We could soon have more information related to the Hunter Biden IRS case.
The House is set to vote on whether more relevant information should be released or kept private.
On Tuesday, June 20, 2023, the Department of Justice announced that it had filed misdemeanor tax charges and felony gun charges against Hunter Biden.
The report from the DOJ, in part, stated:
"The United States Attorney for the District of Delaware filed charges today against Robert Hunter Biden ('Hunter Biden') of Los Angeles. Hunter Biden has been charged with two misdemeanor tax offenses and a felony firearm offense and has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to the tax offenses and enter into a pre-trial diversion agreement with regard to the firearm charge at a proceeding to be scheduled by the assigned United States District Court judge.
"According to the tax Information, Hunter Biden received taxable income in excess of $1,500,000 annually in calendar years 2017 and 2018. Despite owing in excess of $100,000 in federal income taxes each year, he did not pay the income tax due for either year."
After the charges were announced, it was not long before a plea deal had allegedly been reached in the case.
The presiding judge tossed the deal, sending everyone back to the drawing board.
As this was taking place, several whistleblowers came forward to say that the IRS investigation that took place into Hunter was not done to usual protocols. For instance, they noted that Special Counsel David Weiss had been blocked from filing more serious charges against Hunter by the DOJ.
They also claimed that the IRS had recommended other charges that were never brought because they were blocked by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
There were then reports that retaliation had taken place against the whistleblowers, charges that were denied by top-ranking DOJ and IRS officials.
IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel wrote:
"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."
On Wednesday, September 26, 2023, the House was set to vote on whether to release the information to the public that would generally be protected by taxpayer secrecy laws. Exactly what that information was going to be had not yet been announced.
This is an argument that should have already been settled, in my opinion.
If Trump's tax information was leaked and released to the public, why should Hunter Biden be any different?
Now, again, we don't know the information that the House was set to vote on, but with his father being the sitting president and the high-profile nature of the case, one would think that even Joe Biden would want the information made public in the spirit of transparency, something he vowed would be the case for his administration.
If Hunter had not been tied to Joe, my opinion on this would be far different, but this impacts the presidency, so the American people have a right to see this information.
