IRS Commissioner Dumbfounded by Hunter Biden Whistleblower Accusations; Hunter Biden: IRS Whistleblower’s Claims Are a ‘Felony’

By Breitbart. IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel was dumbfounded in a Thursday closed-door Senate Finance Committee meeting about IRS whistleblower complaints that contend two Biden administration political appointees within the Justice Department have blocked charges against Hunter Biden for tax violations, a source familiar with the meeting told Breitbart News.

Commissioner Werfel, who was placed as the head of the IRS by President Joe Biden, had no answer for Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) when she questioned him about the whistleblower’s bombshell allegations.

“When did you know about the whistleblower? When did you know about this misconduct of Hunter Biden? How did you find out, did you try to block any part of this investigation?” Blackburn demanded to know.

“I’m asking about your and the IRS participation in this, not the particulars of Hunter’s returns,” she added. . .

“Senator, um, this is the way I’m gonna, uh, I’d like to answer,” he said. “First of all, I, I think you know this. I, I’m, I’m only a few weeks into my term here at the IRS.” (Read more from “IRS Commissioner Dumbfounded by Hunter Biden Whistleblower Accusations” HERE)

Hunter Biden: IRS Whistleblower’s Claims Are a ‘Felony’

Hunter’s attorney, Chris Clark, said in a statement that “[i]t appears this IRS agent has committed a crime” by asking lawmakers for whistleblower protections to reveal allegations of deep politicization within the DOJ.

Clark, a high-profile attorney who leads Hunter’s criminal defense, said it’s improper because “it is a felony for an IRS agent to improperly disclose information about an ongoing tax investigation.”

“The IRS has incredible power, and abusing that power by targeting, embarrassing, or disclosing information about a private citizen’s tax matters undermines Americans’ faith in the federal government,” Clark said. (Read more from “Hunter Biden: IRS Whistleblower’s Claims Are a ‘Felony’” HERE)
