(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – On Monday, Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service (I.R.S.), claiming that I.R.S. informants had inappropriately provided information to congressional investigators regarding the Justice Department’s tax investigation into his financial affairs.
Hunter Biden’s attorneys contend that the I.R.S. whistleblowers inappropriately divulged the damning claims when they alerted Congress and news organizations of the Justice Department’s alleged handling of its tax investigation into the president’s son.
The whistleblowers alleged that Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf prevented investigators from asking about President Joe Biden’s reference as “the big guy,” and that the Department of Justice twice stopped United States Attorney David Weiss from filing more severe charges against Hunter Biden.
Attorney General Merrick Garland declined to appoint a special counsel in the tax investigation, and the I.R.S. recommended charges against Hunter Biden, which Garland disapproved.
The complaint against his father’s administration claims that “this assault on Mr. Biden’s rights involved the public disclosure of his confidential tax information during more than 20 nationally televised and non-congressionally sanctioned interviews and numerous public statements.”

The disclosures allegedly contained “detailed allegations regarding the specific tax years under investigation, the amounts of deductions, the nature of those deductions, and allegations of liability regarding specific tax years and the amount thereof, that could only be known to them based on a review of the physical tax returns themselves,” according to the lawsuit.
In June, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to release information on several alleged instances of political meddling in which the D.O.J. allegedly “thwarted, hampered, or interfered” with the I.R.S. tax inquiry of Hunter Biden.
In response, I.R.S. Commissioner Daniel Werfel acknowledged in July that agency whistleblowers can inform Congress of protected disclosures.
“As employees, you are the first line of defense to call out issues that raise concerns, and I want it to be clear that we will always encourage a ‘see something, say something’ philosophy,” the Commissioner wrote.
Hunter Biden filed a lawsuit against the I.R.S. as his lawyers reportedly urged the D.O.J. to charge the I.R.S. whistleblowers after the committee allowed the claims to be made public.
The D.O.J. intended to let Hunter Biden off the hook without filing any charges until two informants came forward, according to the New York Times:
“Now, the I.R.S. agents and their Republican allies say they believe the evidence they brought forward, at the precise time they did, played a role in influencing the outcome, a claim senior law enforcement officials dispute.
While Mr. Biden’s legal team agrees that the I.R.S. agents affected the deal, his lawyers have contended to the Justice Department that by disclosing details about the investigation to Congress, they broke the law and should be prosecuted.
Earlier this year, The Times found, Mr. Weiss appeared willing to forgo any prosecution of Mr. Biden at all, and his office came close to agreeing to end the investigation without requiring a guilty plea on any charges.
But the correspondence reveals that his position relayed through his staff, changed in the spring, around the time a pair of I.R.S. officials on the case accused the Justice Department of hamstringing the investigation.
Mr. Weiss suddenly demanded that Mr. Biden plead guilty to committing tax offenses.
As the testimony from the I.R.S. agents took hold, Mr. Biden’s legal team felt the ground shift beneath them. The U.S. attorney’s office suddenly went quiet.”
Weiss charged Hunter Biden with three crimes involving firearms last week.
There were no FARA or tax violations revealed.
Still, the Washington Post reported on Monday that Weiss “may soon file a new indictment against Hunter Biden in another federal court — possibly in California — over alleged tax crimes that the agents say they found in reviewing his finances from 2014 to 2019.”
