Yet another shocking revelation has twisted the ongoing criminal investigation into Hunter Biden. An Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigator, abruptly pulled from the case, has accused Justice Department officials and U.S. Attorney David Weiss of marring the investigation with political bias.
The IRS investigator was part of an oversight team assembled to ensure the investigation’s integrity. His dismissal, he claims, reveals a preference for the interests of the Justice Department and U.S. Attorney’s Office over those of the independent investigators. His voice joins a growing chorus of concern over the purported corruption seeping into this high-stakes inquiry.
In an email circulated to IRS leadership, the agent stated, “The ultimate decision to remove the investigatory team without actually talking to that investigatory team, in my opinion, was a decision made not to side with the investigators but to side with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and Department of Justice who we have been saying for some time has been acting inappropriately.”

Adding to the credibility of the allegations are the stern words from Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt, attorneys representing the dismissed IRS supervisor. The attorneys warn that such actions “chill the disclosures of other IRS whistleblowers who may wish to come forward.”
This concern follows a recent incident where the entire IRS team assigned to the Hunter Biden case was suddenly pulled from the case, allegedly at the Department of Justice’s behest. The dismissal occurred soon after these agents voiced concerns about how the Justice Department and U.S. Attorney’s Office handled the case. Lytle and Leavitt claim that this move “is clearly retaliatory and may also constitute obstruction of a congressional inquiry.”
Even as these allegations persist, the IRS continues its wall of silence. Although the agency has insisted that “retaliation against any IRS employee making a whistleblower allegation” will not be tolerated, it has made no public response to these claims. Justice Department representatives have also remained silent on these concerns.
In the spirit of transparency, the dismissed IRS supervisor plans to testify before the House Ways and Means Committee. This move signifies a determined push for accountability, even in the face of potential backlash.
This unfolding saga raises essential questions about integrity and the American justice system. The allegations made by the dismissed IRS investigator should serve as a call to action for officials and the public alike. Regardless of political affiliations, everyone should desire a transparent, just, and unbiased application of the law, free from political interference.
