FIRST ON NY: George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley cautioned that if “half” of the IRS whistleblowers’ claims are substantiated, the investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax evasion could suffer a significant blow to its integrity and credibility. Turley stressed that while the allegations remain unverified, they are deserving of investigation. He emphasized that Americans should remember that allegations do not equate to proof. Turley expressed concern that if even a portion of the allegations are true, they could undermine public trust in the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes.

According to Turley, the IRS whistleblowers’ claims, although unverified, hold weight as they include evidence provided under the threat of prosecution for dishonesty. Additionally, the alleged attempt to impose felony charges may have direct involvement or knowledge from the whistleblowers, lending credibility to their allegations. Turley warned that if searches were blocked or questions were limited, it could confirm suspicions regarding the investigation.

The comments from Turley come amidst damning revelations made by IRS whistleblowers regarding Hunter Biden’s tax evasion probe. A whistleblower claims that Justice Department investigators sought to restrict questioning related to President Biden within the investigation against Hunter Biden, despite objections from the FBI and IRS. The House Ways and Means Committee released testimony from two IRS whistleblowers, who accused officials from the Justice Department, FBI, and IRS of interfering in the investigation. The whistleblowers alleged that political influences affected decision-making in the case.

One of the whistleblowers, Gary Shapley Jr., who supervised the investigation at the IRS, stated that decisions made throughout the probe seemed to favor the subject of the investigation, citing instances where references to Hunter Biden’s father were involved. Shapley mentioned text messages and emails obtained from Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski that raised questions. In December 2020, investigators planned to interview Biden’s business associate Rob Walker regarding an email mentioning “Ten held by H for the big guy.” However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf objected to asking about the “big guy” and “dad.” This prompted pushback from others in the room, including the FBI.

It is worth noting that the term “the big guy” has been associated with Joe Biden.
