The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) removed the “entire investigative team” from its criminal investigation into Hunter Biden Monday, which an IRS whistleblower claims is “clearly retalitory,” the New York Post reports.
The ousting was done at the request of the Biden Justice Department, a whistleblower’s lawyers told Congress in a letter.
Mark Lytle and Tristan Leavitt, the lawyers for the IRS agent, said “the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Supervisory Special Agent we represent was informed that he and his entire investigative team are being removed from the ongoing and sensitive investigation of the high-profile, controversial subject about which our client sought to make whistleblower disclosures to Congress.”
They added, “move is clearly retaliatory and may also constitute obstruction of a congressional inquiry.”
The whistleblower alleged the Hunter Biden probe has been corrupted by lies and politics.
