Federal prosecutors investigating Hunter Biden in Delaware hid the FD-1023 form housed by the FBI alleging a bribery scheme between the president and foreign actors from IRS agents who conducted a probe into the family finances.
On Thursday, the House Ways and Means Committee published transcripts from a pair of IRS whistleblowers alleging widespread interference from the Department of Justice over the course of the tax agency’s five-year investigation, which began as a probe into foreign pornography ring. The documents became public just days after Hunter Biden accepted a plea deal with prosecutors limited to two misdemeanor tax crimes and illegal firearm possession. While the latter charge is a felony, Hunter Biden can escape having it on his record with 24 months of sobriety and forfeiture of gun rights.
Whistleblower transcripts released Thursday revealed the Justice Department sought to thwart IRS investigators “in the form of delays, divulgences, and denials, into the investigation of tax crimes that may have been committed by the President’s son.” According to a supplemental submission in the form of a letter from Dean Zerbe, an attorney for the second whistleblower, officials in Delaware withheld the FD-1023 suggesting a Biden bribery scheme from the IRS.
“As Mr. X has testified, he was the IRS-CI Case Agent over the subject investigation at the time — and Mr. X has stated to me that he has never seen this FBI Form 1023 and that he does not recall ever hearing about this information being turned over in any meetings with the prosecution team in Delaware,” Zerbe wrote.
According to House Republicans who reviewed the FD-1023 in a secure location on Capitol Hill, President Joe Biden and Hunter Biden collected $5 million each from Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky.
Further, Mr. X informed me that this information could have been relevant to Mr. X’s investigation at the time of the subject as it related to a claim of $5 million being paid to the subject which directly ties to email correspondence reviewed between subject and a business partner of subject sent in May of 2014, which is believed to reference the $5 million being paid to subject from company xxx.
While congressional Democrats sought to downplay the allegations by claiming the bribery case was dismissed under the Trump administration, Attorney General Bill Barr made clear in an interview with The Federalist the document “was sent to Delaware for further investigation.”
