The Biden administration is once again facing serious allegations of corruption, this time involving the president’s son, Hunter Biden. According to a whistleblower who came forward, federal prosecutors appointed by President Biden are being accused of providing preferential treatment to protect Hunter Biden from criminal tax charges.
The whistleblower, who has already made legally protected disclosures to the IRS and the Department of Justice, claims that there are clear conflicts of interest involved in the ultimate disposition of the case, and that politics is improperly infecting decisions and protocols that would normally be followed by career law enforcement professionals in similar circumstances. These allegations contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee, which makes them all the more concerning.
Despite the risks of retaliation, the whistleblower wishes to make these disclosures in a non-partisan manner to the leadership of the relevant committees on both sides of the political aisle. This shows that the concerns about corruption are not simply a partisan issue, but a matter of ensuring that the rule of law is upheld in our country.
It is now up to Congress to investigate these allegations and hold those responsible accountable. We cannot allow political influence to interfere with the fair and impartial administration of justice in the United States.
