Yet another IRS whistleblower has alleged received a threat of retaliation for sounding an alarm about the Justice Department interfering with the investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. More thug tactics from the Biden administration who is seeking to transform federal agencies into enforcers to help him and his leftist minions push forward the progressive agenda.
The whistleblower is a special agent with the Internal Revenue Service who works as an employee within the international tax and financial crimes group. He was also a member of the investigative team tasked with working on the Hunter Biden case until it was suddenly shut down just a week ago, according to TheBlaze.
“Attorneys Tristan Leavitt and Mark Lytle represent the first IRS whistleblower, a supervisory agent who came forward last month. In communications to Congress, the lawyers explained that one of the case agents working the investigation into Hunter Biden was allegedly retaliated against after repeatedly making protected disclosures to IRS leadership, the Washington Examiner reported,” the report said.
“In an email sent to IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel and other agency leadership last Thursday, that IRS case agent — who allegedly worked the Hunter Biden probe since 2018 — said he believes he was removed from the case for doing the ‘right thing,’ i.e., raising concerns about interference,” TheBlaze continued.
The agent then wrote in an email:
The lack of IRS-[Criminal Investigation] senior leadership involvement in this investigation is deeply troubling and unacceptable. Rather than recognizing the need to ensure close engagement and full support of the investigatory team in this extraordinarily sensitive case, the response too often had been that we were isolated (even when I said on multiple occasions that I wasn’t being heard and that I thought I wasn’t able to perform my job adequately because of the actions of the USAO and DOJ, my concerns were ignored by senior leadership).
The ultimate decision to remove the investigatory team…without actually talking to that investigatory team, in my opinion was a decision made not to side with the investigators but to side with the US Attorney’s Office and Department of Justice who we have been saying for some time has been acting inappropriately.
Werfel, who has made a vow of vengeance against whistleblowers, has not responded to the email sent by the case agent.
A criminal investigations leader, the assistant special agent in charge of the field office in D.C., did issue a response, a scathing rebuke for going outside of the chain of command and even suggesting that he might have broken the law by revealing information that was protected by law.
“You have been told several times that you need to follow your chain of command. IRS-CI maintains a chain of command for numerous reasons to include trying to stop unauthorized disclosures. Your email yesterday may have included potential grand jury (aka 6e material) in the subject line and contents of the email, and you included recipients that are not on the 6e list,” that email goes on to say.
TheBlaze added, “A second response to the email, from the acting special agent in charge of the D.C. field office, sent an email to the entire office reminding staffers that ‘there should be no instances where case related activity discussions leave this field office without seeking approval from your direct report.’ However, federal employees are permitted by whistleblower laws to make disclosures to Congress.”
The left is desperate to keep dark deeds out of the light, just like the cockroaches they are.
