For weeks, the Washington, D.C. whispers, especially since former President Donald Trump’s latest Mar-A-Lago indictment, predicted a Hunter Biden slap on the wrist that will not stop Joe Biden’s unfavorable numbers to increase and his democratic voter rejection polls to continue to rise.
The wheels of justice sometimes move as slow as molasses, but if the Hunter Biden scandal investigations were a gambling bet, the odds have increased that the Biden White House will lose - for now, at least, in the court of public opinion.
On Thursday, the wheels may come off after today’s Hunter Biden IRS plea deal and gun discretion agreement.
“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery,” panel Chairman James Comer said Tuesday.
The House Ways and Means Committee has now moved to release the testimony and evidence from an IRS whistleblower, who has alleged the DOJ engaged in political interference in the criminal tax case against Hunter Biden.
The committee claims to have evidence that federal agents were focused on a more significant case against Hunter Biden that involved tax evasion on hundreds of thousands of dollars of income from Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.
The House Ways and Means Committee could vote as early as Thursday to release IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley’s testimony that shows that federal prosecutors allowed the statute of limitations to expire on counts involving earlier and larger tax evasion than those addressed in today’s IRS plea agreement, and that DOJ prosecutors impeded FBI and IRS agents from doing their jobs.
