The following is an excerpt from Just the News.
A decorated supervisory IRS agent has reported to the Justice Department's top watchdog that federal prosecutors appointed by Joe Biden have engaged in "preferential treatment and politics" to block criminal tax charges against presidential son Hunter Biden, providing evidence as a whistleblower that conflicts with Attorney General Merrick Garland's recent testimony to Congress that the decision to bring charges against Biden was being left to the Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney for Delaware.
According to a letter from the whistleblower's attorney Mark Lytle to Congress obtained by Just the News, the IRS agent revealed he is seeking to provide detailed disclosures about a high-profile, sensitive case to the tax-writing committees in Congress, which have special authority under federal tax privacy laws to receive such information.
That could pave the way to share the details with other committees in coming weeks.
The letter does not state that the whistleblower disclosures are related to Hunter Biden.
However, Just the News has independently confirmed the agent's allegations involve the Hunter Biden probe being led by Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump holdover, according to multiple interviews with people directly familiar with the matter.
In a letter Wednesday to Republicans and Democrats overseeing multiple oversight committees in Congress, Lytle wrote: "The protected disclosures:
(l) contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee,
(2) involve failure to mitigate clear conflicts of interest in the ultimate disposition of the case, and
(3) detail examples of preferential treatment and politics improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances if the subject were not politically connected."

Hunter Biden has acknowledged since December 2020 that he has been under criminal investigation for tax matters, and his representative disclosed last year he paid overdue tax bills totaling $2 million.
He has expressed confidence he will be cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

Congratulations for promoting the Just The News article about this (actually, there are two --- the later version being a supplemented version of the first). AG Garland provided misleading information to Congress under oath. That's the polite way of calling AG Garland a fraud and a felonious liar, directly involved in both Obstruction of Justice and perjuring himself to cover up Obstruction of Justice (which would also be a second count of Obstruction of Justice).

Democrat Attorneys General are rarely sanctioned for lying to Congress. Eric Holder, anyone? Loretta Lynch meeting privately with Bill Clinton while the Hillary email server investigation was still ongoing?
Propriety is what they demand of opponents, not of themselves.
