Hunter Biden sues IRS for personal disclosures

by ian

Hunter Biden is targeting the IRS after two agents went public with their concerns.

Whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler claim they were hindered during a five-year investigation of the president’s son. But a new lawsuit says the agents revealed confidential tax information.

Hunter’s lawyer says his client’s privacy was violated 20 times through TV interviews and public statements. They’re asking the IRS to pay $1,000 in damages for each unauthorized disclosure and other unspecified damages.

This comes as the “sweetheart” plea deal that would have spared the president’s son from a felony trial fell apart back in July.

In light of this, one of the whistleblowers’ attorneys says Hunter is desperate.

Meanwhile, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is pressing for more information about the Justice Department’s original investigation of Hunter. He also set a date to interview Special Counsel David Weiss on Oct. 11.
