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.
Lytle also noted that his client alleged “clear conflicts of interest” with the investigator responsible for Hunter Biden, claiming that preferential treatment and politics affected protocols.
