After an IRS agent claimed that a tax investigation into the president’s son had been improperly politicized, Hunter Biden’s attorneys are reportedly scheduled to meet with US prosecutor David Weiss and a Justice Department official in the coming days. However, Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to name a special counsel in the case.
The DOJ has been looking into Hunter since May 2019 for tax fraud, money laundering, and breaking lobbying regulations. Weiss-led federal prosecutors apparently explored bringing charges against Hunter for three tax offenses and one firearms offense over a year ago.
Despite not having been charged as of yet, prosecutors may still do so, according to people familiar with the inquiry who spoke to CNN. The DOJ, Weiss, and Hunter’s lawyer will address the case in the coming days, according to numerous individuals with knowledge of the situation who spoke to CNN. It appears that Hunter’s attorneys requested the meeting.
Two Biden administration political appointees within the DOJ is allegedly seeking to impede prosecution against Hunter for tax breaches, according to allegations made by an IRS whistleblower on Wednesday.
The IRS agent also thinks Garland declined to establish a special prosecutor in the investigation so as to put some distance between the investigation and President Joe Biden.
Joe Biden may be implicated in the Hunter investigation. According to reports, a witness who testified in front of the jury was asked to name the “big guy.”
Garland maintains that Weiss is qualified to file charges against Hunter. Garland has stated, however, that any prospective charges against Hunter would require his personal approval.
According to Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), Garland and Biden are at fault for the alleged abuses.
“Under President Biden alongside Attorney General Garland, the rule of law and justice are not being applied evenly in America. They are both equally guilty and accountable for the alleged misuse, according to the IRS whistleblower,” he declared.
