Hunter Biden's IRS whistleblower news draws intense Twitter backlash: 'Coverup of Biden family corruption'

The news of an alleged IRS agent whistleblower claiming corruption in the investigation into Hunter Biden on Wednesday was a hot topic among social media users.


Twitter users and Republican figures had intense reactions to an alleged whistleblower claiming that the Biden administration is intentionally mishandling the Hunter Biden investigation.

Fox News confirmed that attorney Mark D. Lytle penned a letter calling for whistleblower privileges regarding his client, an IRS criminal supervisory agent. The letter read that the agent previously made legally protected disclosures at the IRS and stated that these disclosures "contradict sworn testimony to Congress by a senior political appointee."

"My goal is to ensure that my client can properly share his lawfully protected disclosures with congressional committees," Lytle wrote. "Thus, I respectfully request that your committees work with me to facilitate sharing this information with congress legally and with the fully informed advice of counsel."

Social media users quickly shared the "major breaking news" with many wondering whether there could be any political fallout regarding Hunter's connection to his father and whether mainstream media will report it.

Radio host Mark Simone remarked, "Major breaking news - a whistleblower exposes a deep cover up in the Hunter Biden investigation and involvement of Merrick Garland in it and, of course, corrupt Lester Holt doesn't even mention it on the evening news."

Former Homeland Security Under Director Michael D. Brown wrote, "Read this. Every civil servant who has this kind of information, is willing to come forth should be afforded every protection available under the law. Congress has a duty to hear the information and consider it in whatever or any investigation they are or may pursue."
