wants to make sure that when he tells his story, both sides are there, so that he can present it, and they can sort it out. He doesn’t want to be accused of picking a side, even if that might happen anyway. But he has information, it’s credible, and it’s supported by emails and documents.

In addition, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) said on Wednesday evening that committee members “look forward to sitting down promptly with this individual to better understand the scope and detail of the concerns raised.”

Meanwhile, we wait. It will be interesting to see how the media handle the testimony of this whistleblower, especially when compared with the adulation they gave Alexander Vindman.
